Supplies needed:

Aromatherapy Essential Oils DIY Gel Air Freshener, Makes a Great Gift Idea #DIY, #Essential OilsDirections:

1. Begin by pouring the boiling water into a bowl. Stir in the two packs of gelatin powder and stir until dissolved.
2. Add in the cold water and continue to stir briskly.
3. Pour the mixture into your jars, leaving some room at the top to add your food coloring and scented oil.
4. Add in 5-7 drops of your favorite scented oil or perfume. The amount you add will depend on the size of your jar. Smaller jars will do well with 3-5 drops while larger will need more.
5. Add in 1-3 drops of food coloring in the hue of your choice. Again, the amount you add will depend on the size of your jar and how deep you wish for the color to be.
6. Stir the mixture gently so the oil and color disperses evenly.
7. Place the jar in a refrigerator for 2 hours or until set. Once your air freshener has turned to a solid gel, it is ready to be used. Place in any cool spot (out of the sun) where fragrance is needed.

Ah yes. Simple. I gotta try this. I do wonder if some essential oils are better than others. Where is your favorite spot to buy them?
