Room Sprays

People have used room spray fragrances for a while, and it has been a popular choice for establishing a pleasant aroma in the home. Using a cologne in the home environment can work in various ways. It is able to set the mood in the room, it can prevent unwanted environmental smells, and by making the atmosphere smell great, it can distract from other factors guests may notice.

Fragrances in all forms can become reminiscent of a place, person, or pleasant experience. In comparison to other fragrance options, room sprays only require a few sprays to fill the room with an instant, pleasant, strong scent. It only requires one or two sprays, meaning that a little goes a long way, which makes this a cost-effective method.

People’s fragrance preferences differ from one another and the beauty with the room sprays is that they are so simple to make. This allows many variations of scents to suit individuals' preferences. The 10ml bottles are perfect for having a varied choice and if you decide to sell room sprays, these are perfect to be offered as samples to new customers.

Room Spray Base

There are many ways that room sprays can be made, so why did we choose to use the formulators alcohol and deionised water mix? We carried out research to find the best options possible. We looked at cost, the solution, and most importantly the end fragrance. We contacted various fragrance oil manufacturers and suppliers of the room spray bases and it was recommended that formulators alcohol and deionised water is a good combination to use, and it achieves the greatest results. This base is cost effective, it produces a crystal-clear solution and non-slip. A clear bottle can be used as the mix does not have a cloudy appearance. Additionally, using the formulator’s alcohol as the base, has less chance of clogging the atomiser spray, as the liquid will be less viscous. We have had previous enquiries of if fungus is able to grow in the solution. The answer to this is that if the formulators alcohol content is above 70%, the issue should not occur.

Conversion/Volume

Making the room sprays is simple, the hardest part is working out how many grams of each solution needs to be put together to make a 100ml volume. If anyone requires support with this, we can offer help and advice. However, for all our specially formulated fragrance oils for room sprays or our room spray starter packs, we will dispatch a card that we have had specially designed to help with the correct weights.

Cost

As with all fragrance products, it is necessary that they are cost effective if these are being made to sell. Variations in selling prices of room sprays can be vastly different from £3.50-£8, this range varies due to many factors. People selling at the lower end of the scale may use a much cheaper base. This may result in the quality of the scent not being as good or long lasting. It can depend on who the room sprays are been sold to, where you live, the time of year, how the room sprays are presented and if the room sprays are packaged. What you can be assured with is when the base we provide is mixed with fragrance oils, it is highly fragrant, long-lasting, and is good quality. Therefore, it can be sold at a higher price, considering the above factors.

Looking from a profit margin perspective in comparison to making wax melts, it only takes minutes to make room sprays, whereas for wax melts it would be hours. Highlighting this factor will help the decision of what profit margins are accepted.

To make room spray fragrances the most cost effective, we have introduced specially formulated fragrance oils that only require up to 1% fragrance load. 10g of these fragrance oils will make at least 12 bottles of 100ml of room spray when added to the base. These are unique to SS OILS and have been developed based on specific notes requested by us, along with robust testing to get the fragrances exactly right for our customers.

Due to the unique market of these fragrance oils, when we introduce new scents, we will be offering free room sprays to trial for all orders placed (while stocks last). Furthermore, these oils have been specifically made for room sprays, so we are always open to recommendations of fragrance preferences/notes from our customers.

Cost Calculation

1L Deionised Water (£4.99) is enough to make approx. 64 100ml bottles. This works out just under 8p per 100ml bottle.

1L Formulators Alcohol (£12.50) will make approx. 12 100ml bottles. This works out just over £1 per 100ml bottle.

5L Formulators Alcohol (£43.50) will make approx. 62 100ml bottles. This works out just under 70p per 100ml bottle.

50g of our FO specific for room Sprays will make approx. 62 100ml bottles. This works out at just under 13p per 100ml bottle.

So, by purchasing 5L FA with 1L DW & 50g of our 1% Oils, this will make you approx. 62 100ml bottles, costing around 91p per 100ml bottle for the 2 solutions and the FO.

(This price is not including postage and the bottles; this is purely for a guide on pricing cost of the solution alone.)

Achieving the best results

The importance with the formulator’s alcohol/deionised water base, is that it needs time to bind with the fragrance oil (for at least 48 hours, or longer for a stronger fragrance). The room spray fragrances are very deceiving, as it has a completely different aroma directly from the bottle. Apposed to when it is released from the atomiser spray. The fragrance is strong but as with all fragrances, some are stronger than others. When the room spray has had time to bind, it is important to shake the mix before spraying.

We offer room sprays premade, and we have given them time to bind but when they are received, it is important that they are shaken well before pouring into the atomiser spray bottles.

Keeping it legal

All fragrance oil products require a CLP. For your convenience, templates are provided under each of our premade room spray fragrances. CLP's are a regulatory framework for the classification and labelling of substances and mixtures in the EU. The CLP regulation requires chemicals to be classified for their hazards, and their packaging requires labelling accordingly before being placed on the market. Providing a CLP is a legal requirement, as it is there to identify potential hazards contained in the product that may impact on health and environment.

If you intend on selling products to customers, tactile warning stickers should be added to your product too. Tactile warning labels warn the visually impaired about toxic, corrosive, harmful, and flammable products. They are vital to protect individuals from harm.

Warning Advice

Room sprays are not a cosmetic product, and it is not to be used directly on the skin. We recommend that it to be sprayed in the center of the room away from face and eyes. We would not recommend that it be sprayed directly on furnishings or fabric as this may cause marking or staining. The room sprays contain flammable ingredients, so do not spray near any naked flames or heat sources. It must be kept out of the reach of children or vulnerable adults and should avoid being sprayed around young children, pets, and people with breathing conditions.
