I don’t know about you but between flying somewhere hot on winter break and summer road trips I find I’m traveling a lot these days! I’ve also done a lot of research on where germs live on the plane, trains, rental cars and public bathrooms ( Kind of wish I hadn’t read all that) so I’m extra cautious when I’m traveling. Luckily we have access to safe and natural solutions with essential oils that can help us prevent picking up those germs and make our whole traveling experience a pleasant one! Below are the doTERRA oils that I will not travel without- and yes you can take them in your hand luggage on the airplane!
The most necessary oil for travelling is our IMMUNITY BLEND which contains Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. All these oils have been shown to serve as protection against environmental threats making them ideal for travel! Here’s how I use onguard when traveling:
Being a very versatile oil I always keep peppermint in my bag! Below is how I use it for travel:
Known as our tummy tamer oil Digest Zen is made up of Anise, Peppermint, Ginger , Caraway, Coriander, Tarragon, and Fennel essential oils. Ginger, Fennel, and Coriander are known to help ease occasional stomach discomfort, including motion sickness and indigestion. Peppermint, Tarragon, Anise, and Caraway aid with digestion and help maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract. Here’s how I use digest zen:
If you are like me and don’t love getting on planes then Balance may be the solution for you! Balance is a beautiful grounding blend made up of Spruce, Ho Wood Frankincense, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil. These oils have been shown to promote tranquility and relaxation.
Any time we travel our sleep tends to get a little disrupted. Whether it’s because of jet lag or just adjusting to sleeping in different bed our sleep is often affected! One way to help you get the best night sleep possible is to use lavender before bed. I love putting in my bath before bed with epsom salts, adding a drop to my pillow and diffusing it in my travel diffuser. If you are traveling with little ones you can add a drop to their pillow or stuffed animal to ensure they have a great night’s sleep!
Essential oils may travelling so much easier! All these oils come in my favorite starter kit along with my other must haves for every day life (comes with a free diffuser) which you can grab here! Balance doesn’t come in a kit but it’s free for my blog readers when you get the starter kit from me!
