Scentsy has changed quite a bit since it was founded in 2004.
It started with wickless candles – a safer alternative to candles for those with pets or little ones – but in a decorative warmer to enhance your home’s décor. Now Scentsy’s product line includes many different products; oil diffusers, bath bombs, kitchen and bathroom cleaners, even laundry products! Many of their products have cute names like Washer Whiffs, Counter Clean, Travel Tins, and Scentsy Soaks.
Catherine’s journey with Scentsy began in 2009 when she smelled something amazing while popping in to meet a new neighbor, where she managed to snag a catalog. After collecting dust on her nightstand for some time, Catherine picked up the catalog and quickly found that she had an extensive wish list. She knew the best way to take care of her list was to host a party. As her party wrapped up, Catherine saw the incredible earning potential of becoming a consultant. She knew she’d be needing more wax for her warmers. Knowing that, at the very least, she could meet her minimum volume from replenishing her own supply, she signed up on the spot. After that, she couldn’t stop sharing about her new favorite products. Without even delving into the company’s training or compensation plan, she launched herself into the business – not realizing how well she was doing. Once she checked things out more closely and saw the rewards available to her, her business flourished, and she currently has a team of 150 consultants.
Her new business happened to come at the right time. After a stressful job as a pharmacist for twenty years, Catherine decided it was time to take a break, time for a change. Her Scentsy business is now her full-time gig. It gives her the opportunity to be present and work her schedule around the needs and activities of her busy teen boys. In addition, she can meet and serve new people, travel, and earn an income at the same time.
Some of Catherine’s favorite Scentsy products include the full range of Scentsy Bar fragrances, Bath Bombs, Washer Whiffs, Room Sprays, Body Soufflé, and the new licensed Disney product line.
But notably, she has a new offering by Scentsy: the Whiff Box. Similar to Bark Box craze, the Whiff Box is a box of mystery products for humans that encompasses several of their categories, including a “sniff preview” of the next Scent of the Month!
