Mother's Day and Easter are just around the corner.  If you are looking for that special gift for that special Scentsy Dotperson in your life, remember Scentsy Warmers come in over 100 designs and 3 sizes.

There are over 80 fragrances that you can purchase for the Warmers, Room Sprays, Travel Tins and Scent Circles. The Scent Packs are available in 30 fragrances and the Fragrance Foams are available in 10 fragrances.


Don't forget a Scentsy Buddy for that Easter basket!  There are six Scentsy Buddy's: Ribbert, Roarbert, Mollie, Ollie, Penny and Lenny, who would love to buddiesfind a home with someone to cuddle with on Easter.
