Default Flaxseed gel questions

Hello!!
2b hair here. (I think normal-low porous)
Long, medium hair.

I've made a few batches of the flaxseed gel, and am really wanting to like it.
I've made with just flaxseeds and water.
That Didn't seem to be enough hold (I'll try my devacurl gel overtop next time)

This weekend i made a batch with
4Tbsp flaxseed
2 cups water
1tsp aloe vera gel
1tsp agave
Gelatin
Crunchy hold.....i Think i might like. Not really sure yet. Still want to play around with recipe and products.
Can you list your exact recipe you use?

I keep it in refrigerator. And pull out in the mornings. My main questions are this...
Can i keep the gel out all night in the bathroom and put back in refrigerator after I'm done in the early morning?
Or could I freeze it in small amounts and put the frozen container in the bathroom at night to slowly defrost?
With both questions, will the
product turn rancid if left
un-refrigerated???

Thanks for all your help!!

I'd use a preservative, but that's just me (and I do.) My FSG turned rancid after 3/4 days. That's when I could smell it. I'm sure those microbes start way before!

What would do you use as a preservative?

I have potassium sorbate, optiphen, tinosan and one that starts with a g, whose name escapes me.
