In October of 2012 Walmart Canada recalled over 1,000 of their electronic fragrance warmers. These warmers are similar to Scentsy's wickless warmers except for the fact these warmers were catching on fire.
Scentsy does extensive testing on all their warmers to ensure they are safe for long term use.
Customers that have used the Walmart brand warmers have told us that the wax and warmer get extremely hot and they are afraid that it will burn their little ones or animals. The great thing about Scentsy warmers is they never get warmer than body temperature, this ensures the wax will never be hot enough to burn an individual or pet.
We encourage you to test out both Walmart's brand as well as Scentsy. Even though Walmart's brand may be cheaper up front, you will end up paying more in the long run due to the lack of quality they put into their warmers and wax.
One thing that we offer that Walmart doesn't, besides a better product, is customer service. We will take the time to find which warmers work for you and your decor, help you find the perfect scents for your home and taste, and ensure that you are happy with your purchase of Scentsy! We want you to love Scentsy as much as we do!
Do you have questions about which brand is right for you? Contact us today! We will do our best to help figure out whats best for you!
