Essential Oils for Travelers

Two Oils to Consider on Your Next Trip

Travel can create some of our happiest memories; however, navigating airports, foreign languages or unknown cities can sometimes put a damper on an adventure. Essential oils can help ease those kinds of situations.

"As a holistic wellness advocate," says Marilyn York, Independent Distributor for Young Living Essential Oils, "I always stress the importance of utilizing the purest essential oils available for attaining optimum results—especially when using for ingestion or use on the skin."

"Using pure essential oils," says York, "helps reduce the possibility of exposure to any pesticides or herbicides that the plants may have been grown in (which oils are distilled from), as well as to eliminate the possible exposure to synthetic oils. Both situations change the chemistry composition of the oils, and potentially create situations such as allergies."

York notes that many essential oil companies do not create ingestible oils, therefore, it’s important to choose those that are specifically identified as ones that may be ingested. With that in mind, she suggests two oils to consider taking on your next trip: peppermint and lavender:

Peppermint
Add some pep to your step by inhaling peppermint’s refreshing aroma after stepping off the plane. Massage some on the bottoms of your feet after a long day of walking or add a drop or two to warm water and drink to help ease the effects of eating too many new kinds of foods.

Lavender
Sometimes, the best vacations push us far outside of our comfort zones—with some resulting tension. Help your body adjust to a new time zone by adding lavender to a nighttime tea to improve sleep quality. Inhale the oil’s floral aroma before venturing off to a new adventure—like zip lining in Costa Rica—for its calming scent, or add several drops of Lavender to massage oil and massage into skin after a day of too much sun.
