Hooray! It’s our 1st official Review and Giveaway! Woo-hoo!
Guess who are guest of honor is? A dear friend of mine that I grew up with in highschool and youth group in church. Her name is Rachel Mitchell. She is a smart, classy lady with a special product line to share with us through her own business as a Scentsy Consultant.
Scentsy has created an amazing product to help consumers like me (a mom with 2 energetic kids and a baby) who wish to have a delightful scent of sweetness in the air when someone enters my home (instead of smelly diapers or last night’s fish dinner). I certainly can’t risk having an open flame in my house with the little ones around, but then I heard about Scentsy products and realized life CAN actual smell fresh, clean, spicy, fruity, flowery, or any other delicious aroma I want it to – thanks to Scentsy flameless products! With that said, let me introduce to you: Rachel Mitchel.
Scentsy Review: An Interview with Rachel Mitchell -Scentsy Consultant
Rebecca: Hi Rachel. Thanks so much for letting me interview you today. Do you mind sharing with our readers how you came to know about Scentsy?
Rachel: Sure, Rebecca. I’d be happy to. I was introduced to Scentsy via a catalog in October of 2010. I have ALWAYS loved to have my house smell warm and inviting, but the only ones who normally get to the reap the rewards of all of my fragrant candle-burning were my guests, since I had to be home to light them!
When I learned that not only was Scentsy flameless, but that I wouldn’t have the awful soot marks on my walls and the worries about forgetting to blow one out, I was ecstatic!!! I LOVE the idea that I can turn my warmers on before I leave for work and come home to an inviting fragrance!
Rebecca: That is wonderful! I would certainly enjoy that feature on a regular basis. Living in Florida can make the house smell funny with all the humidity. Enjoying a fresh citrus scent or some other fun choice would be great to come home to after church or other outings we have, and especially when I know guests will be stopping by that day. Very cool bonus info to know about! Thanks for sharing that tip!
Rachel: You’re welcome. Thank you for the opportunity to tell you my story.
Rebecca: Is there anything else you would enjoy sharing with us about the Scentsy products or your business as a Scentsy Rep?
Rachel: I immediately fell in love with the warmers and all the different options, the huge variety with over 80 scents to choose from, the business opportunity, basically.. EVERYTHING! To put this in perspective, realize that I became a consultant BEFORE I EVEN OWNED ANY WARMERS OR SCENTSY PRODUCTS!!!
I love the fact that Scentsy can work around my busy schedule. I love that my friends and family LOVE Scentsy products! I love that Scentsy’s hostess plan makes it very easy for even the SMALLEST show to offer benefits to the person that opens their home or their heart. To sum it all up, Scentsy just makes me happy!
Rebecca: Wow! That is exciting! So you didn’t even own any of the products before signing up to become a Scentsy consultant? You just knew you adored the product that much and wanted a way to get it for yourself at a discount besides seeing the great value in being able to help spread the word about Scentsy products to all your friends and family?
Rachel: That’s right. It was so worth it too!
Rebecca: Very inspiring story, Rachel! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit with us and share a little more about why Scentsy both as a product and as a business is well worth the investment. Is there a favorite product you would like to point out to us with your experience in the business?
Rachel: I think the product I’d recommend most is a “Full Size Scentsy System.” For $40.00 you get your choice of any non-feature full size warmer in the line and the choice of 3 bars of scent. That pricing is a $5.00 savings! But if you act soon, you can catch it at an additional $4.00 off for just $36! Click here to check it out. It also makes the perfect gift because the person you’re giving it to can purchase ANY warmer and choose their own scents as well.
Rebecca: I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting your website and browsing through the catalog! So cool that RIGHT NOW there is a 10% discount on a large selection of items in your catalog for the month of August! I don’t want to miss that since I think I have two favorites! The first one (being a mom with a new little guy) would be the Scentsy Buddy! So many adorable stuffed animal characters to choose from and how neat to be able to stick a scent pak right in the back of it and let it soothe the child when they’re going to sleep at night or just want to have a friendly, sweet-smelling pal to hug and snuggle with. How fun! Very affordable too! Oh, cool! I just noticed they are currently on sale too! Click here to check the Scentsy Buddies out at the sale price!
The second one is PERFECT for all my homeschool moms out there or crafty friends! It’s the Full Size DIY Scentsy Warmers! How awesome! You get to create a one-of-a-kind warmer for a birthday, wedding or baby shower! With 23 theme packs and 3 different warmer designs …I think being able to have a blank canvas to work with and create your own unique warmer as a gift, or for a room in your house is such a treat!
Rachel: It has been a blessing to share with you today! As a token of my appreciation, I’d like to offer a special prize…a $20 Gift Certificate towards product from my Scentsy Store as a Giveaway for your readers! 🙂 Thank you all for visiting Rebecca’s site, Love2EncourageYou, today!
