We explore the latest in natural remedies for travel
‘Tis the season for dinner parties, family gatherings and seasonal traditions with those we love. For many of us, getting together to spend quality time with people we care about most means travel, be it by plane, train or automobile. While travel will always hold its own allure in terms of taking us to both magical places and familiar destinations, we know it can come with its own set of challenges.
This season and beyond, equip yourself with best-in-class, 100% natural remedies that support you in feeling well from head to toe, whether it’s stress relief, sleep support or mood-boosting empowerment you seek.
Natural remedies for travel: easy to use roll-on formats
We know that in order for a product to become a must-have, it needs to be easy to understand and simple to use. One of the most common product formats at Saje is what we call our roll-ons. Amber glass bottles with roller ball tops are meant to be applied topically and directly to specific areas of the body as indicated, for quick and mess-free application. Read on to learn more about some of our favorite roll-ons and travel essentials.
Natural remedies for travel: Pocket Farmacy physical edition
One of our top-selling and community-favorite travel kits is our beloved Pocket Farmacy physical edition. This convenient travel-sized kit houses five of our most popular and effective natural remedies for relief from physical ailments that affect many of us, particularly during busy seasons when we’re more frequently on the go.
This kit contains the first product ever created at Saje more than 30 years ago, Peppermint Halo, which was formulated to cool, soothe and relieve symptoms of headaches and tension in the head, neck and shoulders. It also contains Immune (CAN) / Fortify (USA), the hero product in our collection for cough and cold symptoms like sore throat, congestion and more. Eater’s Digest (CAN) / Gutzy (USA) was formulated to ease digestive upset like sore stomach, indigestion, heartburn and nausea. Stress Release is a blend of florals and herbs known for their ability to help quiet the mind and reduce physical manifestations of stress like clenching the jaw and tightening the shoulders. Finally, this travel kit includes Pain Release, a highly effective analgesic blend to support topical TLC for sore muscles, aches and pains.
Natural remedies for travel: Pocket Farmacy mindful edition
In early 2020, we added a new kit to our collection that was created specifically to address mental, emotional and spiritual health, called the Pocket Farmacy mindful edition. No matter how excited we might be for the adventure that takes us away from home, it’s common for many of us to experience the need for elevated self-care, nurturance and restoration. This kit also contains five remedy roll-ons, which we suggest applying to all pulse points: behind the ears, along the sides of the neck, in the elbow creases and anywhere that feels intuitive.
Reflection is woody and grounding, Energy is bright and lively, Unwind is balancing and harmonizing, Confidence is empowering and stabilizing, and Connection is heartwarming and nourishing. We suggest keeping this kit close during travel and time spent with others, to ensure your own wellness is always top of mind.
Natural remedies for travel: Body Recovery kit
Of course, we also know that travel in any form can be hard on the body. Long days and nights of sitting, standing, flying or driving can leave us feeling stiff, sore and tense. We created the Body Recovery kit as a travel must-have, easy to tuck into your backpack, gym bag or purse so relief is always at your fingertips.
This kit includes a mini size of our well-loved Extra Strength roll-on, a powerhouse product designed to help target macro areas of the body like the back, quads and biceps when aches and pains strike. It also includes a travel-sized Muscle Melt body butter for massaging away tension from the body and a kit-exclusive mist called Cool Down, to help you feel refreshed and restored.
Natural remedies for travel: Sleep Well kitThe last travel kit bag we’re featuring today is a best-seller for a reason; everyone sleeps, and optimal sleep support when on-the-go is more important than ever. Crossing time zones, crashing on couches and staying up later than usual can all contribute to feeling sluggish, lethargic and generally out of sorts. A regular sleep routine can help you feel invigorated and ready to tackle the day, not to mention support proper digestive function and stabilized mood and energy levels.
The Sleep Well kit is a three-piece curated collection that contains the Sleep Well roll-on, our most potent restful formula designed to help you fall and stay asleep with soothing essential oils of valerian root and lavender, a travel-sized Sleep Well body butter to nourish the skin and the mind and a kit-exclusive body mist called Goodnight, made with grounding and relaxing essential oils to encourage peacefulness and calm. This kit is designed to take with you wherever you roam this season, helping you prioritize investing in your best rest.
Natural remedies for travel: tips to stay feeling your best!
As holiday travel season ramps up across the world, here are some tried and true tips and tricks to help you stay well and in optimal health and well-being:
- Stay hydrated. The importance of water in helping you keep well during the busy travel season cannot be overstated. Water supports a healthy overall function of the body, from hydrated skin, a happy digestive system, a balanced and mood-stabilized brain and more.
- Wash your hands frequently and properly. This is one of the easiest ways to reduce the likelihood of getting sick while traveling. The next best thing when soap and water aren’t available? A good quality hand sanitizer.
- Prioritize good quality sleep. Sleep can help you maintain good overall immune function and can help you best enjoy your time spent in places new and old. Try to maintain a routine in terms of going to bed and waking at the same time each day, as an example.
- Avoid processed and low-quality foods. Tempting as it may be, choosing fresh fruits and vegetables over junk foods and refined sugars can help you feel less sluggish and more inclined to make healthy choices that leave you feeling your best.
- Maintain daily movement. Some form of exercise each day like a long walk or a slow stretch can support your body and mind to feel agile, nimble and ready for whatever comes your way.
Wishing you wellness this season!
