Hitting the Road? Lavender Travel Sachets & More
Lavender is one of the most versatile essential oils, and can be used in so many ways, even when you’re far from home. We love to take lavender with us when we travel. One of our favorite ways is to use lavender travel sachets. But we have other ideas, as well.
Lavender can be comforting to respiratory issues, soothing to muscle aches and soreness, and help ease headaches, inflammation, and skin irritations. It’s an excellent addition for skin care, as it can calm burns and bug bites, and soothe itching and blemishes.
Lavender essential oil helps quiet stress and anxiety while easing mood swings and exhaustion. Most people find the aroma of lavender to be a relaxing oil to use at bedtime. (Essential 3 oils are GC/MS tested for purity, 100% natural, therapeutic quality and free of pesticides and synthetics.You can find other lavender products on our sister website, Lavender Fields Forever.)
Here are three of our favorite ways to travel with lavender:
1. DIY Lavender Travel Sachet
Sachets are a simple and effective way to keep luggage fresh while you travel. A lavender sachet can be also used in hotel closets or dressers to minimize odors. Fill a small organza or fabric pouch (even a sock will work) with aromatic lavender buds. Give the sachet a squeeze from time to time to release the lavender aroma.
2. Lavender Travel Bathroom Kit:
A 10 ml bottle of Lavender essential oil is within the TSA limits for liquids. Add a few drops of essential oil to unscented lotions, soaps, and other toiletry products. Click here for a quick dilution guide.
3. Multi-use Lavender Aromatherapy Spray:
With that same bottle of lavender essential oil in your bathroom kit, you can pack an empty spray bottle to mix up a lavender spritzer (or pack a pre-made lavender spray). Mix up to 10 drops of lavender essential oil for every 1 ounce of water. Shake well, and use your spritzer as a room or car freshener, linen spritz, or body mist.
Bonus tip: travelling with pets? Lavender hydrosols make a great pet bed spray, and are gentle enough to use with your furry companions. Spray beds lightly with hydrosol to deodorize, and let them air-dry.
Give our lavender travel sachets a try. We’d love to see how far they travel this summer. It would be great to have them travel around the world! Can you take a picture of the sachet at your vacation destination? Then post it on Instagram using the hashtag #2018SachetAroundtheWorld. You can also tag and connect with us on Facebook. This is going to be fun! (And there will be a surprise for one lucky entrant…more about that later.)
