Materials needed to do this project are quite simple: scissors, yarn or twine (even a paper clip for hanging), felt, glue, diffuser pad, and essential oils.

Travel with Essential Oils

The approach to making the travel diffuser is equally as easy. Cut your felt into your desired shape, choose an essential oil, add a few drop of essential oil to the Diffuser Pad, glue with hot glue gun or your preferred glue, make a hole to slip yard, twine, or a paperclip through to hang appropriately in your car or other home away from home.
