What does every curious shopper do in the candle aisle?

But wait. Candles burn, they send pollutants into the air, and they are predominantly manufactured with potentially hazardous chemicals like toluene and benzene that have been linked to brain damage, lung disease, and central nervous system problems. According to Ruhullah Massoudi, a chemistry professor at South Carolina State University, “For a person who lights a candle every day for years or just uses them frequently, inhalation of these dangerous pollutants drifting in the air could contribute to the development of health risks like cancer, common allergies, and even asthma.”

…Ain’t nobody got time for that!

With dozens of scents to choose from, how are you supposed to efficiently pick a Scentsy fragrance that you love? You actually have a few options to help you discover the scent that will once again turn you into a Target commercial, but this time replace that candle with a wax bar.
