Aroma Beads- Sachet Beads


Aroma Beads (Sachet Beads):  1 POUND

Fragrance-absorbing plastic beads; can absorb 30% fragrance oil. Add fragrance oil and liquid candle dye (if desired) to these aroma beads, and allow to set for approximately 1-5 days to allow the beads to absorb the fragrance and color. Use them as air fresheners in sachets, in smelly jelly jars, in closets, in automobiles, in lockers, in shoes, in vacuum cleaners, in drawers, in vacuum cleaner bags, in air cleaner vents, ect. These beads can also be used to make scented ornaments. You will make excellent profit margins with these products! 

Do not set scented beads on wood surfaces, plastic surfaces, or painted surfaces; the fragrance can damage these surfaces. Do not use aroma beads in a heated potpourri burner because they will melt. Do not use as candle wax, and do not place aroma beads near a flame.  The fragrance oils in these aroma beads can eat through certain types of plastics, so be careful when storing these products.  Remember to use warning labels on your products when selling them.  Due to the fact that aroma beads are not heated like candles are, they will naturally not have as strong as a scent throw. 

How to make 1 finished cup of aroma beads:  Mix 1/4 cup of your choice of Natures Garden Candle Supply fragrance oil and 1-4 drops of liquid candle dye .  Do not use food coloring, and do not use soap coloring.  We use 1-4 drops of candle dye depending on how dark or pastel we want our colors.  Pour this mixture over 1 cup of our aroma beads (sachet beads).  Use a wooden stick or a metal spoon and mixture.  If you are mixing your aroma beads in a container that has a lid, put the lid on and shake the bead mixture really well.  If you would like to add some sparkle to your aroma beads, add 1/4 tsp. of mica pigment or cosmetic grade fine glitter to your mixture while the beads are still wet.  Allow your aroma beads to absorb the fragrance and color for at least 1 day or until they become dry.  Some fragrances will take longer to dry.  If you notice that the aroma beads are still wet after 5 days, add a little more aroma beads to your mixture and shake.  Once the aroma beads are dry, you can put them in smelly jelly jars, or in sachet bags. 

How to make sachet bead hanging air fresheners and ornaments:  Prepare aroma beads as discussed above.  Place metal cookie cutters (the shape you desire) on a non-stick metal cookie sheet.  You will not be able to use this cookie sheet for baking food after you use it to make these fragranced products;  your food will taste like fragrance.  Pour approximately 1/4 inch of prepared aroma beads into the cookie cutters and spread evenly.  If you want a hole in your product so that you can later hang it, place a short 1/4 inch diameter screw in the spot where you want the hole to be located.  Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 4-5 minutes (or until the beads have melted together).  You may notice some smoking.  This is normal, but keep your eye on your products while they are in the oven.  Allow your ornaments to cool.  Remove the cookie cutter and the screw from the ornament, and peel the ornament from the cookie sheet.  You are done!  We do not recommend hanging these inside a hot car.  The aroma beads can melt at high temperatures.

Reviewer: A viewer from Knoxville, TN US 04/05/08

All of my fragrance oils have absorbed very well into these beads. And they do last waaay longer than a month. I've had some Pina Colada beads in my car since last summer, and my car STILL smells faintly of Pina Colada! I'm super happy with these beads!

These Rock!

Reviewer: A viewer from Oak Grove, KY US 09/23/09

My husband's truck always smells like grease, because he is an Army Chinook mechanic. Needless to say, I hated riding in his stinky truck. I purchased these beads and followed the directions given and put them in a sachet and hung it in his truck. The next day he came home bragging about how it smelled so good and he even had the guys outside at lunch sniffing his truck and how they all want one too now. I didn't dye them only scented them with Hugo Boss and it smells wonderful in there.
