Learn more about our fabulous Scentsy oils; you might be surprised by information you may have heard about other company oils.
Essential oils are aromatic oils extracted physically (typically using steam distillation or expression) from naturally occurring plant substances such as citrus peel or pulp, leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots and other plant parts.
Natural oils are either created from a natural source or single molecules are extracted from an essential or naturally-occurring oil. To create natural oil from a natural source, two or more isolated molecules may be combined together or combined with naturally-occurring enzymes to create a new molecule. While this new molecule may not be found in nature, only natural ingredients are used to create it.
Scentsy Essential Oils consist of a single essential oil. Scentsy Essential Oil Blends are blends of two or more essential oils. Scentsy 100% Natural Oils are blends of two or more natural and essential oils. All Scentsy Oils are 100 percent natural and naturally-derived; no synthetic ingredients are used.
We currently work with seven fragrance companies worldwide to manufacture Scentsy Oils. We will continue to expand our network of distributers to continue delivering the best fragrance experience.
Yes. Natural and essential oils are subject to character (odor and color) variations caused by environmental factors such as flooding, drought and changing weather cycles. Though we profile our natural and essential oils and have established an acceptable range of variance, minor variances in the character of an essential oil or oil blend may be detectable from time to time.
Since natural and essential oils are derived from 100 percent natural materials, their potency may vary over time. For best results, we recommend storing your Scentsy Oils away from extreme fluctuations in heat or light. For best results, use Scentsy Oils within two years of purchase.
No. It’s not necessary to shake Scentsy Oils prior to use, but doing so will not affect your fragrance experience.
Because our natural and essential oils are derived from 100 percent natural ingredients, they are subject to pricing fluctuations due to weather, ease or difficulty of extraction, availability and plant yields. For example, lavender is easily renewable, produces high yields and can be sourced from different producers or locations. In contrast, sandalwood is substantially more expensive because it takes longer to produce, is only found in certain parts of southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, yields less oil and is more difficult to extract. Despite market fluctuations, we will not adjust prices to reflect market costs during a catalog cycle.
No. The FDA does not approve or recommend ingesting or topically applying any essential oil offered by any company. Though many essential oils are on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list and all Scentsy Oils are safe and meet all Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM) standards as diffuser oils, Scentsy Oils are not intended for ingestion or direct skin applications.
Our intent is to provide an exceptional, natural fragrance experience rather than create oils for therapeutic or medicinal purposes. This decision was based on the fact that claims about an any company’s oil’s therapeutic or medicinal benefits cannot be verified by an impartial third party or government entity, and in the spirit of Authenticity, we will not make claims that can’t be independently verified. That being said, you may find the ingredients in Scentsy Oils are identical to the ingredients in oils marketed for therapeutic or medicinal use. While we will never recommend or endorse using Scentsy Oils for this purpose, using Scentsy Oils internally or topically should only be done at your own risk.
Aromatherapy is a broad term for a range of therapies involving essential oils, including baths, massage and other treatments whereby the oils are absorbed through the skin or inhaled. Aromatherapy is loosely defined, and there is no consistent or standard definition.
Aromatherapy generally refers to the use of aromas for therapeutic (pharmacological) purposes. Scentsy Oils are not designed to be ingested or applied topically, so they are not intended for this purpose. However, there is scientific evidence that specific scents stimulate the olfactory system – the parts of the brain connected to smell – and can induce a chemical reaction in the brain which make a person feel relaxed, calm or even stimulated. This is known as aromachology, which is the psychological or mental effect of smelling essential oils. Scentsy Oils can absolutely be used for aromachology.
“Therapy-grade” is a misleading term; there is no official entity, governmental or otherwise, that screens, evaluates or grades essential oils. In the spirit of Authenticity, we do not make any claims about our products that cannot be substantiated or verified.
If you are sensitive to specific plants, diffusing oils that contain them may irritate your allergies. Fortunately, Scentsy Oils disclose all ingredients so you can evaluate their appropriateness for the health and comfort of you and your family.
When undiluted, Scentsy Oils have the potential to stain clothes or damage fabrics or surfaces. To avoid staining or damage, we recommend immediately cleaning up spills and thoroughly cleaning surfaces oils come into contact with.
Adding Scentsy Oils to a Scentsy Warmer does not create a pleasant fragrance experience and may severely discolor the warming dish. Our systems are designed for an optimal fragrance experience. Scentsy Oils are best experienced via cold-mist diffusion, and Scentsy Bars are best experienced via our warmers. Though we recommend using Scentsy Oils and Scentsy Bars with their intended systems only, warming Scentsy Oils in your warmer will not void the warranty.
The natural character of individual oils means some oils will be thicker and flow more slowly than others.
We do not recommend mixing diffuser oils with wax. Scentsy Oils have not been formulated or tested for use in our warmers. Our diffuser oils are highly concentrated and intended to be used with water only.
Using Scentsy Oils or any natural or essential oils in vaporizers or humidifiers could damage or destroy the unit. The Scentsy Diffuser features a proprietary plastic designed to resist corrosion, even with the most acidic oils.
As with any fragrance oils, Scentsy Oils may damage surfaces when improperly used. Avoid prolonged contact between Scentsy Oils and surfaces. When used as directed, Scentsy fragrance oils will not damage surfaces.
No. Scentsy Oils do not contain adulterants or diluents to “stretch” the oils or reduce costs.
Scentsy Oils are not certified organic.
Conventional materials are not tested for pesticides. However, our essential oils are tested on a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS) to ensure there are no impurities which will affect the fragrance quality.
We haven’t made any recommendations for mixing oils, but you’re welcome to experiment to create new fragrance combinations.

In addition to using the herb sage in cooking, it’s also been used for thousands of years for a variety of ailments. Human studies and laboratory research have revealed that sage exhibits several important brain benefits.
“Traditional uses for sage have also uncovered another benefit:The ability to boost moods and increase memory and cognitive skills. This benefit isn’t just after weeks or months of dosing: It also occurs within hours of consuming the sage. This last benefit of sage has been the subject of intense research over the past decade. With proven results.”
It’s important to note that as a Scentsy Independent Superstar Director I am prohibited from making any medicinal claims. Scentsy is a fabulous fragrance company and we market our products for the purpose of scent. There, I think that should cover my “I am not a doctor legal spiel.”
However, if you are interested or curious about how you feel with adding sage to your environment, Scentsy carries a few products containing sage:
“If someone asks for help in the herb garden, you can certainly give Sage advice if you have Thyme.”

I have a phobia of mice. I don’t mean I don’t like them; or that they scare me. I mean on a scale of 1 – 10, ten being the worst, I have a mice phobia of about a 50.
I know cognitively that it is ridiculous. Yet, it is what it is and I sold a house because of a mouse. True story. I found out there was one in the house. I called my realtor friend to tell him I wanted to sell the house and I was dead serious. Eighteen hours later he brought a perspective buyer through and less than 24 hours after the sighting I agreed to the offer. THAT’S how much I am unable to cope with mice.
I also cannot share with you the research for and against whether or not peppermint oil or peppermint teabags re [Read more…] about Does Peppermint Oil Repel Mice?
