It is interesting to learn that essential oils have been used for centuries in the healing of a wide variety of ailments and symptoms. The history of aromatherapy can be traced back to Greece, when aromatic herbs like Rosemary, myrrh, ginger, and lavender were used to scent the houses of the wealthy. Over time, essential oil use became widespread throughout the world. Kitchens, homes, bathtubs, and private clinics all contain essential oil bottles or jars.

In order to alleviate jet lag while traveling or between locations, an essential oil travel kit can be useful. Each kit contains tiny vials of various essential oils, sweet jasmine, lemongrass, lavender, citrus, eucalyptus ginger, orange, lemon, and sandalwood essential oils. Some kits include additional extras such as a travel book that describes the various combinations that are recommended for relieving jet lag. These books give descriptions of the smells that are associated with various destinations, including the smell of freshly cut grass, ocean air, sand, and snow. The aromas are reported to refresh the senses, help with relaxation, and offer a light, pleasant aroma around the room.

It is a safe, natural, alternative treatment for a range of conditions and illnesses. An essential oil travel kit makes a wonderful gift that includes many of the essential oils and scents used in aromatherapy therapy. This kit would make a wonderful present for a friend, relative, or professional aromatherapist.

Include Shampoo And Conditioner

You can also include in your travel kit shampoo and conditioner, eye masks, body lotion, toothpaste, toothbrush, body wash, bath gel, face scrub, and a travel humidifier. You will want to stock up on toothpaste and other cleaning products to freshen up your hotel rooms and make sure you have plenty of towels and toiletries available when you arrive. Your essential oils may be purchased separately or as part of a travel kit. The amount of essential oil you need to use in each kit depends on the instructions given.

In addition to the standard essential oils and fragrances, you can also purchase an antimicrobial spray. This type of spray works as an antiseptic to eliminate germs from the air. These can be purchased separately or as part of a travel kit. The advantage of using an antimicrobial spray in your travel kit is that it contains an alcohol base, which means that it is safe to use during strenuous activity. The drawback is that it may not kill all of the bacteria in the air.


When you have completed your essential oils for mosquito repellent and your double blind jar, you should close the jar securely and store it away in a cool, dark place. The reason for this is to limit the contact between the essential oils and mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can sense the heat from your essential oils and are very particular about the scent they like. If possible, you should avoid an area where your mosquito repellent would be applied so as to limit the possible contact with the essential oils.
