Clean and Fresh Essential Oil Car Diffuser

Summer is here which means sun, sand, sweat and… stink! Let’s face it, we have all encountered bad body odor in our lifetime, especially us mommies. We are constantly around kids who sweat like there is no tomorrow, and it is not like they care about how they smell. We love them nonetheless, but summer just means twice the sun, twice the sweat, and sometimes it can stink up the car.

Well, I’ve got you covered! Beat the summer car stink with our all-natural Essential Oil Car Diffuser Recipe!
