You've got bulb questions? I've got bulb answers.
What size bulb do you need?
The type & wattage bulb you need is dependent on which warmer that you have. All Scentsy warmers that use a bulb (not all warmers do) will have one of three sizes & wattages.
If you have a mini-warmer then you will need a 15w bulb with a candelabra stem. A lot of people go to the local hardware store and get a nightlight bulb. Then they call me and say it doesn’t melt their wax. That’s because it’s typically a 4w nightlight bulb. It won’t work. Buy authentic Scentsy bulbs and you will have no problems.

Or maybe you need a bulb for a full-size warmer. Then you will need either a 20w or 25w bulb.
But how can you tell which one you need? Use one of these four ways:
- You can check the current catalog and if your warmer is still current & featured then you will see the wattage listed.
- Check the bottom of your warmer. There is a handy-dandy grey sticker that lists the wattage of the bulb you need.
- You can check this chart from Scentsy corporate office.
- You can ask me! I can always direct you.

The Bottom Line
Don’t cut corners. Get you some authentic Scentsy bulbs and never worry. Grab a 3 pack in the size and wattage you need. Then you will be stocked up for quite a while.
