Unlocking the Power of Essential Oils for Travel

Do you have a family vacation or weekend getaway planned? If so, grab your packing list and double check you’ve got essential oils penciled in, because this is one item you don’t want to leave home without!


Traveling is usually an exciting time to explore new things and visit loved ones, so don’t let jet lag, sore muscles, occasional stomach discomfort, or stuffy hotel rooms get in the way of enjoying your traveling adventures. Make sure you pack the best essential oils for traveling that can support digestive health when ingested.* provide cleansing properties, support your sleep routine, and bring you peace of mind knowing that you’ve got the right tools to deal with any unexpected traveling issues.


Essential Oils: Your Travel Companion

If you’re traveling this summer, think of essential oils as your number one traveling companion. Essential oils like DigestZen® will be there to support your overall digestive health* (think unfamiliar food causing digestive issues), while Adaptiv® create a relaxing, comforting environment when you’re traveling or in an unfamiliar city..


Essential oils are great for addressing the unique challenges of summer travel. Lightweight, easy to pack, and with a variety of application methods, essential oils are a must-have on any vacation. Follow these simple packing and application tips to get the most out of your essential oils while traveling.


Traveling By Plane

Because essential oils are small in size, they are the perfect size to pack snugly in your purse or carry-on. Each traveler is allowed one clear quart-sized plastic bag for liquids, and you can store and transport them this way when going through security, so just pack the essentials on board with you. There is no limit to the oils you can bring in your checked luggage, but make sure you seal them in plastic bags to protect against spills. And while you can’t use a diffuser onboard the airplane, you can put a drop of oil on your fingertip and touch the top of your ceiling air vent and you’ll have your own personal diffuser! If you are rubbing them on your skin, make sure to apply them before you board, or apply a small amount to a tissue or a terracotta pendant which you can use to inhale the scent while in flight.


Traveling By Car

Keep a small kit of your most used oils in a small padded case and store them in your glove compartment. You can also dab oils onto cotton balls and place them in your air vents for an on-the-go personal diffuser. Or dab a drop of oil in your palm, put your hands over your nose, and breathe deeply for a quick burst of energy.
