Travel Town is a match and merge puzzle game developed by Magmatic Games, and it’s currently available on iOS and Android platforms. On top of the beautiful sharp graphics and matching sounds, Travel Town comes with an addictive gameplay, that fans of the genre will certainly enjoy.

To get you started on the right foot, we have put together a comprehensive Travel Town beginner’s guide . We will start this guide with explaining the basic mechanics and continue with effective strategies to advance quickly in the game, rebuild the city and help your neighbours. Of course, without forgetting to enjoy the thrill of finding new and better objects as you go merging.

travel town tips

Travel Town is visually similar and has the same mechanics as Merge Mansion , a game that we have covered before here at Level Winner. So if you had the pleasure of playing that game, then you probably won’t have any major problems going through Travel Town.

The game takes place in Travel Town, a beautiful seaside that was ravaged away by a storm. Your main objective is to restore it and help your neighbours who were left with nothing. Meanwhile, you discover new objects. The mechanics of the game consists of mixing matching objects to get better and better objects. You can sell these objects to your neighbours who in exchange will give you smileys among other rewards. Smileys are the in-game currencies in Travel Town, and you will use them to rebuild the town. To start to play you need to use energy. At the beginning you have 100 units of energy in the form of lightning and you must use it wisely to advance levels. But be careful, in between you must pay attention to how you organize yourself. Here I will share with you several tips and strategies to be able to advance quickly in Travel Town.

1. Starting From Scratch And Cleaning Your Place

At first, you will start with little free space to merge. Not only that, but you will also find spaces blocked by objects covered in sand. Do not worry that this is momentary and here you will see how to proceed to optimize your space.

starting from scratch in travel town

These grey objects that you find buried in the sand have to be removed with a matching item. To do this you must take objects out of the bucket and mix until you get the one you are looking for.

Now you may ask: How do I know what I need to mix to get what I’m looking for? Well, at first you will not have major difficulties. Keep looking, you’re on the right track. Once you achieve to unlock the space you will have a little bit more room and be more comfortable.

Pay attention not to miss the opportunity to unlock a space if you have the same item. As you advance in level, more spaces will be freed up to work and you will be able to have a greater variety of objects. You will also be able to see stars with numbers drawn on the sand, these numbers indicate at what level that space is unlocked. But you may have to dig up some grey object from that new place. When the neighbours see what you achieve on the beach, they will add you to the chat group.

travel town chat

There you can keep up-to-date with everything they would like to improve about the city, as well as read pretty funny things apart from the fact that they don’t stop talking in that group.

2. Stay Organized And Save Space

Maintaining order in Travel Town can be crucial and makes the difference between an average player and a pro player. Maintaining order in the first levels is not something very difficult to achieve, since you will only have a couple of objects on the playground. But what happens as you go forward? As you advance in the game you will have a greater variety of objects at your disposal.

Not only that, but you will also have to achieve more complex objects and you will have the board with half-jobs distributed everywhere. So how can you improve this situation?

A good option is to organize them by type , this way you will have more ease when searching for a particular object. For example, you can group the objects that come out of the bucket in one corner, the objects that come out of the picnic basket in another corner, and so on. You can also save space by gathering all the same items , so you will have more free places.

travel town inventory

Another option is to keep rare items, that you are not going to use for the time being, in the inventory. What happens if you follow the previous steps and still fill the sandbox with things? Can’t you keep mixing? Okay, do not worry! In this case, you have two options, one is to sell the objects in exchange for smileys, touching the object you want to sell and then below the currency symbol you can make the sale in exchange for smileys.

Some lower-tier items you will not be able to sell but if you need the space urgently you can remove them. You select the object first and then down in the garbage can. Throwing out the items does not benefit you since the sale value is not as good as the value for which the neighbours pay, but it’s still something. That’s why you have to try not to get to this point.

The inventory will also be enabled, where you can initially store up to 7 objects. You can unlock more slots in exchange for diamonds.

3. Keep Your Neighbours Happy And Successfully Deliver Orders

The neighbours seem to love the items you manage to get from the sand. That’s why they will be constantly requesting new items. Before starting to create an order object, you should review all the orders you have.

This way, you avoid making a very complicated request when you have an object that’s almost ready on your board. Sometimes the commands are very simple, but other times they are a bit more difficult. There may be unique objects , which you will have to find out where or how to get them. It may also be that you order 2 or 3 objects together.

travel town 2 items order

And you have to get them all, they don’t take half orders. This may seem difficult, but as the game progresses you will become a master at delivering double or triple commands. I recommend that you try to start with the most difficult of the 2 items. When you get this object it will turn green, this way it is very easy to identify them and you will know that you have to deliver it.

An ideal scenario is that you group the objects in green in some sectors of the board where you do not move the items much. This is so that you don’t keep mixing it with the same item and you lose the needed level. So you will leave it waiting until you get the others.

Why shouldn’t you overdo the level? If you build higher-level objects, you will spend more energy and later you will not be able to sell them and they will take up space. Also, you will have to start from scratch to build it again and deliver it, since you cannot go back. For example: if a neighbour asks you for a Nautilus shell but you continue mixing until you reach a starfish, then you will not be able to go back and you will have to wait for someone to ask you for that object.

travel town nautilus shell

Another thing that can happen is that you see some requests in grey: when you see this, if you try to open it, it will tell you that you have to go up to the next level to be able to take that order. So first you must level up completing other orders and then you will see what the order is about.

4. Start Little By Little To Buy Buildings And Reform Them

As we mentioned before, smileys are the in-game currencies. You can spend smileys on keys, so you can rebuild the buildings of Travel Town. You have several options to get smileys:

Fulfilling the requests of the neighbours: You will constantly have orders to deliver. Although, some objects will not give you many smileys in return. Some neighbours are willing to pay fortunes for rare objects. But yes, you have to know how to find them.

travel town order

Mixing certain objects: There are some objects such as photos or jewels that, when merged, may reward you smileys. You’ll notice because they will fly on the board, so don’t forget to collect them!

Buying smileys in the store: Some days there are available smileys in the store for purchase. It’s a lazy option and you must pay with diamonds in exchange if you do not want to merge.

Selling objects: Another good option is to sell some items that you have left and that you think you will not need. Once you sell an item, you will see how many smileys you got for that item in return.

Hmm… did you regret selling it? After the sale, you can recover the item by going down where it says undo selling and select the circular arrow. But be careful, once you select something else on the screen, the option to have the object returned to you will disappear.

selling objects in travel town

Opening chests: The majority of the chests have smileys as a reward, and you will be able to get many out of them. But of course, getting chests is not easy. You will have to fulfil orders, level up or rebuild buildings to get them. Once you get the necessary resources you can start upgrading the city. Keep in mind that in this case, you are going to need a pile of wood planks as well as smileys. Later in this guide, we will explain how to get the materials.

5. Squeeze The Juice Out Of Your Resources

The items that allow you to advance in the game faster are the following 3. Don’t forget to take care of your resources because they are the key to success in Travel Town.

Smileys: You need to get the maximum number of smileys to be able to pay for the key to the land that you are acquiring and also for the restorations. Doing this will give you experience points and you will advance in level.

That’s why every time a face item appears on the board, it is recommended not to sell it immediately and keep them in the inventory to mix them and reach the maximum level. This way, you can obtain greater benefits than selling them one by one.

For example: If you only have one smiley and you sell it, they will give you 1 in exchange, but if you have 2, they will give you 3, if you have 4 they will give you 7, if you mix 8 they will give you 15, and if you reach the maximum level of the item (level 5) which is 16 will give you 32 smileys. This is a lot of difference to make if you are patient and wait until you have the maximum level before selling it.

Energies: the energies will allow you to continue loading objects on the board, they renew themselves from time to time, but, indeed, they are also spent quickly when you need to deliver an object. That’s why every time an energy item appears, like the smileys, it is recommended to keep them in the inventory to mix them and reach the maximum level. This way you can get more benefit from it, for an energy item at the maximum level, you will get 100 units of energy.

travel town energy at maximum level

A tip to get more energy is to take a good look at the sign that appears when you run out, since sometimes to the right of the option to pay with diamonds it gives you the option to see a commercial in exchange for 25 energy.

travel town video ad

And because they are short commercials, I think it’s worth watching the commercial instead of spending diamonds on energy.

Diamonds: Diamonds are definitely the most precious and that’s why you have to avoid wasting them. In Travel Town, you can use it for almost everything. For example, you can skip the waiting time of some items with diamonds, but is it worth it? Perhaps, you can be patient with the wait and use the diamonds to exchange them for space in the inventory or get energy at good prices.

Check the offers daily, there are days that for a few diamonds you can get energy packages or chests. And just like energies and smileys, diamonds can be pooled together to make the most profit from selling them. Don’t forget that every time you discover a new item, it will appear in the collection book as a gift.

travel town collection

You must open it and inside it, you will find a diamond. So every day at the end of playing you can go to the book to continue completing the collections.

6. Permanent Objects

Permanent objects are those from which you can obtain objects in exchange for energy. These objects cannot be sold and you can take them to their maximum level. The higher its level, the better objects you will obtain from it. Keep in mind that of the objects that you can get from inside in exchange for energy, you will not be able to select them since it will give you a random object. Permanent items have a cooldown time that depends on the item.

As much as you have energy, you will not be able to remove objects infinitely. When the inside is finished, a clock will appear indicating how long you must wait until you can get objects again. There are times when you will be lucky and it will give you some higher-level item. Here are some permanent items that you will find in the first levels: Beach Bucket: This is the first permanent item that you get in the game. It is formed from buckets and you can take it to the maximum level, which is 9. From here you can obtain pebbles, stones, sandcastles and seashells, among others. When it is at its maximum level you will be able to obtain the mysterious letter from here but to be honest it will not be easy to obtain one.

travel town beach bucket

With the objects that come out of the bucket, you can complete the Shells and the Sand Castles book collection. Picnic Basket: This basket, like the bucket, is one of the first permanent items that you obtain and that requires energy to deliver objects.

travel town picnic basket

From here you can obtain spoons, olives among others. And you will be able to complete the Picnic Food series and the Cutlery Tools series. Jewellery display: When you take the jewellery display to level 4 you will have a jewellery box. It is a permanent item which means that it will remain on the board forever, not only will you be able to create beautiful jewels with what is inside it but it also has a particularity.

It is that this jewellery box does not use energy to generate objects! Which means that you will have endless items? Well, yes and no, because if it has a cooldown time. You can place the jewellery box in the middle of the board and you can see how the objects jump out.

In case you have a full workspace, I recommend that you keep the jewellery box surrounded by items. This way, neither of the will pop from inside, occupying the place you need on the board.

travel town jewellery

Once they stop coming out, you will have to wait for the recharge time to expire. If you need to make a jewel and you don’t want to wait for the recharge time, you can also use diamonds to skip the time. A trick for when they give you a reward jewellery box and you have one on the board: first you empty the one you have on the board until the clock mark appears indicating that you have to wait.

Next step, you lower the new jewel box to the board and empty it too. Once the 2 are with the cooldown clock, you merge them. This will not only give you a higher tier jewel box but also resets the time so you can empty it for the third time. 

7. Reward Items

Crates: Crates have 5 levels. Inside the crates, you can get smileys or  diamonds. When you get one, either for a level-up reward or for having completed a level. You can open it or you can also save it and wait till get one of the same level to be able to merge them.

Whichever option you choose, when you want to open it you have to select them and choose the option to open there will tell you how long you have to wait. The higher the level of the crate, the greater the rewards, but also the longer it will take to open.

travel town crate

Energy crate: The crates contain only energy inside so nothing that comes out of it can surprise you. They are usually achieved by levelling up or completing an order. These crates cannot be levelled up as they are at their maximum level when they appear. Toolbox: Toolboxes are boxes full of tools where you can find everything from screws and wood to cement and bricks for construction. They are crucial for building upgrades. Not only that, but they are quite difficult to get, usually given to you as a reward for hard-to-complete orders.

So I recommend that you keep everything that comes out of the toolbox well until you can get the maximum level of each item. So when you manage to build, for example, a brick wall or a concrete mixer, it will be kept in the inventory until you use it in some upgrade.

travel town tool items

These tool items will be saved in the second tab of the inventory. So you should not worry about them taking up space. You can go check what materials you have stored at any time.

8. Special Items Are Difficult To Get

Joker: The jokers are rarer items than diamonds. And they have the peculiarity of being able to duplicate any common object you have in the playground. If you’re lucky enough to get one, I don’t recommend using it to combine with a pebble.

Save it or use it to combine with an object that has a very high tier level. This way you will save a lot of time. You also have the option to buy it in the store in exchange for diamonds. So it would be a good purchase. Bubbled items: Bubbled items are items that appear inside a bubble when you are creating an object. These objects are trapped and you will not be able to use them unless you pay their reward in diamonds. Its price varies depending on the difficulty of the item. It may be that you are not interested in taking out of the bubble in exchange for some diamonds. But as soon as an item that you need appears, this may be worth spending diamonds on.

travel town bubbled

Be aware, you cannot doubt it for a long time since the bubble will disappear in a short time. Don’t worry if you decide not to pay with diamonds, the bubbles always leave you something in return, which can be a smiley, energy or even a diamond.

Mysterious letter: Just as its name says, this letter is mysterious, it is rumoured that it has a map inside and that it takes you to some hidden place in Travel Adventure, have you got it yet? Do not worry that as the levels progress they will come to your hands. As a suggestion, you should start by getting letters out of the bucket. Mysterious fossil: If there was something more mysterious than the mysterious letter, it is surely this fossil. It is much more difficult to get, but believe me, it has a very good reward.

9. Take Part In Special Events

Do not forget to complete the special events, they are a good opportunity to gather resources. Daily challenge: It is a daily event that will appear as an order on the top right and when you open it you will be able to see the tasks to complete. This order, unlike the others, has a time limit that you cannot exceed. You can see the time remaining from the order or when opening it as well.

travel town daily challenge

You can also see the counter, for example, if it says 0/3, it means that you have 0 tasks performed out of 3. As you complete them, it will indicate 1/3, 2/3, and so on until it reaches 3/3. Completing it will give you the reward indicated in the order. Wildlife sanctuary: it is a special event to which you are going to be invited to travel to the jungle. Precisely to a sanctuary, where you can feed and rescue tigers, cut dry or fallen trees, and plant new and healthy ones.

travel town welcome

During our stay in the sanctuary, you have to try to complete as many requests as possible. Here there are no smileys as a reward for orders. But in exchange for completing an order, they will give you a paw token.

travel town sanctuary

As you collect the paws you will advance in level, each time you reach a new level you will need more tokens to complete it. Once the time of the stay finishes, they will give you a diploma with the maximum level you reached and with it the rewards. The levels that you can reach range from level 1 to 8.

In the sanctuary, you will have a different energy, which has the same functionality as in the rest of the game but it is blue. When you run out of energy, you can go out and wait for it to recharge or you can also buy it with diamonds.

You can also collect smileys that will appear from time to time when you mix some items, it may be that smileys appear and you can collect those, a tip to take advantage of here is that if you see that our time in the jungle is running out and they are going to be left items, the ideal is that you can sell them before leave. Because once the time is up you won’t be able to come back for anything from the place.

travel town paw

The mechanic is very similar to what you’ve been doing. Only that here your mission, apart from completing the orders, is to rescue the tigers that are in the jungle. To do this, the first thing you must do is get items from the worker’s hut in exchange for energy. From here you can get tools, seeds and feeding bottles.

How to rescue your first tiger? The tigers are lost in the middle of the jungle but to get to them you must first cut down the fallen trees. You do this by taking some items of tools to the maximum level until you get a chainsaw. With it, you can choose the place to weed. Note that there are two types of trees to cut, one is the dry one that you will have to cut 2 times, so you will need 2 chainsaws.

travel town feeding bottle

And the other one is the stump for which you’re going to have to cut only once. Both will give you lodges in return. Once you enter the jungle you will find items in grey covered by the undergrowth, to unlock it you must get a matching item. When you go into the jungle, you may find a baby tiger in grey and to rescue it you will need to have another one. To get one you have to take a feeding bottle to the maximum level, then you double-tap it and a baby tiger will appear.

Once you got the baby tiger now with it, you can rescue the one you found in the jungle.

travel town baby tiger

How do you plant new and healthy trees? Once you were able to remove the dry trees, the idea of ​​the sanctuary is that you reforest it with healthy trees. To do this you must start by mixing the seeds until you bring them to their maximum level. When you manage to have a Sundari tree, it will provide you with seeds and flowers without having to spend energy in return.

travel town title

As soon as you finish don’t forget to claim your reward.

10. Be Persistent And Be Patient

As you progress in the game, you can achieve more complex items. Or maybe you use up energy faster. But don’t get discouraged, you can close the game and come back when you have full energy. Some items will take a few days to form but in the meantime, you will always have some other easier items to deliver. And when you have a permanent item in cooldown, relax and do other things in Travel Town.

That was our last piece of advice, and with that we conclude our Travel Town beginner’s guide. Hopefully, the tips and tricks we shared in this article will help you to advance in the best way until you complete your collection of objects and restore the city. If you have discovered any other tips or tricks during your gameplay, we would be happy to hear from you! Feel free to drop us a line in the comments below!

Step3: Move the item that you want to put aside beside the free producer.

Step4: Sell the item.

Step5: Immediately undo the selling. The item will be put on the top left part. You can see the number is increasing if there were any of them already. Or you will see it above if that was the first.

Step6: You can sell and undo immediately items how many you need. While you have an automatic free producer. I usually have like 15, but I had once around 50.

Step7: If you need items from above, of course, it is hard to take back, e.g. you get a tool box, it will be placed at the end of the line. If you get card package, it will be place at the first place.

So if you need any item from the line, you need some space on the field, you take them back there and place them at the end of the line.

How to Get Free Energy in Travel Town | Tips & Guide

Travel Town is a colorful merger game that takes place in an exotic setting. By combining matching items, you can help the Travel Town locals, upgrade buildings, and unravel the story behind the idyllic location. There’s only one issue—you have limited energy to do all that.

Luckily, there are ways to replenish your energy in Travel Town and prolong your enjoyment. Here’s how to get more energy for your Travel Town adventures.

Note: Travel Town is available on both Play Store and App Store !

How do I get more energy in my Travel Town game?

If you end up without energy in Travel Town , you can’t progress through the game further. The obvious option to refill your energy is to exit the game and simply wait for the energy meter to refill, which will take quite a long time. But you have other options, too.

First, you can watch an ad to get some of the energy back. Of course, this solution isn’t really ideal (who wants to watch ads anyway?). However, it is a free and effortless way to continue playing for a while. You should keep in mind that getting energy via ad-watching is limited, though. After a certain number of ads, you won’t be able to watch any more until the next day.

Next, if you’ve built up a decent stash of Diamonds, you can simply use those to purchase more energy. You can earn a smaller amount of Diamonds through regular gameplay or purchase bundles in the in-game store.

Finally, you can get free energy refills from Travel Town events. The daily challenges also have some enticing rewards, including energy crates. Note that the better you rank in a challenge or event, the better rewards you’ll receive.

Extra tips for Travel Town

What is the power boost in travel town .

The Power Boost represents a special boost that you can activate to increase the odds of getting more valuable items. When you activate the boost, you’ll spend more energy, but your chances of getting high-value rewards will skyrocket. A notification will appear once the boost is active, which is quite handy because you don’t want to leave the boost on unintentionally and drain all of your energy!

What is the Splitter in Travel Town ?

The Splitter is a special tool that can, as the name implies, split items. This can come in quite handy for certain tasks because with a Splitter, you gain access to previous-level items by splitting higher-level ones. In other words, you can build a better strategy to complete your tasks while spending the least amount of energy.

15 Best Essential Oils for Travel

15 Best Essential Oils for Travel - Don't Mess with Mama

Got a vacation or trip coming up? Stay well on the go with these 15 best essential oils for travel – including natural remedies for jet lag, long car rides, immune support, sleep and more.

Going on a trip but aren’t sure what essential oils to bring? I’ve rounded up the 15 best essential oils to bring on flight, road trip, cruise ship, and other travel adventures to stay healthy on the go. You can keep your oils in your backpack, purse, carry on, or checked luggage.

These oils can help with everything from tummy troubles to jet lag to immune support and so much more – and a great addition to your arsenal of natural remedies on the go.

1. Lavender

Lavender essential oil is a must-have for travel. It’s great for sleep, relaxation, and even skin issues (like spending too much time in the sun, dry skin, or the occasional zit). Put a drop of lavender oil on a sleep mask or put a drop in your palms and then rub your hands together and inhale. The scent of lavender can be so relaxing and help promote restful sleep – great for a long flight to prevent jet lag.

Thieves essential oil is a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils. It’s great for helping to support a healthy immune system. Add a drop or two to a warm cup of water when you’re on the go to boost your immune system, or even put a drop or two on an airplane tray and wipe down with a wet napkin to keep surfaces clean.

3. Purification or Citronella

Purification essential oil is a blend of citronella, lemongrass, lavandin, rosemary, melaleuca (tea tree) and myrtle essential oils. Citronella, in particular, is known for keeping bugs at bay. You can use it with some coconut oil while on a hike in the woods. It’s also excellent to freshen the air from cigarette smoke and other odors in rental cars or hotel rooms.

4. PanAway or Wintergreen

PanAway essential oil is a blend made with helichrysum, wintergreen, clove and peppermint. It’s great for soothing and reliving tired muscles during and after a long car ride or airplane flight. You can also use it on tired feet, calves, neck or anywhere you need some muscle relief.

4. Tea Tree

Tea tree essential oil is great for cleaning on the go. It’s naturally purifying and cleansing. So you can add to a spray bottle with some water to clean airplane trays, toilet seats, hotel countertops, car rentals, etc. while on the go. You can even use it as an air freshener.

5. Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus essential oil is great for opening up your nose or your chest (if you’re feeling stuffy). Use a drop or two along with some coconut oil, and use as a chest rub. It can also be used in the shower to create a spa-like environment. Just add eucalyptus to small spray bottle and add water. Mist the shower before you get in and enjoy the aroma.

6. Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil is fantastic for digestion. Put a drop in a large cup of water and drink to settle an upset stomach. It’s also very energizing. Put a drop in your hand and rub together and inhale, or even rub on your temples (stay near the hairline because the scent is so strong it may sting the eyes if you go too close) when you’ve got head tension.

7. Ginger or DiGize blend

DiGize essential oil is a blend  made with tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, fennel, lemongrass, anise and patchouli essential oils. It’s the best for settling an upset stomach from too much junk food, long car rides, cruises (getting used to those rocky boats), or even relief from high elevation. Take a drop under the tongue for fast relief. Ginger essential oil is also great for stomach relief and digestion. You can put a drop of Ginger in your hands, rub together, and inhale the scent.

Lemon essential oil is uplifting and when combined with peppermint essential oil in a diffuser it can help to energize and get focused, which is great when you’ve got a meeting right after a flight. Add a drop of lemon oil to a glass of water instead of using lemon juice.

9. Bergamot

Bergamot essential oil is a citrus oil that’s uplifting and great to get energized after a long flight or car ride. Combine it with Ylang Ylang in the diffuser to lift your mood.

Valor essential oil is a blend made with black spruce, blue tansy, camphor wood, geranium, and frankincense. It’s great for calming and soothing those travel jitters – like long car rides, airplane flights, or anytime you have occasional anxiousness. Just rub a few drops along your wrists and neck, and even put a drop in your hands and rub together and inhale the aroma.

11. Peace & Calming

Peace & Calming essential oil is a blend of ylang ylang, orange, tangerine, patchouli, and blue tansy. It’s the go-to oil blend for feeling zen and calm after a long day of travel. Put it on the kids or yourself to unwind. It’s also great for those long days at the theme park too.

12. Rosemary

Rosemary essential oil smells herbaceous and works well for focus and mental clarity. If you’re on deadline or need to be on point for a meeting after a long day of travel, reach for rosemary. You can simply put a drop or two in your hands, rub together and inhale the scent. The aroma helps to perk you up and get you on task. It’s also great in the diffuser too.

13. Frankincense

Frankincense essential oil works well for emotional balance and grounding. If you’re feeling the jitters about a flight or your trip, this is the oil to bring you back and get you grounded. Apply a couple of drops to the temples and rub in your hands to smell the aroma. Frankincense is also great for immune support. Just put a drop or two in cup of water or even on your tongue.

14. Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang essential oil works great for lifting your mood, which is great after a long, hectic day of travel. Just apply a drop on your neck and on your wrists and wear like perfume. You can also put a drop or two on your travel bed for a romantic night in with your sweetie.

15. Roman Chamomile

Roman Chamomile essential oil is like a chill pill in a bottle. Combine a drop with a drop of Lavender and apply to the temples and even rub in your hands and inhale. The aroma is relaxing and promotes sleep. It works well for kids too.

Can You Take Essential Oils on a Plane?

I’ve traveled a lot with essential oils in tow, and yes you can definitely bring your oils on a plane. You can check them in your bag (just be sure to put them in a resealable clear bag to prevent any leaking in flight) or you can carry them on. Put them in a quart-sized resealable clear bag to go through airport security. Some airports will ask you to take them out for inspection, while others wont.

I’ve never personally had any issues carrying my oils and taking them through airport security. I’ve traveled with up to 30 bottles of oil (5 and 15 ml sizes) on my carry-on with no issues. But if you have a particular oil you cannot live without consider putting an extra bottle in your checked bag to be safe.

Plane Etiquette

If you have an oil that you would like to use on an airplane, put them on before boarding, or put a small amount in a diffuser necklace or in your hand. You can even prepare wipes or diluted sprays ahead of time. Remember that not everyone is used to the scent of essential oils so avoid those that can be really strong like oregano and patchouli. Lavender oil is usually a safe bet.

Traveling by Car

Keep a small kit in the car by putting your most-used oils in 5/8 dram vials. You can put this in the glove compartment, or in a seat pocket. You’ll want easy access to your most-used oils while you’re on the road.

Feeling sleepy? Put some Peppermint oil on a cotton ball and leave it in your air vents. Of course, if the driver is feeling very tired, it’s also probably a good idea to stop driving and take a break.

Essential Oils in Cold Climates

Whether you are sledding through Alaska or skiing in Colorado, you can still use your essential oils, but there are a few things remember if you want to get the most out of them.

With cold oils you can open them, and even use them if they will flow. But some cold oils will convert to a more solid state – usually not truly “frozen” but crystallized to various forms. Hold them in your hands (or put it in your bra) for for a few minutes to gently heat the oils to your body temperature I’ve found that Rose and Myrrh, in particular, tend to do this more often.

Essential Oils in Warm or Hot Climates

Be sure to keep essential oils out of direct sunlight. Heat can reduce the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. As long as you keep them in a cool, dry place (even in a warm climate), the oils should be fine.

Top Tips for Traveling with Essential Oils

  • You can take standard vials of airplanes, just make sure you put them in a sealed bag.
  • If you are traveling with bottles you mixed yourself, a good idea is to label them, for your reference as well as through the airport security.
  • Store your oils in a cool, dry place and if needed gently warm up oils in your hands.

Hi Tracey! I’m just trying to figure out how many drops of oils to put in the 2ml bottles for my purse and do you dilute them? Thanks, Donna

It depends on the recipe – but I usually do about 5-10 drops in a 2 ml bottle.

Best Essential Oils for Travel (and How to Use Them)

travel town essential oil

In this Article

travel town essential oil

From combating jet lag to easing the itch of bug bites, these three essential oils are, um, essential  for travel. Whether I’m exploring near home or traveling halfway around the world, these are the best essential oils for travel.

I have an MBA (and not an MD), so the advice in this article is based on my personal experience and how I use essential oils for travel. It should in no way be perceived as medical advice since I’m clearly lacking the letters required on my diploma to be a physician.

They hit without warning, and they don’t care if I’m at home, across town, or exploring the world. Maybe there is a slight ringing in my ears, or maybe I have trouble reading all of the letters on my phone screen. But within 30 minutes, I can’t move without feeling like my brain is slamming into my skull. And even the faintest ray of light causes a pain that feels like a spike being driven through my head.

If you’re a fellow migraine sufferer, the scenario above is likely familiar. And, if you’re like me, you’re willing to try just about anything that kicks your migraine to the curb and gets you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

That’s why I eagerly tried essential oils  for migraines about ten years ago when they were recommended as an alternative to an emergency room visit for a shot of narcotics or 24 hours in bed in a pitch black room with prescription pills to get rid of a migraine.

They worked like magic!

A few drops of either lavender essential oil  or peppermint essential oil at the onset of a migraine has worked wonders ever since, and essential oils are a welcome alternative to expensive prescriptions and painful injections.

From there, I started incorporating more and more essential oils into everyday life, from beauty regimens to cleaning supplies. And when on the road, these are my recommended  essential oils for travel .

Sage Advice:  Peppermint is a “hot” oil. This means it can only be applied to the skin when diluted in a carrier oil like jojoba oil, olive oil, coconut oil, or sweet almond oil. If not diluted properly, applying peppermint oil can cause skin irritation.

Choosing the Best Essential Oils

Before we jump into my favorite essential oils for travel, let’s talk about essential oil brands. 

Like many people adding essential oils into their lives, I started with Young Living and doTerra essential oils. While I believe both companies sell quality essential oils, I quickly grew tired of the ordering process, shipping fees, and other hassles associated with these multi-level marketing companies.

That’s why I was so delighted to discover  Rocky Mountain Oils , and why I’ve been a raving fan for several years. Rocky Mountain Oils offers the same high-quality essential oil products with more affordable shipping fees and zero MLM drama.

Here are a few reasons I’m a loyal customer:

  • High quality . Rocky Mountain Oils tests the purity and quality of every essential oil it sells, offering only therapeutic grade oils.
  • Focus on sustainability . As a company focused on the healing properties of the earth’s flowers, grasses, fruits, roots, trees, and leaves, Rocky Mountain Oils is also dedicated to responsible sourcing and sustainable business practices.
  • Free shipping . Get free shipping on all US orders of $25 and up.
  • Rewards program . Called Club Oil’ty, the Rocky Mountain Oils rewards program allows you to collect points toward $5, $10, and $15 off coupons.
  • Satisfaction guarantee . If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, Rocky Mountain Oils will refund your money without any hassle.
  • Anti-MLM . The founder of Rocky Mountain Oils hates multi-level marketing as much as I do!

So now let’s jump into the best essential oils for travel!

1. Lavender, the Most Versatile Essential Oil for Travel

Distilled from the flowers of the  lavender plant ,  lavender oil  is the queen of all essential oils. It’s been used for medicinal purposes for more than 2,500 years, and if you can only carry one essential oil when you travel, this is the best essential oil for travel!

Best Uses for Lavender Essential Oil

  • Reduce stress or anxiety . Flight canceled? Highway at a standstill?  Just inhale  lavender essential oil  or apply a couple of drops to your temples or wrists and immediately feel a calm wash over you.
  • Battle insomnia or jet lag . If you are  too excited to sleep  or are struggling to adjust to the local time zone,  lavender essential oil  can help. Simply inhale or apply to your temples or wrists as above. Or add a few drops of lavender essential oil to a travel diffuser at bedtime.
  • Heal minor burns . A drop of  lavender essential oil  on a minor burn minimizes pain, reduces redness, and helps the burn heal.
  • Clean and heal cuts . In addition to its healing properties, lavender has antibiotic, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties. Apply a drop of  lavender essential oil  to the cut to help stop the bleeding, clean and disinfect the wound, and speed up healing.
  • Battle nausea or motion sickness . New foods, different time zones, planes, trains, and automobiles — travel can bring nausea and motion sickness. Fight back with a drop of  lavender essential oil  behind the ears or by your navel.
  • Soothe aching muscles . Did you walk a marathon exploring your destination? Hike longer or higher than usual? Add a few drops of  lavender essential oil  to a bath and soak the soreness away.
  • Strike back at headaches .  And, of course,  lavender essential oil  can help with headaches, from the garden variety to a debilitating migraine.

Sage Advice :  Provided you follow the  current TSA rules  regarding liquids, you are allowed to carry your essential oils on an airplane. Look for a padded carrier to safely store your most essential of essential oils in your purse, backpack, or another carry-on. I like this  padded essential oil case , because it’s just the right size for my essential oils for travel.

2. Lemon, a Bright Essential Oil for Travel

Lemon essential oil  is made from the rind of the fruit. Its fresh scent helps brighten spirits on a dreary day, soothes sore throats, fights allergies, and is my go-to remedy for insect bites.

Best Uses for Lemon Essential Oil

  • Address acid indigestion and heartburn .  Add a drop of  lemon oil  to a glass of water and drink to help your tummy troubles disappear.
  • Comfort a sore throat . Add a few drops of  lemon essential oil  to hot water and honey and sip to reduce sore throat pain.
  • Attack allergies and hayfever . Exciting, new destinations can also mean new plants, animals, and allergens. Inhaling  lemon essential oil  or applying it to the soles of the feet helps with seasonal allergies, asthma, and related respiratory issues.
  • Bid farewell to bugs and their bites .  Mosquitos, fleas, and other bugs hate the smell of  lemon essential oil , but if you are bitten, one drop on the bite immediately removes the itchiness.

3. Sage, an Essential Oil with Cleansing Properties

Beyond being my namesake herb, Sage has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. Native Americans and Mediterraneans have used sage to treat ailments like coughs, asthma, inflammation, and digestive disorders.

Sage is a fresh-smelling essential oil with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. This makes it the perfect essential oil for travel, especially when everyone is on heightened alert for germs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Best Uses for Sage Essential Oil

  • Keep germs at bay . A medical study showed that sage essential oil was effective in preventing diseases caused by E. coli and other germs.
  • Soothe sore muscles .  If you walked a marathon while sightseeing or tackled a hiking trail that was more than you imagined, soothe sore muscles by adding a few drops of sage essential oil to a carrier oil — like jojoba oil , fractionated coconut oil , or almond oil — or lotion and massaging it into your sore spots.
  • Sharpen your mind . Sage essential oil has been linked to improved memory and cognition. Plus, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of sage essential oil is believed to help prevent further progression of dementia. 
  • Prevent cavities. Using a mouthwash that includes a few drops of sage essential oil can kill the germs that cause cavities.

Sage Advice:   Unlike lavender and lemon essential oils, sage essential oil should not be applied directly to the skin. Always dilute sage essential oil by adding five or six drops to one ounce of a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil , jojoba oil , or almond oil before applying to your skin.

4. Immune Strength, an Essential Oil Blend

A blend of clove bud , cinnamon bark , lemon , orange , oregano , mandarin , thyme , rosemary , nutmeg , ginger root , and eucalyptus essential oils, Immune Strength has natural disinfecting and cleansing properties.

Sage Advice:  Immune Strength is similar to the Thieves essential oil blend made by Young Living.

Best Uses for Immune Strength Essential Oil Blend

  • Boost your immunity .  Apply Immune Strength roll-on to your neck, wrists, or inside of your elbows before boarding a plane, train, or entering another crowded area to help keep germs away.
  • Clean and disinfect . Sanitize surfaces like airplane tray tables, public tables and chairs, and other areas by combining 30 to 40 drops of Immune Strength in a 4-oz glass spray bottle with 2 Tbsp witch hazel and 1 tsp fractionated coconut oil .

Frequently Asked Questions About Traveling with Essential Oils

Can you take essential oils on a plane.

Yes, provided you follow the  current TSA rules regarding liquids, you can take essential oils on an airplane. 

What are the best essential oils for jet lag?

My favorite essential oil for jet lag is lavender essential oil . Breathe in the oil directly from the bottle, apply a drop to your temples or wrists, or add a few drops of lavender oil to a travel diffuser just before you retire for the evening.

Other great essential oils for jet lag include cedarwood (inhale directly from the bottle or apply a drop to your pressure points), lemongrass  (inhale or apply to pressure points), and peppermint  (apply diluted via a roll-on applicator when you need a burst of energy).

What are the best essential oils for travel sickness?

Whether you’re battling nausea or motion sickness, lavender essential oil can bring fast relief. Simply apply a drop of lavender oil behind each ear or by your navel.

Other great essential oils for travel sickness include ginger root  (add a drop to water or soda water) and peppermint  or spearmint  (add a drop to a cup of tea or mix with lotion and rub into the soles of your feet).

What are the best essential oils for flying anxiety?

My go-to essential oil for flying anxiety is lavender. Either inhale the fragrant oil or apply a few drops of lavender essential oil to your temples or wrists and feel its calming effect wash over you.

12 thoughts on “best essential oils for travel (and how to use them)”.

Amazing article…totally agree with you thanks for sharing the article with everyone..

I heard how helpful essential oils are but I didn’t know a lot of this information. We use lavender on our son to help him sleep at night but I didn’t know all the other things. The tip for itching mosquitoe bites is great. I have sensitive skin so I cannot use a lot of products. I will be looking into these oils.

I have sensitive skin, too, and just one drop of lemon oil mixed into my lotion does wonders to remove all kinds of itching, from bug bites to poison ivy. (And sadly, I’m on the tail end of a battle with poison ivy right now.)

I’ve never heard of the World Traveler oil – but I use Lemon and Lavender all the time when I travel! I also have a balm from Badger Balm that’s full of lemon and orange and rosemary that I use to help with jetlag!

World Traveler is what I call a blend that helps keeps germs at bay, so it’s not too surprising you haven’t heard of it! 🙂 Your balm sounds like good stuff!

Love the recipe for the World Traveller! Since I hate to take pills or use some chemical medication, I really find this post very inspiring. Also since the bottles are so small you can fit them even in your purse. A trio of lifesavers, for sure!

I’m like you and always prefer to pursue all natural options before resulting to pills or prescriptions. That’s what makes me such a fan of essential oils!

I always use lavender. I can’t live without it. It’s great for insomnia which I have a severe case of lol

Oh, yes! Me, too. It’s like magic!

Looks like some great essential oil blends to try! I’m not travelling anytime soon but these will be useful, I love lavender and lemon.

Let me know how they work for you!

Awesome post, this is great information on my three favorite oils. I always have them in my purse especially Thieves since I work in a hospital.

Essential oils are becoming a popular alternative in the world of personal wellness. Many health conscious men and women trend to go back to the fundamentals of nature, making aromatherapy one of the fastest growing fields in alternative medicine ¹ .

Essential oils are thought to have some rather powerful medicinal and therapeutic results. Many individuals use them at home on a daily basis. It’s no wonder you don’t want to give that up when going on a trip.

For me, essential oils are an indispensable part of my travel kit . Not only do they smell great and help to freshen up a hotel room, but they also have a host of other benefits.

Lavender oil, for example, is known for its calming properties and can be helpful if you’re feeling stressed or anxious. Peppermint oil, on the other hand, can help to relieve headaches and nausea. And tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial and can be used to disinfect surfaces or treat minor cuts and scrapes. So whether you’re looking to boost your mood or keep your skin healthy while on the road, essential oils are a must-have!

5 Best Essential Oils to Travel With

Therapeutic essential oils can enhance the mind, body and soul. They also support attitude and emotions . While travelling, you need support in all those areas.

Whenever we travel, I make sure I’ve packed these 5 favorite essential oils:

lavender essential oil bottle

Lavender oil from Plant Therapy Get it Here

Lavender essential oil is a staple that every household should have on hand. It is a very universal oil that you can use in many ways even when away from home .

Many individuals are using lavender oil in different areas of their life already. It truly is one of the most versatile essential oils available. Many call it the “Swiss Army Knife” of oils.  It is good for just about anything, from soothing skin after sun exposure , to sleep and relaxation, or  first aid  on minor cuts and bruises. Use lavender in a carrier oil for a soothing back massage to aid pain and inflammation. The lavender oil will help to relax the muscles and ease tension. Lavender also helps keep bugs away and you can use it in a DIY bug repellent spray .

If you only bring one oil on your trip, I recommend it is lavender!

Peppermint essential oil

Peppermint Essential Oil Get it here

Peppermint essential oil is a very fresh oil that you can use for nausea , upset stomach, sea sickness or motion sickness. It can also increase mood and energy.

Inhaling essential oils provides both physical and mental advantages. Take a quick sniff straight out of the bottle to uplift your spirits or make your tummy feel less queasy. You can also use Peppermint oil topically to fight headaches that may arise during travel. I always use peppermint oil to fight the tiredness that comes with jet lag or a change in time zones.

Peppermint is a great oil to bring in a roll-on bottle or personal inhaler as well. Roller bottles allow for safe, quick and easy application, especially when treating a headache.

Frankincense Oil Get It Here

Traveling can be tough on the skin, so I like to pack an extra dose of Frankincense essential oil to add into my nightly skin care and facial care routine. It protects your skin and gently encourages healthy skin cell production. I also use it to keep on top of age spots and wrinkles.

If you tend to get nervous or anxious during travel, Frankincense oil can calm the spirits and aid you in feeling more secure while away from home. Some people also swear by Frankincense essential oil for headaches – whether you have stress related, tension headaches, or a full-blown migraine.

tea tree oil

Tea Tree Essential Oil from Plant Therapy Get It Here

Tea tree essential oil is usable in a lot of diverse ways. It can help in cases of bug bites or infections from scrapes or cuts . It’s also a great remedy for acne, pimples and blackheads that may appear due to travel-related stressors such as dry air, indoor air, or too much caffeine.

Tea tree oil also supports a healthy immune system . Inhale it as preventative maintenance, to keep your immune protection firing at full force. You may be exposed to crowded rooms or confined small spaces with more germs around than you’d like to see!

lemon essential oil

Lemon oil Get It Here

To complete your set of top 5 essential oils for travel, I recommend you include lemon essential oil. It is detoxifying and uplifting, and you can use it to disinfect and clean any surfaces you’re about to touch where you might be worried about the spreading of germs. Lemon essential oil is also great for belly aches and indigestion, plus it can alleviate nervousness. Using lemon essential oil during travel can lower stress and complement your feel-good vibe. It’s a very happy, positive and uplifting oil.

If you’re traveling to a sunny destination, be aware that citrus oils are phototoxic , so please ensure no sun exposure within 24 hours of applying lemon oil topically.

How to Travel with Essential Oils

There are a few things you can do to help keep your oils safe and organized as you travel . Also, a few new & creative ways to use your oils on-the-go. Let me show you my tricks!

essential oils roll-on carrying case

This Hard Top Carrying Case fits up to 10 Essential Oil Bottles or Roll-On Bottles Get It Here

To start, I recommend you use a hard-top carrying case ( such as this one here ) for your essential oils. As opposed to its soft-top sister styles, these hard-top carrying cases are made to endure more impact while keeping the oils protected and safe. You don’t want to risk your oils while you’re on the go or your luggage may thrown around by airport staff.

The hard-top carrying cases are also super handy for easy access . You’ll always know where your kit of oils is and won’t have random bottles of oil rolling around in your luggage.

personal inhalers for essential oils

Prepare your Personal Aromatherapy Inhalers ahead of time Get It Here

If your trip is a short weekend getaway or business trip, prepare yourself a set of personal inhalers so you can leave the main oil bottles at home. I prefer to travel as light as possible!

Having the inhalers ready also means you don’t have to worry about diluting or diffusing your oils when in a rush.

compact mini diffuser for travel

If you like to diffuse your oils, especially at night, there are some nifty small-sized aromatherapy diffusers that pack easily and lightly for travel, like this Mini Portable Diffuser here .

Its compact, lightweight, and easy to operate! Enjoy your favorite essential oils anywhere you go.

taking essential oils on an airplane

Taking essential oils on an airplane is subject to liquid restrictions.

If your travel plans include airplanes, airports and flying, know that you can only take what will fit into the 1 quart-sized zip lock bag for liquids in your carry-on   ² . All carry-on liquids must be under 100 mL each, and as a total be shown in the clear 1 quart plastic bag when going through security. This clear plastic bag allows for 1 quart (= around 946 mL) of liquids in your carry-on, divided up between any liquids, aerosols, gels, creams, or pastes you may also wish to carry with you. Discount airlines may have stricter rules ³ .

There really are no issues traveling with oils, since most bottles are 10 ml – 30 ml in size.

For easiest use while on-the-go, pack personal inhalers or rollers to carry in your purse or carry-on luggage.

In your checked luggage , you can have as many oils as you wish or need. There are no further restrictions in regards to amounts, size, or total amounts for the checked bag(s). I have a zippered case and I travel with up to 30 oils in my checked luggage at any given time.

TIP: Put a piece of electrical tape around each bottle topper to secure them from leakage.

travel bug set of essential oil roll-ons

Best roll-on set for travelling with kids Get It Here

Travel Bug is a set of pre-diluted roll-on essential oil blends designed to keep your little ones healthy and happy during any trip! With this set, you’ll have a roller bottle ready for many of the most common kids’ ailments.

Aromatherapy has made essential oils popular for a wide number of uses. People don’t want to leave their holistic wellness behind when traveling.

Pack an easy aromatherapy kit for your travels and store it in a cute case for easy access. Using essential oils while on a trip or cruise immediately makes me feel like a piece of home is here with me. I love using oils on the go!

If you’re just starting out, know that it doesn’t have to be hard or costly to discover excellent quality essential oils. Browse my guide to the Best Essential Oil Brands to get started with an oil company that’s right for you and your family.

I am a newbie to this entire essential oil world so I truly appreciate your articles. I have contacts with both doTerra and Young Living but as a beginner I hesitate to spend that kind of money. I also question the sales method. I have ordered 2 starter kits and a diffuser from amazon-this is easiest for me living in Canada, so thanks for that direction

Hi how do I get the tea pots?

From the herb sack, you combine herbs until you reach a full jar. After you get to that, you click it and get essential oils or a tea strainer. You merge the tea strainers and you get tea cups and eventually the tray with the tea pot and cups (6th level)

10 essential oils for travel: bring these on your next trip.

Making plans to travel can be extremely exciting but also a little nerve-wracking. 

Some people love the experience of hopping on airplanes, while others find it to be stressful or uncomfortable. Depending on where you’re traveling and the length of your trip, sometimes travel anxiety is hard to avoid.

If you plan to take a trip somewhere soon, you may benefit from using essential oils to keep those travel-related worries at bay. 

Can You Carry Essential Oils On A Plane?

bringing essential oils on plane

Travel guidelines can be tricky to navigate, especially when it comes to carrying essential oils. You may not want to leave your essential oils in a checked suitcase because there is a possibility they could spill or break. If necessary, you can easily pack them in a way that ensures they’ll be protected and arrive safely when you land.

However, if you use essential oils to help ease your travel worries, you probably want to carry them on board with you to use when needed. One thing to note is that most airports have restrictions on what you can bring on board with you. When traveling, the standard TSA rule is that you can bring containers that contain up to 3.4 ounces of liquid, and you can bring as many of these containers as you want, as long as they are individually 3.4oz or less. 

Most essential oil bottles are 0.5oz in size, so you should be fine to bring them aboard. Just make sure to pack them well in a ziplock bag in order to avoid any spills or damage to the bottles.

Essential Oils That Kill Germs In The Air

essential oils that kill germs in air

There are plenty of movies and TV shows that portray train stations and airports as romantic settings full of possibility. While there is something special about traveling, the truth is that these settings are also full of germs. People shuffle in and out of these spaces all day, every day. 

For the germaphobes reading this article, here are a couple of essential oils that are commonly used to cleanse the air around you (and even potentially boost your immune system).

Tea Tree Oil

This essential oil has powerful properties that can kill bacteria and viruses in the air. This 2006 study looks at how tea tree essential oil has antimicrobial properties that may help fight infections both topically and in the air. In fact, some people use tea tree oil as a natural hand sanitizer because it has been shown to kill viruses such as the flu, E. coli, and more. 

Eucalyptus Oil

A 2012 study showed that there are strong antiviral properties found in eucalyptus oil that can help to treat & prevent infections. In addition to these properties, eucalyptus oil has a refreshing aroma that can open airways and relieve congestion with anti-inflammatory effects. 

Essential Oils That Give You Energy

essential oils for energy

Another factor of traveling and vacations is the amount of time and energy it takes to get to and from your destination. Whether you are driving, flying, or taking other transportation– it’s essential to stay alert & awake. Now, you may have a 20-hour flight that you can get some sleep on, but you also will probably suffer from jet lag.

When it comes to traveling, sometimes drinking coffee isn’t enough to keep you energized along the way. These essential oils can help give you a clear mind and boost of energy to stay awake & beat fatigue during your journey. 

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary is known to have stimulating properties that can awaken your mind. A 2012 study concluded that when used for aromatherapy inhalation, rosemary oil has positive stimulative effects on mood, brain activity, and other responses. 

Most citrusy essential oils provide an awakening and energizing effect, especially when inhaling the aroma. The vibrant scent of lemon oil has even been shown to improve productivity in factory work environments.  A 2010 study looked at the effects of lemon essential oil aromatherapy and noted that it could improve cognitive function. That being said, it may help you stay alert during exhausting days of travel. 

Peppermint Oil

The minty, refreshing scent of peppermint oil is well known to awaken your senses to help you energize. In 2013, a study looked at the effects of peppermint oil on athletic performance. Among the results of this study, it was shown that peppermint oil aromatherapy can help prevent fatigue.

Our boomboom mint variety nasal inhaler pack uses the perfect blend of peppermint oil, spearmint oil, eucalyptus oil, and other natural flavors to give you a refreshing boost of energy and focus.

Essential Oils That Help You Relax

essential oils to relax

Many people who don’t like to travel will say that it makes them feel nervous or anxious. Traveling is something that forces you out of your comfort zone, which can easily throw off your mood and emotions. In fact, the fear of traveling (known as hodophobia) is one of the most common phobias worldwide. 

Your fear may be related to past experiences or more specific concerns like the fear of flying. Most people will have some kind of fear related to travel– some cases more severe than others. It may be common, but it’s still hard to manage. That’s why we wanted to share some essential oils that can help you get rid of those anxious feelings during your trip.

Anxious or nervous feelings can feel suffocating at times, especially when traveling. The soothing aroma of lavender essential oil has been researched and shown to provide a calming effect on your nervous system and mental state. Many people use lavender oil to ease their anxiety & soothe their worries while traveling.

Sweet Orange

The sweet orange essential oil has been researched over the years and shown to provide a wide variety of positive benefits. A study in 2013 showed that inhaling this essential oil was effective in reducing stress levels in patients experiencing emotional/anxious feelings. 

A 2015 study looked at the effects of geranium oil when used for inhalation for aromatherapy. This research showed that the essential oil was able to decrease physical symptoms of anxiety, including muscle tension and rapid breathing and providing mental relaxation.

Our boomboom essential oil "Relax Roll-On"   uses the perfect blend of these essential oils and more to ease anxiety & body pains, among other benefits.

Essential Oils That Help You Breathe Better

travel town essential oil

Traveling may cause you to experience trouble breathing due to anxiety, high altitudes, and other environmental factors. When you need a breath of fresh air to open up your airways on the go, certain essential oils can help you & improve your breathing .

This essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can refresh your respiratory system to help improve breathing. It has a minty aroma and soothing effect that can clear your sinuses, making it easier to breathe normally. It also can give you fresh breath during long travel days when you feel the need to freshen up but can’t brush your teeth. 

Frankincense

Using frankincense oil for aromatherapy has been shown to benefit patients with COPD symptoms (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). One of the main symptoms of COPD is difficulty breathing, but this 2015 study showed that using frankincense oil was able to act as a highly effective treatment.

Frankincense is also commonly used to help relieve nausea or an upset stomach.

If you are interested in using essential oils to improve your breathing, check out our lineup of inhalers and roll-ons . These products use the perfect blend of spearmint and other essential oils to open your airways for enhanced breathing.

Final Thoughts

While traveling can be enjoyable and exciting for some people, it is a common source of stress for others (especially during a global pandemic). The physical and mental effects of travel-related stress may be tough to avoid, but they are manageable.

Why use essential oils for travel?

It’s pretty cool to be able to travel with something that will give you relief and help you in some way without going to a pharmacy.

The most common essential oils are; Bergamont, peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, frankincense, rosemary and tea tree. You may even have these essential oils in your home without realising their incredible benefits!

These are probably some of the staples to take travelling because they can help in many situations.

The best essential oils for travel

1. bergamot.

travel town essential oil

Bergamot might almost be my all-time favourite essential oil for travel and everyday life. Bergamot is one of the best essential oils for flying anxiety (which I suffer from badly).

Bergamot is an awesome oil for relief if you are feeling nervous or feeling down and stressed. It uplifts, energises and smells amazing!

Some other cool facts about Bergamot is that it is derived from a citrus fruit tree which has a particularly strong aroma of citrus and spice. It can be used to improve blood circulation and serve as an anti-depressant.

It also has antibiotic and disinfectant properties which can help in preventing infections. If you’re suffering from headaches, pains or sprains Bergamont can actually help in easing the feeling of pain in the body. This may come in handy when you’re experiencing jet lag or run down.

There are probably 100 different benefits from Bergamot oil but a couple more include aiding digestion, skincare, helping body odour (could come in handy when you haven’t showered for days on your van life adventure?), reducing fever and killing germs ( Organicfacts ).

One of the best essential oils brands is located in Kaikoura in the South Island of New Zealand called Wildflower Botanicals. They smell amazing, work magic and the owner is incredibly talented. Check them out here.

2. Peppermint

travel town essential oil

The all-time best energiser and one of the best essential oils for focus.

Peppermint oil is magic and has a range of benefits. It is one of my favourite essential oils for motion sickness.

You could probably buy peppermint oil simply for its smell and feel-good aroma. It’s my favourite essential oil for travel when I need to feel awake after a long haul flight or if I need a little energy boost without having a coffee.

Peppermint oil is one of the best essential oils for nausea. It can also help reduce stomach aches and digestive issues. If you suffer from IBS, using peppermint oil or having peppermint tea can be extremely useful.

3. Lavender

The all-rounder! One of the best essential oils for meditation and the best essential oils for travel.

Lavender has a range of uses that may come in handy in almost any situation. I often use lavender on my pillow at night to help me sleep or rub it around my ears to help me relax.

Lavender oil has incredible relaxation components as it helps to relieve nervous tension, pain and aids sleep. The calming scent of lavender oil makes it perfect to reduce anxiety and depression symptoms which is great if you suffer from flight anxiety.

If you do suffer from flight anxiety and would like some tips on how to reduce your fear of flying head on over to my post: How To Deal With Your Fear Of Flying. 

4. Eucalyptus

Getting the cold or flu? Feeling a bit run down while travelling? Eucalyptus is your friend!

Eucalyptus is one of the best essential oils for the flu and an incredible multi-talented oil. I’m sure you’re all aware of its benefits for helping to relieve symptoms of the common cold and flu as tissues are often lined with eucalyptus oil.

It has incredible anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties but it can also help with hair nourishing, itchy scalp, protecting from bugs, help with cold sores, reducing fever and bad breath to name a few benefits ( Up-nature ).

Definitely useful to pack in your travel bag!

5. Frankincense

The King of essential oils for travel sickness.

Another A list essential oil! Maybe you’re heading skiing on your travels? Or, hiking up a windy mountain? Frankincense is a good essential oil for travel as it can help relieve the effects of dry skin and sunburn.

Don’t apply it directly to your dry skin without diluting it first.

If you’re thinking of having a few cocktails on your travels then Frankincense is probably your number 1 essential oil for travelling as it is known to be a hangover cure!

One of the main reasons I use Frankincense is to help with feelings of stress.

6. Rosemary

Perhaps another hangover cure! Rosemary is actually an aromatic herb but has many more benefits than simply tasting nice!

Maybe you’re spending lots of time at the beach on your travels? Rosemary can help to condition hair to make it look healthy!

The main reasons Rosemary can help is to improve your memory, soothe digestive issues and relieve muscle aches and pains. It is an overall great essential oil to take travelling and to have in your house.

7. Tea Tree

Doing any outdoor activities on your travels? Tea tree oil is one of the best essential oils for bug repellent. And probably your must-have essential oil for travel. Especially if you are travelling through the west coast of the South Island of NZ where sandflies are most annoying! (Learn more about the West Coast here ).

Tea tree oil can help you out as it helps to soothe itchy bites and actually works as an insect repellant!

Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of a tea tree and can actually help with all sorts of things. It can be applied to the skin to help treat acne, lice, scabies, athlete foot, cuts, ear infections and even toothaches!

While I was travelling through NZ in my van I used tea tree oil a lot to help my itchy bites, heal scratches and bumps. It’s kind of like a first-aid solution!

8. My Favourite blend!

travel town essential oil

I mainly use a mix of essential oils for sleep, anxiety and stress relief, awareness and clarity.

They really help to ease my feelings of depression and anxiety and are particularly useful when I am feeling anxious on planes, trains, buses or even in situations that include talking to a bunch of people or new social situations.

I have definitely found one of my favourites by Inner Essentials and maybe you will love them too. It’s a blend of bergamot, frankincense, juniper, lavender and ylang-ylang aimed at reducing anxiety and stress it also is one of my favourite essential oils for seasickness.

I brought it from a market in Melbourne a few years ago and had to order some more because it is absolutely amazing!

The scent smells wonderful and is extremely relaxing. It helps me snap out of a stressful funk almost instantly when accompanied by a deep breath. I like to use it when I am feeling stressed at work or flying on a plane.

You can buy this blend in 10ml ($14 AUS) or 50ml bottles ($42 AUS) online from the Inner Essentials Facebook page and website . Just message Robyn who is super lovely and can sort you out or, add it to your shopping cart!

My top 2 essential oils for jet lag

All of the above oils can be used in some way to help cure your jetlag but I suggest the following two essential oils for jet lag that have helped me in the past.

travel town essential oil

  • Peppermint- It is like the Kind Daddy of essential oils helping you in many situations but particularly when you feel sick or like a zombie after travel. I suggest this one for all of your long haul flights!
  • Lavender – Another King Daddy. Sleeping in a dorm room with 8 others? Can’t sleep? Lavender oil should be able to help you out. Feeling stressed on a flight? Lavender oil’s got your back. I can’t rate it enough.

The best essential oil travel mist spray

By now you are aware of the benefits and incredible aroma of essential oils and that’s awesome. But, can you imagine how great essential oils are when transformed into an essential oil spray or mist?!

travel town essential oil

They provide the ultimate mindfulness tool in an easy access spray bottle, perfect for anywhere you go and small enough to slot into your hiking pack.

My favourite mists are from Combardis Elixirs . They are specially formulated to help you in specific areas such as love, abundance, freedom, clarity, inner strength and a whole lot more.

Karen has created a ray of special blends all designed for a specific mindful purpose unique to how you are feeling.

I can truly say the mists will pleasantly awaken your senses, improve your ability to focus on the area you need support in and leave you with a clear and calm state of mind ready to keep on keeping on!

When travelling you have limited room to squeeze in all the necessities but don’t worry, these mists are 50ml and pretty small. All of the mists have their own special essential oil blend, purified water, natural dispersant and are most importantly filled with LOVE. Below are the details of my favourite mists.

Free The Spirit

free the spirit

This is quite possible my favourite mist. It is so beautifully designed to really create the feeling of being free, perfect for when you are needing some extra confidence while travelling.

When spraying the mist I feel as though I am walking through a beautiful, lush forest full of nourishing trees while at the same time being kissed by the glistening sun, which is beaming down and rejuvenating my spirit.

The personal description on the bottle is:

“Open your heart and mind allowing your authentic and creative energy to flow”.

Followed by the affirmation:

“I am free to be me”.

The Ingredients are:

Lemongrass, Bergamont, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang.

Spicy and woody with an uplifting vibe. The lemongrass is subtle but strong. The touch of bergamot instantly generates feelings of relaxation and calm. The mist is combined really well with a scent that you will want to spray again and again.

You can use it:

When you need to feel awake yet relaxed and are looking forward to a restful break. Maybe even at the airport? The essential oil spray is fantastic to use when you want to create positive energy, have a good weekend and feel excited, rejuvenated and alive.

Highest Potential

highest potential

Reach your potential with this amazing essential oil spray perfectly made to bring out the best version of yourself. I felt instantly alive, happy, awake and ready to start my day as soon as the mist had left the bottle and made its way to my crown.

Everything you were worrying about before is instantly removed from your thought, you will feel as though anything is possible and life is good.

“Remove any limiting beliefs, strengthen your confidence within and strive for the highest”.

“I am inspired to be the best version of me”.

The ingredients are:

Sweet Orange, Lime, Geranium, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang and Rose Otto.

Zesty. The lime hints stand out the most and linger perfectly on your skin. It smells sweet and tangy like sherbert or a sweet and sour lolly. The Rose Otto also stands out giving it a nice flowery scent. The Sweet Orange hints are crafted beautifully, helping you to feel alive and refreshed.

First thing in the morning or when you need to feel awake. If you want to kick-start your day with good intentions and take control then this mist is the perfect tool. You could even use the mist when you are feeling down, nervous or in need of a confidence boost.

(Cost for both mists mentioned above $30 AUS – International shipping is $15.00 AUS).

Lovely Lavender

Sometimes the best vacations push us far out of our comfort zones. That could include landing in a place where you don’t speak the language, taking the kids on an extensive journey day, or even heading home for a large family gathering. That’s no reason for family drama or occasional sleeplessness to prevent you from having the time of your life. Keep Lavender and Lavender Vitality™ with you and you’ll be ready to roll.

  • Fight the occasional restlessness from time zone changes by adding Lavender Vitality to tea as part of your nighttime relaxation routine.
  • Breathe in Lavender for its calming scent before your daily vacation activities.
  • Massage Lavender into skin with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for a soothing sensation after a day of sunbathing at the beach.

YL tip: Want a discreet and hands-free way to enjoy aromatherapy with Lavender? Fit an Aroma Ring with Lavender on your ear or nose so you can breathe in the calming scent whenever and wherever you need it.

How to travel with essential oils on a plane

If you’ll be flying over the holidays, you might wonder whether you can bring essential oils in your carry-on bag. The short answer is yes. Since essential oils are liquids and usually only contain 5 or 15 ml worth of oil, you can bring as many oil bottles as fit in a quart-size bag.

If you want to take more than that, you can put them in your checked luggage. Just be sure to tighten the caps securely so they don’t leak onto your clothes. You might also want to put them in a carrying case for good measure.

What travel gear should you pack on your trip?

When it’s time to travel, it is important to be prepared with the equipment you need to get you through your trip. We’ve got all of your travel necessities at YL Gear!

  • Simply throwing your essential oils in your luggage will make it difficult to find the oils when you need them. Pack an oil travel case like the August Case to easily organize and store your essential oils.

  • Hydration is key when travelling. Oftentimes, we neglect to keep ourselves hydrated when we are stuck in the hustle and bustle of travel life. Bring a refillable water bottle like our Adeline Water Bottle to meet your daily water needs. Add your favorite Vitality oils or YL Vitality Drops to elevate your water and add a splash of flavor. If piping-hot drinks are your cup of tea, our Cooper Travel Mug will be your must-have travel sidekick.
  • You can’t travel without a bag. Make any getaway stylish with our Weekender Bag. This bag easily slides onto suitcase handles to make it convenient to carry, has metal feet to help it stand, and unzips on the bottom to accommodate shoes or other heavy or dirty items. Our Lorenzo Duffle Bag is another great travel option.
  • Pack your Savvy Minerals makeup products in our Savvy Minerals Makeup Case or Savvy Train Case for easy access and organization.

Radiators fail once more: Moscow suburbs residents appeal to Putin

R esidents across the Moscow suburbs are besieged by a heating problem, for which they plead direct intervention from President Vladimir Putin. These individuals have yet to experience any semblance of home heating since winter started due to a dwindling supply of heating oil. The issue, one largely avoided by local authority communication, has left residents desperate to the point of directly appealing to the president.

While plots have been uncovered to disrupt Ukraine's infrastructure for a second consecutive winter, thus depriving civilians of heating, it seems Russians are now mired in their crisis. Irony drips from the fact that those under Putin's leadership are looking to cause turmoil in Ukraine, yet at home, they face a similar predicament.

Many dwellings within the Moscow agglomeration are presently without heat. The capital's residents are desperate, directly appealing to President Putin due to a perceived lack of alternate avenues for assistance. The absence of suitable heating functionality since winter commenced pushes them towards desperation with no relief in sight.

This seems improbable, but in Russia, it appears that anything can happen.

It remains uncertain if Vladimir Putin is actively addressing the heating crisis. Some experts suggest that Russia's heating oil reserves are depleting, which negatively affects residents' quality of life. Plagued by cold radiators and plummeting winter temperatures, these citizens have directly addressed their pleas to their head of state.

This heating crisis is happening in Elektrostal, a town approximately 71 miles from Moscow.

Ironically, Russia has constantly aimed to destroy the Ukrainian infrastructure since war broke out, deliberately trying to leave Ukrainians without heating during the harsh winters, aiming to break their strong will. It's an irony they now struggle with a domestic heating crisis, particularly near Moscow, their largest and most pivotal city.

Desperate individuals are reaching out to Vladimir Putin. They question his knowledge of the heating infrastructure conditions in the Moscow suburbs and the dire situations residents face there. Sundown brings no relief from the harsh Russian winter and without heating, their houses turn cold. With elections nearing, more and more residents find themselves reaching out directly to their president.

"Since winter's start, we've been without heating. This has been a yearly occurrence for the past three years. Despite paying for heating, we don't have enough. We implore you, help us!" - these are the desperate pleas from the heavily dressed populace dealing with the Russian winter conditions.

Experts attribute the heating oil shortage to international sanctions and surging demands for diesel fuel, pivotal to military operations. Russia now grapples with a dearth of raw materials essential for boiler and heating plant operation. As supplies dwindle, houses grow cold with little hope of any immediate corrective intervention.

It would be adequate if the war ceased, residents were prioritized, and attention accorded to their welfare.

The Moscow Metro Museum of Art: 10 Must-See Stations

There are few times one can claim having been on the subway all afternoon and loving it, but the Moscow Metro provides just that opportunity.  While many cities boast famous public transport systems—New York’s subway, London’s underground, San Salvador’s chicken buses—few warrant hours of exploration.  Moscow is different: Take one ride on the Metro, and you’ll find out that this network of railways can be so much more than point A to B drudgery.

The Metro began operating in 1935 with just thirteen stations, covering less than seven miles, but it has since grown into the world’s third busiest transit system ( Tokyo is first ), spanning about 200 miles and offering over 180 stops along the way.  The construction of the Metro began under Joseph Stalin’s command, and being one of the USSR’s most ambitious building projects, the iron-fisted leader instructed designers to create a place full of svet (radiance) and svetloe budushchee (a radiant future), a palace for the people and a tribute to the Mother nation.

Consequently, the Metro is among the most memorable attractions in Moscow.  The stations provide a unique collection of public art, comparable to anything the city’s galleries have to offer and providing a sense of the Soviet era, which is absent from the State National History Museum.  Even better, touring the Metro delivers palpable, experiential moments, which many of us don’t get standing in front of painting or a case of coins.

Though tours are available , discovering the Moscow Metro on your own provides a much more comprehensive, truer experience, something much less sterile than following a guide.  What better place is there to see the “real” Moscow than on mass transit: A few hours will expose you to characters and caricatures you’ll be hard-pressed to find dining near the Bolshoi Theater.  You become part of the attraction, hear it in the screech of the train, feel it as hurried commuters brush by: The Metro sucks you beneath the city and churns you into the mix.

With the recommendations of our born-and-bred Muscovite students, my wife Emma and I have just taken a self-guided tour of what some locals consider the top ten stations of the Moscow Metro. What most satisfied me about our Metro tour was the sense of adventure .  I loved following our route on the maps of the wagon walls as we circled the city, plotting out the course to the subsequent stops; having the weird sensation of being underground for nearly four hours; and discovering the next cavern of treasures, playing Indiana Jones for the afternoon, piecing together fragments of Russia’s mysterious history.  It’s the ultimate interactive museum.

Top Ten Stations (In order of appearance)

Kievskaya station.

travel town essential oil

Kievskaya Station went public in March of 1937, the rails between it and Park Kultury Station being the first to cross the Moscow River.  Kievskaya is full of mosaics depicting aristocratic scenes of Russian life, with great cameo appearances by Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin.  Each work has a Cyrillic title/explanation etched in the marble beneath it; however, if your Russian is rusty, you can just appreciate seeing familiar revolutionary dates like 1905 ( the Russian Revolution ) and 1917 ( the October Revolution ).

Mayakovskaya Station

Mayakovskaya Station ranks in my top three most notable Metro stations. Mayakovskaya just feels right, done Art Deco but no sense of gaudiness or pretention.  The arches are adorned with rounded chrome piping and create feeling of being in a jukebox, but the roof’s expansive mosaics of the sky are the real showstopper.  Subjects cleverly range from looking up at a high jumper, workers atop a building, spires of Orthodox cathedrals, to nimble aircraft humming by, a fleet of prop planes spelling out CCCP in the bluest of skies.

Novoslobodskaya Station

travel town essential oil

Novoslobodskaya is the Metro’s unique stained glass station.  Each column has its own distinctive panels of colorful glass, most of them with a floral theme, some of them capturing the odd sailor, musician, artist, gardener, or stenographer in action.  The glass is framed in Art Deco metalwork, and there is the lovely aspect of discovering panels in the less frequented haunches of the hall (on the trackside, between the incoming staircases).  Novosblod is, I’ve been told, the favorite amongst out-of-town visitors.

Komsomolskaya Station

Komsomolskaya Station is one of palatial grandeur.  It seems both magnificent and obligatory, like the presidential palace of a colonial city.  The yellow ceiling has leafy, white concrete garland and a series of golden military mosaics accenting the tile mosaics of glorified Russian life.  Switching lines here, the hallway has an Alice-in-Wonderland feel, impossibly long with decorative tile walls, culminating in a very old station left in a remarkable state of disrepair, offering a really tangible glimpse behind the palace walls.

Dostoevskaya Station

travel town essential oil

Dostoevskaya is a tribute to the late, great hero of Russian literature .  The station at first glance seems bare and unimpressive, a stark marble platform without a whiff of reassembled chips of tile.  However, two columns have eerie stone inlay collages of scenes from Dostoevsky’s work, including The Idiot , The Brothers Karamazov , and Crime and Punishment.   Then, standing at the center of the platform, the marble creates a kaleidoscope of reflections.  At the entrance, there is a large, inlay portrait of the author.

Chkalovskaya Station

Chkalovskaya does space Art Deco style (yet again).  Chrome borders all.  Passageways with curvy overhangs create the illusion of walking through the belly of a chic, new-age spacecraft.  There are two (kos)mosaics, one at each end, with planetary subjects.  Transferring here brings you above ground, where some rather elaborate metalwork is on display.  By name similarity only, I’d expected Komsolskaya Station to deliver some kosmonaut décor; instead, it was Chkalovskaya that took us up to the space station.

Elektrozavodskaya Station

travel town essential oil

Elektrozavodskaya is full of marble reliefs of workers, men and women, laboring through the different stages of industry.  The superhuman figures are round with muscles, Hollywood fit, and seemingly undeterred by each Herculean task they respectively perform.  The station is chocked with brass, from hammer and sickle light fixtures to beautiful, angular framework up the innards of the columns.  The station’s art pieces are less clever or extravagant than others, but identifying the different stages of industry is entertaining.

Baumanskaya Statio

Baumanskaya Station is the only stop that wasn’t suggested by the students.  Pulling in, the network of statues was just too enticing: Out of half-circle depressions in the platform’s columns, the USSR’s proud and powerful labor force again flaunts its success.  Pilots, blacksmiths, politicians, and artists have all congregated, posing amongst more Art Deco framing.  At the far end, a massive Soviet flag dons the face of Lenin and banners for ’05, ’17, and ‘45.  Standing in front of the flag, you can play with the echoing roof.

Ploshchad Revolutsii Station

travel town essential oil

Novokuznetskaya Station

Novokuznetskaya Station finishes off this tour, more or less, where it started: beautiful mosaics.  This station recalls the skyward-facing pieces from Mayakovskaya (Station #2), only with a little larger pictures in a more cramped, very trafficked area.  Due to a line of street lamps in the center of the platform, it has the atmosphere of a bustling market.  The more inventive sky scenes include a man on a ladder, women picking fruit, and a tank-dozer being craned in.  The station’s also has a handsome black-and-white stone mural.

Here is a map and a brief description of our route:

Start at (1)Kievskaya on the “ring line” (look for the squares at the bottom of the platform signs to help you navigate—the ring line is #5, brown line) and go north to Belorusskaya, make a quick switch to the Dark Green/#2 line, and go south one stop to (2)Mayakovskaya.  Backtrack to the ring line—Brown/#5—and continue north, getting off at (3)Novosblodskaya and (4)Komsolskaya.  At Komsolskaya Station, transfer to the Red/#1 line, go south for two stops to Chistye Prudy, and get on the Light Green/#10 line going north.  Take a look at (5)Dostoevskaya Station on the northern segment of Light Green/#10 line then change directions and head south to (6)Chkalovskaya, which offers a transfer to the Dark Blue/#3 line, going west, away from the city center.  Have a look (7)Elektroskaya Station before backtracking into the center of Moscow, stopping off at (8)Baumskaya, getting off the Dark Blue/#3 line at (9)Ploschad Revolyutsii.  Change to the Dark Green/#2 line and go south one stop to see (10)Novokuznetskaya Station.
