I have come to think of my car as just another room in my house.
A study by Harvard Health Watch estimated that most Americans spend over 1 ½ hours a day commuting in their cars. Personally? I think that might be lowballing it, if my family is any indication!
Wanna hear another fun study? A study from MIT discovered that city driving spikes the same amount of stress hormones as skydiving. Ummm, yikes.
So combine a stressful activity, with a tiny itty bitty room you spend way too much time in, and it is not surprising that this could be a recipe for irritation and anger.
Too bad there wasn’t some way of turning your stressful idling time into a relaxing and invigorating aromatherapy session… OH WAIT!!
Meet Invigorate Car Essential Oil Diffuser
Invigorate offers an essential oil diffuser for your car, that features an ultra tiny noiseless fan that heats the oils in the diffuser. With an easy twisting option, you can decide to use as much of the fragrance as you decide.
The unit also lights up and plugs into both USB and into your car’s cigarette lighter. Sometimes higher heat can damage the effectiveness of essential oils; however this is not the case with Invigorates patent pending car diffuser.
Essential oils used in aromatherapy can have wide ranging physical and mental effects on us. While some of them can bring down your stress levels, there are some that can increase your mental alertness and concentration. That means they can not only help you have a pleasant driving experience but can make it safer for you on the road.
The sample pack Invigorate supplied me with came with a Lemongrass essential oil sample, which I just love!
Lemongrass has a strong citrusy smell that is energizing and invigorating, but it also helps bring down anxiety and frustration. It can put you in a better mood when you have to sit through traffic jams. Lemongrass essential oils diffused in offices have been shown to decrease work-related errors by 54%. It may help you avoid errors of judgment while driving too!
Invigorate Car Essential Oil Diffuser – Their Story
Learn a little more about this company, from their About Us section on their page (CLICK HERE to visit):
The leaves are cracking beneath our feet at the time I am writing this. But the truth is the idea for this company came a few years back when my wife started getting migraine headaches from all the years of chemicals that are part of every day life.
From hair-spray to cleaning products, and yes, even car air-fresheners the chemically laden fragrances contained in them were too much for her senses and would trigger horrible migraines that would torture her for days.
I think by now we all realize how toxic our world is, but it’s hard to clean up habits. Slowly and surely we figured out a new path and started replacing these toxic toothpastes, lotions, and fragrances with ones that contained essential oils and natural non-toxic ingredients that were good for us and for the earth.
For decades, there wasn’t yet a product on the market that could effectively deliver what they said they would when it came to car air-fresheners. The diffusers wouldn’t work strong enough or you would have to use a ton of expensive oil and refill the device constantly to get any benefit. The cost too much, and produced too little. In fact, the few on the market, deliver almost no results at all. We obviously couldn’t go with the chemical junk that assaults our senses all day long so we decided maybe we could come up with something that actually worked.
We wanted to create a soothing experience that would enliven the senses and not dull and bombard them.
We took our idea to a talented designer who helped us come up with a prototype that we kept revising until it was just right.
We decided to use essential oils that will not only provide a safe alternative (to the chemical brands out there), but they could also offer health benefits and be therapeutic offering asylum from our crazy world.
With (our multi-patent pending) Invigorate Essential Oil Car diffuser you no longer have to worry about one more assault on your family’s senses or even one more assault on the planet. You have essential oils in your home, and now for the first time, you can effectively use their healing and calming benefits in your own car. It’s time to LIVE CONSISTENTLY.
My Thoughts on the Invigorate Car Diffuser
This little gadget is pretty straight forward! The kit comes with a diffuser, extra wicks, and an oil sample of lemongrass. After putting a couple of drops of essential oil on the wick, I plugged the little bad boy into my Ford Escape, and within minutes my car smelled lemony and wonderful!
I especially like that the diffuser lights up with an unobtrusive blue light to indicate that it is on and working… and that you can control the flow of the scent! The following morning after plugging it in, my hubby thought to oil was too strong, so we just dialed it down a notch. Easy peasy!
I am looking forward to freshening my car with this all natural method, especially now that I have kiddos in tow! Great product, would highly recommend!
