Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • 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.

Notes

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.
