Traveling With Essential Oils

When we travel we are getting out of our comfort zones and we never know what will come up. I just traveled to 5 European countries with my family, at first, I thought I was horribly over prepared but to my surprise, I was not and I am so thankful that I had all of these oils.  I used almost everything in the picture below. I am going to share with you what I brought with me and how we used everything.

Supplements

Life Long Vitality Pack: I can not live without these they are my daily fuel. You can learn more about them here.

TerraZyme: When traveling we tend to eat a lot of food that we don’t usually eat and that can make us feel full or simply sick to our stomachs. I took 2 TerraZyme with every meal, daily.

Serenity Soft Gels: These helped me to relax at night so I could try to get some rest even though jetlag really took over.

Mito Max: I used these to help keep me from constantly drinking too much espresso to keep me awake when jet lag hit in the afternoons.

Zen Gest Soft Gels: I took one soft gel to help digest heavy meals especially at night.

On Guard Soft Gels: I took one every morning with my first meal of the day to help keep my immune system strong.

Tri-Ease Soft Gels: I needed these more when I came back to Japan rather than on the journey but I was happy to have them in case hayfever set in overseas.

doTERRA Toothpaste: Because it is the best toothpaste I have ever used in my life and it goes everywhere with me.

Deep Blue Rub: I used this with Hinoki or Cypress oil on my legs for circulation and on my feet after a long day of walking.

Oils

Arborvitae: To help me clear the air in all the different hotel rooms we stayed in, it also helped me relax when I used it in my diffuser with Frankincense.

Orange: Uplifting and the kids love it.

Peppermint: I use it to freshen my breath and in my diffuser with Orange to wake me up.

Whisper: Because I like to wear it.

Juniper Berry: I would randomly smell this oil just to help relax me.

Eucalyptus: To help open up nasal passages, especially when feeling run down with all the travels.

Easy Air: This oil helps wake me and up, and it relaxes me when I feel anxiety creep in from time to time and helps clear sinus issues. I like to add a few drops to my diffuser with 3 drops of Hinoki.

Cypress: I used this a ton for circulation

AromaTouch: Perfect for a shoulder and neck massage after a long day of travels.

Frankincense: Because I never leave home without it. I use it for tons of things but my favorite was in a diffuser blend next to my bed. 2 drops of Frankincense, 2 drops of Siberian Fir and 2 drops of Copaiba.

Zen Gest: Roller bottle and the 15ml bottle. I used the roller bottle that is already diluted on the kid’s tummy when they were having stomach issues and I used the undiluted for me I take a drop under my tongue.

Deep Blue Oil: I used this on my feet and neck after long days of walking in big cities.

Sandalwood: In my diffuser several nights to help relax me. I also put a drop on my 3rd eye, between my eyebrows.

Wind Rhythm: A great pick me up or I rub some on my hands and rub my hands in my hair.

Copaiba: I use this oil often to help settle me when feeling overwhelmed. I put a drop on the back of my neck and the bottoms of my feet. I also love to diffuse it with Frankincense and Siberian Fir as mentioned above. I will also put a drop under my tongue when I am feeling nervous.

Marjoram: I use this oil over my heart and on my abdomen, it also helps to settle me when I feel restless or overwhelmed. I like to apply it before bed.

Douglas Fir: This is an oil that just makes me happy all.the.time. and I need to have it where ever I go.

Cheer: Worked great in the diffuser in the mornings. I would run it through the diffuser while down at breakfast in the hotel and when we returned to the room it was such a cheerful scent. Helped get everyone in a good mood for the next destinations travel adventures.

Bergamot: This is another oil that I just like to smell or put behind my ears for confidence.

Grapefruit: A few drops in the shower every morning to help wake me up and curb my appetite so I don’t overeat at breakfast.

Smart & Sassy: To help me not eat everything in sight while in Europe. One drop on my fingertip and I would just lick my finger.

Lemongrass: In case the hotel room had a strange smell this oil would help neutralize things.

Hinoki: I did not have much left of this oil before I left home but I brought what I had and used it on my legs on the long flights. I usually use this for circulation but I forgot to order a bottle for myself before we departed.

On Guard Sanitizing Mist: I had several bottles of this, we used a ton of it! So worth having this product every day whether traveling or not.

Spa & Skin Care

doTERRA Shampoo & Conditioner: Best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used on my hair. My hairdresser of 7 years always compliments how healthy my hair has gotten since I started to use doTERRA products. I agree with her.

doTERRA Facial Cleanser: I use it every day it is perfect for my skin type.

Pore Reducing Toner: I use this after I use the facial cleanser.

Misc

I brought a lot of extra oils along with a bag of sample bottles and stickers for the tops of the sample bottles. I gave away samples of oils to friends along with an introductory kit because they are awesome gifts to give to people.

I also had the 8 vial keychain with me for the kids on the plane and while we were on public transportation. This is such a brilliant accessory to have with you when traveling. I put all diluted sample bottles in it that I knew we would need. The kids would ask for it when they were having a meltdown or tummy ache or who knows what.

These oils are an absolute key in my life to keep things balanced every day. I only use doTERRA Essential Oils because they are such high-quality beautiful oils that come from a company I trust. When you are ready to start lets chat

  1. I love my lavender oil and I take it everywhere with me, it’s my life saver. I’m pinning your post to pick up a few more oils when I can. I’m really interested in the rollers. I have terrible anxiety & insomnia, but I use the lavender oil on the bottoms of my feet before bed.
