When travelling long distances, we tend to tire because of the different time zones we are entering, so our body clocks have trouble adjusting. This is when we need to calculate the best we can, and listen to our bodies. Try to bring yourself into balance, by harmonising with safe, pure, physician grade essential oils. Pack them into your hand luggage, and have them within easy reach whilst travelling, and at airport stopovers.
What we want to try doing, is keep to our normal sleeping patterns as best we can, especially during our first day of travelling.
Use invigorating essential oils, such as, eucalyptus and peppermint in the morning to stay alert. At night you want to use oils, such as lavender, and geranium to calm your system, so you can relax, and wind down, and prepare for sleep.
Be vigilant. Apply one or two drops to bottoms of feet, temples, thymus, and lower back. Premix in a glass roller bottle, one tablespoon of carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil) with two or three drops of essential oil, massage into legs, feet, back and shoulders. When you arrive at your destination soak in a warm bath where possible with one or two drop of essential oil, to heighten your senses, or relax mind, body and spirit.
Working with pure organic essential oils, is about finding your personal balance. What oil works best for you, may differ from your travelling companion.
Staying grounded is essential for balancing emotions at this time. Some people experience high anxiety when flying.
A protective blend, and a respiratory blend are also sensible when jet setting. How many times do you pick up colds and flu, from people coughing, and spluttering? On guard essential oil blend protects your immune system, protecting against the germs floating around the cabin. On guard essential oil can be taken orally, one drop in a glass of water, and available in lozenges, and beadlets for convenience.
I’m in control of my sinus with Doterra’s Easy Air. Due to the air conditioning we really need to take precautions.
Staying hydrated is important, so drink plenty of fresh bottled water. Limit alcohol on flights, as this is dehydrating, avoiding altogether is preferable. I know it’s tempting to take advantage, of free alcohol, and some people find it relaxing, making it easier to sleep. Don’t over dose on caffeine either, as this can have adverse effects, and over stimulate the mind.
I like to stay well hydrated, so adding Hydralyte to my drinking water occasionally brings me peace of mind. Hydralyte helps replace electrolytes lost due to vomiting, diarrhoea, heavy sweating, and other dehydrating conditions. You can buy Hydrolyte from the Pharmacy in convenient powder sachets, or effervescent tablets. Both are travel friendly, and come in a choice of flavours.
Taking care of your own needs during flights is essential in controlling your emotional and physical wellbeing. Be in control, have your essential oils packed in easy to use, well labelled glass bottles. Always follow manufacturer’s instructions, and dilute if or when necessary. Be your own wellness advocate, and take control of your life. I wish you happy, and harmonious travelling to all the wonders of the world.
