More people travel during the holidays than at any other time of year. Time away from work for family vacations, trips to visit extended family and friends, and opportunities to get away abound during this time. And as much as we look forward to time away, travel can take its toll too. From overstimulated kids to disrupted schedules, it’s not always all fun and games. Here are some of my favorite Holiday Travel Survival DIY Recipes to help you enjoy your time away.
Tantrum Tamer Roll-On
Traveling with toddlers and young children can be especially challenging. Planning ahead and making sure your little ones stay on a somewhat-regular sleep/wake schedule and ensuring they eat regular meals can help a lot. But sometimes, they just don’t cooperate. Here is a great blend to help handle those meltdown times. This Tantrum Tamer roll-on is my go-to help kids chill out when they are freaking out.
Combine the following essential oils in a 10 mL roller bottle:
- 20 drops orange
- 15 drops Valor
- 10 drops Release
Top off with fractionated coconut oil to fill the bottle. Attach roller fitment and invert gently to combine. Roll on as needed (which hopefully isn’t often!)
Adults may need a little extra help on plane or car trips too. This Acceptance Perfume may be just what you need to help you take a deep breath and settle down for a long trip.
Some parts of the holidays can be stressful. If you find yourself in difficult family situations or dealing with back to back events, this Calm and Collected Roll-On recipe can help you chillax and enjoy the festivities. It contains essential oils that can help protect you from the barrage of energies you may encounter at holiday gatherings too.
Part of surviving holiday travels includes getting plenty of rest. CBD to the rescue! If you or other family members sometimes struggle to fall asleep in unfamiliar places or just need a little extra help winding down, keep this balm handy. Slather on a bit at bedtime for a restful night that will have you ready to face the next day.
No one wants to be sick over the holidays. But odd schedules, climate change, less-than-desirable eating habits, and more can put your immune system in overdrive. Your holiday travel survival kit better include something to give it an extra boost. Use nightly as a preventive, or if you prefer, just keep it handy to use at the first sign of sickness.
This collection includes some of my favorite travel necessities. There’s a recipe for digestion, mood, immune system, sleep, and stress. Mix these babies up ahead of time and you will be prepared for whatever challenges you face during your holiday travels!
