“Sweaty” Wax (And Other Scentsy Bar Facts)

Have you ever opened up a Scentsy Bar to see that the wax is … um … sweating?

Do some of the Scentsy Bars in your stash not look as brightly colored as when you first got them?

Why does my wax look like it’s sweating?

Extreme variations in temperature can cause fragrance oils in your Bar to separate from the wax and begin beading up on its surface.


It looks a lot like sweat! Here are a couple of ways to help prevent “sweaty” wax:

Don’t store your Bars in the freezer.
Do store your Bars in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

Should I throw “sweaty” wax away?

Nope! When warmed, the oils should blend back in with the wax just fine, with no noticeable effect on your fragrance experience.

Why is my Scentsy Bar’s color fading?

Several factors can contribute to color variation in your Scentsy Bars. Some of it is complicated science stuff. But here are a few simple things to keep in mind:

Store your wax properly. Don’t remember how? Check out this post. Extreme heat or direct light can impact the look and shorten the shelf life of your Bars.
Just because it looks different, doesn’t mean it won’t still smell great! Color alone shouldn’t compel you to toss your wax in the trash. Try it first!

I have two Bars in the same fragrance — why do they look different?

Depending on the color(s) used to dye the wax, you might notice teensy variations in color. Any color variation is purely cosmetic and does not affect the fragrance, its intensity or the scent throw of your Bars.

nd a few other fun facts and helpful hints:

What kind of wax is used to make Scentsy Bars?

We use a custom, high-quality paraffin wax blend designed to give you long-lasting fragrance and selected for its scent loading ability, melting point and firmness. That means it warms beautifully and holds a lot of fragrance!

How do I clean the wax out of the Warmer?

While the wax is melted, pour it out and wipe the dish clean with a paper towel. (Don’t pour it down the sink!)

Are Scentsy Bars safe?

Scentsy Bars are safer than wicked candles because no flame is required. Since the wax is warmed and not burned like traditional candles, no harmful chemicals or pollutants are released into the air — just beautiful fragrance. That means no flame, smoke or soot!

Are Scentsy Bars edible?

No. Even if it smells good enough to eat, don’t.
