Does anyone else think their own flax seed gel smells pretty funky?

I don't think my flax seeds are bad because they've been in the fridge, but my gel smells...crappy! I mask the "smell" of it by using another gel on top because I'm paranoid of other people smelling this aroma but I really don't need another gel on top

Is there anything around the house that I could add to it to make it smell pleasant? I did buy some preservative from a fellow curly but I still keep the gel in the fridge.
