Helpful Tips to Help You Enjoy Your New Scentsy Warmers

Here are some helpful tips to help you enjoy your Scentsy Warmers.

As a longtime Scentsy Independent Consultant/Director, sometimes I forget what it's like for our brand new Scentsy customers. I keep hearing questions such as, how long will my wax last? Where do I get more wax? How do I clean out my dish? Where can I buy another warmer? I see other wickless candles at the store, but the label doesn't say SCENTSY...Do they sell SCENTSY in stores? What about replacement bulbs? Here are some useful tips to help our new Scentsy customers thoroughly enjoy their new Scentsy products.


Where Can I Buy Scentsy?

Authentic Scentsy ProductsIf you are a new Scentsy customer or received Scentsy as a gift, congratulations! Scentsy makes some of the most unique and well built fragrance delivery systems in the world. We know you'll be very happy and hope to help you along the way.

Almost any experienced Scentsy customer will tell you, there's absolutely nothing on the market that can compare to Scentsy.

UPDATE! In addition to the traditional warmers  & wax we share about here, Scentsy now offer a full range of fan diffusers that do NOT use wax. Some are even cordless warmers! These new diffusers use fragrance Pods and they work terrific!

Also, there are over eighty different amazing fragrances. There's so much more, but the best way to find out more is to browse Scentsy online.

Instructions for Setting Up a Mini Warmer

Setting up a nightlight or mini warmer is quite simple but we have special mini warmer set up page with step by step instructions and tips. It also includes how to convert one to a tabletop warmer.

Video Instructions for Mini Warmer Set Up
Because there's sometimes confusion about the different mini warmers or nightlight warmers, I asked my husband Pete to make this instructional video.

How Much Wax to Use

How Much Wax Should Be Used in Scentsy Warmers?

How Much Scented Wax to Use
The amounts of wax you'll need will vary depending on the size of the warmer and the size of your room.

First, see your Scentsy Bar and notice each bar contains eight small cubes of scented wax. For the small night light warmers or mini warmers, you only need one cube at a time. Most people use the night light warmers in outlets located above counters or small rooms such as a bathroom. You only need to use one small cube at a time, and some customers even cut the cube and use half at a time.

If you have a mid size or larger warmer, we usually suggest two cubes at a time, at the most! Try one cube, then one and a half and see how it goes. Some fragrances are stronger than others, so it's best to experiment and see what works best.

You'll see many photos displaying warmers with 3 or 4 cubes of wax, but we suggest ignoring those. Remember, more wax isn't always better. Try experimenting to determine what works for your home your preferred fragrance. Often you can get by using less wax that one might think.

How Long Will My Scented Wax Last?

Placing Wax in Scentsy Warmer Dish
It's important to understand how the scented wax works, so we've done our best to explain below.

First, the wax will not evaporate or dissipate. Each single cube of wax will continue to provide a fragrance for between 10 and 20 hours. If you put in two cubes or more, it will not last any longer, and that's why we suggest starting out with less. Once you put wax into the dish and warm it, the clock starts ticking. Also, the length of time will wary, depending on the fragrance. Some really do last longer than others. I've heard reports from my customers saying they actually got 40 to 50 hours off of one and a half cubes. This is amazing and is not the norm!

One Scentsy bar contains eight cubes. If you get 15 hours out of each cube, a full Scentsy bar will yield 120 hours of fragrance. Considering the price, that's a heck of a deal, especially when compared to a scented candle!

How to Change the Wax and how do I clean the dish?

Scentsy Fragrance Delivery Systems

3 Examples of Scentsy Fragrance Delivery Systems

If you don't want to spend the money on the cotton pads, follow the suggestions below to remove the wax. This is the way I clean my warmers.

Nightlights & Mini Warmers
For the small night light or mini warmer, it's best to turn the warmer off and let the wax cool for a few minutes. Once the warmer is safe to touch and the wax starts to harden, simply unplug the warmer and empty the soft wax into a trash can, using a paper towel or tissue. Just wipe the dish with a towel and you're all set to put in a new cube of wax.

Standard Tabletop Warmers
For the larger table top warmers, it's much easier. It's still best to wait a few minutes for cooling. First, turn off the warmer and wait until it cools a bit. Once you can safely handle it, lift the dish from the top of the warmer and empty it into a trash can. Then, simply wipe the dish clean with a paper tower and you're all set. Place the dish back on the warmer and start your new wax warming.

Battery Warmers
The battery warmers use Scent pods and DO NOT use the wax, so there is no cleaning. You can have a look at the scent pods here.


Scentsy Light Bulb Tips

Scentsy Replacement Bulbs

15, 20 and 25 Watt Scentsy Replacement Bulbs.

Scentsy Bulb Sizing Chart

Bulb Sizing Chart

Keep in mind, not every Scentsy warmer uses a lightbulb. We also carry element warmers and of course, there's no bulb for those. Also, there's no element replacement available.

The 15 watt light bulbs for the small Scentsy night light warmers can be very difficult to find, but you can find the 20 watt mid size bulb, and the 25 watt full size bulb, almost anywhere. The small night light warmer bulbs are small bulbs, similar to the old time type of bulbs that were used on Christmas trees, but you need 15 watts! Most of the light bulbs that are shaped like the night light warmer light bulbs, are of a lower wattage. Do not waste your money buying a lower wattage replacement bulb. The bulb for your night light warmer MUST be the exact same size bulb that came with your warmer, but 15 Watts. The lower wattage bulbs will not keep your wax melted.

We suggest buying a couple of replacement bulbs the next time you buy more wax. The Scentsy replacement light bulbs in our home tend to last six months to a year, but we use the warmers often. Just like any other light bulb in our home, we keep spares on hand so we always have one when we need it.

Scentsy Colored Light Bulbs

We carry a variety of warmer light bulbs

NEW BULBS - FYI, now we have bulbs in various colors. There's also a larger wattage bulb for certain warmers.

Not Sure of Your Light Bulb Size? See the Sizing Chart here!

Scentsy Replacements & Accessories Available

We carry many Scentsy replacement parts, accessories and even replacement dishes for your warmers. It rarely occurs, but if you break a dish or lid, we may have a replacement. There are also warmer stands available in square and circle design that you might like.

Be Safe and Turn Warmer Off at the End of the Day

Treat your warmers just as you would any other desktop or tabletop lamp. Just like a lamp, scentsy bulbs and warmers get hot. The more you use them, the less life is left in the bulbs or elements. It's a good practice when you're done with your warmer for the day, just turn off the switch. You can leave the wax in the dish, let it harden, and use it again next time.

    Do I have to unplug my large warmer every night or can I leave it turned on for several days at a time? I really like the smell in the house and I like to use the light as a night light for my family.
    Please respond via email as to I don’t get on this site normally.

    • Mary Gregory on July 10, 2015 at 4:27 pm

      Hi Wendy!

      You can leave your large warmer plugged in as long as you want! Remember, many authentic Scentsy candle warmers double as a night light or small lamp and can be treated like any other lamp. Keep in mind though, the fragrance emitted from your warmer will only last so long, and that often depends on which scented wax fragrance you are using. Typically, my husband and I like to change our wax every 24 hours or so. That means, the longer you keep your warmer on, the sooner you’ll have to replace your light bulb. Also, just link any other lamp, the more you use it, the more often light bulbs will need to be replaced.

      Your comment comes at a good time for us to remind our visitors, the scented wax does not evaporate. We’ve had some customer’s contact us about how often they should replace their wax and the simple answer is, when your wax quits emitting that wonderful aromatic fragrance. Even though you can see the wax in the dish, if it’s been used for more than about 3 days, it’s probably time to replace the wax! BTW, the best way to SAVE when buying wax is to Combine and Save. You can get six Scentsy Bars for just $30, so it’s like getting one bar free! Click or tap here to take advantage of this great deal!

      We hope we’ve answered your question and encourage everyone to please leave their comments, and we’re happy to reply!

        How do I get red wax off my lace ceramic wall warmer. The outside of it.

        • Mary Gregory on September 11, 2016 at 9:09 pm

          Hi Susie,

          This is s tough one! I assume you’ve tried to just scratch at the spot while the wax is dry to see if the wax will crumble off on it’s own. If that didn’t work you might try warming up the spot of wax and blot the wax off with a paper towel. You could try using a blow dryer to heat the area. Be patient with this as you may have to go through the process repeatedly to get the job done. Once the wax is removed, you may need to dab it with rubbing alcohol. If it’s a very small spot, you may want to use a q-tip.

          Good luck!

  2. chelsea on July 14, 2015 at 10:24 am

    I can’t remember if my warmer is a mid-size or full-size. It’s the leopard print style, but I’m not sure which bulb to buy and can’t find anything to reference from online. Do you know which size this style of warmer is? thank you!

    • Mary Gregory on July 14, 2015 at 12:00 pm

      Hi Chelsea,

      The Leopard Scentsy Warmer was a Deluxe Full Size Warmer and takes a 25 Watt Bulb. You can see for yourself the light bulb sizing chart here at our website. Here’s the link. Buy Lightbulbs!

      Just scroll down just below the light bulbs and you’ll see a tan colored box to click. It says “See the Light Bulb Sizing Chart to Confirm Your Size”.

      I really like that Leopard Warmer as well and I hope our information helps.



      • Jen on January 19, 2022 at 6:28 pm

        Do you know what size the dish is that goes to the leopard print warmer or which other one would fit it?

        • Pete Gregory on January 20, 2022 at 7:30 am

          Sorry, but unless you can find the exact replacement dish as displayed here, we’re unable make a recommendation as to which one will fit.

    • Kellie on April 29, 2021 at 8:05 am

      I absolouty love scensty products but I’ve recently found that it’s the wax melts causing me headache and nauser due to an allergy .. can I still you the warmers as a night lamp with putting in the wax melts as they look lovley around my house lit up

      • Pete Gregory on May 11, 2021 at 1:13 pm

        Yes, absolutely you can use the warmers as nightlights, without wax. You are right, the traditional warmers with bulbs look lovely, especially at night time in low light rooms.

  3. Victoria on July 28, 2015 at 8:38 pm

    Was cleaning my warmer, and apparently there was a leak somehow, now there is wax in the bulb socket. Am I able to clean it, or will have to get a new warmer?

    • Mary Gregory on July 29, 2015 at 7:08 pm

      Wow Victoria! You are in a bit of a fix. The first thing you want to do is of course, is to unplug your warmer. I’ve actually never had this happen, but I’m thinking I would maybe try using my blow dryer to warm up the inside of the warmer. Then, try blotting the wax up with a paper towel. Fitting the paper towel down inside the socket might be tricky, so you may have to try experimenting with using a Q tip. I believe it could be done, and you should be able to avoid buying a new warmer.

      Good Luck and please come back and share your results!

      Freeze you warmer an wax comes out so easy.

      • Mary Gregory on September 9, 2016 at 4:34 pm

        The freezing might work, but it’s quicker to use cotton balls. If it’s the type of warmer with no dish to remove, I usually use the cotton balls. If it’s a removable dish, I just empty into garbage.

  4. sj on December 17, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    I have the sugar skull one, can I leave the lid on it while it is on.the lid has holes

      Yes! You can absolutely leave the lid on this particular warmer. Enjoy!

    what waxes last 40-50 hours

    • Mary Gregory on September 9, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      Hi Sarah,

      I guess we missed replying your comment. My husband used Perfectly Pomegranate Scentsy Bar wax melts at his office and he get’s a crazy amount of long lasting fragrance. He uses about 1 1/2 cubes per week and is in his office about 50 hours per week. He says when he opens the door to his office on Friday mornings, he can still smell the scent he placed in the warmer on Monday morning. For me, when I melt about one cube every 20 to 30 hours. Some fragrances do last longer than others and you just have to experiment.

  6. Rosetta on August 28, 2016 at 6:29 am

    I purchased a wax warmer from my granddaughter’s school sale. The bulb blew out and I do not know what size bulb to replace it with. I purchased a 25 watt bulb but that is too big and round.

    • Mary Gregory on September 2, 2016 at 4:05 pm

      Hi Rosetta!

      I’m betting your bulb size you need is 20 watts. There are only three possible light bulb sizes used for most Scentsy warmers. The largest is a 25 watt bulb and that bulb is round. Then, there’s another round bulb but it is 20 watts. The last bulb is only for the night light type warmers and that’s a cone shaped, 15 watt bulb. Again, that’s only for the small warmers that plug directly into a wall outlet. If you haven’t seen it yet, try having a look at our Scentsy replacement light bulb page and you’ll see the photos showing you different options.

      Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, there is one more Scentsy light bulb but it’s a 40 Watt Edison bulb. At this time, that bulb only works in one or two old time themed warmers.

    Do I need to place a coaster under my warmer if it’s on a wooden surface?

    • Addyson on January 21, 2018 at 10:01 am

      I do not think so because I have had my full sized Scenty warmer on a wooden dresser for a couple a months and there have been no marks or burns.

  9. Maria on January 26, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    Do I have to put a wax candle on my Candle Wax Warmer or can I use it just as a night light. I know the dish will get hot but would it burn if there is no candle on it?

    Thank You

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:51 pm

      Hi Maria,

      We sometimes use our Scentsy warmers as a nightlight, without wax and have no problems. Yes, the dish will still get hot so always use caution, with or without wax. For safety purposes, always treat your warmers as you would an electric lamp or desk light. The light bulb or heating element can make the warmer quite hot, just like a lamp. I guess, the only exception would be if you are using one of our new Scentsy battery operated warmers. Those work a little differently and don’t heat up like a warmer that using a cord or plugs directly into an outlet.

  10. Cindy Rodman on March 18, 2018 at 8:55 am

    I have the gnome wax melt burner. Do I leave his hat (top) on while burning the wax melts. ??? Or take it off???? Thanks

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:45 pm

      Hi Cindy, yes, you can leave the hat on or off. Either way it will work just fine.

  11. Morgan on March 29, 2018 at 6:19 pm

    The hot plate on my scentsy warmer has started to peal for some unknown reason I’m not sure, I just want to know if I can still use it once it has started to peel or will it cause some problems it’s not even a year old yet

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:43 pm

      If you’re talking about the warmer dish peeling, we have not seen that specific problem so really cannot accurately comment. Typically, Scentsy warmer dishes are made of either ceramic or glass. If there’s a finish over the top that is wearing away I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to continue using the warmer.

  12. Nicole on May 4, 2018 at 10:20 am

    I have a Scentsy warmer is every main room in my home. (6 in total). And I’m finding that my home isn’t smelling as much as when I used bath and body works candles. I would burn 3 candles for three hours and my whole house Would smell for 6-7 hours. I put two cubes into my large warmers and one and a half into my smaller ones. I also have two plug-ins and I put one cube into each. I like to keep my house between 68 and 70°. Am I doing something wrong? I just invested $700 in warmers and wax and I’m not too happy with the results. ????

    • Amy on July 30, 2018 at 7:00 am

      I’ve spent a small fortune on warmers and waxes also. I have two in my kitchen and two in my family room. I put two waxes of the same scent in each warmer but only really smell it the first day. My warmers are on opposite ends of each room with ceiling fans on and that doesn’t even help.
      I also have a plug in my my entryway that seems to disperse the smell pretty good. There’s a full size in my bedroom, which is a smaller room in comparison, and the best wax in there is Shimmer as well as Shimmer in my bathroom. That one REALLY smells great and LASTS.
      Even Mystery Man and Solar Driftwood and Bergamot is a letdown

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:39 pm

      Sorry to hear you’re having problems with the strength of fragrances. Honestly, it sounds like you are making every effort so I imagine part of the problem is the AC. As you know, the air conditioning keeps circulating the air and filters the return air through a filter as it cycles. Some of these filters are quite restrictive so I’m thinking that’s contributing to the problem. Keep in mind though, our noses get used to smelling the same fragrances. Sometimes we think it’s time to change out the wax but later determine we were wrong. We have found, if we leave the house for a while, when we return we can still small the fragrances throughout the house. Also, often the best fragrances are quite subtle and our visitors always comment on how great the house always smells.

  13. Shar on June 24, 2018 at 12:13 pm

    I have a plug in scentsy warmer and wonder why the plug in part can be turned so the ground plug is at the top? I have outlets that are “upside” down and the ground is at the top but my warmer will not operate in that position.What am I doing wrong?

  14. Joni StAmand on October 7, 2018 at 3:29 pm

    I am looking for a heating element replacement for my pineapple wax burner, I am hoping you can help me .

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:27 pm

      Hi Joni,

      Heating elements cannot be replaced. If you have a warmer that uses a lightbulb, of course the bulbs can be replaced but if it’s an element warmer, you’re out of luck. Sorry:(

  15. Lori on January 8, 2019 at 8:39 pm

    Can you put essential oils directly on the warmer?

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:24 pm

      Sorry, I know these comment replies are late but we were having website issues and not receiving our notifications. You probably figured out by now, the warmers use the scented wax, not the oils. We just added a video created by Scentsy so you can check this out to find more information on using our Scentsy diffusers.

  16. Sandra on February 8, 2019 at 8:59 am

    Thanks so much for providing these tips. I purchased a warmer from you for a Christmas gift and my daughter loved it!

    • Mary Gregory on July 26, 2019 at 12:59 pm

      Thank you Sandra! I got involved selling Scentsy simply because I always loved scented candles. I used to have Salt City candles everywhere. I never really was a Yankee candle fan. Anyway, it has never been about money and I’ve been a consultant since 2008. Once I discovered this safer to enjoy scented wax, I feel it was worth sharing. I’ve always loved sharing my experiences with others.

  17. Josie haynes on August 31, 2019 at 5:12 pm

    I have a scentsy in every room in my house(6 in total). I buy my favorite ones when on sale and keep them to give as gifts. I absolutely love them. When the waxes lose most of the fragrance I take it out and put the waxes in my dresser drawers. Makes everything smell nice.

    • Pete Gregory on September 20, 2019 at 9:15 am

      Hi Josie,

      That’s a good idea about placing the leftover wax in dresser drawers. I often put the used wax in the bathroom garbage cans, which gives a little added fragrance where it’s needed most:)

  18. Christina on September 12, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    How much clearance do I need for the wax warmer? Can I put it on my kitchen counter w cabinets above?

    • Pete Gregory on September 20, 2019 at 9:13 am

      Hi Christina,

      Yep, I have two warmers in my kitchen that sit on top of the counter and below the upper cabinets. As far as clearance, so long as you have enough room to access the dish to remove and replace the scented wax, you should be good. If you’re concerned about the heat from the bulb or lightbulb, what I suggest to everyone is, treat your warmers as you would an electric lamp. If you are not comfortable with the little bit of heat, go with one of our cordless battery warmers.

  19. Brenda Moses on May 19, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    Should I leave the lid on when I’m using my Scentsy warmer?

    • Pete Gregory on May 28, 2020 at 10:13 am

      Although it might depend on the exact warmer, generally you can leave the lid on or off.

  20. Linds Standifer on June 25, 2020 at 12:23 pm

    I have a 25 watt bulb that came with my white ceramic kitchen pitcher electric Senstsy melter. Every time I plug it in it smells like something is overheating. Is that normal or should it have come with a different Bulb. ? Thanks

    • Pete Gregory on June 29, 2020 at 4:10 pm

      Hi Linds,

      If you purchased the Scentsy Lemonade Pitcher Warmer, the 25 watt bulb is the correct wattage for that warmer. However, there should not be an overheating smell. In our home we treat all our traditional tabletop type warmers just like we do any table lamp. The light bulbs generate heat and do get quite hot, just like a 25 watt bulb in a lamp. Make sure your warmer is not touching anything on the sides. Also, double check there is no left over plastic inside the warmer next to the bulb. Once upon a time, I forgot to remove the plastic from my light bulb and of course, we had a melted plastic small and had to replace the bulb.

  21. Juli on September 28, 2020 at 11:25 am

    I am new to Scentsy and have what may be a very dumb question. If you have multiple warmers throughout the house, do you use the same fragrance in all of them? Is it too much sensory overload to have different fragrances going?

      I also use multiple in my home and yes, I often use different fragrances however I usually try to keep the same fragrances downstairs and then perhaps something different upstairs. Also, if I have a closed room that can be different as well.

    How many square footage will one full size warmer cover?

      I’m not exactly sure how to answer this one. It really depends on conditions within the home. For instance, a 300 sq ft room could have very high vaulted ceilings and another may have low, 8t ceilings. It also depends on your ventilation. There are just too many factors and we really suggest testing. Yes, start with a full size traditional wax warmer. If it’s a large room your could test using 2 or 3 cubes of wax and see how it goes. We keep a warmer in our living room and one in our den. Then, one in each bathroom and bedroom.

    Is there a way to”dilute” the scent of the wax as it’s being heated? I’m brand new to Scentsy and just started using my new warmer – the scent is overpowering and gave me a migraine after having it on only a few minutes (only used one piece). In the future I’ll look for scents that are less strong (if they exist), but I bought a bunch of bars that I can’t use now because they are so strong.

      Hi Larissa,

      Sorry to hear about your sensitivity to the scented wax. There are some fragrances that are not as strong as others but since we are all different, there’s no way to be sure how one might affect you. Sorry we cannot offer more and I guess the way to be sure is to keep trying.

    I would like to buy a scentsy mini warmer (night light) type. But my plug is upside down.
