When we travel away from home, we always make sure to pack as best as possible (to anticipate any potential situation). No one wants to get sick or anything. We want relax and enjoy our vacation without any last minute run to the store for anything. Now that I am learning more about many of the preventative health and wellness attributes of 100% pure therapeutic grade Young Living Essential Oils – I always make sure to pack my main ‘holistic medicine cabinet’ collection – Just In Case…
For more information about my specific needs, check out my article: Health Update
Here is a list of the oils that we take, either in a roll-on or as-is (in the original bottle). In no particular order:
Copaiba also packs an extra PUNCH enhancement to other oils – making them even stronger!
Anyone with any dietary need can easily get tripped up, when eating away from home. DiGize applied directly on the top of my stomach, helps to relieve any potential or current issues.
We also use it as part of my daughter’s daily blend (for school, etc.) Vera Ann’s “Schoole Blend”
AND in our allergy blend that general hits all annoyances: Healthy Frugal Living’s Lavender Lemon Peppermint Balm
AND for burns!
PanAway is one of the first bottles I grab at then end of the day, for muscle pain, fatigue, muscle cramps, headache, joint pain, bruises, or stiffness. Then I am refreshed and can enjoy another day of the trip, without limps or aches.
Peppermint has become one of my best friends. Young Living introduced me to the TRUE and PURE 100% essential oil as God intended. The scent alone cures any waves of nausea almost immediately. Also helpful with motion sickness.
I am very new to probiotics in general, so when my friend suggested Life 5, I was curiously skeptical. This high-potency probiotic, keeps my digestive system VERY regular and balanced. My bathroom visits are no longer painful or in either liquid or solid extreme (if you know what I mean). I take my Life 5 very seriously now – as a daily capsule.
Life 5™ represents the culmination of years of extensive research; builds and restores core intestinal health by providing five clinically proven probiotic strains including two advanced super strains to:
- enhance intestinal health
- sustain energy
- improve immunity
Life 5 contains 10 billion active cultures and improves colonization up to 10 times.
When we are travelling in our car, or spending any chunk of time in a single room – a dab of Purification essential oil on a cotton ball removes ALL feet and shoes smell.
We use R.C. at night, for a restful sleep. I apply a drop or two onto my husband’s throat, so he can breathe easier and not snore.
Stress Away applied directly onto the inner arms, is the key to a stressful day. Being a grump, or around one, is no fun for anyone – especially on vacation…
Being emotionally balanced is something my family takes pretty seriously. I am constantly surprised and impressed with my emotional healing and maintenance with my YL oils. For more details on my experience specifically with that, check out: Emotional Healing and Maintenance with Essential Oils
Another helpful emotional oil blend is: Peace & Calming. This oil helps slightly differently than the Stress Away – which is for daily and minor bumps. Peace & Calming can be used during the daytime for anxiety or depression-tendencies, as well as a blend for restful sleep. We use it for both (on our arms and/or in the diffuser). I especially love the Patchouli scent in this blend.
Progessence Plus is vital for my daily hormonal balance. My pre-teen has also started using this as well. 1 drop of this potent serum is applied every morning to the nape of my neck. The main ingredient, wild yam, is nature’s strongest source of estrogen. When I forget to apply this serum, I tend to be a little more sensitive… and difficult to be around.
Did you know that Grapefruit is a natural appetite suppressant??? I didn’t either! So, for the last week or so, I have been adding a single drop of Grapefruit Essential Oil to my water, or morning iced tea. I avoid weighing myself often, but I CAN tell you that my clothes is starting to feel loose… and I have lost a few pounds already!
Friends have dropped pounds adding a drop of this citrus fruit to one of their Big Toes!
I have truely, madly, deeply fallen in love with Thieves as my go-to for ALL things clean! No more toxic cleaning chemicals in my house!
And now, Thieves is my #1 way to avoid anyone getting sick on a vacation. Some people can start using Thieves on your feet the week before a trip to support the immune system and ward off any potential bug. While on our trip, Thieves is quite handy for canker sores. Hubby and I often accidentally CHOMP down our lip or cheek – which then turns into a canker sore. We apply Thieves directly on the sore, and it is completely gone within 48 hours.
On trips, I bring:
Now, what do we do for sleep? One of my recent and most effective ways to relax and wind down after a long day: Relaxation Massage Oil
This self-explanatory oil is a delicious combination of:
When applied the rich aroma slows down your racing thoughts, while your skin soaks in the velvety goodness. This way, we can get both the topical and aroma-therapeutic effects.
What would you add to my list?
