As you probably already know, Scentsy candles are completely flameless. Scentsy electric candle warmers use light bulbs to melt the wax, and because the wax melts at such a low temperature, it never gets hot enough to harm your children or pets, let alone start a fire. Scentsy warmers are safe enough to leave on 24/7.

If you’re going to use traditional candles, please be EXTRA careful around the holidays and please visit the National Candle Assoc. for candle safety tips.
