How to Make Smelly Jelly  

Materials needed:Water Crystals

  • Water Crystals
  • Container
  • Distilled Water
  • Fragrance Oil
  • Food Coloring



Basic Instructions:

  1. Pour 6 ounces of distilled water into a measuring cup.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of water crystals.
  3. Add 1 - 2 teaspoons of fragrance.  (The fragrance will be stronger if you the maximum amount.)
  4. Add a few drops of food coloring for the desired color.  Mix in a little at a time to make sure the color is satisfactory.
  5. Let the mixture stand for a few hours to allow the crystals to absorb the water, fragrance and dye.  The crystals will swell to many times their original size.
  6. Fill containers with the smelly jelly mixture.

Other Helpful Tips:

  • Make larger batches to save time.  Increase the quantities to make enough to fill 5, 10 or even 20 jars at one time. 
  • Use a two piece lid and replace the center with cloth, netting or lace.  This allows the fragrance to escape, but gives a different look to the container.
  • Smelly jellies can be used in a potpourri warmer for a stronger scent dispersion.
  • The mixture can be refreshed by adding 1 - 2 teaspoons of distilled water and a few drops of fragrance after a few weeks.
  • Be creative and have fun!
