    Default Homemade Fog Scents

    Homemade Fog Scents
    These make great secret reaper gifts!

    I started testing some custom scents. I read everything I could regarding essential oils, and fragrances oils.
    After testing the safety of the fog vapors on both the eyes and mouth, as well as the safety of using it in a fogger; I have come to
    the conclusion that it works just as good as the commercial stuff, and is safe. I experimented mixing fragrance oils together for my
    custom fog scents. The price is a little bit less vs buying commercial scents, plus it's more fun to make them yourself! This isn't a
    tutorial, so much as it is a recipe guide. As with all fog scents; the fogger should be flushed with fog cleaner or distilled water-vinegar
    when putting it back into storage. When making custom fog scents, wear rubber gloves, if you don't...your hands will STINK!


    These scents are concentrated and should be added to aprox 4 gallons worth of fog fluid depending on scent.
    If you like to make homemade fog juice, add the fragrance oil mixture to the glycerin before mixing it with the distilled water.
    You can use a child's medicine spoon to measure the the right amount for bottles of commerical fog fluid. Shake the bottle well!


    Conversion Guide:
    6 tsp = 1.0 oz of fog scent (2-3 gallons)
    3 tsp = .5 oz of fog scent (1 gallon)
    1.5 tsp = .2 oz of fog scent (half gallon)
    .5 tsp = .1 oz of fog scent (1 quart)



    Here are the recipes:
    each fragrance oil bottle/vial is .5 oz
    some recipes require 1 oz
    (do not use essential oils)

    Directions:Mix together in glass mason jar.
    Close with lid, let scents mellow for 2 weeks.
    Then open it up and add it to the fog fluid.
    Each fragrance makes approx. 4 gallons worth of fog.
    Use a measuring spoon for smaller fog fluid sizes.

    Well, I never knew you could scent your fog! Your scent recipes look like they would smell fantastic! I bet you won't find those scents commercially! I have to try this . . .

    I found a lady on eBay who is selling those Wellington scents, Granny's Country Store, with free shipping -- what fun . . . I chose potting soil, campfire, cedar and spanish moss!! That sounds like a creepy combination for a cemetery scene . . . .

    Here are the scent descriptions:
    Spanish Moss: Think of warm summer nights, thick with the woodsy green scent of Spanish Moss; a damp, earthy scent with a touch of southern mystery
    Cedar: The age-old favorite sharp, sweet wood and a touch of spice, with the reassuring scent of that antique cedar chest.
    Campfire: This smoky wood scent will send you back to summer nights around the bonfire, warm and inviting with a hint of the outdoors.
    Potting soil: This dirt has the aroma of rich potting soil.

    thanks for experimenting with these. I know alot of us are interested in it but hesitate at the costs from commercial. A plus is the skys the limit on what scent you choose. Any candy smell gets my vote, if I can get candycorn Im set!

    I forgot to tell you all that you can also purchase: candy corn, pumpkin, and candy apple too!

    Make sure you use Fragrance oils and not Essential oils.

    If anyone is wanting to make the Vampyre scent
    you can purchase the black cherry fragrance at Dollar Tree.
    Vampyre and Swamp are my too favorite fog scents!

    Oh and the recipes I posted where specifically designed to use the least amount of fragrance oil.
    So you should be able to make at least 2 seperate scents for your fog.

    This is such a great thread! I can't WAIT to see what scents everyone comes up with -- I was checking out the other fog scent threads and someone mentioned that you might not want to use these indoors, unless you want your house or garage smelling creepy for quite a while . . . the scent gets into everything and it's hard to get rid of!

    I love the GAS scent idea -- nasty!!

    This is incredible, it will add so much to the scenes! I assume you just drop in there with the fog juice, or do you try to mix it first?

    I checked out that Granny's country store, great tip there as well. I am doing a forest and want a woodsy smell. Saw they have a fresh mowed hay as well.

    Thanks again, great tip

    Be careful with using Granny's Country store, their scents aren't always accurate. I've tried a few! Be sure to ask if they are essential oils or fragrance oils...you want Fragrance oils. I provided two webstores that have all of the scents you'll need in the first post. Granny's does stock a lot of Wellingtons fragrances though.

    To answer your question Brimston3, you mix the fragrance up in the mason jar, and then using a baby medicine measure spoon or similar medicine measureing tool, add the appropriate amount to your fog fluid.
