The Best Essential Oils For Traveling

December 20, 2016

Whether you’re hitting the road to visit family or jetting off on a fabulous vacation, traveling can disrupt your health. To help make your trip a little easier, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best essential oils to use while on-the-go.

Peppermint: With a cool and clearing aroma, Peppermint can ease tummy troubles, muscle tension and help open up nasal passages. It's the perfect addition to a long hot shower after hours of traveling.

Fighting Five: Give your immune system a boost with Fighting Five. This blend of Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon and Eucalyptus can restore your vibrancy by helping to eliminate airborne bacteria and germs. Especially useful on an airplane, Fighting Five can help disinfect while it protects against infection. Try making your own Fighting Five hand sanitizer to take on the plane.

Frankincense Caterii: Refresh your skin while alleviating stress and fatigue by packing some Frankincense Caterii. If you spend too much time in the sun, Frankincense Caterii can help soothe a sunburn when mixed with carrier oil.

Digest Ease: Trying unique foods and flavors is part of the fun of traveling. The downside is the possibility of stomach issues. Digest Ease is a natural way to help alleviate discomfort. For car sickness or nausea, gently inhale Digest Ease and restore balance. Also, try making a DIY Digest Ease in a Roll-On for easy use while traveling.

    Hi Emily! Yes, Fighting Five can be used in either of these recipes. Simply replace the amount of oils in each recipe with Fighting Five.

    I too am wondering about a hand sanitizer recipe for Fighting Five. The one you share on your blog says:
    12 drops Lavender oil
    6 drops Peppermint oil
    3 ounces Aloe Vera gel
    1 ounce grain alcohol
    1 capsule of Vitamin E (400 IUs)

    And the one on the notation that comes with oils lists:
    Combine 12 drops Peppermint, 22 drops Tea Tree, 14 drops Sweet Orange and 4 oz aloe vera gel in a small squeeze bottle. Shake well and apply liberally to hands and rub until the gel has evaporated.

    Neither of these recipes contain many oils that are included in Fighting Five. I would think that the same things that make the oil good for direct oil for diffusing would and putting directly on the body would also work mixed with Aloe gel? What would you recommend the dilution be?

    Thank you very much!

    I’m getting more Fighting Five today, but I think adding myrrh to the travel oils is a great idea. I take it for little nicks, it stops the bleeding. Also, it’s great for breakouts. And I think Fighting Five is a great name.

    Thank you!
