Aren’t these great! They smell so good and I think they are  so cute. I used a large size gelatin to get a texture. I wanted to be able to stir mine when the smell got low. I love the way it turned out. They kind of look like the Crystal Air Fresheners. Nobody would guess that you made these yourself. Plus, they are not full of all of the toxic perfumes!! Your Mothers, and everyone else in their lives, will thank you!!!!

Because we believe in the power of essential oils, and know of their incredible benefits, we want them to be used in as many households as possible. Plant Therapy was founded with one goal in mind... we want to provide the highest quality essential oils (and accessories) at a price that everyone can afford. Plant Therapy provides oils that are 100% pure, undiluted and therapeutic grade. We source each oil from top suppliers around the world, buy in large volume, and negotiate the best prices possible. We then pass those savings on to you, the consumer! When you purchase a bottle of essential oils from Plant Therapy, you are paying for the oil and a very modest profit. We are not a multi-level marketing company. You’re not paying the up-line, you’re not paying for a cruise or a car or a company jet. It is our intent to get our oils in the hands of the people who need them by making them affordable to everyone. You can find more information at under the About Us section.

  2. Will you please post how much gelatin is needed?

    • Sorry about that. I will fix it now. You will need 1 oz. I had a three oz bag and just divided it into thirds. I might have had a little more or a little less than I was supposed to.
