We recently went on vacation while trying to combat whatever bug was going around. I have a vacation arsenal of Young Living essential oils that I put together for this trip. Below I have gone into why I choose these 8 oils.
In my little travel zip pouch I have made little rips and tears, as you'll see, to accommodate the 15ml oil bottles as this pouch was made to hold the 5ml oil bottles.
Breathe Again Roll-On: This supercharged version of RC blend is packaged in a convenient dispensing directly onto skin. Contains four different eucalyptus oils, five additional essential oils, all known for their ability to relax airways, make breathing easier and reduce coughing. In addition, these oils have anti-inflammatory characteristics. The five additional oils are: peppermint, copaiba, myrtle, manuka and laurus nobilis.
I brought this oils to help us breathe, of course! Our sinuses were taking the hit from the Iowa weather and we were a bit congested.
Deep Relief Roll-On: Again, a convenient application bottle that relieves muscle soreness and tension, soothes sore joints and ligaments, helps calm stressed nerves, and reduces inflammation. This powerful blend contains nine essential oils, most of which are known for their anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving characteristics. The oils are: peppermint, lemon, Idaho balsam fir, copaiba, clove, wintergreen, helichrysum, vetiver, and palo santo.
I am SO glad we packed this!! Between being crunched on an airplane to hotel beds to driving to San Diego for a day because we missed our flight and had 2 extra days before the next one....this one saved us!! Back pain, leg pain, headache, you name it! This came in handy. Big time! (Not to say we didn't LOVE our vacation, we just were a bit sore, par for course!)
EndoFlex: This blend amplifies metabolism and vitality and creates hormonal balances. It also is designed specifically for to bring support and balance to the endocrine system. What is the endocrine system? See the photo for guide. The minty aroma is uplifting and energizing. In this blend we have: spearmint, sage, geranium, myrtle, German chamomile, and nutmeg.
I love, love love this oil. Some may ask why I bring it on vacation. What is vacation? A LOT of activity, plans, money, new place, new food, and unavoidable "stress". Yes vacation is wonderful but there are plans to coordinate, events going on and loss of sleep. A strain on your adrenalin and thyroid and all in between. This is why I think EndoFlex is one of the most important tools in my oils toolbox.
En-R-Gee: This blend increases vitality, circulation, and alertness. As one of my favorites also it revitalizes with a blend of stimulating oils that have been used traditionally to help restore mental alertness. Uplifting and strengthening as the name suggests, it boosts energy. In this blend you'll find: rosemary, juniper, lemongrass, nutmeg, Idaho balsam fir, clove and black pepper.
This oil goes without saying, it's pure Wake Up! It smells amazing and zesty similar to the thieves but it nice to have around. It's in my diffuser at home in the mornings also.
Idaho Blue Spruce- Idaho Blue Spruce Essential Oil contains high percentages of alpha-pinene and limonene. Alpha pinene is known for supporting the respiratory system. Limonene is a powerful antioxidant and is contained in oils such as Grapefruit. Idaho Blue Spruce Essential Oil is grounding and provides a feeling of deep peace and security. It helps us to open our heart by providing a sense of security and trust in who we are (and the universe). It empowers us to be that person by knowing that you are safe to become that person.
I brought this oil as I thought it would be a fun addition for Rob and I to use on this bonding experience. Here is more information about how it works with couples physically and emotionally, click here.
Peace & Calming: This blend promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace and emotional well-being, helping to dampen tensions and uplift spirits. When massaged onto the bottom of the feet, it can be a wonderful prelude to a peaceful nights rest. It may calm overactive and excited children. It also aids in feeling blue, anxieties, stress and insomnia. It contains: blue tansy, patchouli, tangerine, orange and ylang ylang.
I brought this oil to use on the plane to relax and get some rest. This was also very helpful when relaxing after the hustle and bustle of traveling.
Thieves: This is the most amazing blend of highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious essential oil. In this is: clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary. To read more on it, click here.
This oil is my all around Go-To oil. I use it to keep germs away on the plane, in the hotel, my hand sanitizer in public, and so many other uses. It's just amazing and I love it!
Valor: This blend was formulated to balance energies and instill courage, confidence, and self-esteem. It helps the body self-correct it's balance and alignment. In this blend: spruce, rosewood, frankincense, and blue tansy.
Who doesn't love Valor? This oil is so popular, it's always nearby and I have it on vacation for just being able to take on the day and of course for rock climbing! I am afraid of heights and dapped this on before going up onto the top of a mountain!
