I keep hearing from customers and friends that they wish they could just leave my soaps out to scent the rooms in their house. Since I’d rather they continue to use and buy the soap, I’ve come up with an alternative product: Scent Stones. These hard little stones have all the same essential oils as my soaps, but they are much more versatile.
Part of that versatility is the storage. I’m putting a bunch of the little pebbles into 4 oz. ball jars and then using fabric lids to help release the scent without releasing the stones. When they’re up for sale, the lids will be closed, displaying the label information, but once they’re purchased, the customer takes off the flat part of the lid, opening up the smell. They can leave them on their desk at work or put them in a dresser to scent their lingerie. The possibilities are really endless!
At this point, the best prices I’ve found for Ball Quilted Jelly Canning Jar 4 Oz., Case of 12 are on Amazon. I think the quilting gives them a prettier touch than the regular Ball jars, but those little quilted ones are hard to find! Besides, I want people to focus on my logo, not the jar’s logo.
To make the fabric circles perfect, I’ve been using the OLFA 1057028 CMP-3 Rotary Circle Cutter. I am horrible at cutting circles on my own and they never look quite right. At first, I thought I wanted to use pinking shears to make the edges, but I like the look of the perfect circle more than the imperfect circle with pretty edges.

I’ve got one in my own lingerie dresser right now. I want to test to see how long to scent lasts before I put them on the market, but so far, so good! It’s been in there for almost a month and the smell is still going strong. Getting dressed is a lot sexier now (which is funny because normally getting undressed is the sexy part)!
