Homemade Air Fresheners

Homemade Air Fresheners

With a crazy dog, a foraging cat, and a sweaty man roaming around the house, there seems to be a variety of smells emanating my living space. Now, I love the coziness of a nice pumpkin-spiced candle, but I have been known to leave a candle burning and...well it makes for an interesting story! These gel scented air fresheners are not only safe, they can be customized with essential oils recipes to create a mood, a purifying effect, or some natural remedies for stress!

How to Make Homemade Air Fresheners


Glass Jars

Essential Oils or Fragrance Oils

Food Coloring Desired

4 envelopes unflavored gelatin

1 Tablespoon of Salt

1 C Boiling Water

1 C Cold Water

Spray bottle w/ alcohol for the air bubbles

Don't forget the salt!----------> (it keeps the jello from molding)

Easy Peasy Directions!

  1. When you're choosing your jar, remember that you're going to have about 2 cups of air freshener. You can divide up your colors and scents however you'd prefer.
  2. In each jar, put 1 or 2 drops of your food coloring and 20-30 drops of aromatherapy oils. I get my essential oils here and add 8-10 drops of my essential oils recipe and that is perfect!
  3. Now start boiling 1 C of water and set aside 1 C of cold water.
  4. When your water is boiling, add the salt and 4 envelopes of unflavored gelatin.(don't open them over the boiling water or it will be hard to pour out)
  5. When the gelatin and salt are dissolved, add the cup of cold water and stir to combine.
  6. Now, just pour your water into each prepared jar stirring gently. There's not a huge rush-you'll have plenty of time!
  7. You may have some air bubbles on the top, simply spritz your homemade air fresheners over the air bubbles and watch them disappear!
  8. Let these sit and harden overnight and Shazam! You've done it again! Another great environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-allergenic, super-cool product for your home!

Air Freshener Spray

I love to spritz! Adding a spritz of homemade air fresheners is a quick and easy way to influence the mood of a room either for more concentration, relaxation or more energy! The vodka acts as an emulsifier enabling the oils to mix with the water. Keep out of the reach of children!

*hint* Use Lavender aromatherapy oils and spray onto your pillow for sweet, restful sleep!

All You Need To Gather

A clean, empty spray bottle

1 1/4 C of Distilled Water

1/8 C unflavored Vodka

Essential Oils or Fragrance Oils

All You Need To Do:

 Mix the vodka & essential oils together.

Pour this into your spray bottle

Add the water and shake it!

Shake before each use.
