Can you Make Money Selling Scentsy?
Is Scentsy a Legitimate Business Opportunity?
People ask this question all the time! There are generally 3 types of people writing about this topic
Scentsy Consultants who are trying to get you to join their Scentsy Team
People who are marketing some other sort of product that generates online leads, calls, other opportunities, etc. They are just using the name ‘Scentsy‘ to lure you into reading their posts.
The occasional article from a blogger or journalist, not associated with Scentsy, who have nothing to gain from writing a positive or negative article.( apart from maybe a free warmer as recompense for their time!)
I am an Independent Scentsy Consultant and I write posts like this so YOU can find us online, read it and decide for yourself if you want to do business with us. There is no reason for any consultant to write blog posts other than this.
Of course I’m going to tell you that Scentsy is an amazing work at home business opportunity – it really is. I will also add that I Make Money with Scentsy. I also Recruit others into the Scentsy Family which is where you really grow your business and make money.
I have never come across a consultant, who is no longer works with Scentsy, who thinks it’s a scam, pyramid scheme, a waste of money, etc. They are usually no longer consultants just because they never did anything with their business. Things like – not telling anyone they had a business, give out samples or catalogues, have a single party, etc. Sometimes they just didn’t realize that they had to work their business like a business. They are still customers and love their Scentsy Candle Warmers and Scentsy Wax Melts
What makes a “Legitimate” business opportunity?
Every opportunity has successful people in it as well as those who are unsuccessful. I mean, if you’ve paid £94 to join a Direct Sales business opportunity with another company and didn’t get training from your Sponsor, had to pay out of your own pocket to place product orders in order to keep your contract, had steep sales and/or recruiting requirements, had to go to meetings all the time, dealt with saturation and dislike for the product, etc. would you feel good about representing it? If you had this kind of experience then you probably felt like you were ‘scammed’. When someone has a good experience with a Direct Sales Opportunity then they defend it right?
Scentsy doesn’t have a bad reputation because:
The price to Join is £94 (€99 in Europe). It’s not a lot and, while you do get a lot of business supplies in your kit, the cost of the Products you get in your kit are valued at more than £200! So, even if you don’t ‘work’ your business, you already received a huge value! And it's yours to keep, no matter what happens with your business
No auto-ship requirements or personal monthly purchase quotas to stay active. Basically, you don’t need to buy a stock of products to be successful. In fact, keeping it simple and just bringing what comes in your Start-up Kit to your Parties can be even better! While you do need to sell 150 PRV (@£166 ) in a single month during any 3 month period…anyone working their business very part-time can meet this goal.
Monthly website fee of £10 a month – only if you want a site! There are many consultants who choose to not have a Scentsy website. You don’t need one to have parties however, no one can buy from you online when you do have parties and you cannot Recruit or build a team without a website as this is the only way anyone can Join! You can enter in all of your party orders via your back office workstation which is free. I personally feel that £10 a month is a very worthwhile fee to pay.
It’s just candles! I mean, who doesn’t know what candles are? Who wants to take a vitamin supplement from someone they just met? How about adult toys…how do you approach someone about that? Special drinks, jewellery, kitchenware, etc. Everyone has a candle! Everyone knows what a candle is! No one will turn down taking a free sample of our Scented Candles! You can show everyone in the entire family Scentsy – Men, Women and Children. Granted, we have many products that are ‘Scent’ or ‘Fragrance’ related but the core of our company is Wax and Warmers.
It’s Safe. No flames! Also, have you ever wondered – where does the wax go? With traditional candles the wax evaporates – as does the scent. Where does it all go? Into the air we breathe! With Scentsy, only the scent evaporates…not the wax, so we aren’t breathing in toxic chemicals or soot.
How do you Make Money with Scentsy?
Lots of ways! You can pick what parts of the business you like, are good at, how much time you want to spend on your business, etc. I make money from marketing online which drives customers to my website to Buy Scentsy or to Join. I send out Basket Parties to customers and others wanting to get some free and discounted products. I also love doing Home Parties! We build and train a team of consultants! Truly, this is where most money is made.
Some Consultants like doing Fairs and Shows (4% of all Scentsy business). We’ve done Christmas Fairs, Open days, Coffee Mornings, Summer and Shopping Fairs...the list is endless Doing Fairs and Shows can cost more initially because you usually need to ‘show or sell’ a lot more product on hand, but you are able to spread knowledge and information about your product to a bigger audience
Of course, you can party until the cows come home but if you recruit, you are going to make small commissions off of what each of your down line sells. Growing a team under you is how to build Wealth!
*Remember, any business has general business expenses so please make sure to set aside a small % of your Commissions each month to put back into your business for supplies, marketing, etc.
Return on Investment
Just having one average party of £400-600 will pay you back the cost of joining Scentsy in commissions – Really! Most people make money hosting Scentsy Parties. This is where 90% of all Scentsy business comes from. Party, Party, Party! If you are going to bother joining Scentsy then you need to have at least one party – your Grand Launch party that is! My goal is to always have consultants make their initial investment back right away.
Also, take into consideration how much money you and your friends spend on Candles each year. You can save a ton just by Joining Scentsy and using the Starter Kit! You can use a single warmer for the entire year (and much longer all warmers carry a 3 year Warranty) and just scrape out wax from each of your 80+ Party Tester jars.

Scentsy are a brilliant family to work with! The onus is on selling, not recruiting and Consultants are constantly recognised for the efforts that they put into building their business. Achievement milestones are rewarded as are sales ( and recruitment .) Family reunions, holidays and special incentive prizes as well as free product rewards are just some of the many rewards Consultants can "earn" By selling a product they love
