Read testimonials from distributors who attended our company convention in July and the wonderful things they have to say about the event, the training, the new products and of course all of the fun!

Check out our NEW Free Spirit Collection. It was created because we at Scent-Sations have always felt that it was braver to be the cutting edge than to be ON the cutting edge.

“I LOVE the Free Spirit Chai Tea candle. The aroma is so warm and mellow it just fills the house without being overpowering. I love that the hemp oil hasn't reduced the qualities of the palm wax that make our candles so awesome.”
~~ Audrey Jacob

“I LOVE Herbal Spa and the Yoga Nilla. They are absolutely BEAUTIFUL scents!" ~~ Alison Boers

Candle News - May 2015

Read some great stories of Scent-Sations distributors having fun and making money with candles!

"After a very successful day at the Taste of Home Cooking Show, Bringing in over $200.00 in sales. I have one vendor packet handed out, two show on the go's to get set up by summer, one interested in doing a fundraiser and another event lined up when a city near by does there fall feast event for their maple leaf parade." ~~ Keno

And another:
"I met with a new customer. She had been given one of our candles by an out of state friend & loved it but didn't know how to get any more. She called me yesterday after finding me on the internet & we met up today. She brought a friend with her & between the two of them they purchased 7 candles, Not bad for maybe 15 minutes of work." ~~ Christina

Got a call from my son who was EXCITED and asking for permission to "get into this box". He them sent me screen shots less than 10 minutes later of a conversation between him and a lady who is requesting certain scents as well as an information packet. I don't know who is more excited to be back with Mia Bella...my son or me!" ~~ Belinda Nadeau, MI

Residual Income Opportunities


My sponsor, Jimmy Schneider, at the Texas Dare to Dream Big conference, teaching about the residual income opportunities that comes with our candle business.


It has been said, "If you understood the power of residual income, you would walk through a brick wall to get it!"


Recently my family experienced some health issues that required me to spend less time with my business and more time making sure my husband got healthy. During the time I was attending to his needs, I STILL received a paycheck from Scent-Sations, regardless of how many or how few hours I worked. All because of the work I have done already. I continue to get paid off the work I have already invested in building my team.
