Our Favorite Lavender Products for Traveling

Summer can be an exciting time full of outdoor adventures and exciting escapes - but it can also be a time of bustle and stressful travel.  Hours spent in airports, public transportation and hotel reception desks can sometimes also bring the unwanted irritability that can come when being faced with impolite staff, crowded spaces and mild sleep deprivation.

Travel Uses for Lavender

Lavender can help you combat some of these seasonal woes with its therapeutic attributes, but this powerful plant has so many other incredible properties that make it ideal for a plethora of other uses that come in handy whether you're at home, work or on holiday.

Here are some of our favorite go-to travel stress remedies and how we like to use them:

Travel with lavender

#1 Lavender Treatment Stick

A potent solution (and carry-on size ready!) for taking on the plane and off.  The natural antiseptic and powerful topical anesthetic properties of lavender essential oil have been known for centuries, making it a standard for treating cuts, abrasions and especially burns.  It also has a long tradition of topical use in soothing headaches, joint aches, sprains, bruises, etc.  The convenient stick delivery system of our Lavender Treatment Stick makes for easy application and portability.  Carry it in the car and purse, take it on the plane, hiking, camping, boating, etc.!

#2 Organic Lavender Essential Oil in Roll-On Bottle

Another incredibly versatile and handy little bottle.  Roll across your temples to reduce stress on the flight (and help promote an inflight nap!).  Run across your wrists or d√©colletage instead of your usual eau de toilette or perfume before a night on the town.  Use as a solvent to remove sap (camping under trees!) or tar (beach time!) from feet.  Use it as a topical anesthetic for burns, bee stings, bug bites, and abrasions.  So many things!  Discover more of what Lavender Essential Oil can do.

#3 Lavender Linen Water

On the car upholstery before a long drive, on towels by the pool, on everything in your suitcase, on the hotel pillow, on complimentary robes and towels... and a personal favorite: a light spritz on your travel wear (travel pillow or summer scarf) to help relax on the plane!  Remember that this bottle is 4oz so you will have to apply it before you check it into your luggage if flying.

#4 Lavender Hand and Body Lotion

Easy hydration on-the-go.  Bonus - if you're short on aloe vera and have a little sun burn, we find that this lightweight moisturizer feels very nice.  Lavender's healing and antibacterial properties come in handy in this instance as well!

#5 Lavender Hand Sanitizer

Pelindaba's alcohol-free, Lavender Hand Sanitizer spray brings together the natural sanitizing, soothing and nourishing qualities of Pelindaba's own organic lavender, witch hazel and aloe vera.  The natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of lavender provide a welcome alternative to the synthetic chemical cleansers found in most other hand sanitizers.

#6 Lavender Travel Tin Candle

Our tin travel candle is a trusty sidekick to freshen your travel accommodations.  Choosing to use natural soy wax rather than the traditional petroleum-based wax makes these candles particularly appealing to those seeking the clean burning fragrance of lavender essential oil with all its relaxing therapeutic properties.

Bonus... Organic Lavender Chamomile Tea

A nice warm cup of tea at the end of a long day full of walking and over-stimulation is a great way to unwind the body and mind to slip into sleep.  In a hotel, a backpacking tent, on the interstate or even poolside (served up on ice, of course!) we love this mild sweet floral tea anywhere our days lead us.

We hope you find this list useful no matter where your travels take you this summer!
