Holiday Pomegranate Air FreshenersHoliday Pomegranate Air Fresheners

Everybody enjoys freshening up the house with a nice candle or some room spray. We would like to take it to the next level and show you how you can make your very own homemade air freshener for the end of the year! We have many recipes like this on our website that can be used for any day, but the one we will be sharing with you today is for the upcoming holiday season. Some of the others on the website are also holiday themed, but this is a brand new recipe of ours. We will be talking about our Holiday Pomegranate Air Freshener that will leave the room smelling absolutely delicious and reminiscent of Christmas!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden:

Aroma Beads
Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red
Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Black
Air Freshener Jars and Lids

Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Ziploc Bag- Gallon Size

Aroma Beads

Natures Garden aroma beads are perfect for all of the air fresheners you want to create. They are versatile and can be melted, scented, colored, and layered. These are fragrance-absorbing aroma beads that hold 30% of the fragrance oil applied to them. They add a great addition to potpourri, sachets, and organza bags. They can be placed in smelly jelly jars as well. However, do not add them to a heated potpourri burner because they should not be held near a flame or put in any sort of heat source. Naturally, without a heat source, the scent throw will not be as strong as a candle, for example. Aroma bead air fresheners work best in smaller areas because the scent throw hinges on the circulation of the air. By adding fragrance to the beads, you can freshen up the scent in your closets, your car, shoes, vents, lockers, bathrooms and so much more!

Adding the Aroma BeadsAdding the Aroma Beads

This recipe only contains six steps, and is super easy to follow along with. To begin, weigh out one pound of the Aroma Beads. We are going to add them to a one gallon sized Ziploc bag. We will be using a larger bag because it will make the process of mixing everything together easier as we add more to it. 

Incorporating the Fragrance OilIncorporating the Fragrance Oil

Next, we are going to weigh out two ounces of the Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. The fragrance is the most important part of the air fresheners, since having a good scent is the point of making one of these. This fragrance will make your air freshener smell like Christmas time. It has notes of pomegranate, sparkling citrus, dewberry, blackberry, iris, jasmine, sheer musk, sandalwood, and red cassis. The word cassis means black currant, and it is popularly used in wine.

Combining the Aroma Beads and Fragrance OilCombining the Aroma Beads and Fragrance Oil

After weighing out the holiday pomegranate fragrance oil, add it to the same Ziploc bag as the aroma beads are in. This will combine the ingredients together that are necessary to form your holiday air freshener. Carefully pour it into the bag, so as not to create a mess. It cannot get into the seal part of the Ziploc bag, because it will make the next step difficult or impossible.

Adding the Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye ColorantsAdding the Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye Colorants

With the aroma beads and the holiday pomegranate fragrance oil combined, it is time for the third step. We are going to add six drops of spectrum liquid candle dye in the red shade. We will also add only one drop of the black spectrum liquid candle dye to the Ziploc bag. 

Mixing All of the Ingredients TogetherMixing All of the Ingredients Together

Once both have been added, seal the bag completely. Shake the bag until the aroma beads, holiday pomegranate fragrance oil, red spectrum liquid candle dye, and black spectrum liquid candle dye are mixed evenly. Once this step is complete, you will have your colored aroma beads!

Pouring Aroma Beads into the JarPouring Your Aroma Beads Into the Jars

The aroma beads are now colored the dark red color that we wanted from the start. Pour these colored aroma beads into the six jars you are going to use. You need to allow them to set up completely before placing them in the area that you wish to freshen up.

Allowing the Air Freshener to Set UpAllowing the Air Freshener to Set Up

Allow the beads to absorb the Holiday Pomegranate Fragrance Oil in the jars before putting lids on them. It is going to take approximately 24 hours for the fragrance to become completely absorbed in the aroma beads.

Setting Up Your Finished ProductSetting Up Your Finished Product

Finally, our last step is to place seals and lids on top of the six air freshener jars. The lids we used are given in the Natures Garden Air Freshener Plastic Jar and Lid Set. We sell them in units of ten, which makes it easier on you to be able to create multiple fresheners at once.

We hope that you love this homemade Holiday Air Freshener Recipe as much as we do! The recipe is super simple to follow and makes a nice addition to many areas in the home!

Other Types of Holiday Air Fresheners

At Natures Garden, we have plenty of other air fresheners that can be made from a lot of our fragrance oils! Let’s take a look at a few other ways to scent your home this holiday season!

Gingerbread Aroma Bead Air Fresheners

Gingerbread Aroma Beads Air Fresheners

We have another holiday themed one, which is our Gingerbread Aroma Beads Air Freshener. This is another one that you can make this holiday season either for around the house or to use it as a Christmas gift. This recipe creates six to seven air fresheners and it only takes four ingredients to make. These are aroma beads, Gingerbread Fragrance Oil, brown spectrum liquid candle dye, and our one ounce Mica pigment. This glittery pigment comes in either gold or a silver diamond dust, whichever you prefer to use.

The gingerbread man shapes are created by using cookie cutters, which fits right in with the Christmas season! All you need to do is mix the candle dye and the fragrance oil in a Ziploc bag. Shake it gently. Then, add your aroma beads to the same bag and shake all of it together once again. Keep shaking until all of the liquid is evenly dispersed among the aroma beads. Wait at least 24 to 48 hours to allow the beads to fully absorb the fragrance oil. After waiting, pour the mixture into the cookie cutters and bake in the oven five to six minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Metallic Scented StonesMetallic Scented Stones

Next, you can create the Metallic Scented Stones. These stones are easy to make and use both arrowroot powder and Dead Sea salt from Natures Garden along with flour. Finally, this room scenting recipe is scented with Precious Gifts Fragrance Oil. This Christmas scent is reminiscent of the gifts given to the baby Jesus by the three kings.  A well rounded accord of frankincense and myrrh, vanilla extract, with unique top notes of French jasmine and English Ivy.

Spicy Liquid PotpourriSpicy Liquid Potpourri

Finally, another easy to make room scenting recipe is the Spicy Liquid Potpourri.  This is a simple combination of coconut oil and fragrance oil. We also added a red color to give it a festive holiday vibe! It is scented with Natures Garden’s Potpourri Spice Fragrance Oil. So, what does this fragrance oil smell like? It is the combination of freshly ground cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, ginger, and clove.

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!
