I don't know if this question really fits in here, but I shall ask anyway.

I have one of those air fresheners in the car that go on the air vent. The refills you buy in the shop are all so synthetic and the choice is limited.

I decided I could just as easily make my own using some nice essential oils.

I just wanted to ask a bit of advice, Do you think an oil base or a water base would be more suitable? I was thinking that a water based one may evaporate too quickly.

For spray air fresheners, I've always used a 50% water (preferably distilled) and a 50% alcohol (the roughest cheapest vodka available) base for the oils.

For a car, I understand that you can put cotton wool balls in the vents with oil on them. Never tried it though.

You could see if a local potter/ceramicist can make you a tiny pot (no bigger than the last joint on your finger) that you can hang up. Leave it raw and unglazed. Then put a few drops of oil into it and let them seep out of the terracotta. This works really nicely and looks really attractive too.

For making home made car air freshner would do but an oil based would work better. You can find plenty of tehm at candle and aromatherapy stores to select one for your car.
