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 of the highest quality. We want to have a relationship with our customers where they can trust us. We want them to feel comfortable trying new products, asking questions and becoming educated in the many uses and powers of essential oils. Part of this relationship comes from the desire that Plant Therapy has to educate our customers on not only the best ways to use essential oils but also the safest ways to use them. And with two certified aromatherapists on staff, we feel like we can do this! When our customers pick up an essential oil, we want them to feel confident in it. We want them to know that they will have success because they know everything they need to about that certain essential oil and what it is best used for. We strive very hard to educate our customers. On our website, under each individual oil, you will find everything you need to know about that oil: the botanical name, chemotype (if applicable), origin of plant, extraction method, suggested uses, safety concerns and much, much more. On our blog you will find suggested uses, safety tips, educational information, DIYs and so much more information! 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.

  3. how long does the scent last?
