12 Days of Christmas Crafting: Revisited
Day 5: The Aromatic Commute: Choosing Scents for Car Diffusers
By Christi R. Pugh
For Nature’s Gift, Inc.

Day 5 for another “easy” gift selection.  We’ll delve more into the harder stuff in the coming days, I promise.  But we aren’t all “craftsy” and some of us simply don’t have the time for creating, yet we want to share our love of the oils with our friends and families. 

Creating and learning about the oils can be fun, though, while we keep safety in mind.  Diffusing oils in the car seems easy enough.  However, there are some caveats, for safety purposes.  For instance, never use any of the “relaxing” oils while driving.  These include but are not limited to: Lavender, Chamomile, Sweet Marjoram, Mandarin, Sandalwood, and Frankincense.  More stimulating oils suitable for diffusing on car rides, particularly for those with longer commutes, include: Peppermint, Spearmint, Rosemary, Pink Grapefruit, Basil, and Lemon.  We do offer several uplifting blends/synergies: Focus, FogcutterCitrus Smile and Fresh Aire.  Any or all of these are appropriate for diffusing in the car.

How do you diffuse essential oils in the car?  We offer the Car Scenter which plugs into the cell
phone charger/lighter outlet in newer and older model cars. 

The Car Scenter comes with refill pads which are simply doused with a few drops of oil and inserted inside the diffusers. 

If your car is equiped with a USB port (for an Iphone or IPad) you may use our new "Aroma2Go" USB Diffuser.

For gifting, a diffuser with a small bottle of oil or a few well chosen samples is a quick and easy selection sure to be loved by the recipient. 

Save 20% on the Car Scenter diffusers, Focus, Fogcutter, Fresh Aire or Citrus Smile Synergies, from now through October 29th by entering the code craft5 online at checkout.

I have both items (have had the car one for years and love it!) and just recently bought the new computer one. They are fantastic for when you need to relax for a long drive, or a long day at the computer. And I have lots of replacement pads or bottles and fill them with different oils, depending on the mood I wish to create. These would make fabulous Christmas gifts!
