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 (which isn’t even an oil).
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 ready made 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.
You can use a child’s medicine spoon to measure the the right amount for smaller bottles of fog fluid.

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.

    Fragrance Oils (diluted with fog juice) are perfectly safe for fog machines, but not Essential Oils. Essential Oils will leave buildup in your machine.

    I am making a walk thru crypt this year and would like to know which one of your homemade scents is the most disgusting in your opinion?

      I have never tried these homemade scents. Have you ever tried the Froggy’s Fog scents?

    So does these need to steep even if you are only using one type of oil?
