Aromatherapy is great to incorporate into your travelling routine when you go on holiday. Different essential oils can help heighten different senses. So, if you are feeling a little low on energy, sad, poorly or just generally fatigued, there is an essential oil to help counteract and leave you feeling perfected for your holiday.


This is an absolute travel essential for when you go away. It’s the ultimate calming botanical and will help reduce anxiety, mood swings and nervousness, making it great to use if you are an anxious traveller. It can also be used if you are suffering from headaches, as its soothing properties help to relax you and relieve any tension.

Take the This Works Sleep Plus Pillow Spray with you to spritz onto your pillow and help you get some much-needed rest and relaxation.


Peppermint is incredibly cooling, so ideal to use in summer destinations and whilst on your travels. As it is cooling, it’s ideal for reducing muscle tension (great for if you’ve been walking around and travelling all day), and also minimising headaches when applied directly to the temples.

The Aveda Cooling Oil is derived from over 99% natural ingredients, including Peppermint to help eliminate sore muscles and tension headaches. Pop in your luggage and keep on hand for when you need a little pick-me-up.


Grapefruit is extremely energising and can help keep your spirits up and your mood lifted. In fact, any citrus based essential will help to perk up your energy levels and leave you feeling brighter and happier.

The NEOM Organics Nourish, Breathe and Energise Hand Balm is the perfect product to use when you need a little energy boost. It contains both Grapefruit and Lemon to increase energy levels, while the nourishing formula will help to keep your hands protected in the hot summer weather.
