The warm glow of candles is part of the holiday tradition, and it's a wonderful way to create a festive ambiance in the home. Thanks to Scentsy, Canadians can now enjoy all the benefits of candles without the risks. Scentsy's decorative warmers use a 25-watt bulb to melt scented wax, without the risk of an open flame, smoke or soot. With more than 60 festive warmers and 80 engaging scents showcased at, Scentsy is a smart and safe holiday gift for under $40. For the 2010 holiday season these scents, Poinsettia Pine, Christmas Tree, Cranberry Spice, Cinnamon Bear and Pumpkin Roll, make your home smell festive and inviting.

"Candles are a big part of the holiday tradition but the downside is the danger of an open flame in the home," says John Curtis, Vice President of Communication for Scentsy. "Statistics show that candles are to blame for an overwhelming percentage of residential fires. Safety was the initial motivation to create Scentsy's original wickless candle. Scentsy's décor, ambiance and long-lasting fragrances have propelled Scentsy into an international phenomenon."

New for the Holidays from Scentsy

This holiday season Scentsy will introduce Gingerbread, Silent Night, Menorah and Tannenbaum. These warmers will bring delightful new holiday scents into the home including Berry Tart, Christmas Cottage, Gingersnap, Hazelnut Latte and Sentimental Cider! Other holiday favourites include Cranberry Spice, Cinnamon Bear and Pumpkin Roll and classics such as Poinsettia Pine, and Christmas Tree – perfect for homes decorated with artificial trees.

Also new to Scentsy for the holidays is the Scentsy Buddy, a great gift for kids. Choose from six cute plush toys featuring a Scent Pak in one of 15 delightful scents. Whether it's Ollie the Elephant, Lenny the Lamb, Penny the Pig, Mollie the Monkey, Ribbert the Frog or Roarbert the Lion, there's a cuddly companion for the child in your life.

"Studies have shown that there is a strong association between scent and memories," says Curtis. "Scentsy wickless candles help create a perfectly scented backdrop for the holidays. Scentsy fragrances fill a room better than any candle or air freshener, and we only use the finest materials in our Scentsy Bars to create an array of colours and aromas." 

Scents that Warm the Soul!

Simply plug in the Scentsy warmer, turn it on, and place one or more sections of the Scentsy wax bar into the dish. The wax melts, and when you are finished enjoying the fragrance, simply pour the melted wax back into its original packaging. Clean the warmer dish with a paper towel and you are ready for your next Scentsy experience.
