Homemade Air Freshener – A small batch

More handy crafts =)
Aside from salt, there are no preservatives in this homemade version, giving them a tendency to go bad after a short period of time. But should last approximately a month. Because of that, I only make one at a time with this small-batch version. If you’d like the recipe for more than one air freshener, you can find it at Foodie with Family.

1 packet unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
5 drops of essential oil
1 teaspoon salt
food coloring, to tint the air freshener (optional)
1 heat-proof jar

Add essential oil (and food coloring) to jar, set aside

Boil the water in a small saucepan
sprinkle gelatin over water
let rest for a minute, then stir until the gelatin dissolves
add the salt, and stir again until dissolved

Pour the hot liquid gelatin over the essential oil

Allow to cool and firm up

On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
