Homemade air Freshner

Valeree Dunbar


These gel air fresheners are the perfect project! They take a total of five minutes to make, are highly economical, and each jar should last you about
a month. Why do I put salt in? Salt helps to keep the gel from molding. Interesting fact isn't it? These would also make great gifts!

How to Make Homemade air Freshner


  1. Into each jar drop only 2 to 3 drops of food coloring.
  2. Put in about 30 drops of essential oil give or take a few, because the more you put in, the stronger the smell.

  4. Quickly pour the hot gelatin mixture into each jar of oil and food coloring and stir each one.
  5. Let these gel overnight and voila, you have air freshener.
