Lavender Essential Oil
A small bottle of lavender essential oil is the ideal travel companion. It is versatile and helps to stay fit and relaxed in a natural way.
Put a few drops on a handkerchief and inhale – your cloudy head will soon be clear again after a stressful day.
A handkerchief soaked with a few drops of the oil placed on the pillow promotes a deep restful sleep while gently snoozing surrounded by a pleasant, familiar smell.
As one of the very few essential oils, lavender oil can also be applied undiluted to the skin. If white sebum spots develop on the face while travelling, a cotton swab soaked in lavender oil is ideal for making the mishap disappear overnight or at least greatly alleviating it.
If you want to massage your temples and neck, mix a few drops of lavender essential oil with a vegetable oil. If you’re traveling and all the shops are already closed, the hotel restaurant will certainly help you out with a little cooking oil to mix with.
For a relaxing soak, add a few drops of Lavel oil to bath water, close your eyes and indulge.
If you are unsure whether you are allergic to lavender oil, you should try this all-purpose travel weapon at home beforehand.
