How to make your own Gel DIY Air Fresheners using Kool-Aid
! But instead of using traditional food coloring I am using Kool-Aid mix in this tutorial for a 2 in 1 advantage that adds both color and scent to your Gel Air Fresheners. To intensify the scent and keep a long lasting smell, add essential oils that compliment each Kool-aid pack. Just about every household has some Kool-Aid in the pantry, especially in the warm spring and summer months. It’s affordable and so versatile, see my Cotton Candy DIY Sugar Scrub
that uses a similar process. This is a DIY project you can make together with your children to get them in the kitchen and learn a little lesson in chemistry and science…how gelatin is prepped as a liquid and then turns into a solid when cool. These Gel DIY Air Fresheners can be made for any occasion and makes a great, unique, homemade gift. I made a few from one box of gelatin and my husband keeps his Chocolate Covered Cherry gel air freshener on his desk!

Gel DIY Air Fresheners + Essential Oils
1 Tablespoon Salt
-1 Cup boiling
-1 Cup room temperature
Gather the glass jars you will use. Either re-purpose glass jars or you can make them in Mason Jars.
and Kool-Aid mix
of your choice at the bottom of designated jars.
Bring 1 Cup of Water to a boil in pot. Change to low heat, keep on stove and then dissolve all 4 packets of gelatin in hot water with a whisk. Dissolve completely prior to moving on.
Next add 1 Tablespoon of Salt. Dissolve completely.
Remove from heat and pour in the next 1 Cup of Water, room temperature.
Then place a funnel
into jar and pour in gelatin. Stir the liquid and Kool-Aid mix
to combine and dissolve. (I made 3 Gel Air Fresheners)
Let each jar have time to cool and solidify for about 24hrs.
I didn’t have any issue working with the gelatine, it actually cooled off a lot after adding the 2nd cup of water. My kids were able to safely stir the Kool-aid at the bottom of each jar!
Decorate with Washi Tape and you are done!
They all turned out great and smell really flavorful and delicious, the effect we were going for. I like scents that remind me of sweet treats.
