AQ CAR VENT DIFFUSER
Similar in design to our premium Aroma Pendants, our Car Vent Diffusers are a beautiful way to take your essential oils on the road with you - whether to scent your car with your favourite perfume, use oils to energise or concentrate on long drives, anti-germ oils during flu season, or even for oils like Peppermint or Spearmint to help settle travel sickness or nausea - avoid oils that have a sedative effect (eg Lavender, Chamomile). You can also use your favourite perfume, to scent your car just the way you like it. Available in a range of gorgeous designs and finishes, they make a stylish and unobtrusive addition to your car's interior.
Made from durable 316L Surgical Steel with a brilliant shiny silver finish, our car diffusers feature a protective-coated vent fitting that slips over the horizontal slats in your car's air conditioning vent - the diffuser doesn't need to be removed as you use it, preventing wear and tear on your car's interior. A 22.5mm coloured textile pad sits in the recess inside the diffuser: just open the diffuser (some models have a screw on front piece, others have a magnetic closure - see below) and add a few drops of essential oil or an oil blend to the pad. Insert the pad and close the diffuser. In cold weather your heater system will warm the back of the diffuser; in warmer weather the warm temperature inside your car will have the same effect, and the scent of your essential oils will diffuse into the air via the filigree holes in the front design; the vent behind the diffuser will help circulate the diffused oils throughout your car as you drive.
Our Car Vent Diffusers come in a gift box with simple instructions, so make a wonderful gift even for those unfamiliar with aromatherapy - try teaming with a pure Essential Oil Blend to take the guesswork out of which oils work for different purposes. Additional scent pads are available - just choose these from the drop-down menu near the top of the page, before adding them to your cart.

Remove the pad and add a few drops of pure essential oils to the pad, then replace the pad back inside the diffuser. When the scent fades just top up with a few more drops of essential oil as needed; if you'd like to change the scent just change to a new scent pad. A hint of colour can be seen through the filigree holes on the front of the pendant, so you can give a new look to your piece just by changing the pad to a new colour.
Extra scent pads are also available for purchase, in packs of TEN (pre-mixed colours only - sorry, we can't supply specific colours but ensure that each pack contains a mix of different available colours).

316L Surgical Stainless Steel - Premium Quality
As car diffusers and aroma jewellery gain popularity, we are seeing a lot of cheap alloy copies come onto the market. Our Stainless Steel Aromatherapy Diffusers are made from the highest quality 316L Stainless Steel, or Surgical Steel. Surgical Steel is an iron-based alloy made of various elements, including all-important Chromium which is what makes steel rust-proof. Despite the name, Stainless Steel is NOT fully stain-proof, most notably under low oxygen, high salinity (salt), or environments with poor circulation and so may eventually mark if not looked after, but as a general rule Stainless Steel is very mark & corrosion resistant. If your diffuser does get wet or exposed to salt water, was thoroughly and then open the locket and allow to completely dry.

HINTS & TIPS
* Avoid dripping oils directly onto the diffuser as it may eventually corrode the metal. Remove the pad before adding your oils.
* Colourless oils will have a more attractive appearance than darker oils such as Patchouli that may stain the scent pad and be visible through the front of the design.
* Do not allow oils to come in contact with the skin or clothes as they may cause skin sensitivity, or stain fabrics.
* You don't need to put too much oil onto your scent pad - essential oils are very strong so you don't need to use too much.
* Keep out of reach of children and NEVER allow children or pets to chew the diffuser / scent pads as most essential oils are toxic when ingested.
Natural essential oils do dissipate reasonably quickly - this is one of the great things about them, that they don't hang around and leave a 'stale' aroma as synthetic fragrances often do. To help your oils last a little longer try using a blend containing base note oils (eg vetiver, patchouli, frankincense, jasmine etc), which tend to last longer - this will make the top and middle note oils last longer as well. Most simple aromatherapy books will list the 'note' categories that common oils fall into.
You can use your car diffuser for your favourite scented oil or perfume, or you can use your imagination and use therapeutic oil/s to cover anything from:
* concentration oils while driving (see our FOCUS and DRIVE blends)
* oils for fatigue and energy (see our ENERGISE blend)
* calming oils (do not uses sedative oils in a car - for obvious reasons!)
* deodorising oils such as Lemon, Tea Tree, Rosemary, Orange, Eucalyptus or Pine
* oils with anti-viral or anti-nausea benefits (see our COLD & FLU DEFENCE or PROTECT & DISINFECT, or try Peppermint or Spearmint for travel sickness
Use up to four different oils to create your own unique blend, or use one of our PURE ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS to take the guesswork out of which oils to choose. See our LEARN MORE page on Inhalers, Roll-Ons & Jewellery for more instructions and hints.
