How to Make a DIY Car Air Freshener

Air Freshener

If you’re uninspired by the car air freshener aisles of Miamisburg, it’s time to take matters into your own hands. Making a DIY car air freshener is simple and easy, and it’s a great way to breathe new life into your Hyundai. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to use scents like essential oils and herbs to create your very own custom blend to really personalize your cabin. Take a look at some of our favorite recipes below, and start crafting!

DIY Air Freshener: Clay Disc and Essential Oils

An inexpensive clay disc can be found at craft stores around Centerville and online, and the porous surface holds onto any scent you apply. We recommend picking up a few essential oils, and your car will smell wonderful for weeks.

  • Gather one clay disc and your favorite essential oils.
  • Apply a generous amount of essential oil to the clay disc.
  • Give the oil time to soak into the surface of the disc.
  • Place the disc in the car and enjoy your new fragrance.

DIY Air Freshener: Felt and Herbs

If you’re a fan of fresh and botanical scents, go straight to the source and use real herbs to scent your car. We recommend creating a felt sachet, but any scrap fabric will do. When the scent gets weaker, just massage the bag to release more scent.

  • Cut two identical pieces of felt to make a small pouch.
  • Sew the pieces together to create your bag and add the dried herbs of your choice.
  • Sew the top closed and punch a hole in the top.
  • Hang a string through the top to secure the sachet to your mirror or air vent.

DIY Air Freshener: Mason Jar

Want a DIY car air freshener that you can store out of sight? A mason jar air freshener is a great choice. Not only can it help eliminate odors, but you can stash it under a seat or in a spare cup holder.

  • Grab the metal lid and trace it on a piece of cardboard.
  • Cut out the cardboard and poke some holes to allow air in and out.
  • Fill the mason jar halfway with baking soda and add the essential oils of your choice.
  • Put your new cardboard lid on top and secure with the mason jar’s metal ring.
  • Store your new DIY car air freshener and breathe easily.
