Make a Clothespin Car Diffuser for Essential Oils On-the-Go

One of the easiest essential oils “hacks” is to use a wooden clothespin as a make-shift diffuser in your car.  This idea of utilizing your car air vents to “diffuse” the aroma into the air while you drive is easy, inexpensive, and fun for the family.car Clothespin Diffuser for essential oils DIY | OddsandEvans

What I love about this homemade car diffuser is that you can simply use a drop of oil on a plain, undecorated wooden clothespin.  Technically, this isn’t a cool-mist, awesome air diffuser like you may have in your home, but it does the trick of aromatically infusing a scent while you drive.  Here is a wonderful USB car diffuser you can purchase, (and another travel fan diffuser or one that plugs into lighter outlet)…but in a pinch, this is fun, won’t require refill pads, and is a great conversation piece if you’re driving others!

It’s “triple A” you can use daily:
Adorn your clothespin (or not)
Attach/clip it to your car air vent
Aroma of your choice

…and then just breathe.  We sometimes forget that very important action…

The aroma will not last much longer than a day if using a plain clothespin, however you can attach a small piece of cork on which to drop the oil.  Or craft pom poms, ribbon, felt, and fabric are other creative ideas you can play with that may hold a scent a bit longer.

My son saw me coloring on some clothespins and wanted to join in on the fun.  Kids will love to help decorate with markers, paint, or any accessories of your choosing/availability.   Your children may love to make these as gifts, and you could include a small sample vial of an essential oil for someone (or heck, a whole bottle! There are some excellent oils under $20).Clothespin Diffuser for Essential Oils in the Car On the Go

Clothespin diffusers can also be a great idea to host as a make-and-take class, especially when gathering with parents.  Share and show your oils love with them as the little ones decorate, then everyone gets to take home their craft – and maybe a sample if you choose (The Premium Starter Kit comes with sample vials for you to fill/share).  Simple way to introduce others to the ease and empowerment of essential oils.
