Journey with Essence—Traveling with Nature's Best

The Traveler's Toolkit 

Travel can disrupt our usual routines and comfort, making it essential to find ways to stay balanced and grounded while on the move. Essential oils are a traveler’s best friend, providing natural solutions to common travel challenges like jet lag, fatigue, and stress of being in new and foreign environments.  It is super important to continue with some Selfcare routines and rituals despite being away from home.  At The Scent Apothecary, we recommend incorporating these portable, powerful essences into your travel routine for a more enjoyable and revitalizing journey.

Essential Oils for Motion Sickness and Digestive Health Ginger and peppermint oils are invaluable for those prone to motion sickness or digestive upset while traveling. Ginger oil can be applied topically to the stomach or wrists after dilution with a carrier oil, or inhaled directly from the bottle to help soothe nausea. Peppermint oil is equally effective for settling the stomach and can invigorate the senses when fatigue sets in.

Calming Oils for Stress and Anxiety Travel can often bring about stress and anxiety, whether from flying or simply being out of one's comfort zone. Lavender and chamomile are perfect for these situations; their calming properties help alleviate anxiety and promote relaxation. Use these oils in a portable diffuser or within a roller blend and apply them to pulse points for a calming effect throughout your journey.  Check out our two variants of roller oil blends here :

Refreshing Scents for Energy and Alertness To combat jet lag or general travel weariness, citrus oils like orange, lemon, or grapefruit are perfect as they help to uplift and energize. Dabbing a little oil on a handkerchief or using a roll-on product can help refresh and awaken your senses, making long travel days more bearable.

Sleep Aids for Different Time Zones Adjusting to new time zones can disrupt sleep patterns. Essential oils such as lavender, vetiver, and ylang-ylang can be used to create a pre-sleep routine that signals your body it's time to wind down. These oils can be used in a travel-sized diffuser or added to a bath where facilities permit.  We offer pre-blended roller blends and room sprays which incorporate some of these power oils to help you have a restful night in a foreign environment.

Sanitizing with Essential Oils Tea tree and eucalyptus oils have natural antibacterial and antiviral properties, making them excellent for sanitizing and cleansing surfaces while traveling. A small spray bottle with a mixture of water and these oils can be used to sanitize airplane tray tables, hotel room surfaces, and other high-touch areas.  Our “Clarifying” room spray is designed to help you here.  Check out the various variants of this nifty, easy-to-carry along sized room sprays.  They make such great travel companions!

Portable Solutions: Roll-Ons and Inhalers For convenience and ease of use, consider packing roll-on applicators and personal inhalers. These can be pre-filled with your preferred essential oils, providing a discreet and mess-free way to enjoy aromatherapy on the go. Roll-ons are particularly useful for applying oils directly to the skin for immediate relief from headaches, anxiety, or nausea.
