Homemade car air freshener

I haven’t used a car air freshener for a while now, so last week, I bought one that comes in a can and smells like lime. That didn’t bother me in the past, but now, I realized how unnecessarily powerful–and toxic–it smells. So my project for the week is to make my own car air freshener. Nothing elaborate, I might just get some wood shavings, drizzle them with an essential oil (lavender or peppermint would sound good), then pour them inside a pouch with a long string, to be dangled from the rear-view mirror. If it all works out (read: smells wonderful), then I can just wait till the canned scent is all used up before replacing it.

Do you use any homemade air fresheners for your house or your car?
