      According to ttp://www.nrdc.org/health/home/airfresheners/airfresheners.pdf , many store bought plug-in air freshners contain phthalates that can cause hormonal abnormalities, birth defects and reproductive problems and VOC which is a cancer causing agent harmful to both people and pets. This is a welcome alternative. Thank-you.

      DIY air fresheners - I just made these for the first time, and it was super simple! I used pint sized Mason jars, and they worked perfectly. I also used fragrance (Hawaiian Rain, ooh!) instead of essential oil because I had some left over from a previous project. 30 drops turned out to be about one ear dropper filled with fragrance. Also, I didn't use food coloring since I'm using these in my closets, but I guess if you're using them in more visible area, the coloring might be more desirable.

      Home made air freshners Into each jar, drop a few drops (I repeat...a few...it doesn't take more than 2 or 3) of food coloring. Then, put in about 30 drops of essential oil, give or take. The more essential oil you put in, the stronger the smell. Now for the fun part. Gather up 4 envelopes of unflavored gelatin, a tablespoon of salt, and 2 cups of cold water. Why salt? Salt (or vodka) apparently help to keep the gel from molding. Interesting fact, isn't it?!? Get one cup of water boiling on the stove. When it begins to boil, whisk in the gelatin, stirring until it's all dissolved. Then, pour in the other cup of cold water and the salt, stirring until the salt is dissolved. Quickly pour the hot gelatin mixture in each of your jars, and then use a disposable stick or spoon to stir it into the oil and food coloring. Let these gel overnight, and then voila! Air freshener! —
