McKenna’s Homemade Air Fresheners for Fall! Lasts for a month!

Ingredients/Supplies:

  • Knox Gelatin

         can be found in Kroger in the JELLO and Gelatin isle

  • 1/2 or 1 pint Mason Jar

        in this example I used a 1 pint jar, can be found at Michael’s craft supply store

  • Food Coloring

I mixed red and yellow to make mine orange for fall colors! 

  • Decorations to go inside

        I used some leaves, twigs and berries for mine

  • Essential Oil

        Can be found in the candle-making isle of Michael’s Craft Supply store for around three dollars. I used one cinnamon vile and half of an apple spice vile in one jar.

  • 1/2 a cup of Boiling water

This doesn’t have to be exact. Half of a 1 pint mason jar is about a cup. So 1/4 of the jar is 1/2 a cup.

  • 1/2 a cup of Ice Water
This doesn’t have to be exact. Half of a 1 pint mason jar is about a cup. So 1/4 of the jar is 1/2 a cup.
  • Spoon

            Instructions for 1 jar:

  • Bring water to a low boil
  • Fill jar 1/4 of the way up with boiling water
  • Put two packets of Knox Gelatin into the jar filled with water, then stir until mostly dissolved.

             Knox comes with four packets. You’ll need two for one jar.

  • Add essential oils and food coloring, stir until well mixed
  • Add ice water (but not the ice!) stir until well mixed
  • Complete with decorations inside mixture.

             You can use glitter, leaves, cinnamon sticks, berries, etc.

Leave in a cool dry place overnight out of sunlight for cooling. NOT IN REFRIGERATOR.

You can replace airtight lid after leaving the air-freshener out overnight if it becomes overwhelming. It will eventually dry out without the lid on. This air freshener lasts for around a month. It makes the room smell great and it’s a nice decoration! :) Happy Fall!
