You can make your own great smelling gel air fresheners,
from scratch. They make great gifts!
For Natural Air Freshener Gel you will need:
- 2 cups of distilled water
- Essential oil / fragrance of your choice.
- 4 packages of Knox gelatin
Heat 1 cup of water almost to a boil. Add the gelatin
and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat add another
cup of distilled water, 10-20 drops of oil / fragrance.
Pour the mixture into clean baby food jars and set at room
temperature overnight until "set". You can place the jars in
the refrigerator if you need them to set more quickly, but be
aware that the smell will permeate the fridge.
For gift giving, you can decorate the baby food jars by
wrapping with material, or gluing on wallpaper, stickers,
wrapping paper, etc.
To use, place the jar on the stovetop (not directly on the
burner!) while cooking, heat in a potpourri burner, or
simply set out on a table and enjoy the aroma.
