Traveling with Essential Oils

Traveling with Young Living Essential Oils
by Debra Raybern

Traveling with essential oils is a great way to provide protection from the discomforts you might encounter – bad food, bad water, pesky annoyances, booboos, fatigue, etc.

Having these items on hand and ready to go when traveling, camping, vacationing or heading to the mission field and be ready to tackle all emergencies.

  • For traveling by plane, the TSA categorizes our oils as liquids and must fit in a quart size baggie along with your other liquids. Oils and NingXia Red travel safely in checked, and x-rayed baggage.
  • For checked bags, carry your oils in one of the padded oil carriers offered by Young Living. 5ml bottles will be the most convenient and the roll-ons.
  • Apply the oils BEFORE getting on the plane. Strong smells from using the oils onboard may not be appreciated by other travelers.
