Salvia Small Talk: Infusing Your Car with Sage
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 a 2010 issue of Mother Earth Living. One blend Miller suggests combines a bit of crushed sage leaves with citrus peels. We think Sacred White Sage (Salvia apiana) or Elk Sonoran Red Pineapple Sage (Salvia elegans 'Elk Sonoran Red') would do a fine job of overcoming eau de dog, essence of fast food trash, or other problematic aromas lurking in your car.
