Essentially-Scented Gel Air Freshener




This naturally-scented gel air freshener is great for the home, car, office, or just about anywhere. Makes a thoughtful, inexpensive gift.


  1. Dissolve 2 envelopes (2 Tbsp.) unflavored gelatin in 1/2 c. boiling water. (This may take up to 5 minutes).
  2. Add 1/2 c. ice-cold water to gelatin mixture.
  3. Add 10–15 drops essential oils.
  4. Add 3–5 drops food coloring (if desired).
  5. Stir in 1 Tbsp. salt or 10–15 drops of natural grain alcohol, if desired. (The salt or alcohol helps inhibit mold from growing on the gel).
  6. Pour gel mixture into 2 oz. salve containers, 1 oz. salve containers, or used baby food jars.
  7. Close the containers or jars and allow to cool overnight. (Do not place in the fridge because your food will absorb the scent).
  8. Decorate the containers or jars as desired.
  9. To use, open the container, place on a warm stovetop (not burner) while cooking, or simply place on a counter or in a car's cup holder.

Extra Ideas:

  1. Try creating layered gels by filling a jar 1/2 way with one color of gel, allowing that to cool for a couple of hours, and then pouring another color of gel on top.
