DIY Essential Oil Diffuser for Your Car

DIY Essential Oil Diffuser for the Car

You know those people who are inventive and creative with great imaginations? I am not one of them. At all. So you can imagine how proud I am of this little invention/hack.

We love our EO's. A while back I looked into car diffusers. None had great reviews. We went with the ol' cotton ball method. Lightly saturate a couple and toss them under the seats. Ok, but not ideal. They needed some airflow. I started considering shoving them in the air vents but then imagined them falling in and creating some problem that our terribly unhandy selves would have to pay to be fixed. 

Then - a strike of genius. Ok, not really, but better than the clogged air vent method. And Free!
(If you have an old car air freshener and some cotton balls handy. My Mom, aka Santa, puts them in our stockings)

Also, no toxins! Air fresheners are really horrible for your health, y'all. Even the home ones.

The EO scent surprisingly lasts a while. I guess from the heat of the sun warming the car. For the initial soak I use about six or seven drops. The vent flow really helps to circulate the oils. I only add a few drops every week or so. If you wanted a stronger scent, you'd just re-apply more often. 

Easy peasy. 



  1. I'm just now dabbling into oils! This is a genius idea. I've been using lavender on Mason to help calm him at school and to help him sleep at night. Any tips for lavender oil? Bet places to apply them topically?

  2. This is a great idea! I keep hearing more and more about oils, but have not had any experience with them! I will have to try!

  3. Among the natural oil solutions which offer amazing advantages for your hair include olive oil, argan oil, coconut oil and jojoba oil.Many people are shopping for argan oil for their hair care which should not be a surprise because of the many health benefits it has to provide. Aside from argan oil there are other organic oil products that are suitable for boosting the health and appearance of the hair. scalp health

  4. Diffusers are the best approach to encounter the advantages of fundamental oils and vital oil mixes by means of inward breath. A diffuser aromas the air and is amazing for scenting a space to upgrade mind-set, guide in breath, or take out smells or airborne microbes and infections.
