Summer Adventures in July!

Summer is in full swing and it's time to hit the road for our annual road trip! This summer, we will be driving from Virginia to Oklahoma. We have dear family friends that live on a lake in Oklahoma. My family and I have been going since I was about 10. My brother and I have great memories on that lake. Now, every other summer, my brother and his family, road trip from California to Oklahoma to meet us. It's a great tradition and the kids all love it! Between both families, we have 9 kiddos. Our kids love each other so much and we want to make sure the cousins spend quality time together and make lasting memories. Below is a picture of the cousins, minus the newest addition, from our last trip 2 summers ago. I love the close bond they share.

Cousins {minus the baby}

We will be on our road trip for a total of 2 weeks. Along the way, we will go hiking, boating, maybe go in a cave or two, see a National Park or Monument, and visit with friends. There's nothing like getting out on the open road and taking an adventure in this great country of ours. So, what happens if we get sick or scraped up while on the road? I definitely don't have room to bring ALL my oils. Here's a list of some 'must-haves' while traveling.


In my dōTERRA Keychain, I have:

  • On Guard-Immune Protection

  • Lavender-Soothing, calming, and assists for restful sleep

  • Wild Orange-Add to water and uplifting

  • Breathe-Opens airways

  • Balance-For anxious feelings and grounding

  • DigestZen-Soothes occasional digestive issues

  • Peppermint-Cooling, relieves occasional head tension, freshens breath

  • Fractionated Coconut Oil-This will help to dilute the oils if needed

I actually take 2 keychains for my family, here is what's in the second one:

  • Melaleuca-We will be in hotel pools and a gotta have this oil for fungal and other issues that come with public water sources.

  • ClaryCalm-Calming and balancing of hormones

  • Cheer-Uplifting

  • Ginger-For motion sickness

  • Frankincense-Because when in doubt, FRANKINCENSE!

  • Purify-For harsh odors and bug bites

  • PastTense-For occasional tension headache

  • Oregano-Well, just in case. You never know when your immune system will need a little help. {Make sure to dilute this oil heavily, it's a HOT one!}

In my travel bag:

  • Correct-X-for scrapes, cuts, or any other skin issue

  • On Guard Toothpaste

  • dōTERRA Lip Balm

  • Deep Blue Rub Samples-Soothes joint and muscle soreness

  • dōTERRA Shampoo & Conditioner {If space is limited, use the sample size}

  • TerraShield Spray-Repels insects

  • Petal Diffuser-For those nights we stay in a hotel room...ON GUARD! {You can get a smaller diffuser if space is limited}

  • Veggie Caps-Empty capsules

  • On Guard Spray-For cleansing hands and surfaces...and sore throats too!

Some of the most common issues people have while traveling are listed below. Good thing you'll have your oils! {Make sure to dilute with FCO}

  • Bug Bites-Use Lavender or Purify to help soothe those itchy spots

  • Insect Repellant-Spray on TerraShield before going outside

  • Sunburn-Peppermint is very cooling, Lavender is soothing, and Frankincense helps promote healing. Add a few drops to your FCO and rub on sunburns. If you have room, make a After Sun Soothing Spray and spray on. {In a 4 oz glass spray bottle, add 10 drops Lavender, 10 drops Frankincense, and 5 drops Peppermint, top off with water or FCO}

  • Motion Sickness-Peppermint and Ginger {you can sub DigestZen for Ginger} applied to feet, temples, and wrists. Also, smelling from the bottle helps too.

  • Digestion Issues-One drop of DigestZen on your tongue or in your belly button

  • Jet Lag-Peppermint and Wild Orange inhaled deeply, rubbed on your temples and feet

  • Sore Throat-1 drop On Guard added to a TBSP of water, gargle and swallow. Apply to outside of throat {diluted}, make a spray with 10 drops On Guard, topped off with water in a 2 oz glass spray bottle. Also, you can add 2 drops On Guard, 2 drops Oregano, 2 drops Melaleuca to veggie cap.

  • Disinfecting-On Guard Spray {In a 2 oz spray bottle, add 10 drops On Guard and top off with water. you can also add Melaleuca to this. Add On Guard and/or Purify to your diffuser to help clean and purify the air.

  • Nerves and Stress-Apply a drop of Balance and/or Lavender to wrists, feet, behind the ears.

  • Overheated/Hot-Peppermint is very cooling. Apply around hairline, feet, and/or spine. Make a cooling spray and mist yourself. {In a 2 oz spray bottle, add 10 drops Peppermint and top off with water}

  • Cuts, Scrapes, and Skin Irritations-Use Correct-X or apply Lavender, Frankincense, and/or Melaleuca around area.
