What is the best spoil for Dad for Father’s Day (or any day)? We all know that ties, socks and jocks are so “last year.” And the new car Dad has been eyeing is unfortunately out of the question. But thanks to essential oils, you can get him that “new car smell.” But don’t just stop there; you can spoil your dad even further with a kit full of car cleaning essential oils. Now that is going to score you major brownie points, especially if you add a voucher offering to help him wash his car!
Dad’s love their cars, and washing a car has evolved into a specialised male ritual. So, help Dad do the best for his car and let him in on the secret of essential oils for cleaning his car while being eco-conscious at the same time.
Essential oils have not only proven their environmentally-friendly value and versatility for spring cleaning your home, but they are also the ideal solution for cleaning a car.
That New Car Smell
Everyone is in love with essential oil room and linen sprays, so what about an essential oil car spray? Not only will Dad get the satisfaction of natures’ gentle fragrance in his car neutralizing any other odors, but he will also benefit from the calming and relaxing therapeutic benefits that are inherent in organic essential oils.
The majority of car air fresheners comprise synthetic and harmful chemicals as part of their ingredients. A simple natural and non-toxic essential oil car freshener spray can easily be made at home.
For Dad, the more spicy, earthy essential oils are best. In a small glass or plastic spray 4oz bottle, add distilled water, 2T vodka (the odorless and alcohol properties make it the ideal sanitiser for killing germs and for helping the essential oil scent to linger for longer) and 24 drops of essential oil of choice or 8 drops each of a blend of 3 essential oils. (Dad will love the masculine combination of Sweet Orange, Cedarwood and Clove Bud essential oils). But experiment with Patchouli and Cypress - it is the easiest way of bringing the rugged freshness of the outdoors into the car.
And if Dad spends a lot of time in the car, then combining Tea Tree, Oregano and Cinnamon oils in a car spray - with their antiviral and antibacterial properties - will also help to boost his immune system.
Car Cleaning kit
Dad’s car needs a regular wash to keep it looking great. Essential oils are the perfect products to clean any car.
If you want cleaning products that are sustainable, the principle is that if you cannot pronounce the ingredients on the label, then don’t use that product. The same goes for cleaning your car. That is what makes organic essential oils so user-friendly.
