5 Essential Oils for Travelers (What You Need to Know)

0 17 June, 2019 - Uncategorized

The thrill of purchasing a ticket to a new country is the starting point of exciting and magical holidays. Whether you’re heading to Rome, Morocco or further afield, travel can create some of our happiest memories. Navigating airports, foreign languages or unknown cities, however, can put a dampener on an otherwise adventurous week away. We want to make sure your only concern is whether you should buy one pain au chocolat or two. Check out our sightseeing secrets for a worry-free holiday.

Peppermint Oil benefits and uses

Jet lag, sore legs, stomach issues—these are just a few things that could plague a fun-filled getaway. That’s why you should carry along both peppy Peppermint essential oil and Peppermint+ oil food supplement for a little extra help along the way. Inhale Peppermint’s refreshing aroma after stepping off the plane for a much-needed pep in your step.

Take Peppermint+ each morning in a veggie capsule or add a drop to your tea to enjoy the boost of refreshing flavour.

Stress Away Essential Oil

It’s possible that travel issues such as missing trains or losing reservations at your hotel can almost ruin the whole experience; or maybe you make it all the way to the airport and realise your passport is still at home on the kitchen table. Not saying that’s happened… Let’s just say some soothing Stress Away would have been much appreciated! Keep this staple in your bag at all times.

Breathe in the inviting aroma when your phone dies and you’re lost on the metro.

DiGize Essential Oil

Travelling is simply an excuse to eat lots of food in a new place. If you’re gorging on churros and paella, empanadas and asado, or spicy curry, you’ll want to rest it off, just sit back and relax with the DiGize Essential Oil blend’s quieting aromas of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise and Patchouli essential oils. It will become your most dependable travel companion.

Trusty Thieves Oil

Recycled oxygen on planes and shared living spaces in hostels can always use some freshening up. Also, you’ll want to give your body extra care to help you enjoy every second of your adventure. For best results, take the dynamic duo of Thieves oil and Thieves+ with you.

Ask the flight attendant for a hot hand towel; add 2–3 drops of Thieves essential oil and wipe down your seat and tray table for a fresh aroma before settling in for the flight.

Add a drop of Thieves+ to your morning tea or coffee at the local cafe for a flavour boost and to support general wellbeing.

Lavender Oil: A Travel Essential

Sometimes the best holidays push us far out of our comfort zones. That could include travelling to the other side of the world, swimming with sharks, or simply landing in a place where you don’t speak the language. That’s no reason for nervous tension or occasional sleeplessness to prevent you from having the time of your life. Keep Lavender essential oil and Lavender+ with you, and you’ll be ready to roll.

Fight the occasional restlessness from time-zone changes by adding Lavender+ to a night-time tea.
