My Fresh Journey: Crafting Freshies Car Air Fresheners from Passion to Business Success

My Fresh Journey: Crafting Freshies Car Air Fresheners from Passion to Business Success


In April 2023, I embarked on a journey that would change my life in ways I could have never imagined. What started as a small, creative project has evolved into a thriving business that has consumed all of my free time, and I couldn't be happier. I'd like to take you on a ride through my journey of making Freshies car air fresheners, from its humble beginnings to where we are today.

The Beginning

My adventure into the world of Freshies car air fresheners began with a simple idea: to create unique, visually appealing car air fresheners that would bring a touch of personality to every vehicle. I've always had a passion for picking out images, providing people with options, and experimenting with different fragrances. Little did I know that this hobby would soon turn into a full-fledged business.

Watching the Growth

As the months went by, I poured my heart and soul into my Freshies venture. I carefully curated designs and selected fragrances that would resonate with a wide range of customers. The most rewarding part of this journey has been watching the company grow organically. We've now surpassed 200+ orders through my website, a milestone that still amazes me.

Repeat Customers and Rave Reviews

The satisfaction of our customers has been the driving force behind our success. It's incredibly heartwarming to see customers coming back for more and leaving us with glowing reviews. These repeat customers have not only become our biggest supporters but also our friends. Their loyalty and enthusiasm fuel our passion for what we do.

Connecting with the Community

One of the most exciting aspects of this journey has been connecting with our local community. People are not only finding us online but also attending our upcoming events to meet us in person. The opportunity to engage with our customers face-to-face and share our passion with them is truly exhilarating.

Expanding into Boutiques

I am thrilled to share that we have expanded our presence beyond our online store. Freshies car air fresheners can now be found in five boutiques, four in Maryland and one in Virginia. This expansion has opened up new doors for us and introduced our products to a wider audience.

A Family Affair

My journey with Freshies has been a true family affair. Nick, my fiancé, has been an invaluable part of this venture, helping match every Freshie with the perfect bow and bead for the Freshies hanger. My two boys have also played their part, assisting with sales and tackling those tedious tasks like packaging Freshies. It warms my heart to see my family working together towards a shared goal, fulfilling yet another dream of mine.


My journey of making Freshies car air fresheners has been nothing short of remarkable. It's a testament to the power of following your passion and putting in the hard work to see it through. From crafting unique designs to experimenting with fragrances, from our first order to expanding into boutiques, every step of this journey has been incredibly rewarding. With the support of my family and the love of our customers, I look forward to what the future holds for Freshies – a journey that's not only mine but also a story of a passionate family coming together to create something special.
