Best Essential Oil Products for Traveling! April 19, 2017 17:30

Traveling is fun, yet exhausting-- it can have bad effects on your skin, lower your immune system and even get you sick. During air travel, the effects are even worse. During any trip, you want to be as healthy and relaxed as possible- that's why we've compiled a perfect travel bag list of Earth Speaks handmade natural products (for aromatherapy, skin care and overall health) to make it through your next trip. Side note: if you're traveling by plane, don't fret because they're all under 3.4 ounces!

 

1. Motion Sickness Inhaler

We love this inhaler blend! With dill weed, ginger, chamomile and peppermint (among others), this blend of essential oils is perfect for soothing the stomach and easing nausea. Peppermint oil is among the most effective oils in curing nausea and digestive issues. Our inhalers only contain a piece of cotton saturated with essential oils, so there is no liquid and no mess. They are the ideal shape and size to bring with you on a plane, train or bus!

2. Lip Balm

If you are traveling by airplane, the air inside of the pressurized cabin you are traveling in feels dry and stagnant. That's why it is very important to hydrate your skin, particularly your lips, while in flight. Our all natural lip balm contains cocoa butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, beeswax and organic essential oils.

3. Hydrating Face Oil

As previously mentioned, the air in an airplane can severely dry out your skin. In addition, depending on where you are traveling to, chances are that the climate is going to be different from the one that you came from. Using our Hydrating Face Oil once a day is a good way to keep your skin moisturized and your natural oils in balance. It can also help to protect your skin from the sun and other harsh weather conditions. 

4. Insomnia Relief Massage Oil

Sleeping in a new place can be hard to adjust to, especially if you factor in jet lag. This Insomnia Relief massage oil blend is ideal for applying immediately before you get into bed, to help aid sleep and relaxation. It contains essential oils such as lavender and roman chamomile, which are natural sedatives. 

5. Anxiety Inhaler 

The best carry-on for the anxious traveler! Whether you have a fear of planes or just need something to help you transition from work to vacation mode, the Anxiety Inhaler is for you. It is a homemade blend containing grapefruit, ylang ylang and frankincense essential oils. These oils help to relieve stress and calm the mind. Also, taking in deep breaths through the nose is always beneficial for reducing anxiety.

6. Roll-On Dark Circle Oil

Between staying out late, exploring the sights of a new place (which usually entails lots of walking), and adjusting to a new schedule, traveling can really take a toll on your skin and body. This Dark Circle removal oil blend is made from 100% natural ingredients, including fennel and geranium oil, which help improve the elasticity of your skin. Massaging it onto your under eye area promotes blood circulation and helps dark circles fade away.

 

7. Headache Relief Oil

Headaches can come at any time due to a variety of causes and take you by surprise. This blend of peppermint, lavender, marjoram and chamomile in jojoba oil can simply be rolled straight onto your skin, focusing on the back of the neck, temples and forehead. Depending on the severity of the headache, it can be used as a substitute for ibuprofen, or to supplement it.
