The most effective aromatherapy essential oils are broad-acting and can be used for a variety of symptoms so you don’t have to take a lot of them with you when you travel. Collecting your essential oil travel kit can be simple, inexpensive, and aromatic. Using eucalyptus essential oil for respiration; tea tree essential oil for first aid; rosemary essential oil for stimulation; peppermint essential oil for digestion; and lavender essential oil for soothing sedation – you can treat just about any ailment that might occur while you are away.

  • To treat nausea and motion sickness, use a blend of one drop each rosemary and peppermint essential oils on a handkerchief and inhale the aroma.
  • To calm travel anxiety and help you sleep, take a whiff of lavender straight from the bottle!
  • For trouble sleeping, sprinkle a few drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow. Add a few drops of lavender and peppermint to a hot bath to help you settle down or apply a warm compress of lavender to the forehead or chest.
  • To treat aches and pains from traveling, blend rosemary, peppermint, and eucalyptus essential oils in a carrier oil like almond oil, jojoba oil or shea oil to use as a rub for sore muscles and limbs.
  • To treat a sprain or similar injury, use the RICE method – Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation combined with a gentle massage using rosemary essential oil diluted in almond or comparable carrier oil.

OK, I am doing laundry so I’ll have enough clean underwear for the trip so I will continue this blog tomorrow. This will give you time to find a nice small bag to carry your essential oils and carrier oils with you.
