For a fun change to a DIY class night, give it a car theme. Not only will this appeal to both men and women, it shows people the everyday uses for essential oils that they may not have already thought of. Here are some ideas for some pretty inexpensive DIYs that you can make in a short amount of time, along with their instructions for use.
- Add 4 ounces of vinegar to a glass spray bottle along with 3 drops of Lemon essential oil. When it comes time to use it, shake well and spray onto windows, allowing it to sit for a few minutes before wiping with a piece of dry newspaper for a streak-free shine.
- Combine 1 cup olive oil and 5 drops Lemon in a glass spray bottle or bowl. Use a clean cloth to wipe a small amount of the mixture into your dashboard and any other plastic or vinyl surfaces. Wipe off excess with another cleaning rag.

- To form a paste, mix 1 part white vinegar, 2 parts baking soda, and 2-6 drops of Purify, Lemon, Lavender, Melalueca, or Wild Orange. Work the paste into any stain using a toothbrush. Allow the paste to dry and then vacuum the stain away. For a stubborn stain, this process may need to be done more than once.
- Trace out a pattern (we like the drop pattern) onto wool felt or cut a pattern freehand. Punch a hole at the top. Thread through it a piece of twine and tie it into a loop to hang from your rearview mirror. Put several drops of your favorite essential oil onto the wool for an all-natural air freshener.
