DIY Non-Toxic Car Air Freshener

Happy Earth Day Everyone! How could I miss the opportunity to post on earth day? It’s such a fun day to think about all the community Earth Day fairs happening, the awareness campaigns that great non-profits are running and all the arts and crafts happening at schools today! Do you ever wish you still had arts and crafts time? I do. This was my favorite part of elementary school. In the spirit of Earth Day and being nostalgic for arts and crafts I thought I would make a little toxin free car air freshener.



This is a super easy highly customizable DIY craft you can make to brighten up and detoxify your car rides!

What you will need

  1. Wool Felt
  2. Ribbon
  3. Scissors
  4. Favorite essential oil scent. I went with Lemon.  It not only smells great, but also elevates my mood making me happier and more alert. Both great for driving.

I just looked in my craft box and happily found that I had some wool felt but only in gray. I decided to go with what I had, but trust me if I went to the craft store for this project there would be greens and oranges galore!


  1. Cut a fun 3 to 4 inch shape that makes you smile!
  2. Cut a hole in the top large enough for your ribbon to fit through.
  3. Add 5 to 7 drops of your favorite essential oil scent onto the wool. When the smell has run out just add a few more drops.
Here's my abserate earth air freshener. Well I did love arts and crafts as a kid but it looks like my skills haven't progressed since then.

I hope you all had a super fun Earth Day!

  1. I love your Blog Alyson. You have such great ideas and most are so simple. Perhaps the name, SimplyAlyson has something to do with that, lol. Thanks for this wonderful tip. I can’t wait to try this.

    1. Thanks! It took me what felt like forever to find a name for the blog so I’m glad you think it’s a good fit (I think it is too ;) )
