Farmer’s Market Help for Bath and Body Vendors 7


As I stated yesterday, I love to look for crafty things at the local Gardner’s Market. I’ve noticed that some of the vendors have tester cream jars of every scent in just one style of cream! This method takes up a lot of space and uses quite a bit of product. You don’t want people opening every jar of cream just to smell the fragrance. This is where I can help you allow people to smell the fragrances without getting lotion or cream all over their noses and making a mess of your booth.

Collect needed supplies:
Petroleum Wax
Sheep Sachet Cards
Coconut Oil Fractions
Fragrance of your choice (I’m going to use Freesia Fragrance Oil)
Scale
Microwave safe container with large bottom for sheep
Spoon

Recipe:
85 grams of Petroleum Wax
85 grams of Coconut Oil Fractions
1 fluid ounce of Freesia Fragrance Oil

Weigh wax and Coconut Oil Fractions into the microwave safe container. Microwave in short bursts until the wax is melted. You will need to stir the oil to help the wax melt. At this point, you can add the fragrance oil. You may need to reheat the mixture briefly. Once the mixture is completely melted, you can start dipping your sachet card sheep. Quickly dip the sheep into the mixture and pull out. You don’t want the sheep to be waxy and if you leave the sheep in the mixture too long, it will absorb too much wax and then be very waxy. You can also get waxy sheep when the mixture has cooled too much. Simply reheat and continue dipping sheep.

Now you have excellent scent sample cards or hanging car air fresheners! Isn’t that so much more better than people opening creams you don’t want opened at your booth?

Want some sheep cards? Request them in the comments of your order. We’ll include them as long as supplies last. 🙂

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
