I’ve never been one to like to use air fresheners. I have always been concerned about what they put in them to make that smell. Anyway, I came across this recipe on Little House on the Prairie Living that I just had to try.
Years ago, I purchased a gel air freshener kit. I don’t have any idea where I got it from – must have been on sale – but I never made them. When I moved here I threw out the ingredients, but kept the little jars. Aren’t they cute?
I took Merissa’s recipe and cut it in half. I only wanted to make one jar to try it out. It’s so easy!
I used one of my favorite fragrance oil which smells like coffee and chocolate. Yum!
It gelled up pretty quickly and it’s now sitting here in my woman cave. It smells so good, but not overpowering.
I’ll definitely make more. Let’s see one for the bathroom, one for the cat room….
Thanks to Merissa for her recipe.
I’m totally going to make some of these. Thanks so much!!

I can’t believe this!! I was just this morning going thru my files, and I came across my old recipe for this. In my notes, it says that you can use liquid potpourri instead of water and essential oil.

The Gel Air Freshener is really a good idea and I think I can make my own with this instructions you have…Thank you!

Great idea! I have the ingredients and jelly jars, but not the fancy lids. I’m thinking I could use tulle and tie on with raffia instead. Thanks for passing on the recipe!

Wow, that sounds so easy! Do you think it would work with citrus scents? They usually don’t last so long, but I love them…

Kristina, I don’t know why it wouldn’t work. The original recipe called for essential oils but the fragrance oils work just as well so don’t know why citrus wouldn’t work.
Charlie, Love the idea of using tulle and raffia. Cute! Thanks for dropping by.
Cheziannhe, Very easy. Thanks for dropping by.
Trece, Don’t know about liquid potpourri and don’t ever have any of that around, but sure sounds like it would work.
You mean that’s all it takes to make gel air freshner? I’ll definitely make this one. Thanks for sharing!
That looks lovely! Doesn’t look like much of work either!
How long would these be shelf stable? For storage if I made quite a few at a time?
Heather, I really don’t remember how long it was good for. I only made that once back then. I do have a link to the blog where I got the recipe. You might ask her about it. Sorry I’m no help.
