They are super easy, and you can customize to your favorite scent WITHOUT adding the harmful chemicals you don’t want. Just follow the recipe below and store in the room of your choice.

15-20 Drops of Essential Oil— Choose the oil you like most. Everyone tends to like a different scent, but Eucalyptus Essential Oil & Vanilla Essential Oil are popular room scents. Around the holidays, you can get creative with a Peppermint Essential Oil or a Pine Oil.

2 cups of Water

Food Coloring (Optional)

4 packages of Gelatin (Plain)

Glass Jars

2 teaspoons of Salt


Boil 1 cup of water in a non-stick pan. Once boiling, remove from heat and add Essential Oil. 15 drops will give you a healthy scent, but if you are sensitive to smells, add less. You would also add food coloring at this point if you want the final product to look a certain color. Skip this step if you are planning on hiding the freshener.

Pour gelatin into the water and stir until dissolved. Add two teaspoons of salt to prevent mold.
