How to Care for Fresh Scents Sachets

Scented sachets are a great way to add a touch of fragrance to your home, closet, or car. But if you want your sachets to last, you need to care for them properly. Don't worry, it's not as hard as it sounds. Just follow these simple tips, and you’ll be fragrancing your space with sachets like a pro!

Keep them sealed: At Fresh Scents, the paper envelope housing the essential oils is specifically designed to diffuse the fragrance over the nine-month lifespan of the product. The fragrance in a sachet will dissipate more quickly if it's not sealed. So, make sure to keep your sachets sealed in their envelopes to help keep your favorite fragrances locked in!

  • Note: There are ways to treat our sachets as one-time use – for fragrance that packs a serious punch. For example, open the envelope and add the contents to your vacuum compartment or bag. The scent will diffuse as you vacuum! You can also dump the sachet contents in a stovetop pot with water and gently simmer to create a fragrant stovetop potpourri.

Store them in a dry place: Getting an envelope sachet wet is bad because it can damage the fragrance inside. When an envelope sachet gets wet, the essential oils can dissolve in the water and be washed away. This will not only make the sachet smell less strong, but it can also damage the essential oils themselves.

Here are some tips to help you keep your envelope sachets dry:

  • Store them in a dry place, such as a closet or drawer.
  • Avoid placing them in areas where they may get wet or experience humidity or condensation, such as next to a bathtub, shower, or sink.
  • If you do get a sachet wet, dry it out as soon as possible.

Avoid direct sunlight: Direct sunlight can also damage the fragrance in a sachet. Direct sunlight can cause the paper envelope to become brittle and break down, which can release the fragrance prematurely and also make the sachet look unsightly.

The ultraviolet (UV) rays in sunlight can break down the dyes in paper, causing them to fade over time. With gorgeous hand-designed artwork wrapping our sachets – your sachet deserves better than discoloration.

Replace them every 5-9 months: Sachets are a consumable product. And, no, that doesn’t mean you can eat them! Rather, it means from the second the sachets are manufactured, they are actively releasing fragrance. It’s one of the many reasons that people love our sachets! No more lighting a candle, or accidentally leaving on a wax warmer. But this also means, that there isn’t much to be done about the finite (yet, honestly, very long-lasting) lifespan. The fragrance in a sachet will eventually fade. Make sure you are replacing your sachets every 5-9 months, depending on how you’re using the sachet. The stinkier the situation (like your trash can), the more frequently you’ll find yourself replacing your sachets.
