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.
HELPFUL TIPS POST UPDATED 8/5/19
Customers Love the Cordless, Battery Operated Warmers!
We are pleased to announce how much our customers enjoy the authentic Scentsy battery powered warmers with no cord! Released in September of 2017, the warmers are small, light weight and you can place it anywhere in your home or office, no electrical outlet needed! We even take it with us in the car when going on the road. Also, the battery is rechargeable, just like your phone!
See our recent battery powered warmer post to learn more.
Where can I Purchase Authentic Scentsy Products?
Scentsy is not available in stores, and can only be purchased through or from a Scentsy Independent Consultant. You might see a similar product in a store, but it's not Scentsy! Almost any experienced Scentsy customer will tell you, there's absolutely nothing on the market that can compare to Scentsy.
The Scentsy warmers are wickless, flameless, safe, unique, well made, popular, and reasonably priced. They're available in multiple sizes and many different colors and designs. Also, there are over eighty different amazing fragrances.
There's so much more, but the best way to find out more is to browse online.
If you'd like, contact me directly. I'll help you purchase your Scentsy product and I'll make sure you get the very best value for your money. BE SURE TO ASK ME ABOUT MY PERSONAL SPECIALS! Call or text Mary Gregory at 661-210-7617.
How Much Wax Should Be Used in Scentsy Warmers?
The amounts of wax 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, 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 people cut the cube and use half a cube at a time. For your mid size and full size warmers, 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.
How long will my scented wax last?
Scentsy now offers this handy new product to clean the wax from any Scentsy wax warmer. It comes in a pack of 25 for just $5 and they say each one will clean out up to 4 cubes of wax. That's pretty good!
Just dit the cotton in the melted wax and the cotton will absorb the wax and you are all set. Of course, you could just use your own cotton balls too, but it looks like the higher density cotton Scentsy provides is the way to go.
Sometimes our newer customers don't really understand how the scented wax works.
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. That's a heck of a deal, and much better than a candle!

Cotton Clean Up for Wax Warmers
Here's an easy new way to clean wax from your warmer! When it's time to swap out your melted wax, place one Cotton Cleanup pad in the melted wax. Wait a few seconds seconds while the cotton soaks the wax and you're all set. Each pad is intended to be used once but can absorb up to four melted Scentsy Bar cubes. $5 for 25 pads!
How to change the wax without spilling, and how do I clean the dish?
If you don't want to spend the money on the cotton pads, follow the suggestions below and it will work fine as well. The cotton pads are more convenient, but for years, this is the way I've cleaned my warmers.
First, the answer depends on the warmer type. 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.
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.
Removing Wax from the Small Night Light Warmers
Also, we used to sell special "Grab Tabs" for the small night light warmers but those were not the best solution and are no longer available. Honestly, save your money, because the best way is to simply soak up the wax with a cotton ball or two. Then, use a paper towel or whatever you have to lift the cotton out of the small dish and place it in the garbage. Once you've removed enough wax from the dish by using the cotton, unplug the warmer and wipe the dish clean with a paper towel. You're all set to place your new scented wax melts into the clean dish.
Light Bulb Tips
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.
NEW BULBS - FYI, now we have bulbs in various colors. There's also a larger wattage bulb for certain warmers.
These 15 watt bulbs in the size needed are tough to find. We suggest buying a couple of replacement bulbs the next time you buy more wax. Our Scentsy replacement light bulbs for the warmers in our home tend to last six months to a year. Just like any other light bulb in our home, we keep spares on hand so we always have one when we need it.
Scentsy Replacements & Accessories Available
We carry many Scentsy replacement parts and accessories at our online store. We have many replacement dishes for your mid size or full size warmers, Scentsy replacement light bulbs in three sizes, warmer stands, and more. It rarely occurs, but if you break a dish for your mid or full size warmer, we most likely have a replacement. The warmer stands will enhance the look of any mid or full size warmer and are available in square and circle design.

Instructions for Setting Up your Traditional Large Size Warmer
The instructions below apply to our traditional larger tabletop warmers, NOT the small nightlights that plug in to a wall. Nowadays, some of our newer warmers have multiple parts and pieces which we'll cover later on in separate posts. Regardless, for the most part setting up a warmer is simple and self explanatory.
- Open the box, read the instructions and safety information that came with your new warmer
- Remove all the plastic and remove the light bulb from inside the warmer. Don't forget to remove the plastic from the bulb.
- Place the Scentsy warmer on a table or flat surface
- Screw in the light bulb
- Place the separate dish on top of the warmer
- Plug in the warmer to any safe electrical outlet
- Place one small scented wax cube in the warmer dish
- Turn on the switch. (The switch in located on the electrical cord)
- In a few minutes the wax will melt and your home of office will smell wonderful
Turning Off Your Warmer at the End of the Day
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.
