VERY EASY ** I have these in 4 different seasonal scents, so I can switch them out. Some of mine are 5 years old, and still fine! You can always "refresh" with more fragrance oil ~ and add more distilled water as needed. *
Tie whatever you want around them for a seasonal look (or not) ~ and they even make great gifts **
** NOT EDIBLE **
Homemade Room Air Freshener
Water polymer crystals
Concentrated fragrance oil (1/2 oz per jar you’re making)
Canning jars (8 oz. or 16 oz) ~ I like 16 oz. size best
Ribbon, raffia to decorate (optional)
You can buy the crystals and fragrance oil VERY CHEAP on eBay or Webstore (about $4 or less for a big bag of crystals ~ fragrance oil is $1-$4 per oz). Just search SMELLY JELLY CRYSTALSand FRAGRANCE OIL. It can probably be found at a craft store too. The canning jars and distilled water can be bought at the grocery store. If you can find jars with a perforated design in the top, they work best ~ but plain tops work well too.
Put about 1 heaping TB (8oz. jar) or 2 heaping TB (16oz. jar) of the crystals into your jar. Add 1/2 oz. fragrance oil and 1-2 drops of food coloring. Fill about 3/4 full with distilled water (regular water may cause the crystals to mold after awhile). Screw lid back on tightly and let it sit, until the crystals expand and fill the jar (add a touch more water if needed then). Tie a decorative ribbon or raffia around the jar. Unscrew the lid and set the jar wherever you want a subtle scent in your room. As the water evaporates, just refill with more distilled water ~ each jar can last for years this way!
WONDERFUL in bathrooms, hallways, closets, or on a bedside table.
Choose scents for each season. I have Apple Blossom and Jasmine for Spring ~ Mandarin Orange/Mango and Coconut for Summer ~ Apple Cinnamon for Fall ~ Pine for Winter ~ but choose what you like best!
GREAT GIFTS! ……… This product is NOT EDIBLE
