DIY Gel Air Freshener

Author Wendy Polisi


  • Small Glass Jars  I used 7 ounce jars
  • 3 cups water divided
  • ¼ cup unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons Sea Salt
  • Essential Oils 
  • Food Coloring optional


  • Place 1 cup of water in a small bowl.
  • Add gelatin and let soften.
  • Meanwhile, bring 2 cups of water to a simmer. Stir in salt and allow to dissolve.
  • Reduce heat to low and stir in gelatin mixture.
  • Remove from heat and whisk until combined.
  • Place 60 drops of essential oils to each jar.  Add 6 food coloring if desired.
  • Stir each jar to evenly disperse oils and food coloring.
  • Lightly cover, and transfer to the refrigerator until solid. (You may also let them sit at room temperature to get solid, but I found they were much more firm when I used the refrigerator.)
