Hi everyone! My name is Judy from Happy Holistics and today, I’m going to show you how I make my travel essential oils kit. I say it’s for travel, but you can use it at work, camping, etc – you can use it anywhere as long as it’s not a scent-free zone. You’d want to be mindful of people with allergies – even if essential oils are natural, they can still trigger allergenic responses in sensitive individuals. Some oils also smell like medicine and/or unpleasant to others, so again, be respectful of other people.
* Glass essential oil bottles – I chose 1ml containers for their portability.
* A container to keep them together – I’d stick to a hard case container, like this tin – simply for the extra protection – I wouldn’t want my glass bottles to break in a cloth bag or have a ziploc bag splitting on me. The size will depend on how many oils you want to keep with you and how big your bottles are.
* You’ll need your “must-have” EOs – this list will be different depending on your needs and what you can’t live without. I’ll share with you which ones I use the most towards the end of this video.
* You’ll also need labels. Washi tape and a pen works just fine. My writing is neither tiny nor legible, so I printed mine. You can also buy them, but they’re kind of pricey.
* First choose your oils so you know how to size and customize the rest of your kit.
* Fill your travel-sized containers, snap on the orifice reducers, then screw on the lids and label them as you go.
* Make sure that you have a container big enough to fit all the ones you want to take – I don’t like them to move too much, so I’ve got an empty ‘place holder’ – for whenever I want to add another oil.
* The only oil I bring everywhere with me is Peppermint for headaches. It’s also great for repelling spiders, reducing nausea and reducing motion sickness.
* For travel, I bring Lavender for good sleep and spot treatment for pimples, burns and bug bites. It’s also used for headaches.
* Tea Tree is also good for pimples and bug bites – but since I’ve got lavender that does that and more, I could leave this at home. I am mentioning it so that you would know that you can use whatever oils you already have if it has a similar action – you don’t have to go out and buy a new bottle oil.
* I like eucalyptus for clearing the sinuses or using it for colds. It helps to repel bugs, so if you’re camping or spending time in nature, you can apply a couple of drops.
* And lemon – don’t laugh – but I like to have it on hand to remove sticky goo and to clean stuff – like you never know when you might roll over a piece of gum with your luggage and it just sticks there or leave residue. It also smells nice, so it’s a great pick-me-up.
* If you’re concerned about getting sick – oil of oregano is anti-bacteria, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic – but I’d bring the full size. Oil of oregano is diluted while Oregano EO is not. Since both are still super potent, you might consider adding a carrier oil before filling the entire bottle.
