I'll let everyone know if I find one that way we can all pheroblast our work places!

I wish I could (scent-wise, that is) but I'd be fired, it's against corporate policy. There's already certain fragrances I cannot wear to work because they're too strong for some of my co-workers. I would like an electric warmer for my bedroom, but I had that same worry, that it just wouldn't be strong enough, heat-wise.

Really? Even if you said it was an oil diffuser? What if you said it helped you with production or that it was for religious purposes? I know we aren't allowed to have refrigerators or toasters, but I don't think they will notice if I have a small tart warmer.

No the company has a specific regulation regarding the use of scent (i.e. perfume or anything like it). It falls under the category of possible offense in the workplace. Just as if someone were to display something potentially offensive to another coworker, scent can be interpreted in the same fashion, plus the environmental issue of possibly triggering a allergic reaction and/or migraine. And I understand that, as I get offended by certain fragrances too, although luckily everyone here is really good about sticking to the guidelines so if someone is wearing something I don't like I don't even notice it unless I happen to be right next to them (same goes for me and what I wear). But I wouldn't be disingenuous and attempt to use an excuse which doesn't even apply to me (such as being overtly religious, because I am not, not that it would work anyway).

That makes sense. We have a guy here, who smells like cat pee. It's offensive to some, if he comes by and I am eating something, I'll hold my breath so I don't take a bite of his smell.

LOL!

 

Yeah, you can only complain about artificial scents in the workplace. Complaining about someone's BO is likely off-limits.

Here are the candle warmers I use Candle Warmers

 

 

I use this one (they are under wax melt warmers) http://www.candlewarmers.com/ProductDetail.aspx?cat=38

 

 

So those are electric, right?

 

I *really* like this one:

They are electric and have a turn dial on and off switch on the cord itself so you don't have to unplug it all the time if ya don't wanna... (I personally just unplug it just to make sure... a wierd quirk of mine <_<)

 

Now the ones that light up ... http://www.candlewarmers.com/ProductDetail.aspx?cat=40 I believe use the heat from the light bulb to warm the wax... I have not given those type a whirl yet.

I also use a candle warming base and I use a white rammekin (sp?) dish I bought at walmart. It fits perfectly and looks like they were made for each other so it's visually appealing too.

'K, I GOTS ta share this! I was using the Summer Love + Open Windows melt this afternoon, in hopes of smoothing out the kids a bit, as they were getting kind of out-of-control with each other. Well! They'd needed to go outside and do some more raking (this is fire-season-yard-cleanup-time on the mountain). The bear that opened our car came through and hung out next door eating something for a while, so we didn't go out. He's a cute guy, but we don't need to shake hands or anything! I got distracted puttering around the house, and forgot to send the kids outside when the bear wandered off.

 

The kids *reminded* me that they were still inside by getting noisy...but they were having fun. I went to see what they were doing, and there on the living room floor I saw: all three kids--mind you, this is a big ol' 17 year old guy (with asperger's, so he's still willing to be *young* when he wants to) and his 14- and 9-yr-old sisters, sitting in a tight circle, with two giant stuffed-animal swans, PLAYING!!! Heeeeee!!! They were backlit by the afternoon sun, and I was all "awwwwwwww!"

 

Then I blew out the wax warmer and told them to go rake. Heh. :) <---evil, bad, naughty Mom!

Wish I had!!! Nah, I blew it with that one--didn't even try. It's hard to sneak up on my coyote babies anyway, especially the 17 yr old. I get a candid shot of him maybe twice a year! :ph34r:B):ph34r:

The BF has taken to these with the enthusiasm of a religious zealot. :20628860864593fef0b8f29:

 

He says the experience is so much more organic than smokey carbony incense...it's more like the experience of warm kitchen smells wafting through the house.

Oh, and John had a good idea about what to do with the used ones....still have a scent but maybe not another burn's worth. He's piling them up in a basket in his bathroom - says they work great like a basket of potpourri. The BF liked the idea so much he's doing that too. Think I will give this a try as well. I just keep forgetting and throwing them out. :/

Sunday I simmered Spa Mint in the tiara- my sister SuzyQ was visiting from her west wing Penthouse Suite- we were laying on the bed watching Annie. I was recounting the latest family/divorce drama, and called my sis in law to give her the DL and 411 in order to be prepared for later that evening... My sister had arrived to the tiara room ready to dish and hash schemes with me- she was stretched out across my bed like the panther she resembles and said.. "Mmm smells like a Spa In Here". Next thing I know Suzy Q's eyes are starting to flutter, I excused myself to fetch some Gatorade for the Hatorade that was going on and I come back to no SuzyQ. I ran to the west wing of her suite and saw her in her goosedown nest and pillow shams with her eye mask on. SpaMint took her DOWN!

 

Later on when she rose with the sunset- she said she felt so relaxed and it was the best nap she ever had!

 

I love this stuff!

...so liz, does that mean you had *soulful & loving* cheap meaningless ductape sexx instead? :jumpforjoy: (DANG! We need a duct taped smiley!)

 

 

 

My own recent phero melt was Garland and Lace in my bedroom, then in the rest of my house. It was relaxing, pleasant, and reeeealllllly yummy smelling. Fixed my icky mood right up! Also used--on a different day--an unpheroed NOX and it was wonderful. These are really good stuffs! B)
