Travel Tip: Essential Oils for Travel

I know I’m late to the essential oils game, but over the past few months I have been experimenting with different doTerra essential oils and how to incorporate them into my travel routine. Essential oils can be used in many different ways and two of my favorite ways to use them are as an immunity boost and as a solution for muscle aches. Oil bottles, being tiny in size, are so easy to pack when traveling. I have listed my favorites to have on hand when on the road and how I use them!

I tend to drink more water when I have some type of fruit or herbs in it; however, I can’t imagine anything worse than having a soggy lemon slice floating in my water bottle on a hot day on the golf course. Lemon and grapefruit essential oils have been the perfect solution. The bottle of oils are tiny enough to keep in a small purse, and I put a drop or two in my water bottle for a refreshing boost to my H2O! Both lemon and grapefruit oils are loaded with antioxidants.

Grapefruit

When added to water, grapefruit oil supports a healthy metabolism and is a wonderful detoxifier. A drop or two in a glass of water is a great way to kick off your day!

Lemon

This essential oil naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion. A drop of lemon oil provides a refreshing boost during the day.

On Guard Beadlets

These beadlets are tiny but mighty! Made from a blend of Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and coconut oil, On Guard Beadlets are great as immunity boosters! They can be used to replace hand sanitizer, taken when you feel a sore throat coming on, or used as a breath mint! I always keep these with me, especially when traveling.

Deep Blue Touch

This essential oil blend is a natural alternative to topical analgesics like Icy Hot or BioFreeze. Deep Blue comes in a convenient roller ball bottle and is great for muscle aches and pains after a hard workout or walking the golf course!

Lavender

I love lavender for its calming and relaxing qualities. Diffuse, add a few drops to pillows, or rub on the bottoms of feet to promote a peaceful night’s sleep. When traveling and sleeping in new places, lavender oil really comes in handy! It can also be used to soothe a sunburn.

I am far from being an expert on oils, but I do know that I have benefited greatly from adding them to my travel essentials!

Always finding joy.
