How to Use Aroma Beads: What Are Aroma Beads?

Aroma Beads are clear beads made of plastic and are very absorbent. Since these beads are absorbent, they can be used to create some fantastic air fresheners. In fact, aroma beads can absorb up to 30% of the fragrance oil. Since they absorb fragrance, they make wonderful room scents. So, they can either be used on their own to scent your home or they can be added to potpourri to create a lovely room scent blend.

Ultimately, our aroma beads are all used to create all kinds of different aroma bead air fresheners. All you need to make basic diy aroma beads is the aroma beads and the fragrance oils. However, there are so many fun things that you can add to make fantastic air fresheners. So, you can use unique containers, cosmetic colorants, cookie cutters in fun shapes, or many other wonderful ingredients to create your recipes. Many people have used this product as air fresheners in sachets, in smelly jelly jars, in closets, in automobiles, in lockers, in shoes, in vacuum cleaners, in drawers, in air cleaner vents, and so much more.

How to Use Aroma Beads: How Do You Make Aroma Beads?

Aroma bead recipes are fairly simple to create. As long as you know what you are doing, these recipes are low stress and very fun. While there are a few different kinds of recipes that you can choose to create with these beads, there are a few steps that remain the same. First, you will always need to allow your aroma beads to soak in fragrance until everything has been absorbed. Depending on the fragrance you choose and the amount you add, the waiting time can vary. Some may only need to soak over night while others could take up to five days. But, it shouldn’t take more than a week. If you still see leftover oil seven days, then it may be a sign that your beads cannot absorb anymore oil. So, you will want to add a few more beads to absorb the rest of the fragrance oil.

Since aroma beads are used to scent the room, they are often thought of being similar to candles. Although they both can use candle making fragrance oils and colorants, a key difference is that aroma beads can’t be used for a hot throw. While it may seem like a good idea to create an aroma bead candle, this will not work as it will melt and burn the plastic. So, you can only have a cold scent throw with this product. So, the product will be best for scenting small areas, like a closet, luggage bag, purse, desk drawer of car air freshener.

How to Use Aroma Beads: How Long Do Aroma Beads Last?

Of course, the most important part of an air freshener is the scent. So, you will want a product that will last as long as possible. Since aroma beads are able to absorb quite a bit of fragrance, they are typically able to outlast other types of air fresheners. However, this can vary depending on the fragrance oil you use. Some fragrances are just naturally stronger than others. So, pick a good candle scent and use the suggested amount and you will have a fantastic room scenting product! You can find some of our strongest candle scents on the Top Candle Scents section of the Natures Garden site.

How to Use Aroma Beads: Can Increase the Scent Throw?

While you can’t create a hot scent throw, there are some things your can do to increase the scent throw of your aroma beads with the same fragrance oil. First, you can increase the air flow circulation of the room. This will help the cold scent throw carry throughout your entire house! Another option that you have to increase the scent is to set your aroma bead ornament in the sun. While you don’t want your aroma bead ornaments to get warm enough to melt, allowing them to get a little warmer will help increase your scent throw a bit. Also, the Organza Air Freshening Beads Recipe in the little pouches are perfect for leaving in the car to get warm and provide a better scent throw.

But, there are so many places that you can decide to use these, too.

How to Use Aroma Beads: Additional Information

Something important to mention for using aroma bead ornaments in the car is that they may melt. Depending on where you live, your closed car has the potential to get very hot in the summer months. These extreme temperatures could cause your ornaments to begin to melt and fall apart. This would cause a mess and waste your perfectly good fragrance! So, we recommend not using this method for car air fresheners.

How to Use Aroma Beads: How Can I Decorate Aroma BeadsHow to Use Aroma Beads: How Can I Decorate Aroma Beads

Of course, it is fun to have a room scenting recipe that looks cute. Luckily, there are many ways that you can create recipes that are super cute! First, you can use Liquid Candle Colorants to add a pop of color to your recipes. This color would be absorbed just like the fragrance oil. Another option your have for decorating is mica shimmer. You can add some sparkles while the aroma beads are absorbing fragrance to get the mica to stick to the wet beads. Also, you could dust some mica on a finished aroma bead ornament. Speaking of aroma bead ornaments, you can use puffy paint to draw fun designs on any of your finished aroma bead ornaments!

How to Use Aroma Beads: Important to Know

While these recipes can be fun, you should be aware of how fragrance oils need to be handled. First, fragrance oils can eat through finished surfaces, painted surfaces, or plastic surfaces. So, be aware of where you set your aroma beads to soak! If the fragrance seeps out onto an unprotected surface it could lead to damage. We like to leave our aroma beads on the back of the toilet in the bathroom as it can’t damage porcelain. Also, fragrance oils should be kept away from children and pets, as they may try to eat the fragrance. If your child does ingest a fragrance, contact poison control immediately.

How to Use Aroma Beads: Can I Use Soap Colorants?

No, you can’t use soap colorants in your diy aroma beads. Also, you can’t use food coloring in these recipes. Both of these colorants are water soluble and the aroma beads will not absorb them as well as they would for a candle colorant. So, using either food coloring or soap colorants would lead to your finished product leaking color until all the color is gone. This will look bad, make a huge mess, and ultimately be a waste of supplies.

Witching Hour FragranceWitching Hour Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The “witching hour” commonly refers to the time of night when witches and other supernatural beings are believed to be at their most powerful. In medieval times, it was believed that any woman out after midnight without a ‘legitimate reason’ to be out could have been suspected of witchcraft. In more modern times, the witching hour refers to the last hour of stock trading between 3pm and 4pm which sees a high amount of activity. Not as exciting as magic and ghosts and ghouls. Witching Hour Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is perfect for your fall bath and body recipes
