4 Essential Oils You Need For Every Vacation

Summertime is vacation time, and vacation time is relaxation time, right? Well, at least it should be. But no matter where we may go or how much we may plan, there always seems to be something that disrupts a vacation. Delayed flight, lost luggage, a run-down hotel or airBNB (how did they make the pictures look so good?!), and for most of us at some point, traveling can end up being a little tiring.

When you take a vacation, let’s limit your concerns to which bathing suit to wear while relaxing by the pool. Say Ta-Ta to stress and hello to Hakuna Matata with these simple tricks to a worry-free vacation and life…essential oils.

Essential oils are a natural and excellent way to keep your mind and body healthy, no matter where you are! Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, you need to make sure these essential oils travel with you.

  1. Lavender

Lavender is my go-to oil for just about anything. If you’re like me, you struggle to fall or stay asleep when you’re in an unfamiliar place or different, perhaps less comfortable bed (if only all my pillows would fit in my luggage!!). But don’t worry! All you have to do is diffuse some Lavender oil before bed, and voila! You get a fabulous night’s rest. Most people, though, do not travel with a diffuser, so try adding a few drops to a cotton ball and place it next to your pillow. Last resort – a drop on your wrist – easy.

You can also apply Lavender oil topically to help soothe sunburns, heal cuts or scrapes, ease muscle spasms, and repel insects. It is seriously a miracle oil! If you do use Lavender oil topically, be sure to dilute it with a carrier oil (i.e olive oil or coconut oil).

  1. Peppermint

Peppermint is another one of my go-to oils. Not only does it smell amazing, but you can use it for so many things! If you’re like me, you get tired when traveling (dreaded jet lag), and that can put a damper on things once you get to your destination. For a quick pick-me-up, just take a few deep breaths of Peppermint oil, and you’re good to go! If you’re not a morning person but don’t want to miss out on early adventures, put a few drops of Peppermint oil on a hot towel and breathe it in to help wake you up.

Another great use for peppermint is relieving congestion or sniffles. There’s nothing worse than getting to your vacation destination and realizing that the person who sat behind you on the plane decided to share their cold with you. If you feel the sniffles coming, just put a few drops of Peppermint oil in a bowl of hot water, place a towel over your head, lean over the bowl, and inhale the steam. This works best when you add in a few drops of Tea Tree oil as well.

A few other ways to use Peppermint:

  • Add a drop or two of Peppermint oil to your water bottle to help soothe an upset stomach or digestive issues. 
  • Mix a few drops of Peppermint oil with water and spray it on your body to help you stay cool and comfortable in hotter climates.

 

  1. Purify

This essential oil blend from Rocky Mountain Oils is an absolute must-have for any vacation simply because germs are everywhere, and you never really know just how well the airplane cabin or hotel room were cleaned. Plus, some places are just musty or have a lingering odor that can make it hard to fully enjoy your vacation. With Purify, those concerns go out the window…along with the smells and germs.

To help purify the air in your hotel room or rental car, simply add several drops of the Purify blend to a bottle of water and spray around the room. This spray works wonders, and it can even eliminate the lingering scent of cigarette smoke. If you want to make sure the countertops and bathroom are clean, you can mix the Purify blend with water and white vinegar for a natural, effective cleaner. You can also dilute the Purify blend with a carrier oil and use it as a hand cleanser while you’re out and about.

  1. Any Citrus Essential Oil

Citrus essential oils include grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange, tangerine, and citrus blends. Each citrus essential oil is great for a quick boost of energy and mood when you start getting tired and grumpy from a full day of walking around museums or over-crowded theme parks. All you need to do is take a few deep breaths of the oil when you need it. If you’re like me and don’t want to carry around a glass bottle all day, Rocky Mountain Oils has a great metal aromatherapy inhaler (see in products below) that doesn’t take up any room and can travel anywhere with you.
