Carefully dropped 10 to 20 drops of your chosen oil on each side of the cardboard. Remember the rule to combine essential oils: the same number of drops for each aroma. Leave to dry.

If you do not know what essence is best for your car, you can go for a fruity scent such as orange, a classic aroma such as peppermint or a more exotic one like grapefruit.

Punch a hole in the top of the air freshener. Pass the string through and tie a knot and you're done!

Now you can leave the air freshener hanging from the rear-view mirror of your car. When you feel it no longer freshens the car, it's time for a few more drops of essential oil, so top it up!
