Just choose your favorite essential oil blends or single note essential oils, apply drops to the reuseable pad and plug it into your car’s adaptor.

The Ultrasonic Dual Mist Oil Diffuser and Ultrasonic USB Oil Diffuser from NOW Foods are perfect for the office, because there is no heat or flame involved.

These diffusers are extremely quiet, so you won’t be interrupted during phone calls or meetings. Use them with energizing and focusing scents that smell subtle and won’t overpower a small work space, such as Wyndmere’s Balancing Synergistic Blend, which combines essential oils to help calm the nerves, promote relaxation and bring peace of mind.
