Essential oils have become a huge part of my everyday life. It’s easy to replace so many things with an essential oil and I feel good doing it. The Young Living essential oils have changed the way I think of chemicals, medication, and more, so it’s natural to want to talk about it with everyone. We’ve been traveling a lot lately. With a lot of weekend getaways, I have a standard list of things to pack. This past weekend I realized I couldn’t possibly leave on a trip without some of the best essential oils for travel. Because traveling can throw us into so many different environments, but packing space can be limited, I narrowed it down to my top 6 essential oils for travel.
If you’re not familiar with Young Living, then the very best thing for you to do is get started with a Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 11 essential oils, a diffuser, Thieves cleaner sample, Ningxia samples, and everything you need to dive into the essential oil world. It can be intimidating at first, but I’m happy to help in every way possible! Purchase the Premium Starter Kit here and let’s start changing your life!
Top 6 Essential Oils for Travel
I don’t necessarily like to “rank” my essential oils, but Stress Away is absolutely one of the must-have essential oils for travel. We all know traveling can be extremely stressful. Whether it’s delayed flights, poor traveling conditions, or just the fear of getting from point A to point B, it can be stressful. The Stress Away roll-on is perfect for every type of travel out there, whether it’s car, train, boat, plane, whatever.
There was a recent week that I felt like I was wearing it as an everyday perfume because one, I was that stressed and two, it actually works really well for me. I roll the Stress Away on behind my ears, on the back of my neck, and onto my wrists. The peppermint in the essential oil blend is also helpful with head tension or just giving that good-feel energy boost.
I usually put it on about 30 minutes before traveling and then I keep it in my purse throughout the trip. I love rolling it on my wrists when I just need a quick breather in the middle of the day. Coming from a girl who’s nerves (gotta stay FDA compliant with my words) have continued to increase every year of my adult life, this is definitely one of the best essential oils for travel.Stay stress-free during your next trip with Young Living's Stress Away essential oil!Click To Tweet
Everyone. Needs. Thieves. When I travel, I bring the small spray bottle, my hand sanitizer, and the Thieves Vitality essential oil. The plant-based ingredients are naturally derived and help keep me healthy in so many different ways. The Thieves spray is my favorite on the plane. I spray the armchairs, tables, and seatbelt. Call me crazy, but I even bring it with me to the bathroom. Before eating, I always use the waterless Thieves hand purifier.
The Thieves Vitality oil supports my immune system, keeping me healthy throughout my travels. With all the different environments and germs, it’s easy to catch something (just ask my friend that got off a week-long cruise with a horrible cold). It can be added to any morning juice, coffee, or tea. The sweet and spicy flavor is the perfect essential oil for a regular wellness regimen. I know you’ll fall in love with the entire Thieves cleaning line with Young Living.
Speaking of health, I’m the first to admit my diet is a lot different on vacay than it is when I’m at home. I drink too much, eat all the carbs, and probably request the dessert menu more than once. I have a pretty sensitive stomach sometimes, but DiGize has helped me so much!
DiGize Vitality blends Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli. When we were recently in Lucerne, Switzerland, my stomach was feeling so upset. I know it was from over-indulgence, not enough water, and foods that my body isn’t familiar with on a daily basis. I added two drops of DiGize to hot water after our meal and it was a lifesaver. It can also be added in a capsule and taken orally on a daily basis as part of a regular wellness regimen. Having it with me is just a stress-reliever knowing that it’ll calm my stomach if needed.
If you read my very first essential oil post about the Young Living Premium Starter Kit, then you know lavender is one of my all-time favorite oils. It’s the oil that convinced me to start trying more essential oils. The versatility of lavender essential oil makes it such a great travel companion. The fresh, floral, and calming scent comes with me so I can continue my evening routine while on vacation. I rub the lavender on the bottom of my feet to set the stage for a restful atmosphere, leaving me refreshed the next morning.
Again, if you’re new to the essential oil world, start off with lavender. You’ll find yourself using it in so many different ways.
If your travels are extra busy or you’re squeezing in workouts in between pina coladas, Deep Relief roll-on will be your best friend. I keep it in my bag at all times when I need a refreshing pick-me-up. The mix of Peppermint and Wintergreen provide the cooling sensation that makes me feel ready to take on the day, anywhere in the world.
It can be rolled onto the back of your neck or behind the ears. A quick roll onto your temples or chest will also give you the recharge you’re looking for in the middle of all the fun you have on vacation!
Your Favorite Essential Oil
At the end of the day, essential oils are a personal part of your life. You might find yourself drawn to a certain oil throughout different seasons of life and that means something! I’ve also heard if you don’t like the smell of an essential oil, you probably need it in your life more than you know. So when you’re packing up for your travels, don’t forget the one oil that you’re drawn to right now.
Lately, Valor has been giving me a daily positive boost. I love the way it smells and the good energy that follows. It’s a unique blend of Black Spruce, Blue Tansy, Camphor Wood, Geranium, and Frankincense and I’m obsessed with diffusing it or using my roller first thing in the morning.
