We recently went on a week-long road trip to the east coast. That is a LOT of driving, and here is my list of Must-Haves for any trip. We used each and every of these during our trip and I am so glad I packed them all.
For an oil-addict it is hard to not pack every oil I own, so this is the short list. Great graphic on the bottom with a checklist you can go through when packing for your next vacation.
Thieves: Everyone needs an extra immune system boost when staying up late, going into lots of public places, etc. I loved drinking Thieves in my morning coffee in the car.
Joy: Because sometimes you get lost and need a little emotional support.
Valor: This one is great for emotional support for me to ease my nerves when encountering lots of crowds and strangers in social settings.
DiGize: Road trip snacks….enough said.
Immune boost roller: We like to mix some of our favorite immune supporting oils and keeping them in a handy roller bottle so we can roll right on our feet each morning before we head out for the day.
Thieves spray: This spray is awesome to spray all over your hotel room, think remotes, doorknobs, everywhere!
Citrus fresh & Grapefruit: These are my two favorites to drink in my water throughout the day. Delicious and great at keeping my energy up.
Purification: We liked putting purification blend on a cotton ball in the air vent to keep the car smelling fresh.
Peppermint: So many uses for peppermint! This is my husband’s favorite to take in a capsule after a big meal, but it’s also essential to keep as a “wake-me-up” for those long driving hours.
Lavender: We spent many hours in the sun during our trip, so we loved having lavender to apply to soothe and refresh our skin.
Travel diffuser: The little white thing in the center of the photo is my hand-held diffuser, you can also find some that fit in a cup holder and plug into the cigarette lighter.
Stress away: Because sometimes you get stuck in traffic….for a long time.
RC: Driving with the window down can invite in lots of different pollens and pollutants, we love to breath in some RC to maintain our respiratory health.
Oregano: This is a power-house for supporting your immune system. We took it in a capsule after a few extra late nights to keep our immune system top notch.
Frankincense: Frankincense is my favorite oil, so I couldn’t go anywhere without it. I loved adding a drop to my neti pot saline rinse to keep my sinuses nice and clear.
Tea tree (melaleuca a.): Tea tree is awesome for supporting the skin and we applied to non-cystic acne so our vacation photos had great glowing skin.
Deep relief: Long hours in the car can lead to some achy muscles. Deep relief comes with a convenient roller top so you can easily apply to shoulders, temples, back, etc.
PanAway: Not pictured, but with similar uses as Deep relief we love having both to choose from for soothing muscles and joints after a long day.
Ningxia red & Ningxia nitro: Not pictured, but I loved having my packets of Ningxia red to drink on-the-go for the mornings I didn’t have time to grab a breakfast. Ningxia nitro is also amazing at giving me a long even energy boost and I would drink it on those extra busy days to keep up with my husband.
