Salvia Small Talk: Infusing Your Car with Sage

Salvia Small Talk: Infusing Your Car with Sage

Posted on

Synopsis: Make your own deodorizer for your car with a tea infuser and herbs, such as salvia.
Throw away that cardboard air freshener dangling from your auto's rear-view mirror. Replace it with a tea infuser filled with crushed herbs and other pleasant smelling, natural ingredients.

We got this clever idea from Taylor Miller in Mother Earth Living. One blend Miller suggests combines a bit of crushed sage leaves with citrus peels. We think Sacred White Sage (Salvia apiana) would do a fine job of overcoming eau de dog, essence of fast food trash or other problematic aromas lurking in your car.
