JellyGems- A creative way to scent your space

These multi-color tiny spheres are made of a polymer that absorbs, stores, and releases water. They look like glass decorative marbles (gems).

They start out as tiny spheres approximately 2mm and when hydrated grow over 1/2". The hydrated JellyGems can then be scented with your favorite fragrance. They truly make a stunning display.

It's Easy & Fun


Place your dry JellyGems™ in a container.


Add distilled water.


Watch Them Grow


Drain and place the hydrated JellyGems into your container.


Add your favorite fragrance directly to the gems.


Enjoy !

Also, they are colorfast and have a brilliant, bright appearance (polymer has the light-gathering refractive quality of crystal)


How much water do I use?
JellyGems are sold in dry form. Add at least one liter of water per 10 grams of gems and watch them grow. Allow to stand for 4 to 6 hours. Drain off excess water, once fully hydrated they are ready for scenting.

How big are the JellyGems?
When dry, a JellyGem measures about 1/10 inch in diameter (think about the head of a pin). When hydrated to full size, each gem is about 3/8 to 1/2 inch in diameter (more like a marble).

What quantities are JellyGems sold in?
JellyGems are sold dry in the following quantities - 29 gram bottle (approx. 1oz), 227 gram jar (approx. 8oz) and 454 gram container (approx 1 lb).

Are JellyGems safe?
Yes. JellyGems are non-toxic, biodegradable, and environmentally safe. We suggest keeping JellyGems out of reach of children and pets as may present a choking hazard if swallowed.

Will a JellyGems squirt water if squeezed?
No, JellyGems absorb the water and hydrate a special gel like polymer that does not allow water to drip. They will burst but all that you will end up with is JELLO type material on your hands.

What is the life cycle of JellyGems?
JellyGems will slowly lose water through evaporation, it is this evaporation that helps your fragrance do its job. As the evaporation continues the gems will get smaller , If left to dry they will return to the original dry state.

Will JellyGems stain?
No. JellyGems are colorfast. This means that, when the gems dehydrate, the color stays with them. They will not stain other items, nor will they discolor water.

Can I re-use JellyGems?
Absolutely, The re hydration process can be repeated many times. Simply rinse your JellyGems , re hydrate, and scent.

How do I estimate the quantity of dry gems I will need for my project?
Our 29 gram dry bottles will grow through hydration to about 3 liters of product, about 3/4 of a gallon. which should fill about 10 - 8oz jars with fully hydrated JellyGems.

How much fragrance should I use?
Since it is not a product that will be applied to the skin you can use as much as you want depending on how strong you want them and how long you want the fragrance to last. As a rule of thumb, use about 30 to 60 drops of fragrance per 8oz jar of already hydrated gems.

Available Colors



3-D JellyGems are clear with color mixed in them, just like real marbles. All others are solid in color.
