Much like my self-care routine, I’m not willing to give up all the good habits I’ve developed when it comes to incorporating natural solutions into my routine for the sake of a vacation. I may have to do a little compromising here and there, I mean I can’t travel with my infrared sauna, but I’m going to share some of the lesser known doTERRA products that make great travel minis, as well as share some of the top ways I travel with almost everything.
Let's start with the most basic and obvious - your hair. Did you know that doTERRA sells a little travel kit with their haircare line in mind? You get three reusable 3.4oz, TSA-approved bottles with a waterproof bag, perfect for doTERRA Protecting Shampoo, Daily Conditioner, and Leave-In Conditioner. It comes with a mini price tag too - only $8!
Do you take supplements? If you're taking doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Supplements then I know there's no way you're leaving home without them. There's a plethora of options available for travel pill cases, and while super cute, they don't have to use the doTERRA branding (here's one on Amazon
). Also, when my family is traveling together it's typically a 5-10 day trip so a travel mini for supplements isn't going to do the trick. I actually pack the large pill organizer we use every day.
While I could go into details for all the doTERRA travel minis I'd like to share, if I did that you'd need to take a vacation from this blog (hahaha!). So, in an effort to keep things simple and not take up too much of your time I'm going to list off the doTERRA products that make great travel minis. Many of them you can get as freebies in the doTERRA Targeted Wellness Programs - which are often times products that you're using anyway. Or at least use the idea and create your own with containers and such that you can find elsewhere.

If you're in a routine of using your essential oils on a regular basis then there's no way you won't want to have what you use the most with you on vacation. There are a couple ways to do this. You can pair down and take 5mL bottles of your daily use and most frequently needed oils, this is what I do. Or if you don't like the thought of needing an oil and being without it you can take everything...literally. You can use small 1or 2mL sample size vials - the cool thing is that they have them in regular orifice tops
, dropper tops
and roller bottles
For the things that don't already come in pre-packaged "minis" I just bought refillable containers, to put things like my doTERRA Body Wash, Pore Reducing Toner, On Guard® Foaming Hand Wash and everything else.
So, now you see that you don't have to compromise your natural solution lifestyle even while on vacation. Are you planning and packing for your next vacation in your head right now? I would love to hear where you're headed! If you need help with anything or can't seem to find the perfect solution, let me know and I'm happy to help give you specific tips or links to what you need.
