Wellness Essentials For Travel + GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

I’m currently en route to NYC for a weekend – the fifth trip I’ve taken out of Toronto in the past 7 months and the most I’ve travelled…ever. Aside from the basics, these are the things that I noticed always find their way into my luggage.

SNACKS ON SNACKS

Long layovers and unexpected delays suck. Always be prepared, because being hangry just makes everything seem 10x worse.

Take a deep breath. Inhale snacks, exhale hanger.

RECIPES: chocolate orange // matcha

Larabars, popcorn, apples with single-serve almond butter packets, Go Macro Bars (I only like the banana almond though), and homemade bliss balls are some of my faves to pack. Stick to things that don’t need to be in the fridge (duh).

HAND CREAM

I don’t know what feels worse – dirty hands or rough, dry hands. Hand cream is a daily essential in my purse, and I definitely can’t be without it if I know I won’t be home for a few days. I keep it simple with raw shea butter.

REUSABLE BOTTLE

I like the S’well bottle because it comes in cute colours/patterns, is pretty much indestructible, and legit keeps your drink hot or cold for over 12 hours. Store-bought bottled water is overrated.

DIVA CUP

Because sometimes your period can be as unpredictable as a flight delay. Menstrual cups are really great for travel because you don’t need to worry about leakages, finding a restroom every few hours, or packing a bunch of pads/tampons. Seriously, this thing is a period game changer and is WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.

ESSENTIAL OILS

If you know me, you know my life essentially (haha) revolves around essential oils. I use them on my face and body, all over my home, and as a natural healing tool when I’m not feeling my best.  Not feeling well while you’re on a trip is the worst, so I always pack my Saje stash.

SLEEP WELL BLEND// If you’re one of those lucky people who can fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow…PLEASE tell me your secrets. My sleeping patterns are horrible and are even worse when I travel. This blend is loaded with relaxing ingredients like lavender, chamomile, and valerian (aka nature’s sleeping pill).

The Pocket Farmacy from Saje is a cute passport-sized pouch with 5 essential oil blends that work amazing for everyday wellness, but especially come in handy for travel:

PEPPERMINT HALO// aka BAE. I get chronic migraines and never want to be without a remedy if one hits while I’m away from home. It was actually the first individual product I ever tried from Saje and I’ve had to replace it about 3 times since I got the Pocket Farmacy.

IMMUNE// perfect to roll on pre-flight/bus/train or when you feel like you’re coming down with something.

EATER’S DIGEST// supports healthy digestion and eases stomach discomfort because let’s be real, travelling = LOTS of food that probably isn’t the best for you.

STRESS RELEASE// for if you’re stuck in a delay and need a moment to be zen AF. I also like to combine this with the Sleep Well blend to wind down before bedtime.

PAIN RELEASE// sore neck from sleeping in an awkward position on the plane? Pain release + peppermint halo is a legendary combo. It’s like icy hot but waaaay better with cleaner ingredients.

I’ll be giving away a Pocket Farmacy to ONE lucky reader! In order to be eligible, you must live Canada or USA. Be sure to check out my Instagram post for the rules. Giveaway closes at 12:00 PM EST on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. Good luck!
