We all love the new car smell, but did you know you can make a DIY car air freshener to bring that new car feeling back

New car smell sprayI agree, I am one of those people that love the smell of a new car. Sitting in my new car for the first time and taking in that moment, there is nothing like it.

The question is, why make your own?

Simply, apart from the toxic chemicals that come in many car fresheners there is also the sickly smell that I find unbearable.

When using essential oils to make your own DIY car air freshener you are avoiding the toxic chemicals and you get a vast choice of flavors to choose from such as peppermint, wild orange or myrrh depending on your taste. I have found two simple techniques to fleshing up your car and make it feel brand new or at least smelling better than it was.

Essential oils new car smell spray

Simply, find a old spray bottle and clean it out, making sure there is no toxic residue still inside or better still buy a new spray bottle from the DIY store.  Fill the bottle with distilled water and five - ten drops of essential oil. You can create a blend or just use one oil, it is your choice. Take a clean cloth and using the spray bottle, spray around the interior of the car and then wipe with the cloth. I have found that using Doterra Lemon essential oil is great as a non toxic cleaning agent as well as a DIY car air freshener.
