What oils should I put in my Doterra travel case?

Doterra oil holder list

Below I have put the best list of oils you should take on your travels:

Lavender essential oil

The absolute must for anyone traveling aboard is Lavender oil. This stunning oil has so many uses and can be combined with so many other Doterra oils for a wide range of minor health conditions.

If you are to take only a single oil, then this is the one. It is a powerful disinfectant, helping to clean scratches, bites and wounds. It is also a good sedative when used in small amounts, helping promote sleep if you are the person that struggles to sleep in unfamiliar surroundings. Use lavender if you have been out in the sun all day as it is great analgesic, reducing the burning sensation that comes with sun burn. It is this property that makes it so useful for insect bites.

Thyme essential oil

Thyme oil is an incredibly strong antiseptic and should be added to any antiseptic oil combination. It is a fantastic oil to have around for those suffering from flu symptoms such as sore throat or coughs. Thyme oil is an expectorant, so mix it with lavender and eucalyptus to help with coughs and other areas of congestion.

Eucalyptus essential oil

Other strong antiseptic is eucalyptus oil. Combine eucalyptus oil with lavender and thyme oil for a good all round disinfectant. Add one part eucalyptus with one part lavender and two parts thyme. This disinfectant can be used to clean an unsightly bathroom or to clean out an open wound.

Eucalyptus oil also acts on bacteria and viruses, making it really useful oil for cleaning. If there are signs of fever, place a few drops of eucalyptus in a bowl of boiling water and breathe the vapours to help relieve the condition.

Chamomile essential oil

Chamomile oil is wonderful oil for digestive issues. Upset digestive systems are common place when traveling abroad. Chamomile oil can help ease cramps, flatulence during bouts of upset and aids in improving liver function and improving appetite afterwards. It is excellent when combined with lavender oil for bumps and strains, easing swelling and bruising.

Geranium essential oil

Geranium oil like chamomile oil helps in calming the nerves and so is invaluable for helping to cope with stressful situations. If you are flying for an extended period of time, geranium oil is a must to help relieve exhaustion and possible homesickness. Along with lavender oil, it can be mixed with carrier oil for helping itchy dry skin that you may suffer from as result of a change in the water.

Ginger essential oil

Ginger oil is a must for digestive upsets, easing indigestion, vomiting, nausea and cramps. Ginger oil also is good oil for warming and so is helpful for chills and sprains. If you are the type of traveler who is really active during your time away, then ginger is a must for you as it is fantastic for easing over exercised muscles when combined with thyme oil, lavender oil and eucalyptus oil.

Peppermint essential oil

The final oil is peppermint oil, which is a good tonic and analgesic, making it useful for exhaustion when combined with lavender oil, chamomile oil and geranium oil. If you suffer from constipation due to a different diet or simply a change of water, then mix peppermint oil with thyme oil in a carrier oil and massage around the tummy in a clockwise direction for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Add two drops of lavender oil to one drop of peppermint oil and dilute it before massaging the mix around the temples, the back of the neck and across the brow for relief from headaches.
