Consultant Spotlight: Lacey’s Story

By Mary Thompson Lacey Perkins is a firm believer that everything happens at just the right time for a reason. Her introduction to Scentsy, of course, was no exception! After graduating college with a degree in Sign Language Interpretation in April 2013, she was blessed to be hired right off the bat. Little did she know, there were more blessings coming her way. “Three months after my mom had introduced me to Scentsy at a work event, I attended another function that was putting on a silent auction — one of the products being the famous wickless warmers my mom had raved about. I ended up making a bid on the warmer for my mom as a Christmas present, and I won!” Lacey said. But once she opened up the prized product, she knew her mom wasn’t receiving it as a Christmas present that year! Curious about the company, Lacey later approached a lady with some Scentsy brochures in her purse — Danielle Reynolds, a full-time teacher. “I probably asked her 1,000 questions about Sc ...

Chasing Fireflies: 10 More Years of Scentsy Spirit

By Tamara Turner If you could describe Scentsy Spirit in one word, what would it be? I simply can’t do it. But, I do know Scentsy Spirit seems to be part of the genetic makeup of everyone who loves Scentsy. Scentsy Spirit is made up of simplicity, authenticity, and generosity, and expressed by our motto to “contribute more than you take.”  Scentsy Spirit is also about fun, friendship, fragrance, and food! At the recent Scentsy Family Reunion, President Heidi Thompson said, “…as long as we have Scentsy Spirit, our best days are ahead of us.” She inspired us to approach the next decade with wonder, love, kindness, hope, and the light of a thousand fireflies. Chasing fireflies takes us back to the childlike wonder of tiny lights appearing magically in the night sky.

It's National Lighthouse Day!

By Franziska Ziegler Today is National Lighthouse Day and I have always been fascinated by these towers seemingly sitting in the middle of the ocean and casting their promising light. In fact, when I was a kid (and to this day, really!) one of my favorite movies was Pete’s Dragon and I just loved the cleaning the lighthouse scene! In ancient times, a fire was lit on top of a hill to help ships navigate, however, back then the lighthouses marked the entrance of ports rather than being used as warning signals. With the growth of transatlantic commerce at the beginning of the 18th century, the construction of modern lighthouses that were more similar to the ones we know today flourished. Through technological and architectural progress it was now possible to build lighthouses that were more powerful, larger, and exposed to the sea. Because of that, lighthouses were then used as warning signals against hazards such as reefs, or rocks. Nowadays, lighthouses are widely spread in pop culture ...

Consultant Spotlight: Christy's Story

By Mary Thompson Every Scentsy journey begins with a story, and Christy Grant’s quite literally does as well! “My cousin-in-law, Lisa Kamp, had been selling Scentsy for over 4 years. One Christmas, she sat down with us and began sharing how her sponsor’s husband quit his job and was selling Scentsy with his wife fulltime,” Christy said. While looking for business opportunities, hearing the success story of another couple was enough to capture her interest. After further researching Scentsy, she and her husband decided this was something they couldn’t pass up. The thing Christy loves most about Scentsy is the ability it gives her to connect with people and grow herself. “I really love meeting people and the relationships that have formed because of my Scentsy business. After a party, I come home and tell my husband about my latest hostess and customers. My team enriches my life and I can learn just as much from them as they learn from me!” As she has worked w ...

Let’s Cuddle!

By Stephanie Casabonne Say hello to our floppy-eared buddy, Roosevelt the Rabbit. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Roosevelt, let us introduce you. Benefiting The March of Dimes in the U.S. and the Starlight Children’s Foundation in Canada, Roosevelt the Rabbit helps Moms have full-term, healthy pregnancies in the U.S. and brings relief, joyful distraction, strength, and hope to children in Canada. And, no, he isn’t too good to be true … he really is that amazing. From March through the end of June, Scentsy Consultants sold 82,800 Roosevelts, which translates to more than $466,000 for March of Dimes and more than $81,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation in Canada. We told you this little guy is amazing! And the generosity of Scentsy Consultants and fans can’t be beat.  Don’t you just want to cuddle him? We don’t blame you if you do; he is pretty loveable, especially when you pair him with August’s snuggle-worthy Scent of the M ...

Come Sail Away! Scentsy and Velata Incentive Trip 2015

There are many reasons to love being a Scentsy or Velata Consultant — and lots of them have nothing to do with the amazing products. (But I can’t say Consultants MIND the smell of delicious Scentsy fragrance when they get home or the taste of scrumptious food prepped with a snazzy Velata kitchen system. Call it a major perk of the job.) When you join Scentsy*, you join a family of inspiring, likeminded folks who are running successful home businesses just like you. These are the people you get to hang out with, share good times with, throw parties with, celebrate with, laugh and cry and dance with, eat long lunches with, and TRAVEL WITH! Each year, Scentsy gives Consultants an opportunity to earn a fabulous trip when they do what they do best: share fun products that inspire the senses and introduce others to the Scentsy or Velata opportunity. And why shouldn’t they be rewarded for their hard work? Everyone deserves a chance to celebrate their big achievements with an awesome getaway ...

Consultant Spotlight: Kristen's Story

By Mary Thompson  On December 3, 2011, Kristen Anderson began her wellness journey. After reaching 488 pounds, health problems began invading her personal life and doctors told her there was no way she could lose weight on her own.   “Everything hurt, and all I wanted to do when I left the doctor’s office that day was cry,” Kristen said. “I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes and had nothing nice to wear to events. I couldn’t sit in a single airplane seat, go to baseball games, or go out with friends and have fun. I have seen how it took the lives of so many people in my family and I didn’t want to be another statistic.” In the beginning, Kristen’s weight loss goals were motivated by her desire to prove her doctors wrong, that she could do it on her own! Her direction shifted when she talked to Coach Lee and Marlo in 2012 at the Las Vegas Reunion. “I made it my goal at that point to join the committed program and try to help others ...

Goodbye, Grace Adele — Hello, BLOWOUT SALE!

It’s hard to say goodbye. A thousand tear-jerking country songs can’t be wrong. That one little word comes with a closetful of questions and baggage and emotions and memories to cherish. But it can also lead to exciting new beginnings! On July 31, Grace Adele — the big sister who has been giving us amazing style advice season after season — is saying goodbye. You might have known this for a while now, but thought you’d have plenty of time. One final summer together, right? But we all know how those summer romances go — they’re fleeting. And eventually have to come to an end. So as we get dangerously close to July 31 and share in Grace Adele’s final days, we’d like to make sure everyone has a fair shot at closure before she goes — and one more chance to stock your closets! There are still a few reasons to celebrate this week, even in the midst of our style grief. Their names are Allie. And Dylan. And Morgan and Joss and Skye! The new product ...

Consultant Spotlight: Lacey’s Story

By Mary Thompson

Lacey Perkins is a firm believer that everything happens at just the right time for a reason. Her introduction to Scentsy, of course, was no exception! After graduating college with a degree in Sign Language Interpretation in April 2013, she was blessed to be hired right off the bat. Little did she know, there were more blessings coming her way.


“Three months after my mom had introduced me to Scentsy at a work event, I attended another function that was putting on a silent auction — one of the products being the famous wickless warmers my mom had raved about. I ended up making a bid on the warmer for my mom as a Christmas present, and I won!” Lacey said. But once she opened up the prized product, she knew her mom wasn’t receiving it as a Christmas present that year!

Curious about the company, Lacey later approached a lady with some Scentsy brochures in her purse — Danielle Reynolds, a full-time teacher.

“I probably asked her 1,000 questions about Scentsy. I was on the fence about hosting a party and joining, when I finally decided to host a basket party just to see how it would go. Within two days, I had sold over $800 in products! I was sold and decided to join her team.”

Since joining, Lacey has worked hard toward achieving her goals, and her immediate success shows that she doesn’t mess around!

“My goal was to save money so I could move out of my current college town living conditions. Only two weeks after joining, I had earned enough money to sign a lease for my new apartment in a new part of town!”

As Lacey has worked on her business, she is surprised about her personal success and the daily growth she has seen in her life.

“My motivation and determination just keep growing. I really love setting daily, weekly, and monthly goals and accomplishing them. I have also become more outgoing. I’ve really grown out of my comfort zone and I LIKE it! As a new graduate fresh out of college, Scentsy has helped me move up in the world.”

Because of her success, Lacey now tries to bring people together to share her love, passion, and motivation for this company, just as her sponsor inspired her.

“Scentsy is not just about selling the amazing products, it is about finding yourself and proving to yourself that you can achieve your dreams and goals. I have more motivation to go forward with my life than I ever have before. The business opportunities and the doors that have been opened to me, I am forever grateful for because they helped me stop making excuses for myself and forced me to take that leap of faith in joining … and since then, I have never looked back. Things happen for a reason, so it was meant to be that I ended up with the team I have and my amazing sponsor, Danielle Reynolds.”

Chasing Fireflies: 10 More Years of Scentsy Spirit

By Tamara Turner

If you could describe Scentsy Spirit in one word, what would it be? I simply can’t do it. But, I do know Scentsy Spirit seems to be part of the genetic makeup of everyone who loves Scentsy. Scentsy Spirit is made up of simplicity, authenticity, and generosity, and expressed by our motto to “contribute more than you take.”  Scentsy Spirit is also about fun, friendship, fragrance, and food!

At the recent Scentsy Family Reunion, President Heidi Thompson said, “…as long as we have Scentsy Spirit, our best days are ahead of us.” She inspired us to approach the next decade with wonder, love, kindness, hope, and the light of a thousand fireflies.

Chasing fireflies takes us back to the childlike wonder of tiny lights appearing magically in the night sky. Even in the midst of a dark storm, fireflies continue to shine, always spreading hope as they navigate through the darkness. It’s a wonderful picture of the strength of Scentsy Spirit, and it’s also the inspiration for the September Warmer of the Month, Chasing Fireflies.

For the next 10 days, Barman is going to help us spread a little Scentsy Spirit. He’s going to sneak into the Scentsy Distribution Center every day to randomly plant a Chasing Fireflies Warmer into one outgoing package. Imagine the wonder and excitement created when a customer or Consultant receives this little gift unexpectedly. Scentsy Spirit? I’d say yes!

The Chasing Fireflies Warmer will be available for purchase — and 10 percent off for the month of September! — beginning Sept. 1. Call your Scentsy Consultant to place an order, or find a Consultant at www.scentsy.com.

After the reunion, we started a site where Consultants, or anyone, can receive a daily dose of Scentsy Spirit: http://scentsyspirit.com/. These inspirational messages remind us how we want to approach the decade ahead, and help us become the people and company we want to be in 2024. Be sure to visit the site and follow these daily affirmations — you can even share them with others.  

Let’s see if you can do it in the comments below: If you could describe Scentsy Spirit in one word, what would it be?
