Whether you're traveling by car, train, or plane, going on a long trip or a weekend getaway, no matter what time of the year it is, it helps to be prepared for some of the unexpected upsets and minor ailments that can sometimes mar a perfectly good trip or vacation.
The biggest is the stress that often comes with travel -- delayed, canceled, or missed flights, lost luggage, misplaced documents, a flat tire or other major car trouble, motion sickness, jet lag, and various camping-related mishaps.
Then there are common culprits like colds and allergies, upset stomach or digestive stress, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, minor cuts and bruises, blistered feet, rashes or hives, chafing, and sun burn.
There are a number of simple ways you can use essential oils to address these problems head on and avoid the kind of misery that can make you wish you'd stayed home. For more on this read our newsletter article Aromatherapy for Travel: 4 Key Essential Oils to Tackle Travel Stress
