O/T Better Homes and Gardens Scented Wax Cubes

Started 1322795389.05 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1322859065.573 by monicakm

I read about these "scentsy" type wax cubes on a blog somewhere and so I popped into walmart tonight and picked up a new electric warmer for only $15 and 4 packages of the scented wax cubes for only $2 a piece! I must say after trying the scentsy wax cubes and not being all that excited about them or the price these BH&G wax cubes are awesome! I only used one cube from the package and my house smells wonderful (orange clove)!

Anyone else try this product?

I love them, and for the price you sure can't beat them. The first ones I ever bought , were cinnamon, they smelled like redhots .LOL

I picked up a pine fir one, or something along that line, last night. I have it melting now and I feel like we have a real tree in the room. Love the scent and love the price! GREAT throw!

Has anyone seen the peppermint candy cane scented cubes by chance? The walmart I went into had the large jar and tea lights but not the cubes :(

I bought some of these too for my scentsy warmer and they work great!!! I use 2 or 3 cubes at a time and sometimes they don't completely melt like the scentsy ones, but they definitely scent my large family room!! And you can't beat $2/ea. I'm going to buy the BHG warmer for my office now. I love the candle versions of these too...a large jar for $4 vs. $20 for yankee and they smell just as good!

Thanks for posting this! I saw those this past weekend and I wondered if they were good. I will definitely pick some up because of your review!! These would be great stocking stuffers!

Ya know what else.....run to WalMart the day after Christmas and they are marked down to a dollar! Foolishly, I only bought two last year because they were new to me and I just did not wanna waste my money! See? Foolishly!!!

I have the Soft Cashmere Amber, Lemongrass Verbena & Lilac. Scentsationals.com must make them for Wal-Mart since the inside of the plastic container says to contact them for customer service. Check out their site. They have tons of different scents for $2.99 etc.

I tried finding them on the BH&G website and couldnt find them and walmart.com only has one package of 4 scented cubes. Do you have a link by chance?

Can I say, at this very moment I have NO LESS than 13 packs in my cupboard{#emotions_dlg.tt1} and have only been aware of them since Oct, from the Home board (under "Candles). I bought some to give to my DD who also loves! Interestingly enough, the ones from BH&G seem to have a stronger throw, with only 1 cube burning at a time, than the Scentsations brand. As like all other brands, some have a stronger throw than others, but all the scents are WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! Thankfully my Walmart has a huge display of them, and all the Christmas scents are in the Christmas shop in the store. I even recommended them to a shopper who was in the aisle w/me, and she walked away with 3 different packs............They are my HG in home scents and for $2.00 a pack, you can't miss. Enjoy yours and have fun testing others.

I figured the Scentationals scents would be just as strong since it looks like they make them? Our Wal-Mart does not have a huge selection.

Here's a little hint: If you got the Walmart melter with the light blub and the little "tray" in which you put the cubes, try putting it in the freezer for awhile after you finish using it. The old wax will slide or pop right out.

I do that with my yankee candle tarts{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

Nightowlz: yeah, I was surprised, however, maybe it depends on the scent. I know the "Gingerbread Man" by scentsationals doesn't have nearly as strong a throw as "Spiced Pumpkin Pie" with BH&G label, nor does it last as long. ScentSationals makes them all and BH&G puts their label on some. Either way, they're ALL made right here in the good ole USA!

babyb: YES!!! I love my "stash"Kiss

I have the warmer I got as a Christmas gift last year. I bought 4 packs of the BH&G @ Walmart a few weeks ago. 1 of the scents I got was called Sleigh Ride. Can't wait to use them all.

If it smells anything like Gold Canyon's Peppermint Bark grab it! I love that scent and bought extras last year to warm all year round.

Gold Canyon's warmers have 'pods' that I like much better than the cubes. Just put the pod in and when you want to change scents no messy clean up. Love that aspect!

I do love it but i saw these a couple of days ago at Wal-Mart & wondered if they're good..thanks for the post!!! i'm running out to wal-mart{#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I bought the orange clove this week, too. Also the eggnog. Love them both. I am imagining that these are "seasonal", so I am going to stock up on my next pilgrimage to WM.

I use Scentsy bricks but did try one BH&G pack a couple months ago, Tahitian Coconut. I was not happy with it. The "wax" smell was too prominent. But, with all this talk about BH&G being so GREAT, I thought I'd pull it out again and give it another try. Nope, I still don't like it :( Going to WM today and I'll try another scent.
