Aroma air freshener

Recommended Posts

I have tried so hard to make these aroma bead cat scents work, but am having no luck.  Everything goes good and I wait till oil is all absorbed into the beads .  But the scent never lasts and you can barley smell anything one it is used in the car.  Please please help.  I’m trying to make my customers happy but I feel like no matter what I try I can’t get the smell to work.

Are you curing your beads after they dry? I’ve read you need to continue to let them cure 7 days longer after absorbed

There are a lot of people that believe this helps but I've never found it to make a difference in my fresheners. I personally think once they're dry they're ready to bake.  But like you I've read this in different groups but just never felt like it made a difference. But who knows, we all get different results using the same things at times! What doesn't work for one might be the missing thing for someone else.

You should be weighing everything.  The most common ratio is 4:1.  That means 4 ounces of beads and 1 ounce of oil.  I don't think you can fit very many in a 4 ounce jar unless you are just making enough for one air freshener.  You can reduce the weights.  If it is 1 ounce of beads just use .25 ounce of oil.

I've only just received them so just going to start to make them all up so they will be to cure.. I just want to know how much fo to put into each of the 4oz jars

Like pcbrook said you can't fit very many in a 4 ounce jar. I use polypropylene bags and plastic containers to mix mine in. Make sure the plastic has the number 5 on it (although I'm not sure if this really matters since Fragrance oils come in bottles that don't have a 5) but just to be safe. I mix 8:2 ratio. You will need a scale to measure the weight of the beads and FO. Shake them every day and when they're dry they're ready to bake.
