When you start using essential oils, I can guarantee that you will carry at least one essential oil with you at all times. In fact, I carry about 5-6 Young Living essential oils with me at all times (no, they don’t take up much space). They change slightly from time to time…mostly depending on the season and what our plans might be that day. Here’s my most recent on-the-go stash of oils.
Lemon, Lime, or Orange oil: I almost always carry a citrus oil with me. A couple drops of Young Living’s Lemon, Lime, or Orange oil in some water makes for a refreshing, and good for you beverage. Plus, a little secret…if we go out for drinks, I’ll bring my Lime oil with me. Bar limes are so small, but a drop of Lime oil sure makes for a good vodka tonic. My hubby will even ask for the Lime oil if we go out!
Peppermint oil: Peppermint oil is my go to oil for digestive support. Plus, it doubles as a breath freshener. Win, win!
Lavender oil: Lavender is one of the most versatile and gentle essential oils. When I am in doubt, I use Lavender.
Breathe Again oil: This roll-on has been a new addition to on-the-go oil stash. I roll Breathe Again under my nose and across my sinuses (as needed).
Thieves oil: Thieves is my go to oil to support my immune and respiratory system. At work, I like to make Thieves tea – a mug of hot water, an optional tea bag (I like green tea or chamomile tea), honey to taste, 1 drop of Young Living Thieves essential oil, and 2-3 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil (which as stated above, is also often part of my on-the-go oil stash).
An oil for occasional stress and nervousness (Tranquil, Peace & Calming, or Stress Away): Lavender oil (which I always have with me as stated above) is calming and relaxing. However, I also apply Tranquil, Peace & Calming, or Stress Away roll-on to my wrists so that I can stay cool, calm, and collected throughout the day.
V-6 oil (carrier oil): On occasion, I carry a small amount of V-6 carrier oil in a little glass squirt bottle I found at a local health food store. That way, I can dilute some of my oils for topical application.
On-the-go oiling accessories —>
I have a cute little essential oil zip pouch that I store my on-the-go stash of oils in (thanks to my friend, Angie, who bought it for me). This pouch is go great because…
- it is laminated, which makes it waterproof and easy to wipe.
- elastic is sewn onto the lining making 8 spots available for the oils to be held into place!
- it has boxed corners, which allows it to stand on its own.
- it is sturdy – not floppy or flimsy!
- the print is fun!
- it is reasonably priced.
