Even though traveling brings new experiences, fun, excitement, unforgettable memories and more…it can have its discomforts. I love to travel, but sometimes it can be rough. I also love using essential oils for everyday use or specific ache and pains…etc. I want to share just a few oils I recommend for use while traveling. There are thousands of essential oil retailers out there; I like to use Eden’s Garden through Amazon or their website, and if I cannot find what I need there I will go the pricier rout of Young Living. Eden’s Garden is affordable and good quality.
This oil smells amazing, and is used for its calming and relaxing qualities. It’s great for after spending time in the sun and soothing occasional skin irritations such as burns or bug bites. If you’re traveling somewhere sunny or plan to spend a lot of time outdoors, lavender is a must have.
The Digest Ease blend
The digestive ease blend is a blend of the essential oils Anise Star, Caraway, Coriander, Fennel, Ginger, Peppermint and Tarragon. Together, these oils tackle any digestive upset, so it’s definitely a must have for traveling! When you feel stuffed from eating too much or need to get your system regulated again, this oil blend is the perfect go-to.
The Respiratory Ease Blend
The respiratory ease blend is a blend of the essential oils from Cardamom, Hyssop, Juniper Berry and Rosemary. It’s great for improving respiratory health, opening sinuses, and cleaning the air. The respiratory blend is great to diffuse in the evening to open up airways for a restful night’s sleep.
The Immunity Blend
This immunity blend is wonderful for boosting immunity and protecting yourself while traveling. The protective blend is a blend of the essential oils Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Lemon, Rosemary, Sweet Orange and Tea Tree. When packing for a trip, bring this essential oil blend and an empty glass spray bottle (oils can eat through plastic). Mix 3-5 drops of the blend with water in the spray bottle to use on surfaces, hands and even your throat.
TSA Regulations: Liquids Rule
You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item.
