Traveling to a new destination is exciting, even if sometimes it can also be stressful and tiring! Especially if you are traveling long distances, but the good news? Essential oils are natures tool kit to help you get back to having fun!
Not a day's gone by in the past 6 weeks abroad has gone by without using my oils! It was painstaking deciding what to pack, but now that I've travelled on 15+ flights, boats & trains in all environments from tropical Hawaii, to metropolitan New York, to freezing Iceland and everything in between, I now know my top oil travel pals! Have a watch of my video below for details on my favourite oils to pack.
JET LAG SPRITZ
Our circadian rhythms are trained by our usual environment, including the light-dark cycle of night and day. If you are passing through multiple time zones when flying, it can mess with this internal clock, and cause you to feel drowsy, tired, irritable, and maybe even disoriented, a state many know as jet lag.
To fight jet lag, make sure to stay hydrated during your flight, get enough rest before you travel and get a full night’s sleep afterwards. During the flight essential oils can help you adjust. Here's doTERRA's Revitalizing Spray blend:
8 drops Lavender oil
10 drops Lemon oil
8 drops Eucalyptus oil
5 drops Peppermint oil
5 drops Rosemary oil
As you’re traveling, we know that tiredness isn’t the only thing you may face. On the list are stomach issues, a possibly weakened immune system, and environmental threats. doTERRA also has an answer for each of these problems.
To combat digestive problems, we recommend taking DigestZen® Softgels or DigestTab® with you. Either supplement can help ease digestive upset and get you back on track.
doTERRA On Guard is an excellent blend if you want to boost your immune system, and there are a variety of ways you can take it, from the straight essential oil to a softgel. Check out all the ways here.
