These are easy to make, and a great way to put some scents into places like office spaces and cars! Note: I don’t recommend keeping these in your car in the summer months, especially if you live somewhere as crazy hot as San Antonio, TX 🙂
1 T Unflavored Gelatin (approx. 1 packet)
1/2 T (1 1/2 tsp) Salt (this helps prevent mold from growing on the gelatin)
1/4 cup Boiling Water
1/4 cup Ice Water
2 2oz Salve Containers
Dissolve 1 Tbs of unflavored gelatin in 1/4 cup of boiling water (this may take up to 5 minutes).
Add 1/4 cup of ice-cold water to the gelatin mixture.
Stir in 1/2 Tbs of salt
Add 3 drops of essential oil to each container
Pour the gel mixture into 2 oz. salve containers and stir.
If you want both to be the same scent then you can mix the oils with the gelatin in the mixing bowl. I did two different scents so it was easier to do it this way!
Close the containers or jars, and allow to cool overnight (do not place in the fridge because your food will absorb the scent).
To use these gel air fresheners, open the container, place on a warm stovetop (not on the burner) while cooking, or simply place the open container on the counter or a shelf inside your home or in a cup-holder inside your car.
