Handmade Air Fresheners

homemade air freshners

Last night I made these cute little things. I’ve spent forever trying to find a natural air freshener for my car but was repeatedly disappointed with what I found. Many “natural” products had nasty ingredients hidden in them and USB oil diffusers broke easily and were only contributing to landfill due to continual replacement. So I decided to make my own which cost me a total of $3 to make 6!
I bought some sheets of felt from the junk shop, printed off a heart at home to use as a template and stitched them together with yarn I already had (leaving a gap at the top). Once finished, I popped a cotton wool ball in each, which I first soaked in fractionated coconut oil to hold the scent, and dropped in 10 drops of essential oils. Voila! Cheap, easy and effective air fresheners. This would be a great activity for the kids too.
My first one has been soaked in May Chang, what’s your favourite oil?

Peace, love and health,
