Most of the car air fresheners you buy in stores use yucky chemicals to create their scents. I am always trying to cut down on my exposure to chemicals like these because they aren’t very good for your health. I found a great tutorial on making your own car air freshener using essential oils (http://cayenneroom.com/2013/02/06/scent-your-space-naturally-with-homemade-air-fresheners/).
Materials needed for this project include:
- Essential oil of your choice (I chose a nice, calming lavender)
- Felt (luckily, I had some left over scraps from another project)
- String (or in my case, twine)
I started by cutting out heart shapes from the felt. You could cut out any shape you like. The tutorial chose flowers, which looked super cute too.
Then, I added a drop of oil to each felt piece.
Finally, I cut a hole in each heart, threaded the twine through them, and tied it together.
I hung the finished product up in my car and I expect to have a very peaceful “calmmute”. 🙂
