Travel essentials to tackle mishaps naturally

Let me share with you travel essentials that come handy to overcome little mishaps and carry on enjoying the holidays. Travel means new environment, new food, sleeping away from your bed. It may also means travel sickness, indigestions, heatstroke or sunburn, cuts, stings or bruises from outdoors activities 
My personal experience is that rollers, sprays or small gels are the best options. They are already diluted, easy to apply, no spillages and no wastage of the essential oils.  

Lets’s start …


👉Motion sickness & indigestions:


A good recommendation is a blend of Peppermint and Ginger essential oils as they help with both issues. This blend is powerful for nausea, vertigo, motion sickness, indigestion, relieves cramps and bloating. Apply on the stomach area, and up the digestive track, on the wrists and take deep breaths from them.


In addition, it is an effective blend for respiratory conditions such us, allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis. Apply on heart area, back of neck, wrists , and take deep breaths from them. 


Moreover, it is also useful for tension headaches. Apply at the back of the neck, temples (be careful with the eyes), wrists and take deep breaths from them. 


If you do not like Ginger just Peppermint essential oil can also do the trick. If you don’t like peppermint just Ginger! It has been used by many cultures as a systemic tonic to balance hormones, enhance energy, improve digestion, reduce morning and travel sickness, reduce inflammation and aid in circulation and immunity. 






👉PMS or menstrual cramps: 

Clary sage is the women’s remedy. If you know it will catch you right  when you are travelling, a 5ml small roller just for you is the answer. 
Clary Sage essential oil is one of my absolute favourites for hormonal support, for those days of the month or menopause health. It provides just the right amount of balance to aid in the symptoms of PMS, along with bloating, cramps, mood swings and food cravings. Just a few drops on the bottom of your feet, or directly over the ovaries can work wonders in a matter of minutes. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Phytotherapy Research found that inhalation of Clary Sage oil had the ability to reduce cortisol levels by 36% and improve thyroid hormone levels.


👉 Trouble Sleeping:

Nothing like Lavender to help unwind and promote a good night sleep. 

With the addition of Roman Chamomile you get an excellent roller to travel with small kids. It relieves cramps, reduces restlessness, and support the little one’s fear of staying outside home. 

Moreover, this blend is excellent for cuts, stings, bruises, eczema, skin infections, nasal congestion, heatstroke, sunburn, diarrhea and Hay fever. It’s important to remember that Peppermint should not be used frequently with the little ones, so this is a very good alternative. Last but not least, If you do not have or don’t like Clary sage, this blend is also good for PMS. 




👉Seasonal threats: 


There are many essential oils that boost immunity. However, all the citrus ones should be avoided during summer. Therefore, let’s be pragmatic and just carry Tea Tree, pure in a vial, or diluted in a roller/spray bottle. Tea tree is an unusual oil in that it is active against all three categories of infectious organisms: bacteria, fungi and viruses. It is a very powerful immunostimulant, when the body is threatened by any of these organisms, Tea Tree increases its ability to respond. 

It is common knowledge that Tea Tree is good to treat wounds, cuts, burns and stings. However, it is also very effective for the treatment of cold sores, mouth ulcers and herpes. Sometimes when we don’t protect our lips from the sun we can end up having herpes or skin irritations. Apply just one drop of Tea Tree (or Melaleuca) before the skin issues progresses. 

To combat sore throats quickly, gargle a concoction of 2 drops of Tea Tree in warm water couple of times x day. 

As a general stimulant for the immune system, rub Tea Tree on the bottom of the feet.  In 20 mins is in every cell of the body. It works wonders. 


👉All Skin Ointments, or small gels: 

Ointments provides a moisture barrier that helps protect while simultaneously soothing and hydrating the skin. I recommend one with Frankincense, cedarwood, Tea Tree, Lavender, Helychrisum and jojoba. Already diluted, small package, gentle and non-irritating, so ideal for sensitive skin.


👉Repellent Sprays:

 Which we can apply on the skin knowing It is made of all natural pure essential oils so no nasty toxins and endocrine disturbing chemicalsIf you don’t like herby aromas I also recommend a combination of Tea Tree and Geranium. After a long sunny day we may end up with sunburn and skin dehydration. Tea Tree is an insect repellent and Geranium brings healing, a cooling effect and balance to congested skin.


Remember that to prevent crepe skin it is also important to reduce the toxins we apply directly on the skin. Similarly, to prevent crepey skin is the use of sunscreen to lock the moisture in and prevent dehydration.



 In conclusion,  you just need a couple of essential oil rollers, sprays or gels to tackle mishaps naturally when travelling.
