DIY Gel Air Freshener
1 ounce, weight Unsweetened, Unflavored Gelatin
2 cups Cold Water, Divided
1 Tablespoon Salt
20 drops To 30 Drops Essential Oil
Food Coloring To Tint The Air Fresheners
Begin by bringing one cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the boiling water and whisk until all of the gelatin is dissolved. Add in the salt and the second cup of cold water. Continue whisking.
After these steps set everything aside for a bit. Add the desired amount of the essential oil and food coloring. Quickly pour the hot liquid gelatin over the essential oil and food coloring. Stir until evenly colored. Then allow the mixture to cool uncovered and once it’s room temperature you can set it anywhere for refreshing scent.
This DIY is allergy safe, great smelling and toxin-free. Plus, these air fresheners are simple and inexpensive!
