Travel Responsibly: Our Founder’s Mobile Apothecary + Tips for Sustainability
These are the items I always have in my bag when setting off on a weekend-getaway or an international adventure.
Designed to relax your nervous system and help you tap into your natural circadian rhythm, this gentle blend is essential for anyone juggling time zones. I take it on long flights to help me catch up on sleep before travel lag hits and again before going to bed once I’ve arrived to ensure I get a solid night of rejuvenating sleep.
This is a must for a first-aid travel kit. A great first responder for an upset stomach, it keeps any foreign bacteria under control. It’s also great the day after an extra glass or two of wine. As well as sponging out bad bacteria from your digestive tract, it helps alkalize your blood.
Most people have a harder time with digestion in foreign lands, due to the array of different foods combined with an unusual eating pattern. Pop a few of these in your pocket to take before meals to support digestive enzyme production.
My two favorites are lavender and lemon grass. The first works as an anti-inflammatory and relaxant; in the case of emergency, it can be used to soothe burns. Lemon grass is wonderful for treating muscle pain, warding off insects, and killing bacteria.
Keep your skin well hydrated during the flight or drive, and have a spray of calm on hand to ward off any signs of stress. TSA tip: Transfer to a < 100ml bottle so it can go in your carry-on.
