Traveling With doTERRA
Now that the world is opening up everyone is slowly making their way back outside and traveling again. If any of you is a germaphobic like me, heading back outside and mingling with others may be a little daunting. To my fellow germaphobes…we can do it! I recently took my first plane ride since the pandemic began and wanted to share with you 3 items I used to stay safe while traveling and one bonus item.
DoTERRA Sanitizing Hand Wipes- These hand wipes have all of the sanitizing and cleansing power without any of the chemicals found in other sanitizing wipes. Every wipe is infused with the CPTG doTERRA On Guard essential oil blend. I used these to clean the parking garage meter, my seat and arm rests in the airport and on the plane, the tray table on the plane and several surfaces in the hotel room (tv remote, door handles, telephone etc.)
DIY sanitizing spray- This one I made myself. I used the following doTERRA essential oils to make this spray, Tea Tree, Lemon, Peppermint & Eucalyptus. I mixed all of these with white alcohol and sprayed the bedsheets, pillows, side chair, shower walls and floor, and the toilet seat and handle. I also used this spray to spray my shoes at the end of each day and before packing them at the end of my trip and the outside of my luggage before checking out of the hotel. This spray is all natural plus it smells great too!
I used these oils for these listed properties:
Lemon- antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antiviral, disinfectant, insecticidal
Tea Tree- antibacterial, antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, insecticidal.
Peppermint- antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, refreshing
Eucalyptus- antibacterial, antifungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antiviral, cleansing, deodorant, disinfectant, insecticidal, purifier
HINT: Peppermint & Eucalyptus essential oil is great to deter bedbugs.
Leon Design Safety Glasses- I used these while in the airport and on the plane to protect my eyes from airborne droplets. They have cool side and top shields, blue light blocking technology and are anti-fog (when worn correctly over your mask, from my experience). Who knew that safety glasses could be cute and stylish?!
Pilot Portable Diffuser- I love diffusing essential oils so I had to find a way to diffuse my essential oils even when I was away from home. The Pilot diffuser was my answer. This compact sized rechargeable diffuser is small enough to pack in your luggage or put in your carry on bag. It comes with its own hard carrying case with slots inside to store the charger and several bottles of your essential oils. After a complete charge it runs for 4 hours of continuous diffusion or 8 hours of intermittent diffusion. This diffuser is small enough to even be used in the car!
Know that you can travel safely without using the big name cleaning and sanitizing products. Using natural solutions like your essential oils is a safe and effective option.
Do yourself a favor and enjoy the outside…safely!
