Smelly Jelly Question

KCCOLLINS1983August 22, 2011


My fiance and I sell handmade incense and candles at local festivals and flea markets. We are considering adding smelly jelly type fresheners to our product line. Our only issue is how to store them for the long term. We do canvas paper type air fresheners and they seem to hold quite well in cello bags. I am just looking for other tried and true methods for possibly sealing the jellies to prevent "leaking" during transport. Also what is the average shelf life others have found to be for their smelly jellies. I found the average to be about three months, but have also found various other time frames. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sorry, I can't really help, but you could try keeping them in a container which may not absorb the scent, like glass, plastic seems to eat up some of the scent for soap. And, soap will lose some of the scent after time, so maybe soap is a different animal in this sense?

The only thing I can think of are small mason jars with "air freshener" lids... I might one day do smelly jellys too so good luck. I hope to learn about your success in this area!
