Travel Tips For Essential Oils

Roller balls are hands down the best and easiest way to travel with essential oils. Using these for blends at home are great but on a plane or traveling, they are absolutely essential.

Find some easily on Amazon and make sure they are darker in color and glass.


There are several blends I cannot live without. One is my daily (sometimes more) allergy blend, another for my face “moisturizer” and a third I call “No Sick.” Blends are one or more oils typically mixed with a carrier oil.

I also make sure to have the single oils that are most important with me. Typically I travel with 4-5 blends and 3-4 additional single oils, depending on needs.

Whether traveling by plane or running an errand, I almost always have oils on hand. Instead of buying (an albeit cuter and “better” oil carrying bag) I prefer a quart sized plastic bag. You just place the oils into the bag and zip up the top. Sometimes I fold down the top if they’re in my purse for easy access.

No Sick

My ultimate favorite blend is one I call “No Sick.” 50/50 oregano and thieves, it smells of Christmas and is one of my favorite scents. I am sure to use it a couple times a week and especially when I am feeling under the weather or sick.

How to Get Through the Airport

Three ways:

Checked Bag

Checking your oils works just fine. The only downfall is that you cannot use them in flight or until you get your bag back.

X ray

X rays deal with frequencies so theoretically they shouldn’t affect the oils, though some people disagree.

Hand Check

If you have them hand check your oils, you’re likely to get further testing as well. A hand swipe and body pat down was included when I did it this way.

I personally have done all three methods when at the airport. Putting the oils through the X ray seems the most efficient way to keep your oils on you. The downside to hand checking is extra time and “checks.” Each of these worked fine and after putting them through X ray I haven’t noticed a notable difference in any of my oils. The choice is yours.


Frankincense is one of the most amazing oils out there and I love it for many things. Put this wonderful oil on the lower backside of your ears while your on the plane and enjoy little to no pressure and popping during take off and landing. Coming from someone with ear and pressure sensitivities, this works so great!

These are some tried and true travel tips that work fantastically and are convenient too. Good luck and happy adventures!

Disclaimer: I use Young Living Essential Oils and based on my research, I believe these are the best, safest and most pure oils on the market. PLEASE do your own research and determine which oils are best for you and your family.
