Scented Jars Project

by Allison B. Kontur (

If you missed our Sachet Bead Tutorial previously, you can revisit Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3.

For this project, you will need:

8 oz
Sachet Beads
2.5 oz
Fragrance Oil

Phase 1: Measure sachet beads, mica and fragrance oil into a glass jar that has a tightly fitting lid.

Phase 2: Cover with a lid and allow to sit for up to 1 week. Agitate several times a day. The beads will eventually absorb the fragrance oil and become dry to the touch. Some fragrances absorb quickly and others require longer to absorb. Be sure to agitate frequently to ensure color and fragrance are distributed uniformly.

Phase 3: When beads have dried, distribute them into our glass jars with daisy cut out lids. A handy safety seal is included to prevent beads from pouring out of the lid in transit. Simply instruct the receiver to shake the beads upon receipt, then remove the seal to enjoy the fragrance!

Note: Avoid allowing the beads to lay directly on any surface as the fragrance and/or mica may damage plastic or upholstered surfaces.

FYI: If you are feeling creative, try combining different colors and/or scents in the same jar.

Allison saw these at a Big Box store where they were retailing between $12-$15/jar. They are simple (and relatively inexpensive) to make!
