I use a small carrying case that holds up to eight - 2ml bottles of essential oils. You can use anything to carry your essential oils as long as it is dark and insulated (if you are traveling in super warm temperatures).
Suggested oils might include:
Lavender: Stings and bites, burns, bruises, scrapes. It has analgesic, antiseptic and more properties to help heal wounds. Not to mention the calming effect it will have to the person affected.
Tea Tree: Tea Tree is good for all types of infections. It is antifungal, antiviral and anti-bacterial. Tea Tree is good for all kinds of skin wounds and irritations from sunburn, to acne, athlete’s foot and more.
Peppermint: Peppermint is known for its anti-nausea and indigestion relief. Peppermint also helps with headaches, sinus congestion and even for painful joints!
I recently read where adding a few drops to some calamine lotion, helps relieve and heal Poison ivy lesions more quickly! And if you are camping, Peppermint will help keep the ants away from the picnic table.
Roman Chamomile and/or German Chamomile: Excellent to help you and your children relax and fall asleep more easily after a day of excitement.
Of course, they also have anti-inflammatory properties and are helpful for burns, bee stings, nettle rashes, and other injuries. These oils are natural antihistamines and may help with various air born allergies.
Eucalyptus: Best known to help relieve congestion from coughs and colds, but did you know that it is also an excellent insect repellent…..especially Eucalyptus Lemon. Eucalyptus has great antiseptic and antiviral properties.
Rosemary: This wonderful stimulating essential oil is great to use on long road trips. Rosemary can also be used along with Peppermint for those headaches that can pop up out of nowhere.
Just a drop or two mixed with a little carrier oil and rubbed on the back of your neck and shoulders will relieve those headaches within a few minutes. Use Rosemary on painful muscles and joints too!
Lemon: Lemon is known for its antiseptic and disinfecting properties. Lemon will freshen and clean most all surfaces. It can be very effective on insect bites.
Helichrysum: Helichrysum is a go to for injuries that are painful as it has superb analgesic properties, is antibacterial and helps if used on bruises shortly after they occur. Since it has analgesic properties bumps and bruises won't be as painful.
Four Robbers Blend (OnGuard/Four Thieves): Four Robbers Blend is used to keep our immune system strong should we encounter some ill people while exploring shopping areas or in various places where crowds gather like: fairs, museums, celebrations etc.
