Smelly Jelly Kit Prepare and Sanitize

Make sure that you have sanitized your work space for this project so you have enough room to work and simple mistakes will be easier to avoid. Additionally, you will want to have all of your supplies and ingredients nearby and easily accessible to avoid time sensitive mistakes. Make sure that you have all of the supplies needed for this kit cleaned and ready to use. Also, have all of the ingredients that are not included in your kit ready and nearby. While this recipe is fairly simple, you can be led to create an imperfect productive by using dirty utensils or leaving your half finished product to search for ingredients.

Smelly Jelly Kit Making Instructions

Once you complete the first step you will want to make sure that you work quickly. Since many of the ingredients will need to disperse evenly, they need to be added before the smelly jelly crystals absorb all the water. This is so you are able to mix your ingredients well before the crystals swell entirely and make it more difficult to mix. Otherwise, you may have some issues with your finished product, whether it be that the fragrance didn’t disperse or that the color is concentrated in only one area of the jar. Thus, we’d recommend that you read through all the directions to understand what you will be doing and make your process slightly faster.

We should also note, when cleaning up make sure you do not put any smelly jelly crystals down your drain.  You want to place any lingering crystals in your garbage can.  Smelly jellies can hold up to 400 times their weight in water.  While they are biodegradable, they can clog your drain just because of the amount of water they can absorb.  So, just use caution.  Should you accidentally get some in your drain, simply pour table salt down your drain.  This should help to unclog it.

Smelly Jelly Kit Hydrating the Smelly Jelly Crystals

Smelly Jelly Kit Hydrating the Smelly Jelly CrystalsThe first step is to add the warm water and the smelly jelly crystals to one of the jars. Initially, we are going to fill up one of the six smelly jelly jars with the smelly jelly crystals. Now, add two teaspoons of the smelly jelly crystals one of your jars. Next, take your scale and make sure the units are set the units to ounces. Set the jar of smelly jelly crystals on the scale and tare your scale. Now, weigh 10 ounces of warm distilled water into the smelly jelly jar.

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding Liquid Soap

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding Liquid SoapSecond, you are going to want to add some liquid soap to the mixture. So, add in a few drops of clear, unscented liquid dish soap. You want the soap to be clear to avoid altering the color of dye you will choose later on. Also, you want the soap to be unscented to prevent an undesirable scent blend with your chosen fragrance oil.

For those questioning why soap is added to a room scenting creation, know that there is a legitimate reason. Adding the liquid soap is done to help the fragrance oil adhere better to the smelly jelly crystals. While this may cause soap bubbles to form later, these should pop over time. However, I don’t recommend shaking your final product as it will create an abundance of soap bubbles. Plus, I have not found shaking assist in dispersing color or fragrance after the smelly jelly crystals have completely absorbed the water.

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the Dye

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the DyeNext, we are going to add the soap dye and the fragrance oil to the smelly jelly jars. While not all kits will be exactly the same, there is an order to the random chance of what you will receive. For colorants, you should receive two different pigments to color your creation from a pool of red, blue, or yellow. Also, you will receive four one ounce bottles of different fragrance oils. While the scents included change, they are guaranteed to all be the Natures Garden quality you know and love. Plus, who doesn’t love a little surprise now and again?

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the Fragrance Oil

Smelly Jelly Kit Adding the Fragrance OilNow, make your creative choices and get ready to include the scent and color into your jars. Take your measuring spoons and weigh one and a half tablespoons of one of your provided fragrance oils. Next, take one of your provided dyes and add a few drops into the smelly jelly jar. Now, mix up your ingredients with a spoon to evenly disperse the color and fragrance oil.  It is important to mix the dye and scent before the smelly jelly crystals completely swell or you may have patchy and uneven distribution. While some further distribution may occur with some help from time and gravity, it’s not guaranteed that the distribution will be perfect after missing the correct timing.

Smelly Jelly Kit Letting the Crystals Swell

Finally, you are going to let your finished product sit undisturbed for about 15 minutes. This will allow the smell jelly crystals to absorb the remainder of the water, fragrance oil, and dye. If you notice a lighter portion on the side of the jar you can attempt to cap and turn the jar on its side. While this only has a chance of correcting the problem, the dye that hasn’t been absorbed could potentially sink to this patch and even things out.

Smelly Jelly Kit Creating the Remaining Smelly Jelly Jars

Smelly Jelly Kit Creating the Remaining Smelly Jelly JarsNext, you are going to repeat these steps with the five remaining smelly jelly jars. The steps will be the same for each jar with the only alterations being the color of dye or type of fragrance oil. I’d suggest that you do each jar separately to prevent uneven distribution due to the timing. If the smelly jelly crystals swell before you add the other ingredients, then it will be difficult or even impossible to evenly distribute the scent and color in your jar.

Smelly Jelly Kit Packaging and Using Your Product

Afterward, you are likely going to want to store some of your six finished smelly jelly jars. Now, you should take one of the white, flat circles and pop it into one of the gold lids. Since these lids have slits in them, you will require the white seal to help close the smelly jelly jar for storage. This method of sealing your jars should store the product well. Further, any smelly jelly jars that you are ready to use can be set up similarly. Simple remove the white seal from the jar and replace the lid. Since the lid has slits, replacing the gold lid will still allow you to use the smelly jelly jar.
