Top 5 Essential Oils To Travel With

Are you gearing up for a summer vacation? If so, be sure to pack some essential oils along with your other belongings. Here are the top five oils that should be a part of your travel arsenal. 

Bergamot Essential Oil:

This cheerful and uplifting citrus Essential Oil has been said to bring a feeling of calmness and a sense of security, which is important when you travel to new places. Because it is believed to calm the heart rate, this essential oil can be used as a sleep aid for those suffering from jet lag. It is believed to improve circulation and energy, especially when sitting in tight areas for long periods of time. Also, it can help with anxiety and nervousness by allowing you to breathe more easily. This oil is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, making it a great addition to natural cleaning or disinfecting products such as hand sanitizers or foot sprays.

Pepper Black Essential Oil:

This oil is said to relax muscles when they start to ache or feel tight. It also helps to ease joint pain that can result from lifting heavy luggage, sitting in tight spaces, or resting at odd angles. This oil has warming, anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used in stimulating massage or roll-on oils to increase circulation. This oil is antiviral and helps protect against harmful bacteria. Its spicy aroma may also help to clear congestion.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil:

This Essential Oil's cooling effect has a soothing effect on the mind and on pains caused by inflammation such as headaches, muscle or joint pain, as well as physical aches. It is believed to have a cooling effect that can improve mental clarity, boost energy, ease pain, and reduce fatigue due to anxiety from new stressful travel-related stressors. It is believed that Eucalyptus Oil's clarifying properties can help with congestion and other respiratory discomforts. The oil's strong antibacterial and antiseptic properties make it easier to heal abrasions and prevent them from becoming infected. It can also be used as an effective natural remedy to stop insects from biting.

Ginger Essential Oil:

This warm essential oil is said to empower users by replacing feelings like doubtfulness and helplessness, with energy, determination, and confidence to face all the unknowns and challenges of travel. This oil can be used to treat motion sensitivity, nausea, and muscle aches.

Sage Essential Oil:

This oil has been known to have a clean, fresh scent and to cleanse the skin due to its antibacterial/antimicrobial properties. It is ideal for hand washing, in addition to natural hand sanitizers, and to prevent wounds from getting infected. The refreshing, stimulating scent of this product can naturally combat drowsiness, and help you to have a brighter, more focused mindset when it is necessary, such as during meditation and other spiritual practices.
