Better Homes & Gardens

There's something about BH&G that makes me want to throw on my frilly florally tea length dress with high heels and pearls and strut around this house like a fab little 1950's housewife. And I absolutely love that their products are now available to the masses through stores like Wal-Mart. Imagine my surprise when I saw this beauty for only $15 gracing their shelves.

If you know anyone who does "Scentsy," then you know what this is. If not, let me break it down for you. This little guy has a light bulb inside. When switched on, it heats up the plate on top and melts little wax tarts that are made for them. A full sized Scentsy warmer is going to run you around $30, and the little wax tarts will run about $5-$20 for a pack. But the BH&G set at Wal-Mart is only $15 for a full sized burner (same size as a Scentsy) and the tart packs only run $2 each!

How can you not love a deal like that? I was on the fence until another Marine wife rolled up next to me and started gushing to her husband about all the new scents that were out. When I asked her how they compared she gave it rave reviews compared to her Scentsy burner (which she also loved, but the BH&G were a better deal). So I started grabbing tarts and sniffing. Which, by the way, is another convenience I love: I can't smell the tarts in the catalogues, but I can stand and whiff all I want to at Wal-Mart.

Currently I have French Lilac burning which smells like Easter to me. I also burned the Vanilla Caramel Spice in our bedroom for a few days and the smell still lingers in there. Talk about a sinfully heady fragrance! YUM-MY. (The great thing is, once you're ready to switch scents all you have to do is pour the wax back into the container, wipe out the plate, and put in a new tart.) I can't wait to try out the Creamy Tahitian Coconut come summer. It has a light scent that I know I'm going to love when it's time to start BBQing outside again.

So if you're not fortunate enough to know a Scentsy dealer or you're looking for something equally comparable at a great price then definitely rush over to your local Wal-Mart and see if they stock these (I found ours in the candle section). You won’t be sorry!

I was in no way paid or compensated by Wal-Mart, Better Homes & Gardens, or any of their affiliates for sharing this info with you. My opinions and experiences are 100% my own.


  1. so good to know they sell this @ Walmart. but I gotta say, I do love my Scentsy dealer! ;)

  2. I know so many people who do, I've just never been fortunate enough to know anyone. Now that I have this, I don't have to! ;)

  3. Oh, thanks for sharing!!! I LOVE Scentsy products, but my hubby hates the bill that it comes with. lol. I must run to Wally-World now and stock up before everyone else discovers this great deal!!!!


Thanks for visiting my little slice of the internet! Comments, questions, and feedback are greatly appreciated and I'll do my best to answer (or input) on anything you have to say.

Oh, and FYI: snarky, mean, abusive, or comments meant to start arguments will not be published. This is my happy place. I'd like to keep it that way. :)
