Do you want to change the fragrance of your car? So you have two options: the first is to go to the supermarket to buy a chemical air freshener, and the second is to choose your favorite perfumes and create a car air freshener yourself.
This second option is much more natural and personalized since you can choose your favorite aroma and create your car’s ideal setting. In this article, we detail step by step how to make a car air freshener. Do you dare to try it?
The materials you need to make a car air freshener are:
- Non-toxic glue suitable for paper and cardboard
- Hole punch or similar tool for making a hole
- Ribbon, thread, cord; or a rubber band
- Essential oil or a fragrance blend of oils of your choice
- A pipette or dropper (optional)
- Marker or something to draw
The main materials can be recycled, use an old cardboard box and an old aunt’s dress. If you want. The typical design includes the shape of pine or tree. Any design you would like to do is fine. Draw just the outline of the shape on a sheet of paper

Once we have made the drawing of what our air freshener will be, we will have to cut out the template and then place it on the fabric to cut two fabric pieces.
The next step is to give consistency to the homemade air freshener for the car, and, for this, we will have to place the template on the cardboard and cut a piece of cardboard.
Next, you will have to glue the fabric to each side of the cardboard and let it dry.
Carefully drip 10-20 drops of your chosen oil onto each side of the flavoring. Remember the rule for combining essential oils: the same number of drops for each scent. Let it dry.

Poke a hole in the top of the flavoring. Pass the ribbon over there and tie a knot. Hang the air freshener on the rearview mirror of your car. When you feel like it’s no longer scenting your car, it’s time for a few more drops of essential oil.
