My mother in law gave me a Scentsy burner and a brick of delicious smelling vanilla. I would use it for special occasions and never really thought much about it. That is until my sister started selling Scentsy. I did the research...and it turns out that having the small outlet plug in Scentsy burners in different rooms in the house was actually cheaper and SAFER than having scented candles, especially since Hubster liked the pretty spendy ones. IF you've ever left a scented candle burning for a while you realize you just spent $8 to perfume one room for one day. Not cool in my checkbook, not cool at all.
I figured that if I bought 5 bricks of different scents from my sister I could have different smells for different rooms and different occasions. Hubster likes them so much that he'll actually call the command to "Scentsy this place up!" before we have guests. It's also just a nice way for a stay at home mom to feel like her home is as pretty as it can be. Don't get me wrong. I am certainly no Martha Stewart (did you SEE my muffin debacle?) but there is just something about yummy spring smells during the spring or delicious baking smells during the winter to really boost your spirits.
I'm not trying to sell you Scentsy at all. I actually only buy the bricks from my sister but the burners from Wally world (yuck..) but this is for all the Scentsy users out there who may not have heard of this trick.
So let's say that you have a lovely floral scent in your living room but you're looking for a change and the wax hasn't quite run out of smell. OR it may have run out of smell and you just want it gone. There are a ton of ways you get the still warm wax out that require possibly burning yourself or spilling wax on your precious new laptop. *Perish the thought!*
I'm a woman who likes change. I thrive on it. I use a different spot for my 'writing' all the time because I feel like it's inspiring. No....my 'mom office' is still a work in progress and is NOT inspiring, but more on that later right? I like to change my scents pretty often and don't want to throw out a perfectly good wax blob of goodness.
Get to the point already right?! Here is the simple answer. Put your burner with the cool/solid wax still in it, in the freezer. Leave it there for at least 10 minutes or so. When you open your freezer this is what you will most likely see. Pretty awesome huh?

What is YOUR favorite room scent?
