Since I am traveling, I decided to make a “Cheat Sheet” for the most needed essential oils when traveling. I don’t want to bring a ton, as I will only be gone a week, but I also wanted a cheat sheet to take with me so I know what my go-to oil is when traveling. I have only included the few oils that I feel will come in handy when traveling. However, I am open to taking another oil or 2 if anyone recommends more! I will be in Costa Rica, near the jungle, with lots of sun. Because of those factors, I have chosen the below oils.

Lavender – The “Swiss Army Knife of oils”

Anxiety, Sun burn, calming, helps with sleep, insect bites/bee stings, bruising, stress, poison ivy, Typhoid Fever, fights infection, relaxes muscles, headaches

Peppermint

Sunburn, alertness, ANY type of stomach issue, headaches, sinuses, congestion, bruises, bug bites… also great to apply as a “finisher” after applying other oils, as peppermint drives deep into the skin

Digestzen

Solely bringing this for food poisoning & digestive issues! Oregano is also good.

Onguard

Supports immune system & protects from bacterial infections, colds, overall sickness

Melaluca

Cuts, Scrapes, Infections, Sun burn… any type of skin issue

Deep Blue

Any type of muscle pain or ache, restless legs, bruises, headaches, burns (mainly using for inflammation/sore knee)

Other oils to consider taking when traveling for specific symptoms:

Anxiety (flying, traveling)

Onset of any sickness/immune system

Stomach issues – pepperment, digestzen

Frankincense – overall healing, coughing, bug bites, stress, immune system, arthritis

Other items to consider when traveling:

Earl grey tea – for sunburns!!!

baby wipes – for all those times you can’t get a shower in or have immediate access to clean water

Sunscreen

Bug spray

coconut oil – great for hair, moisturizing, mixing with your oils, etc.

This is just a basic list – I could probably expand, but I will only be gone for a week. I will update after my trip as well as when I go on my longer trips. Does anyone else have recommendations on essentials to bring while traveling? Any other travel tips?
