Liquid Potpourri Scented Jars

I am looking for a project that uses liquid potpourri and Knox Gelatine (I think) to make little scented jars.

Hi,

Just use the liquid potpourri as the liquid in the Knox Gelatin directions. (Follow the directions on the package.) Pour in the container. It will evaporate over time and form a hard piece in the bottom of the jar. Pop it out and mix up another batch. This is a welcome gift to anyone.

Jelly Jar Deodorizers

2 cups liquid potpourri

4 packets knox gelatin (plain unflavored)

Jelly jars, lids and rings

Plastic wrap

Decorations (i.e. lace, ribbons, fabric, etc.)

Bring 1 cup liquid potpourri to boil in a non-reactive saucepan. Do not use your good pans!

Add packets of knox gelatin and stir to dissolve.

Add 1 cup of liquid potpourri that is at room temperature and stir.

Pour into jelly jars, cover with plastic wrap and put into refrigerator to firm.

After they have congealed, add lids, rings and any decorations.

These will last several months when uncapped. Just set in a room and let them do their magic

Try simmering 2 cups of liquid potpourri, then add 2 packets of gelatin, stir until dissolved. Pour into jars, then refrigerate until set!

I bought some liquid potourri and would like to know ho to use it. Do I need any special items like s a crock or burner? If so where do I get them? The dollar store where I got the liquid seemed to not know how to use it.
