Default I need four Guinea pigs (not the literal ones)

Ok,
My wife has made freshies for cars for a couple of years now but this year……she’s trying something new. For this to work I want to get four people from across Texas to try them out and see if they help. (Or spook the deer/pigs)

She’s making “dirt discs” in various camo and in these scents: cedar, campfire smoke and dirt.

Throw the disc in your clothes bag, hang it in your truck or wherever you think you’d want it.

There’s a version of this same thing by scent a way but for me, those never last. Emily’s freshies last for months in enclosed spaces. (I have had fresh linen in my sock drawer for like a year)

Obviously, they may not work because a deers nose is smart but that’s why I’m asking for a few volunteers.

Anyone want to try them out? First four people will get several dirt discs to try for free. Shipping included. No strings attached just report your thoughts back to me.

Alright, I got my Guinea pigs y’all!! Everyone above this post make sure to send your mailing address so I can send the discs to you.

Fingers crossed they help us all fill the freezers this year!

Make sure and circle back with the results. I have used the other ones you talked about (H.S. Scents).and they are marginal at best. Would love to see how yours work + always buy local if possible (local = geography & the GS)

Absolutely will do. When she thought about this today I just couldn’t believe it hadn’t crossed my mind before. Now that it has, and I can help my fellow hunters I’m super excited to help make them! Figured I’d do some Sitka camo, realtree, mossy oak and a couple other patterns.

We have a bunch of molds to use this on (deer, beer bottles, whiskey bottles, trucks, jeeps, even bull testicles lol) but for now she wants to keep it simple and just use the circles.

She’s been looking for that oil but most of what she finds is like “Christmas tree”. Our concern is it’ll smell like a spruce than a pine but she’s on it lol. She’s looking.

Lol not yet but pm me and I’ll send you one or two when she makes them. She usually sells the regular ones for $5 a circle. She’s made it into two convenience stores and sells across the country. When she thought of this option I thought about how brilliant the idea was lol.

For y’all that are my trial group, I finally got the first oils in today. Campfire smells great but cedar…..I’m not sure about. She’s going to start soaking the beads for a test batch, sometimes the oil smells weird but after the beads are cooked, the fragrance smells like it should. She is still waiting on dirt and I found a pine and ordered it tonight. I’ll keep y’all posted on when everything is ready to be sent out!

First set out of the oven. They made the whole house smell like fresh turned earth and Emily is not happy LOL.

She also said the campfire smell makes her think of snuff. Guess we will have to see what the deer think.

Finished and ready to ship Tuesday when the post office opens. The cedar oil She got did not smell like cedar to me so I opted to use the pine scent she just got in. Dang pine smells so good I’m using it everywhere lol.

I've got some skunk cover scent in liquid bottle I'll donate. But don't know about putting it in the oven, or if it'd hold up. Your other might be more than upset.



I've had it on hand for about 30 years. I've used it on folks who have given me a hard time at work. Just a tiny drop in their welding hood, and they think about me for days.

Oh we already went down the road of “maybe we should use doe estrus or buck tarsal gland” but it was quickly shot down lol.

No way I’d bake a dish in the same oven afterwords not to mention how the house would smell.

Just went to get the mail and saw a package from Magnolia. It had quite the odor and was a bit confused about what friend would send me random smelly stuff. Then I opened it!

At first sniff the dirt and smoke seem spot on. The line smells great but I’m going to have to go smell a pine tree to compare.

Thanks a bunch! I’ll let you know how it all turns out.
