Making Sense of your Scents

Every scent has a different level of scent throw depending on the oil composition (though each has the same amount of scent put into it in the production process). In general, a tablespoon of Pink Zebra Sprinkles lasts approximately 40 hours. This variation depends on how long one use is, one hour versus six hours for example. Other factors if the scent seems to not last or be as strong include changes in humidity and weather.

During the colder months of the year (or those days you have the air conditioning on in your house), scent throw (how a scent spreads through a room) is affected by cooler temperatures and dry air. Scent disperses through heat, which is impacted by cold weather. Scent is carried in the air by moisture (water molecules). In the cooler months, the air is dry, leaving less moisture to carry the scent.

Each individual scent is compiled of high notes, middle notes and low notes. When you first put scented Sprinkles into your warmer, the high notes (which smell the strongest) flash off first. As you continue to warm the beads, you smell the middle and low notes. This is also the reason why the melts seem like they do not smell as strong as they did when you first put them into the warmer.

Certain scents smell stronger than others. For example a citrus scent will smell stronger than a musk scent. It is good to keep in mind that each person has a different sense of smell too. A scent may smell stronger to one person than it does to the other. If you are around one scent a lot in your home, you become more immune to the smell and it does not smell as strong to you as it may to the next person.

Lastly, the size of the room that the warmer is in can be a factor as well. If it is in a very large room, or in a room with a ceiling fan or a door that opens to the outside a lot, this can contribute to the scent not smelling as strong. If this is the case with a certain scent, I would suggest transferring it in to a smaller room like your bathroom or office space. Scent throw depends on many factors, especially the type of scent and the usage of your warmer.

Do You Know A Hero?

HEROES stands for Helping, Encouraging, Rewarding & Obtaining Education for Single moms.

One of the reasons I joined Pink Zebra over any other home fragrance companies, was because of the way they give back to the community.  Being a single mom for over 10-years, I understand the struggles that come with day-to-day stress factors which weigh heavily on a single mother.  Pink Zebra offers the HERO program. Supporting single moms by donating days of daycare to these heroes in our society who through their many selfless sacrifices provide their children with love in ways too numerous to count. Pink Zebra helps families in your community to fulfill their dreams of a better life.  The company goal is 1,000,000 days of daycare in 10 years!  If you know a single Mom, please have them apply today for their free day of daycare!

Kick-Off Party a Success!

Yesterday was my kick-off party and it went fabulous! We did have some bad weather but that didn't hold back my scent loving ladies from coming out!  We had great food, yummy drinks, and of course Amazing Pink Zebra Products!  I've posted some pictures, as well as the recipes from my party!

I combined a cash and carry show with the book orders so people who only wanted a couple of jars of sprinkles could buy what they wanted and take it home the same day!

Crockpot Ham N Potatoes

1 bag frozen diced potatoes/hashbrown with peppers
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 bag of sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 package diced ham

Mix all ingredients together and put into crockpot on high for 2 hours or until hot and bubbling.

Cowboy Caviar

2 cans black eyed peas
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
2 cans shoepeg corn
1 can niblet corn 
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 small can diced tomatoes (I get it with jalapenos or peppers to spice it up)
1 - 8 oz bottle zesty Italian salad dressing
1 - 16 oz favorite jar of salsa (I get medium flavor)
1 bunch green onions - chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro - chopped
Franks "Red Hot" Sauce to taste (1/4 cup or so)

Open all cans of beans, corn, and salsa and pour into a large strainer and drain well. (I do beans together, then corn, etc, because otherwise they all don't fit into one strainer). 
After draining, place in large sealable bowl. 
Add chopped green onions and cilantro.
Mix bottle of Zesty Italian dressing.
Add some Franks hot sauce.
Serve cool and best if sits in fridge overnight.
Serve with corn chips or Fritos.

My Favorite Pink Zebra Product

Someone recently asked me what my most favorite product is from Pink Zebra.  This was truly difficult for me because I LOVE many of the scents of sprinkles, (see my previous post on my favorite scents!) I am enamored by the beautiful shades that are easily placed over the base and the fact that I can mix and match both!  But…if I had to choose just one thing, it would be the White Pink Zebra Simmering Lights base.

I love how I only have to use a teaspoon of sprinkles and it bellows wonderful fragrance throughout my house!  I also love the sensual & calming light it provides and if I add a shade, even better!  I can add a light shade to keep the light flowing or a darker shade for a more intimate setting.

The best part economically, is that there is no need to buy many warmers!  With just one warmer, you can purchase beautiful shades to change out the look as often as you like.  You can’t beat the beauty of this versatile warmer for $25!

Can I Use Sprinkles in my existing warmer?

The short answer is Yes!  That being said, there are a lot of different types of warmers out there and Pink Zebra cannot guarantee that the fragrance of Sprinkles will be as potent in ALL warmers as they will be in Pink Zebra Simmering Lights or Simmer Pots.  I personally own 3 warmers that I purchased in the past and in one of them the sprinkles are very fragrant and in another they are not so potent.

I prefer having the ONE Simmering Light and trade out the shade depending upon the mood I'm in, rather than managing 3 separate warmers.  I'm actually going to sell my existing warmers and bars because I don't like them as much as my new sprinkles and simmering light!

The other aspect to this answer is for existing bar and candle lovers.  You can use sprinkles in other ways aside from your warmer that you can't do with bars.  You can make your own candles and give them to people as very affordable and personable gifts that you make yourself.  Additionally, you can add sprinkles to your existing candles.  Many of the store bought candles burn right down the middle and leave a lot of wax left along the sides, with sprinkles you can fill in that gap to resurrect your existing candle.
