Scentsy began with a simple idea - a safe, wickless alternative to scented candles - and quickly grew into one of the most successful direct selling companies in the world. This wickless concept is simply decorative ceramic warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame.
Entrepreneurs Heidi and Orville Thompson encountered the product line at a home show in early 2004, purchased the tiny company, and moved Scentsy to Meridian, Idaho, where the company?s first home office was a 40-foot ocean shipping container on a small sheep farm. The Thompsons were inspired by how fragrance brings powerful emotions and memories to the surface ? without the safety risks of a burning candle ? and launched Scentsy as a party-plan company that same year.
In less than eight years, Scentsy has generated more than $1 billion in revenue. Today, the company?s family of passionate Independent Scentsy Consultants shares the Scentsy experience and the Scentsy difference throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, Canada, and Europe.
