Bringing Essential Oils On An Airplane

Going on an airplane ride is not always fun. Getting the tickets can be costly, squeezing yourself through a crowded airport can be tiring and making sure you do not forget anything can be stressful.

Getting through this kind of trial would be especially awful if you forget your essential oils.

They can help you keep calm when the world is on fire. But with so many regulations related to flying, you may be wondering, “Could I even bring my oils.”

TSA Regulations and Essential Oils The answer is “Yes.” You can bring essential oils on a plane as long as it is within the 3-1-1 TSA rule. This means you can take up to six 15ml, nine 10ml roll-ons, or eighteen 5ml bottles in a quart size baggie with your carry on luggage. We also recommend making sure the oils have their original label for reference. Luckily, oils will maintain their potency, and are perfectly safe to be x-rayed.

Aside from TSA regulations, it is important to be conscientious of everyone else. Other people can be sensitive to certain smells, so I usually use personal inhalers or roll-ons when I am on the plane.

What is an inhaler?

A personal inhaler is a small plastic or metal tube with a cotton wick inside. This is a great option for traveling. It is mess free, you can make it ahead of time, and it won’t bother anyone else around you.

To create your own personal inhaler: ⦁ Take out the cotton wick ⦁ Add 1-3 drops of essential oils ⦁ Reassemble, and you’re set to go!

Another easy way is to add 1-3 drops to a scarf, cotton ball, or on the collar of your coat.

How To Make A Roll-on Making your own roll-on is an incredibly simple task. It works perfectly for long travels, and using

your oils on the go. A good rule of thumb is to follow a dilution chart when creating your roll-on.

You are going to want to add the essential oils first in accordance to the dilution chart. After adding

your essential oils, add enough carrier oil to hit the neck of the bottle. Then simply add back in the

roller ball insert and press down firmly until it snaps into place. Shake a few times to ensure that the oils are properly mixed with the carrier oil. If you need help choosing a carrier oil, this is a great place to start.

reminiscent of lemon sugar cookies.This blend brings my zen back when I am feeling
