Gel Air Freshener Very simple to make and very, very cheap! Perfect for bathrooms or closets. Will last around a month. The instructions for this will depend on the type of gelatin or pectin you use. What you'll need: plain, unflavored gelatin or pectin water for preparing gelatin food coloring (optional, just for added flair) essential oils small glass jars or bowls (I filled three with 2 cups of finished gelatin) 1 tablespoon salt (prevents mold) To make this, place 1-2 drops of food coloring in each of your glass jars or bowls, and then prepare the gelatin according to the package directions, adding the salt during boiling. Check the strength of the smell at this time and add more oil if necessary. This will firm up at room temperature, but if you want it to set quicker you can place it in the fridge. I've got two of these in my closet right now, as well as one in the bathroom.
