Clothes Pin “Diffuser”

Okay, your car is not technically part of your home, but you likely spend a lot of time there, plus this one can be clipped to a fan or vent as well as your car’s vent.

Many of today’s car scent products are laden with toxic chemicals. This is a very easy, inexpensive option for you.


Just take a wooden clothes pin and add 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oils along the length. (For safety, please read this post; for ideas on scents, you can check out this post.)

I found that it works best if you put the oils on right before you leave, so they are fresh. It gives a nice, subtle scent to your car.

*Edit*
Since I have written this, I have seen an idea I would like to try….gluing small pom-poms along the length of the clothes pin to put the oils on.

Either way, it is an easy-peasy idea to cut out synthetic scents.
