Fragrance Business Ideas

Guest Author - Robin Rounds Whittemore

For those interested in getting a fragranced business started, here are some possible ideas for products to sell or make. You can always teach people how to make these items as well in a class setting. Hostess gifts can be very basic for that activity.

Potpourri is always a great craft item to make for any room in the house. The hallway or entryway is a wonderful place to put fragranced potpourri. Anyone who steps into your house will be enveloped into the fragrance immediately.

Candles are usually a welcome gift and welcome in any room of the house. Scented wax pods that can be placed on candle warmers to release scent into the air are gaining in popularity. Reed diffusers and fragrance oils that are placed in pots is another arena to expand into.

Some suggestions for fragranced craft items for the kitchen could include fragranced pot holders that give off fragrance when the heated pot or pan is placed on them. Hand soap with the actual use of coffee and the scent of lemon will help remove many odors from your hands. You can also make fragranced cleaning products. The smell of pine is especially good for this venture.

Bathrooms could always use room fresheners or deodorizers as well as potpourri. If you remember the straw hats that had the crown surrounded with flowers; this would be a perfect way to hide the potpourri. Wrap the potpourri inside cheesecloth and place it inside the crown of the hat. Replace or refresh it every two weeks. The fake or dried flowers can also be spritzed with fragranced liquid to keep the smell going. The liquid is something else you could add to your product offerings.

For personal use in the bathroom, soaps, body lotion, body sprays, shampoo, and conditioners work as well. If you are making the items to sell or to use in classes, the easiest way is to repackage unscented products in your own bottles. This way you get the scent you want, not just what the store has available.

Bedrooms benefit with linen spray, sachets, and room deodorizers. Linen sprays are especially good to help people relax and sleep better. Donít spray too much at once; overkill in scent doesnít do well for relaxation purposes.

Closets are good places to put leftover scented wax from candles or potpourri in small jars with air holes. Spray deodorizers and sachets work as well. Closet doors are usually always kept shut and freshening, fragranced items are indispensable.

Cars are as closed in as closets are. When most cars are parked, there is a degree of heat that the inside temperature reaches; which is why you donít leave pets and children inside cars too long. Leftover scented wax from candles is a good item to use in cars as well. Sachets, deodorizing spray, and even unused scented candles work wonders in cars to improve the smell.
