We’ve all been there: the middle seat of an airplane. No view out the window, no easy access to the aisle, and to make things worse, both fellow travelers have nasty coughs.
Ok, maybe we haven’t had that experience to the T, but middle seat or not, germs are in great abundance in airports and planes. A renowned study found in the Journal of Environmental Health Research informs its readers that chances for catching a cold could increase 100 times in a plane than you would be living your typical lifestyle.
The last thing I want is to feel unwell on a business trip or family vacation!
So, behold: the ultimate list of essential oil travel tips! Actually, to avoid this post being several thousand words long, I will just make it my top 5.
Oil #1: doTERRA On Guard®.
On Guard acts as an immune booster. This is a great one if you’re wanting to travel fear-free. It’s especially great to have on hand when traveling during holidays in the winter when everyone seems to be under the weather.
Oil #2: Melaleuca
It calms minor skin irritations. You never know what your skin will come in contact with when traveling! This oil is a must have when using air-travel.
Oil #3: Peppermint
Another point of focus when you travel is keeping it fresh. Peppermint is practically synonymous with fresh. It can help keep you awake simply by breathing it in, and it can keep you cool by adding a drop to your water or applying it to your feet or back of your neck. It also can work wonders for your breath. Sure is handy to have around, especially when you packed your toothbrush…who knows where?
Oil #4: doTERRA Deep Blue Soothing Blend
After a long day of travel, nothing beats the feeling of a cool and soothing touch from a Deep Blue oil roller bottle. It can relax sore and tense muscles after a long day’s travel.
Oil #5: Lavender
Summer travel, or travel any time of the year means the sun is shining. Lavender is amazing for soothing skin, especially after it has been exposed to some extra sunshine!
