What Size Bulb Does a Scentsy Warmer Use

What Size Bulb Does a Scentsy Warmer Use:

This is such a common question so I figured I would write a blog post regarding the topic. Our Scentsy Bulb Warmers come in three different sizes- 25 watt, 20 watt and 15 watt. 

Scentsy Nightlight Warmer Bulb/Watt:

Mini Scentsy Warmers (Nightlights) all use the 15 watt light bulb. Please Note: The 15 watt bulb resembles regular nightlight bulbs but the wattage is different. Most nightlight warmers use anywhere from 4-10 watts but these aren’t sufficient for warming Scentsy Wax. So if you bought a bulb in the store and it’s not melting your wax this is probably the reason.

This is where it gets tricky. Scentsy Warmers come in three different sizes, we used to refer to them as Full Size, Mid-Size and Plug In so it was a little easier to decipher but the names no longer apply. The easiest way to tell what size bulb your Scentsy Warmer uses is to flip it over or check the tag. There is either a silver label on the bottom and it indicates either a 20W or 25W (see photo) or next to the plug there is a white label that indicates the wattage (see photo). This tells you what size bulb you need. If for some scentsy light bulb labelreason your warmer’s label is missing than Contact Me or chat with me online and I should be able to find out for you. 

Where to Buy Scentsy Bulbs:

You can buy most of the bulbs in stores but it can be hit and miss with the correct wattage. You can also buy Scentsy Bulbs at my online store. The bulbs are $2 each or 3 for $5-these prices are the best that I know of. You can shop for replacement bulbs and other accessories below:

    1. Hi Lorraine,
      No, you should not use more than 15 watts as it could be dangerous to use more than the recommended wattage.
