Scentsy Coffee Flower Pens
If you sell Scentsy or other kind of smelly stuff, it’s always nice to have some coffee beans around for your clients to be able to clear their sinuses. The reason is that your scent glands become saturated with these similar scents and you become desensitized. The Scentsy wax activates certain chemical receptors. After a while your scent receptors become so saturated, that they cannot tell the subtle differences between scents. Your sense of smell will tire out and you stop smelling things after a certain amount of time. Coffee beans will fix that. The coffee beans essentially clear up your scent organs by stimulating other chemical receptors. The result is that you feel freshened up and can differentiate between scents.
A fun idea for this is to create flower pens with a coffee bean center. Here are the supplies you will need
- Bic Pens (any pen with a cap, not a click pen)
- Silk Flowers
- Green Floral Tape
- Flower Wire
- Coffee Beans
- Hot Glue & Gun
Pull out the center part of the flower to make room for the coffee beans. Put a few of the coffee beans in a square of netting and then wrap wire around the netting to hold it in place. Keep one end of the wire about 5″ long.
Take the satchel of coffee beans and place in the center of the flower. Feed the remaining wire end that was wrapped around the netting down through the center hole in the flower and wrap it around the stem. Push the stem up into the netting of coffee beans. Use hot glue under the coffee bean satchel and between the flower petal and stem base to make everything extra secure.
Arrange the flowers in the vase. Keep the pens in a gallon size ziplock back until using at the party. You can also put coffee beans, rice, or any other kind of bean in the vase to hold the pens. Now your clients can smell Scentsy, mark their favorite scents, and take a whiff of the coffee beans when they need to clear their sinuses. Plus you look super clever for putting it all together!
