Essential Oil Recipes for Wellness While Traveling

Nothing can stop an exciting vacation in its tracks like arriving at the destination and starting to feel unwell.  Travel is supposed to be about enjoyment but the stress of planning, lack of proper sleep on a long day, or new germs in new places can get us down before the fun even starts.  With all that it takes to make a trip successful, traveling can take a toll on our minds and bodies so it is important that we make sure to take extra steps to support our wellness when we're on the road.  Being proactive about staying healthy and feeling our best while traveling can ensure that we always have the energy and motivation to enjoy our vacation to the fullest.  Packing our bags with a few handmade products utilizing the amazing benefits of essential oils can help us see the world and feel our best. 


Here are a few essential oil recipes to help support our health and wellness while traveling…

Bon Voyage: Exfoliating & Nourishing Travel Soap

Bon Voyage: Exfoliating & Nourishing Travel Soap

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Weigh and combine the essential oil blend and fragrance oil, then set them aside. 
  2. Place one slice of loofah into each cavity of the molds and set them aside. 
  3. Weigh each base oil and butter and combine them in a large bowl.  Place the bowl on top of a large pot about ⅓ full of water.  Bring the water to a boil.  Heat the oils until fully melted and blended, stirring occasionally. 
  4. While the oils are melting, weigh out the lye and water in two separate bowls.  Slowly add the lye to the water while gently stirring until the lye is fully dissolved and the liquid is clear. 
  5. Let the oils and lye mixture both cool to 120 degrees or below, ensuring that they are within 10 degrees of each other.  
  6. Place the immersion blender into the oils, tapping it on the bottom of the bowl to release any air bubbles.  
  7. Slowly and gently pour the lye water into the oil mixture.  Pouring down the side of the bowl or down the shaft of the immersion blender can reduce the chance of splashing. 
  8. Pulse the blender a few times, watching as the oils and lye start to combine.  Switch between short pulses and stirring with the blender until the mixture comes together to a light trace.  
  9. Working quickly, stir (do not blend) in the essential oil and fragrance oil blend. 
  10. Once the soap reaches about a medium trace, slowly pour it into the molds over the loofah slices, scraping the bowl to ensure no soap is left behind.  Tap the molds on the table or counter to release any trapped air bubbles.  
  11. Cover the molds and allow the soap to sit in the molds for 48-72 hours at room temperature. Unmold the soap and allow it to cure for 4-6 weeks.
