What are your best travel tips? One of my favorite tips is to add essential oils to my packing list. Here are a few ways I use oils to make traveling a great experience.
1. DigestZen Digestive Blend can be your best friend. Travel can cause digestive upset and this little blend is magic! It soothes and calms and helps things get back to normal. If you are out and about, an easy way to use is to put a drop on the back of your hand and lick it off. It tastes like black licorice and mint but has Fennel, Peppermint, Ginger, and some other great digestion supporting oils.
2. Do your feet swell when you travel? Help maintain good circulation by using a AromaTouch Massage Blend. It contains Cypress, Marjoram, Peppermint, Grapefruit, and Lavender. Massage a drop onto the bottom of your feet before a long car or airplane ride.
3. Mini spray bottles. I like to bring a set of 4 mini spray bottles with me when flying. I make Peppermint spray for cooling, uplifting, and refreshing. On Guard Protective Blend (Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary) spray to spritz in your mouth as an immunity boost and to clean surfaces. Lavender spray to calm and ease tension. I love spritzing it on hotel sheets and linens. Lemon spray for mood lift, sticky surfaces, and room refresher. I add a drop or two in each bottle and fill the rest of the way with water.
4. Bringing a travel diffuser to a hotel room has become a necessity for me. I love the comforting and homey feeling. It also purifies the air and makes for a healthier stay. I usually use Wild Orange or other citrus when arriving.
If you don't have a diffuser, try adding a few drops of essential oil to tissues and putting them on the room air conditioner unit to diffuse the scent.
5. Staying hydrated is important when traveling. I like to bring an empty glass water bottle with me through security, then fill it on the other side. I love adding a drop of Lemon to my water. You can even add the drop to the bottom of the empty water bottle before you go. If you are traveling by car, most gas stations and rest stops have free water and you can avoid the temptation to buy sugary drinks.
