Ways To Use OnGuard Essential Oil For Travel
With March rapidly approaching, it's time to say goodbye winter and hello sunshine. Spring Break is a popular time for travel.
So if you're one of the many packing your bags and traveling someplace warm, this post is for you.
Travel can put real pressure on our immune system. Even if it's for fun; the stress, jet lag, exposure to sick people, and environmental toxins can all take their toll.
And remember Spring may be in the air, but cold & flu season isn't quite over yet.
For all these reasons, you don't want to leave home without OnGuard Protective Blend essential oil.
Tips For Traveling With Essential Oils
If you were wondering "Can you take bottles of essential oils on a plane?"
The answer is YES!
Here are the TSA regulations for carrying liquids on board... you are allowed to carry as many 5mL, or 15mL, bottles that will fit in a 1-Quart plastic bag.
- 90 mL = 3 ounces
- Six 15 mL bottles = 90 mL = 3 ounces
- Eighteen 5 mL bottles = 90 mL = 3 ounces
Yes, they can go through the x-ray at the airport. While it’s probably better to have them hand-checked, I simply send them through the scanner and they're JUST FINE.
You can pack as many essential oils as you want to in your checked baggage, but be sure to pack them in sealed bags with a few paper towels in case of leakage.
To diffuse or not to diffuse? If I'm taking an extended road trip, I'll usually pack my travel diffuser However, that's not very practical for flying or when space is tight. When I'm packing light, I skip it and use my hands to inhale the oils.
OnGuard is so popular and effective, doTERRA has created a whole product line around this essential oil blend.
They are all pretty amazing, but if I had to choose the best OnGuard products for travel it would be the Beadlets, Sanitizing Mist, and Touch Rollerball.
And I'm not alone. Here's feedback from one of our product users... "Can I possibly thank you enough for the On guard products (affiliate link)? Unlike ALL of the rest of my small group of 6 (that were in their late 20s including a doctor) gramma Hal remained healthy throughout. I was dedicated to my daily pearls (beadlets), the lozenges and the hand sanitizer. Am 100% convinced that this was the reason that after getting sick in EVERY 3rd world country Ive ever visited in 66 yrs, I survived with nary a respiratory or other serious ailment! Yay!" ~ Hallie
These three staples are small, convenient, and easy to use. I carry them in my purse all the time, not just when I'm traveling.
The OnGuard Beadlets can be used anytime for a variety of reasons.
Here are just a few:
- A simple, convenient way to enjoy all the benefits of On Guard Protective Blend.
- Help promote immunity during seasons when environmental threats are high.*
- Can be used to freshen your breath.
- Supports a healthy respiratory system.*
- Safe for the whole family.
I've always avoided chemical hand sanitizers, but I have to confess I'm addicted to the OnGuard sanitizing spray.
doTERRA On Guard Sanitizing Mist purifies hands by eliminating 99.9 percent of bacteria and other germs on the skin through an extremely fine, quick drying mist. Infused with a natural apple extract, the moisturizing formula will not dry out the skin and leaves hands feeling soft and smooth.
Not only is is good for your hands, but you can disinfect cell phones, shopping cart handles, door knobs, airplane armrests and tray tables, hotel beds, pillows, shower floors, phones, tv remotes, gym equipment, public restrooms, and more...virtually anything.
To clean sunglasses and eyeglasses take a soft cloth, spray the OnGuard sanitizing mist a few inches away from the cloth and clean away.
doTERRA On Guard Touch provides a gentle and convenient application method for the proprietary essential oil blend.
The rollerball design eliminates the possibility of spills.
Plus it's diluted with fractionated coconut oil, making it perfect for both children and adults.
doTERRA's On Guard Touch can be applied topically to the chest and bottoms of feet when seasonal threats are high and to experience its energizing, uplifting aroma.
Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary—the essential oils in On Guard—are known for their purifying properties to the skin.
- Apply to chest or feet when seasonal threats are high
- Use on palms of hands to purify skin
- Apply to wrists or pulse points for an energizing aroma throughout the day
Do your best to build-up your immune system prior to your travel.
Three to five days before you leave, start applying OnGuard to the bottoms of your feet at night before bed.
Get plenty of quality sleep, take your vitamins, eat healthy, and stay hydrated.
Enjoy your travel adventures, stay healthy, and pack plenty of OnGuard to share.
