Make Your Own Room Scents!

Wouldn’t it be great if your home could smell like your favourite fragrance? Here a simple way to turn any scent or essence you like into an all-natural long-lasting room scent gel with ingredients most people have at home!

Here’s how to go about it:

1. Grab your favourite scent, essence or flower extract.

You’ll also need a gelatin (1 ounce), a tablespoon of regular salt as well as a nice glass jar to house your scent!

2. Boil a cup of water in a pan. Slowly work gelatin into the boiling water and stir until the gelatin has dissolved and you have a smooth mixture. Put the salt in and then another cup of water. Stir and leave it for a bit.
3. Next, add the desired amount of scent to your glass jar. Careful, you don’t need a massive amount, 20 drops or so should be enough.
(Tip: If you want you can add food colouring at this point to give your scent gel a nice tint, otherwise it might look a bit boring.)
Next, pour the gelatin mixture into the jar and give it a good stir until all the contents have blended.

4. Allow the open jar to cool, uncovered on a heat-proof surface.  When it reaches room temperature, place wherever you want and there you go! This custom room scent should last around 3-4 weeks. This is an all-natural recipe and the salt in the mixture will keep the gelatin from turning but after that time it might get moldy so don’t forget to check!
