Prepare the Aroma Beads For the Shimmering Air Freshener Tutorial
First of all, you are going to need to prepare the aroma beads for the shimmering air freshener tutorial. In total, you will need to have one pound of the unscented and uncolored aroma beads. Anyone that has purchased the one pound bag of aroma beads will know that it comes in a Ziploc bag. While the one pound portion of our aroma beads is already in a Ziploc bag, you will want to transfer the aroma beads to a larger Ziploc bag. The original bag is too small and you will have a hard time mixing in the mica, colorant, and fragrance oil. So, you will need to pour the entire pound of unscented aroma beads into a gallon Ziploc bag. This will give you room to mix together all of the other ingredients.
Next, you are going to add Fragrance Oil to the aroma beads. So, you are going to need to weigh out 2 ounces of the NG Cancan Type Fragrance Oil into a small bowl. After you have that amount of scented oil measured out, you will need to add this fragrance oil to the aroma beads in your Ziploc bag. Then, you will need to seal the bag. Once your bag is completely sealed, you will want to use your hands to incorporate the scent. You can both shake and squeeze the bag to mix in the scent. You will want to continue to do this until the fragrance oil looks like it is evenly dispersed throughout aroma beads.
The NG Cancan Type Fragrance Oil is a gorgeous aroma that you will be sure to love in your diy room scent! This scented oil has notes of fresh mandarin that is balanced with hints of apple peel to open this feminine fragrance. Then, this lovely aroma continues with jasmine, violet and lily to form a floral accord. These floral notes are balanced with an aroma of woodland fern. Further, it has hints of berry at the heart of the scent. Finally, a sensual blend of cashmere musk, golden amber and vanilla bean creates a romantic sweetness that surrounds the floral bouquet. So, you will be sure to enjoy the beautiful aroma of this fragrance oil in your homemade room scent recipe!
Now, you are going to be adding the candle colorant for this shimmering air freshener tutorial. So, you will need to add one drop of the burgundy liquid candle dye to your scented aroma beads. This will provide your aroma beads with a beautiful pink color in the final product. After adding the burgundy candle colorant, you are ready to move on to the next step in this air freshener making project.
After adding the burgundy liquid candle dye, you are going to begin mixing the candle colorant for the shimmering air freshener project. You are going to need to mix in the aroma bead dye into the scented beads thoroughly. So, you are going to need to seal up the bag and use your hands to work everything together. Once you have an even pinkish color throughout your scented aroma beads, then you are ready to move on to the next part of the process.
Next, you are going to add the diamond dust mica powder to your aroma bead mixture. So, you will need to use a measuring spoon to add in one tablespoon of Natures Garden’s diamond dust mica powder to add some shimmer and shine. Once you have added this glittery powder to your mixture, you are ready to move on to the next step in this process.
Again, you are going to need to mix everything together. This time you are going to be mixing the diamond dust mica into the shimmering air freshener project. So, seal the Ziploc bag completely and use your hands to mix. Then, you are going to want to either shake or squeeze the bag until all the glittery mica has been dispersed throughout the aroma bead mixture. Once you have an even shimmer on all of your aroma beads, you are ready for the next step in this process.
Allow the Aroma Beads Time To Absorb the Scented Oil
Now that everything is mixed together, you are going to need to let your aroma beads absorb the NG CanCan Type Fragrance Oil. For now, you will need to keep the Ziploc bag sealed. Then, just set the bag in a safe place to cure. You will need to wait about 24 hours to make sure that all of the scented oil has been absorbed by your aroma beads. If you don’t feel that everything has been absorbed at that point, then it may be a good idea for you to wait a bit longer to ensure that your air freshener recipe is ready to use.
After your aroma beads have fully absorbed all of the NG CanCan Type Fragrance Oil, you are ready to fill the jars. This room scenting project will create about six finished air fresheners. So, you will need six of these vented air freshener jars. Then, fill each of them with your pretty pink aroma beads. Once you have used all of your aroma beads to fill these jars, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.
Once all of your air freshener jars have been filled , you are ready to finish up with the packaging process. Each one of your air freshener jars will have a clear plastic liner. You will want to add this fitment to prevent the aroma beads from spilling. This is important if you are storing or shipping your shimmering air fresheners. Also, this liner lid will help hold in the scent until you are ready to use the air fresheners. Finally, place a vented lid on top of each jar.
Of course, when you are ready to use your finished air freshener, all you need to do is remove the plastic fitment. Then, you will want to only replace the lid with holes. This will allow the scent to be released from the plastic jars. So, your homemade air freshener can fill your home with the lovely aroma of the NG Cancan Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden!
An Elegant Scent Inspired By a Scandalous Dance
The lovely NG Cancan Type Fragrance Oil has an aroma that is sensual and entirely feminine, which truly fits the name. While this dance had eventually become a mainstream part of French culture, it was initially regarded as obscene and scandalous. In fact, the dance was used to push back against the strict Victorian values put on women at the time. If you are curious about the origins of the Cancan and the movement this dance was a part of, then take a look at the article called A Brief History Of The Cancan, France’s Famously Raunchy Dance from Culture Trip!
