Oily Traveling tips (first hand experience)
Okay, first, I am only discussing Young Living Essential Oils and products.
Be sure to pack your vitamins that you would normally take. You can pack them in your carry on along with supplements. You don’t want to skip out on necessary nutrients and minerals, especially when your body is stressed out as it is from travel.
Anytime you fly, always use the 3-1-1 rule. All liquids must be 3 oz or less, in a one 1 quart bag per person.
So what I usually do, is I grab the 5ml bottles of oils and I can pack probably 12 in a single quart bag if I really wanted to. But I only take the ones I think I’ll need the most because space is essential.
Oils I take with me that are a MUST: Digize, Peppermint, Lavender, Lemon, and Peace and Calming. I packed these in their own quart bag and made sure the air was sucked out enough to put the whole thing into my 1 quart bag that would contain the rest of my liquid items that are below.
I was able to fit these into my quart bag with my extra contacts, contacts solution, Young Living Deoderant, my husband’s deodorant, Thieves hand sanitizer (this is a MUST for me, too many germs in an airport) and Young Living Lip balm. My husband always travels with me so for his bag I stuff the Young Living Bon Voyage Items that include 3oz bottles of Shampoo, conditioner, bath and shower gel, and Thieves MouthWash along with any other small liquid items.
You might be able to fit the Ningxia red Pouches inside one of the quart bags as well. I was unable to as I lacked space. Always keep your liquid bag in an easily accessible place, this makes it easier to dig out when going through security.
Quick mini tip: Don’t wear jeans that have metal sparkly things on the butt…the scanners WILL go off and you will get a pat down lol. (I experienced this on my most recent trip, had I known better, I would never have worn them lol)
Bring a couple of cotton balls. These are great for putting Lavender or Purification on and into your luggage full of dirty laundry on the way home. Keeps the smell at bay and even helps the laundry smell a little fresher.
I hope these tips prove helpful on your next trip!
If you have any questions about other items to bring, you can always ask the TSA when in doubt. Just Google it, and a list of what you can or cannot bring on board will be available.
