A New Alternative to the Traditional Candle

Do you love walking into your office to be welcomed by one of your favorite scents but hate lighting candles because of the fear of causing a fire? Do you hate the thought of spending another $20 to replace it after it finally burns out? If so, the perfect solution for your office is the Scentsy Candle! The new stylish and alternative product to a traditional candle and a product we love to use at GRACESHIP!

Scentsy Electric Candle Warmers are a safe, flameless alternative to a traditional scented wick candle. The candle warmer melts and warms candle wax in an electric ceramic warmer releasing the fragrance into the air, meaning NO BURING, just simply turn it on with a flip of a switch. Making a safer home for you, your family and your pets.

There are over 131 stylish Candle Warmers available for sale, along with Candle Bar’s in different scent’s to reach your desired fragrance. All you have to do is break off one piece/cube of wax from your Candle Bar and place it in the top dish of your favorite Scentsy Candle Warmer, turn it on and the bulb will warm the wax to allow the scent of your choice to release the long lasting fragrance into your home, office, dorm or classroom.

When all of the fragrance has left the melted wax simply pour the melted wax into the garbage, wipe the warm dish with a paper towel and replace with a new scent! How easy is that. The price is also affordable which is just an added bonus, ranging from $25 to $35 for the warmer itself and only $5 for a Candle bar that includes 6 wax blocks, to last you several months they are for sure a cheaper, safer and much more stylish alternative to the traditional candle. Scentsy Candle’s and products can be found onlinehereor through a local consultant in your area.

Prezi, the 3D Alternative to PowerPoint

 

Wanna wow your boss with your next presentation? Prezi is a presentation software that we think blows PowerPoint out of the water! Prezi allows you to make rockstar slideshows in a breeze.

Prezi makes it easy to explore and share ideas on a virtual canvas. Once you start using Prezi you’ll never present with PowerPoint again!

One thing that makes Prezi so unique is its “Zooming User Interface” (ZUI). This allows users to create a presentation in a non-linear fashion, as opposed to PowerPoint where one slide comes after another.  Prezi is based online, so you can access it anywhere, making it more convenient than PowerPoint. As long as you have a mobile device and the internet you can access your Prezi. You can also save it to a flash drive or other devices.

Prezi can be used for any number of things: business conferences, product showcases, education, or collaborative designs! The best part is that Prezi can be used absolutely free of charge and is compatible with Mac and PC, so anyone can use it.

Check out their website www.prezi.com and start using this great business tool! Go to http://prezi.com/learn/grouping-and-layering/ and learn how to optimize your Prezi to make it more appealing and organized!

Stay light, stay fast, stay mobile with Prezi and GRACESHIP!
