DIY: Air Freshener Gel


- Approx. 30 grams of unflavored gelatin - 500 mls of Water - Desired food coloring

- Salt

- Your selected fragrant or essential oil

- Mixing bowl Begin by pouring the gelatin powder into a mixing bowl. The weight is not crucial so just get it as close as possible. Use whatever packaging is available. add 200 mls of water and bring to a boil. Next stir the 200 mols of boiling water carefully into the gelatin powder until all the gelatin has dissolved. Pour the remainder of the water into the bowl and stir throughly. Next add your selected food coloring , not too much, as it goes a long way.. Allow it to get to room temperature. Add 8-10 drops of fragrant or essential oil into the gel. Place it in the refrigerator for several hours till it looks like firm jelly. Once it has set mash it up so you are left with chunks of fragrance gel , a fork does well. The last step is to pour a small amount of the Gel into the bowl or vase. Keep any unused Gel in an airtight container. Should you want to get really creative, make layers of different colored gel in a tall glass vase. Add 1-2 tbs of Salt to act as a preservative if you are making large batches.
