Five Natural Travel Essentials

There are several key items which will help any journey along, even when you don’t need to worry about travelling light. Some of these natural ingredients will double up for a variety of situations whilst you are away.

Keeping your body and skin hydrated is probably the most important element of healthy travel, along with the best nutritious snacks and meals you can manage. Food ingredients can become skincare lifesavers too!

Take a look at these 5 ingredients and the travel solutions...


  

1. Tea Tree

This essential oil is most commonly known for calming spots. Tea Tree oil is also good to soothe insect bites and its aroma acts as a mild insect repellent. In addition to this, the natural anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory properties of Tea Tree are a useful complement to the contents of a more conventional first aid kit.

Simply pack a ready-to-use tea-tree product such as the Tisserand Tea-Tree Roller Ball in your bag, to have to hand throughout your trip.


  

2. Lemon Eucalyptus [Eucalyptus maculata citriodora]

This type of eucalyptus tree provides an oil which has the power to ward off mosquitoes! To help prevent mosquito bites and other biting insects from eating you alive, try a few of these key items in your travel bag...

2-1 Anti-Mosquito Shampoo & Bodywash, Sunscreen with Insect Repellent and keep your hotel room insect-free with incognito's Room Refresher.


  

3. Coconut

Keeping hydrated both inside and out can be more difficult whilst travelling. The coconut offers a range of uses for the traveller...

Coconut Oil provides the ultimate deep moisturiser for both skin and hair. Choose Raw Extra Virgin Oil to nourish sun-worn hair and as a lip balm.

Coconut water is particularly good in hot weather or whilst trekking about, as it contains naturally occurring electrolytes. For this reason it is also useful for assisting recovery from 'traveller's tummy'.


  

4. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is another highly useful ingredient whilst on holiday and travelling. Aloe vera juice soothes the digestive system and can be useful to calm and rebalance your body from the inside. Try Aqua Coco with Aloe.

There is no better better way to soothe sunburnt skin than pure aloe vera gel. The gel has natural anti-inflammatory properties and also is useful for wound healing. A tube of this Aloe Vera Skin Gel from Aloe Pura, will help complete your kit.


  

5. Healthy Snacks – Dates, Nuts & Seeds

Dates provide you with a highly portable energy boost, along with some insoluble fibre to keep things on an even keel.

A small handful of nuts give sustainable energy to fill the gap and contain minerals for general wellbeing. The best ones are Almonds, Walnuts or Pistachios.

Seeds will help to keep your digestion happy if you are a little congested – just remember to drink plenty of water!

Combine all these things, and you can either make your own snack bites or just buy some off the shelf. Remember to keep your energy levels up by snacking little and often. This will assist in a more smooth transition for your body.
