A year ago, this is how I started using my warmer:
Yesterday night, I posted a picture of my new Young Living essential oil diffuser on Instagram:

I used a #Scentsy hashtag in the post, exclaiming that I finally had an alternative to their scent warmers which triggered a
Essential Oils aren't really your typical "slimy" oils. From Young Living's Website: "Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties...Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature's pure essence."
Regardless of this, what a lot of people don't realize is that : there is no official organization or group that certifies essential oils.
"CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade is a registered trademark of dōTERRA Holdings, LLC representing internal standards of quality assessment and material control. The CPTG protocol is not administered by government or industry regulatory agencies and does not imply regulatory approval of dōTERRA products."
Crazy, right?? This is JUST a marketing ploy, people. That's it. Young Living really is no different, because like I said, there is no governing body that certifies essential oils!! This is why I don't prefer one over the other (within reason). Scent wise I do prefer DoTerra's Lavender though! Now, where am I going with this? How does Scentsy tie in? I will explain:
Scentsy is a fairly new company. They are definitely brand new to essential oils. The essential oils that they offer are not "therapeutic grade" (which isn't a real thing btw). By Therapeutic Grade, I mean usable the three ways that 100% essential oils should be able to be used: Internally, Topically, and by inhalation (or distillation). From the few short hours that the news of the Scentsy EO line has been announced, I have had a few encounters with people who have said that the Scentsy line will be an Aromatherapy line only. They won't be able to be ingested, or used topically with a carrier oil. Now, I don't know of the truth to this, but this is enough for me to not trust the quality of the oil that they will be providing. Here are some examples of what they will be offering:

SO. Long story short, folks: Please make sure you realize that QUALITY IS IMPORTANT!! What you diffuse, is what you are putting into the air! Choose an essential oil line that is trusted, ALL NATURAL, and SAFE.
The more you know, the better off you are!!
