Items Recommended:

Small Tin: An empty Altoids tin works perfectly.

dōTERRA Essential Oils (4-6 of your choice): Add essential oils to each glass vial (you can purchase them here). Use essential oils you most commonly use and would be the most beneficial to have readily available while traveling (such as Lavender, Peppermint, On Guard, Digestzen, Lemon, PastTense, Breathe, Deep Blue, etc.).

Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO): Make sure to fill one of the vials with Fractionated Coconut Oil in case you need to dilute any of the other essential oils. You’ll be very grateful if you accidentally got Peppermint essential oil too close to your eyes.

Lip Balm: Chapped lips are never enjoyable, especially when you’re on the go. Make sure to include lip balm to relieve any dry chapped lips. You will be happy to have it!

Peppermint Beadlets: Fill one vial up with dōTERRA Peppermint Beadlets to help calm any digestive discomfort, or to simply freshen your breath. It’s amazing how powerful one small beadlet is.

On Guard Throat Drops: You never want to be sick while traveling. Include some On Guard Protecting Throat Drops to give your body that extra immune boost if you feel like you are coming down with the cold or flu. It is also great to have on hand if your throat is hoarse after a concert or sporting event.

Adhesive Bandages: You never know when you’ll need one, so it is important to have a couple on hand at all times.

5/8 dram Glass Vials: Perfect to put your essential oils in while traveling. You can fit a generous amount of oil into each vial. You can also use these vials to give samples to those who are interested in trying essential oils. You can purchase vials here.

Here are a few examples of how a travel kit can help you feel at peace when you’re on the go:

Headache? Apply peppermint to your temples and the back of the neck.

Need to wash your hands but don’t have access to a bathroom? Put a couple drops of On Guard on your hands with some fractionated coconut oil for an effective hand sanitizer.

Nauseous? Put a couple drops of Peppermint in your hands and inhale.

Having a hard time sleeping while traveling? Rub a couple drops of Lavender on your feet or add to your pillow to help you relax and sleep better.

Upset stomach? Rub a couple drops of DigestZen on your stomach, bottoms of feet, or add to a glass of water to help relieve your digestive discomfort.

Feeling anxious? Put a couple drops of Lavender or Balance in the palms of your hands and inhale slowly to help calm nerves.
