8 Natural Remedies Every Traveler Should Carry

1. Ginger chews

With its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties you definitely want to have this in your purse or pocket while traveling. Perfect for nausea, migraines, digestion, aches, pains and congestion.


2. Probiotics

Probiotics encourage a healthy gut environment, which is essential for your entire immune system. Taking probiotics will help maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria, keep your immunity up and digestive system operating healthily.

3. Activated charcoal

This supplement is good for relief from food poisoning, gluten exposure, stomach bugs, gas, bloating and diarrhea. It reduces toxicity by adsorbing chemicals in the GI tract. Be sure to take with plenty of water and stay hydrated.

4. Essentional Oils

 Traveling can cause anxiety and stress, flight delays, lost luggage. Travel with Lavender oil or your favorite smell to calm you down in time of need.

5. Tiger balm, Arnica and Traumeel

Excellent creams for temporary relief of sore muscles, joint aches, pains and bruises. All you have to do is rub it into sore spots as needed then relax.

6. Coconut oil

Regarded as one of nature’s miracles, coconut oil can be used for so many things there’s an entire book written on it. It has antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial antioxidant and antifungal benefits—explains why it is considered the miracle oil! Some of my personal favorite uses while traveling are: eye makeup removal, moisturizing (great for sunburns), oil pulling or toothpaste, hair conditioner, apply to cuts and scraps. Also, try eating a tablespoon or put into tea for a good source of fat intake and boost of energy.

7. Herbal teas

Take your own herbal tea bags for the flight and hotel so you can enjoy a soothing cup whenever you need. It’s an excellent way to get a boost of nourishment with teas like ginger, peppermint, echinacea and chamomile.

8. Magnesium

Magnesium serves many functions in the body and yet it is estimated that 80% of Americans are deficient in this very important mineral. It’s a useful addition to your travel kit for aiding in a good night’s rest, proper bowel function and relaxing the nervous system.
