When my sons were diagnosed with allergies and asthma, I had to throw out all my pretty smelling air fresheners. I learned to make my own using allergy-friendly ingredients you can find in moderately-stocked grocery stores or department stores.
Allergy safe, great smelling, and toxin-free, these air fresheners are simple and inexpensive, too!
Bring one cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the boiling water and whisk until smooth and all the gelatin is dissolved. Add the salt and the second cup of cold water and whisk. Set aside.
Add the desired amount of essential oil and food coloring, if using, to the jar(s). Quickly pour the hot liquid gelatin over the essential oil and food coloring. Stir until evenly colored.
Allow to cool, uncovered on a heat-proof surface. When it reaches room temperature, place wherever you want a lovely scent.
