Frankincense Essential oil:
This oil’s sedative and relaxing properties are said to help calm the mind and reduce stress, fatigue and anxiety. It is believed that it helps to maintain normal breathing and reduce headaches. Frankincense Oil can also be used to enhance and support immune function, regulate menstrual cycles, and manage uncomfortable symptoms.
Lavender Essential oil:
This oil’s soothing scent is believed to have a relaxing effect on the mind and body. It encourages quality sleep and rest, particularly in difficult-to-sleep areas like airplane seats. This oil is great for treating jet lag-related sleeplessness and could be used to help hyperactive children with their energy levels. Lavender Oil has been shown to be effective in treating skin conditions such as eczema and sunburns. It also helps with inflammation, soreness, and other forms of irritation.
Lemon Essential oil:
This bright, cheerful scent can help improve mood in times of frustration, loneliness, over packing, and other emotional pressures. Lemon Oil is believed to soothe seasonal allergy symptoms and prevent insects from getting in contact. This oil can be used to treat respiratory problems as well as upset stomach due to new foods.
Peppermint Essential oil:
This refreshing, bright oil has been known to stimulate the mind and body with its cool scent. It is also known to improve concentration, particularly in the wake of jet lag. It is said to clear congestion and strengthen digestion in times of motion sensitivity or nausea. Peppermint Oil’s cooling properties also reach the skin. When applied topically to the skin, it can reduce body temperature and ease pain in joints and muscles. This makes it a great choice for those who have had a long day of heat. Peppermint Oil’s scent is known to lift and boost moods, particularly during stressful situations.
Jennifer Lane, Loving Essential Oils owner and a Certified Aromatherapist, explains: “When traveling with essential oils, always be sure to pack them in your carry-on luggage, in case your checked bags are lost or delayed. And be sure to follow all safety precautions when using essential oils, including diluting them with a carrier oil if necessary.”
