Tired of Your Place Smelling Like Stale Pot? This DIY Air Freshener Works Miracles!
Just because you love the taste of weed doesn’t mean you’ll love how it makes your home smell, or whatever area you’re using as a smoke spot. It’s the same concept as if you were to walk into a cigarette smoker’s home, that residual scent lingers and grows stale leaving a pretty unpleasant aroma. Usually to combat things like that you’d end up buying some type of air freshener or candle, but what if I told you that it was much easier just to make your own? Going that route is not only much cheaper in the long run, but it can also give you more control over which scents you want to use!
Sweet, What Will I Need?
If you want to make your own homemade air freshener then you’ll need to know what all you’ve got to work with, right? These are the ingredients for a homemade jelly air freshener, you know, the good kind!
- Canning jars for the actual fragrant jelly, these can be used as decoration so choose what works best for your tastes!
- A can opener
- 1 cup of water
- 2 packets of unflavored gelatin
- Any essential oil or fragrance you would like to use
- 1 teaspoon of salt
This recipe creates two large are fresheners, but you can also divvy it up for multiple, smaller jars as well.
So you’ve got your ingredients and you’re ready to get started, but first there’s something you need to do first — poke even holes around the lids of the jars. The best ones to use for these would be the glass ones you can purchase from the store, as they generally come in bulk and they’re not bad looking for decoration either!
- Take a half a cup of water and bring it to a boil, set the other half-cup aside.
- Sprinkle the gelatin packets into the water and stir until there is no remaining clumps.
- Add in your salt as well as the remaining water and mix until it’s formed the same consistency throughout the mixture.
- Turn off the heat and grab your jars!
- In the bottom of each you’ll want to throw in a couple drops of your chosen oils/fragrances. For a bit of reference, if you were only making two you would want to put in around 15 drops.
- If you want these to be different colors, now’s the time to drop in some food coloring!
- Pour the gelatin into the jars and mix them up well for an even distribution of the fragrance!
- Allow it to cool and place it where you want it!
NOTE: You have a bit of creative control over how much fragrance you put into these, so don’t worry about “screwing it up”! Remember, there can always be a next time to try out something a little different until you find the perfect fit for you.
All in all, these won’t take you long to make, are non-toxic and will make any room you put them in smell fantastic — I can attest to that from personal experience!
