AQ CAR VENT DIFFUSERS
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 cover the scent of s stinky doggo, 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). Available in a range of gorgeous designs and finishes, they make a stylish and unobtrusive addition to your car's interior.
See our AROMA JEWELLERY section for more non-dog-themed designs.
Made from durable Stainless 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 hinged front 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 through the vent holes; in warmer weather the warm temperature inside your car will have a similar effect, and the scent of your essential oils will diffuse into the air via the filigree holes in the front design.
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.

SCENT PADS / REPLACEMENT PADS
Each car vent diffuser comes with three simple absorbent 22.5mm diameter scent pads - one already inserted into the diffuser, plus two extra replacement pads (chosen randomly from a range of bright colours), giving you a choice of three colours for your piece. We're unable to supply a specific colour choice, but we do make sure that there is a nice variation of colours with the three pads provided.
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). Choose '+ EXTRA PADS' from the drop-down OPTIONS menu near the top of the page to purchase a pendant PLUS a spare pack of ten thick scent pads. Or CLICK HERE to purchase 22.5mm scent pads on their own.
NOTE RE SIZE: These diffusers use 22.5mm diameter pads. Other pieces use different sized pads - when ordering additional scent pads always make sure you are ordering the correct size for your pendant type.
Despite the name, Stainless Steel is NOT fully stain-proof, most notably under low oxygen, high salinity, 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. Despite the metal being resistant to rust etc, we recommend avoiding wearing these pendants in the shower / while swimming etc, as it will ruin the scent pad. If your pendant does get wet or exposed to salt water, wash thoroughly and then open the locket and allow to completely dry to ensure the concealed hinges are not damaged.
NOTE RE NICKEL: ALL Surgical Steel contains a very small amount of Nickel - if you are one of the unfortunate few who have an allergy to Nickel you should avoid wearing Stainless Steel jewellery. Be wary of sellers who advertise nickel-free surgical steel - without Nickel, it's not Surgical Steel.

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.
