How much time do you spend during the day in your car?  Whether you are driving to and from work, or chauffering the kids to activities and play dates, driving can become a time of stress.  Often we feel rushed to get where we are going, especially if you are like me and have small children…and never can seem to get out the door in time!

Why not use this time in the car to your advantage?  You might be wearing a diffuser necklace on any given day and already enjoying those aromatherapy benefits.  However, on days where you might not be wearing aromatherapy jewelry, our Car Diffuser just might be the answer.  With your own car diffuser and some creative uses of your essential oils, your vehicle will soon become the place for your own personal aromatherapy session!  Choose from some of our favorite blends below depending on your needs that day.

If you are going to create your own blends for the car, make sure to avoid any essential oils that might make you TOO relaxed or sleepy while driving (lavender or chamomile anyone?).  Essential Oils are very potent, so a little goes a long way, especially in a small space like a car.  Try only 1 drop of each oil in the blends above and see how you feel.  If the scent gets to be a little too much, roll down the windows for some fresh air.

Our Drops of Joy Jewelry Car Diffuser is a Stainless steel locket that comes with three black felt pads for diffusing, and clips easily onto the air vent in your car.  Special vents in the back of this piece allow the scent of the oils to be easily diffused into the air.

It’s time to get rid of those ugly, toxic air fresheners and begin to freshen the air in your car naturally, reduce your stress while driving, and mentally invigorate you for the day ahead with the use of essential oils.  Pick up a Car Diffuser for yourself today!
