DIY This Home Fragrance For Diwali Eve !

There are two different methods for making these gel air fresheners, either with water and essential oils or with liquid potpourri. Water and essential oils will give you an all-natural air freshener, and the scent combinations are virtually endless! Liquid potpourri can be purchased next to scented candles, and comes in a few standard scents. They smell great and are fairly inexpensive.



Ingredients:
  • 1 cup water OR 1 cup liquid potpourri 
  • 2 individual envelopes of unflavored gelatin
  • 1 Tbsp. Salt
  • 20 drops of your favorite essential oils (only if using water)
  • Heat-Safe Containers
  • Food Coloring (optional)
  • Silk Flowers (optional)
In a small saucepan on the stove, heat 3/4 cups of water (or liquid potpourri) and the salt. When the salt is completely dissolved, slowly add the gelatin, and stir until that is completely dissolved as well. If you add the gelatin too quickly, it might get a little sticky and “clumpy,” but just keep stirring until it dissolves.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and then add the remaining liquid. Stir until fully blended, and pour the mixture into the containers of your choice.
Now add your essential oils (only if you used water). You can always add more or less essential oils based on your preference, and you can do different oils in each air freshener! Check out a few of my favorite essential oil blends here. I used a combination of Wild Orange and Rosemary oils, and it smelled amazing! I also love using citrus oils like grapefruittangerinelemon, and lime. They smell so clean

.Now it’s time for a bit of decoration if you want to! Some silk flowers and a drop or two of food coloring make them look so fun! Now that your air fresheners are scented, colored and decorated; let them cool to room temperature.
