2. Mix the grated chalk until the color blends completely
3. Add drops of the fragrance oil to the mixture
4. Stir in the baking soda, it will form wet balls but continue to stir and press out the balls until it is blended with the baking soda.
5. You can use a cheese/pepper shaker container that has tiny holes to release the scent to place the ingredients.salt shaker

6. You can also make a paper funnel to pour the ingredients into the containers.
7. Do not fill the containers completely,  so that when the scent fades you can add more drops of fragrance oil to the mixture and it will be much easier to shake or stir.
