The scent of citrus is like walking into a clean room — even if it's a total mess. This DIY is so simple with really unique results. The gel looks so neat in mini mason jars, and you can even cap them and give as a gift.

What You'll Need:

  • Zest of one lemon
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 packets unflavored gelatin
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Mason jars


  1. Place the zest of one lemon in a small saucepan along with the water and unflavored gelatin. Bring to a boil and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and add 5 drops of yellow food coloring.
  2. Carefully pour into mason jars and let set overnight. The gel is packed with lemon scent while looking so cool.
