Orange Spice Gel Air Freshener

Stephanie Pollard
This essential oil gel air freshener uses a surprising ingredient to help freshen your house for weeks. You'll want to make one for every room!



  • In a small bowl, combine water absorbing crystals with water. Stir the crystals to keep them from the sticking together, then let sit for 30 minutes.
  • Add essential oils and stir again. Transfer to a jar.
  • Place around the house or tie with twine, herbs and dried fruit and give as gifts.


If the scent begins to fade, add more essential oils and give the mixture a stir.
Over time, the water may begin to evaporate as well. Simply add water 1 teaspoon at a time to rehydrate the crystals. 
After a few months, toss out the crystals and make a fresh batch.
