Check out my featured guest post on Kendra Pierson to learn about the best essential oils to keep on hand while traveling!
As a kid, I loved road trips. They were an adventure and meant snacks, snacks, and more snacks. They were also a great way to break out of the day to day routine. I didn’t have a care in the world when my family and I were on vacation (especially when we were at Disney World!).
My parents loved our trips too but I never realized how much planning and coordination was required of them during our trips. Of course, once I had kids, I quickly realized vacations are not all fun and games for adults.
There are a ton of logistics involved and, of course, things don’t always go as planned. Cranky or sick kids, stressed parents, and over-indulgence are all part of the package. And this applies whether traveling is for fun or education (or both).
Knowing what I know now, I make sure to always have certain essential oils on hand.
Of course, while traveling you want to pack as light as possible so you will only want to bring the oils you will be most likely to use.

Always dilute peppermint unless you’re only using a couple of drops for a headache or a small burn. Otherwise, you will want to dilute about 7-9 drops in 10 mls of a carrier oil like coconut or almond oil.
think of. You can even diffuse it in the car to help every one relax but make sure whoever is driving is nice and alert.
Combining lavender with peppermint can also reduce the symptoms of allergies (when inhaled or diffused), a sunburn, or to lessen headache pain.
You can use the same dilution as mentioned for peppermint oil above and apply to the skin to help keep bugs away.
It’s a given that stress comes along with traveling. But, keeping these oils on hand can at least give you the peace of mind knowing that you have a natural way to handle (almost) anything unexpected that may come up.
Happy traveling, my friends!
