Let’s talk about traveling with oils. No, I don’t mean overnight or vacation or road trips or anything like that. Although yes, find a way to take all your oils with you. I mean dropping your kids off at school and going to work and grocery shopping and going to the zoo. It’ s important to keep your oils safe, where they can’t fall and break, and to keep them covered and out of direct sunlight.
I carry my oils with me EVERYWHERE. Let me say that a different way: there isn’t a day that I leave my house that I don’t have every bottle of oil that I own in my bag. I also travel with every DIY roll-on bottle, a 1 oz dropper bottle of carrier oil, and my diffuser necklace. I also have a diffuser in my office at work. I guess you could say that I’m prepared.
Have oils, will travel. That’s my motto.
When I first got my kit a few months ago, I sewed this little bag to carry around the bottles. I thought I’d be set for a while.
I quickly outgrew that (not only because of the size but also because the zipper was awful and the bag was falling apart, because, oh yeah, I can’t sew…), so I upgraded to this makeup bag from Forever 21. It held 5 mL and 15 mL bottles and was the perfect size. For a while. (Also, the bottles fell over sometimes which was stupid and aggravating.)
Just yesterday, I got this beauty in the mail! *Cue angels singing*
I perfectly holds a mix of 5 mL and 15 mL bottles, along with some roller bottles. (Hashtag real talk: I down-sized a little when I moved from the makeup bag to this one by taking out some near-empty 5 mL bottles that I have duplicates of. My name’s Kindel and I’m an oil-aholic.)
Truthfully, I feel more prepared for anything that might happen by having all of my oils with me. I can’t anticipate if I’m going to have a headache so why would I leave the house without Panaway, Peppermint, or Deep Relief? And what about heartburn. You think I’m gonna leave the house without Lemon? And let’s be real, I NEED to keep a Stress Away roller with me at all times!
For me, I almost always have my computer bag with me. It truly functions as my purse and diaper bag. My oil case fits nicely in the bag and allows me to keep my
security blanket oils with me at all times!
Once I need more space, I’ll order additional cases like this. That will be much easier to manage than one extra large case of some sort.
So there you go! My favorite way to travel with oils! What about you? Do you “have oils, will travel?”
DISCLAIMER: The things I share with you are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any illness or be a substitute for any medicine. It is true that I have found less need for OTC medicines, but you have to make choices that are right for your family. Another choice I’ve made is to exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils. I believe they are 100% pure without any synthetic additives. That’s huge to me! I have read a lot of material on different essential oil companies and Young Living is what I have chosen. If you choose to use essential oils, I encourage you to do some research and choose the brand that you believe in.
