I hope you are all having a lovely Easter!
Stuffed full of Easter chocolate, I’m settling down for an afternoon in front of 102 Dalmatians on BBC1, with a massive mug of tea, and I’m planning a session of Scentsy sample making.
Ask a hundred different Scentsy consultants how they make their scent samples and you are likely to get a hundred different methods. So here is how I make mine:
Having decided which fragrances I want to make today’s samples from, I set my own Scentsy warmers to work earlier. After gently warming the wax (whilst also making my home smell fantastic!) I filled these lovely little lozenge-shaped moulds with my chosen Scentsy waxes. Some might use different methods to warm their waxes, with varying success, but in my mind the whole idea of enjoying Scentsy, even when sample-making, is enjoying the fragrances as they warm in the warmer, so my method of melting my ‘sample’ wax may well take longer, but I think it is much more enjoyable!
I popped the filled moulds into the freezer, to firm up a little, and so I could just take them out when I was ready to use them. To protect from freezer-burn I slide the moulds into a Ziploc freezer bag. Chilling the samples in the freezer will also make them pop out of the moulds much more easily.
My moulds actually came from a friend who was clearing out some sweet-making supplies. I have no idea where she got them from originally, but any small moulds will work just as well.
Next up is assembling all the stuff I need to put my samples together:
Small Ziploc baggies, to put each sample in
Stickers to go on each baggie. I also write on each sticker the name of the wax sample.
I like enclosing Product Sheets with the samples, so I need my pad of Product Sheets, and also stickers with my contact details, to put on each sheet.
Cover sheets, to finish off the ‘Sample Pack’.
And finally A5 cellophane bags, to put it all in to.
And Voila !
A pile of sample packs – ready to put in my handbag, to go everywhere that I go :-)
I carry my business cards too, but I’ve found most people much prefer to receive a free scent sample. I think we all prefer to smell, touch, taste, or hear something before we’re truly sold on it. Scentsy is no different, and a business card simply cannot convey just how good this stuff smells!
Any questions, just ask away in the comments section ;-)

Now, I’m popping the kettle on, and getting back to my sample-making and those adorable Dalmatians…
