Uses For Fragranced Items

Guest Author - Robin Rounds Whittemore

If you are looking for nice, but inexpensive gifts to give, try making your own fragranced items. Most items are easy to make and serve a multitude of purposes. If you shop around for fragranced products, you will see very quickly how making your own can give you a sense of pride and leave money in your bank account at the same time.

For household use there are candles, sachets, potpourri, and air fresheners to make. For the bath, you have assorted bath products, shampoos, soaps, facial masks, face and body scrubs. Other personal use items that can be fragranced include perfumes, cologne, hair sprays, and deodorants. Most make it yourself fragranced items are easy to make and smell luscious.

Gift giving suggestions may include birthdays, thank you gifts, wedding or baby shower gifts or prizes, Holiday gifts, and even gifts for no reason at all. They also make great items to put in a pampering gift basket for that special friend. If you know someone who travels, or maybe for yourself; make up a few items and have them on hand for any last minute trips.

If you are in a home business where you present products for people to purchase, and fragranced items do not conflict with your products; these make wonderful hostess gifts. Smaller versions make wonderful items to give to guests at the parties when they win games, or to thank them for their order.

This also may be a good time to start thinking about a home business. If you decide to try a few recipes and enjoy what you are doing; this could be the start of a new business. It may also give you something to think about adding if you already have a business.

WORDS OF CAUTION: When making bath items, safety always comes first. It has long been known that many home accidents happen in the bathroom. As a matter of precaution, always use non-skid mats or decals in the bathtub. Make sure the bathroom floor is dry and not slippery. Use fabric bath mats when getting in and out of the tub.

If you use vodka in any product, such as perfumes, always make sure to let people know there is vodka in the recipe. Anyone who does not like alcohol, or cannot be around it, should be warned that it is in the product.

With your item, you can even write up a little saying that gives safety or cautionary information with your product. It is so easy to get caught up trying out something new that attention to detail may be ignored or put on hold.
