•The smelly jellies do contract as water evaporates,
however, due to the structure of the surface area
available, water evaporation time is drastically
reduced, allowing the scent throw to last.
Not so long ago, in 1988, Dan Wofford, Jr. formulated and
dispersed information detailing how to make Smelly Jellies.
Within a few years, the Smelly Jelly procedure was given to
the masses. This action resulted with people starting home
businesses making Smelly Jelly products. These were sold in
the masses at flea markets, trade shows, and fairs. The
sensation of Smelly Jellies quickly caught on and several US
and Japanese companies began producing Smelly Jellies for
purchase via the internet and in a multitude of hobby & craft
(A great flameless scenting option- perfect for cars, offices, and dorms.)
Here is the recipe for an 8 ounce jar of scented smelly jellies.
1. Take 1 level teaspoon smelly jelly crystals and add into jar.
2. Add 7 oz. warm distilled water to the jar.
3. Add a few drops of liquid soap dye (color of your choice) to the
4. Add approximately 1 tablespoon of fragrance oil (scent of your
choice) to the jar.
6. Allow the mixture to swell for about 15 minutes. Total
absorption of liquid may take up to 2 hours.
You can also add 1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol, which will act as a
preservative, to prevent mold.

1. Measure out the size of the mat you would like for your dog.
2. Cut out two pieces of fabric (natural cotton works best), one for the top and one for the
3. Sew together three sides of the material. You will want to double stitch this for
4. Turn the piece inside out.
5. Using a sewing machine, sew parallel tubes around 1 ½ inches wide (made out of the
material) starting from the finished edge to the open edge.
6. Turn the piece right side out.
7. Place 1 teaspoon of Smelly Jellies per foot (length) of each tube.
8. Close the fourth edge of material by folding the pieces together. Make sure the ends of
the tubes are closed off when sewing.
9. Soak finished mat in water for around 2 hours. This will allow for full absorption of the
Smelly Jellies and optimum coolness for your pet!
If your mat is going to be large, we suggest stitching across the tubes in the center of the
mat. This will make two tubes out of each one, but don't forget to put the Smelly Jellies in
the first half of the tubes before sewing down the middle. Follow with putting Smelly
Jellies in the second half as well before closing.
(These collars are a great way to stay cool and rid headaches)
1. Using a bandana, fold over the wide edge about an inch or two.
2. Sew the hem down to create a material tube.
3. Place a teaspoon of Smelly Jellies into the tube. You will want to make sure that the
jellies are sitting on the bottom of the tube. You do not want the jellies to prevent
4. Stitch across the top of tube about 3 inches from the unfinished end. This will enclose
the Jellies in the center of the tube.
5. Sew the fourth edge of the tube closed.
6. Soak up to 2 hours for full absorption.
We find that using a velcro fastener at the end of the collar makes for easy use.
Keep hung in a well ventilated area. This will help prevent mildew. You may also
place your collar in a zip-lock bag and store in the refrigerator. This will keep
the cool-tie hydrated for months.
