Homemade Essential Oil Air Fresheners

Kathleen found this 'recipe' on Pinterest(our new addiction)She wanted an air freshener for her closet where the cat litter pan is. We had enough ingredients in the house to make half a batch of this. Next time we will add more of the oil to make a stronger scent. A fun 'recipe' to make!
Homemade Essential Oil Air Fresheners

1 ounce, weight Unsweetened, Unflavored Gelatin (equivalent To 4 Envelopes Of Knox Powdered Gelatin)
2 cups Cold Water, Divided
1 Tablespoon Salt
20 drops To 30 Drops Essential Oil(Kathleen used cinnamon oil)
Food Coloring To Tint The Air Fresheners

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.
