Travelling can be disruptive to your natural, non-toxic lifestyle journey. Today I’m sharing with you my tips on non-toxic travel and how I maintain my healthy daily habits. Our family is leaving on a winter ski trip to Banff later this week and this is what I’m packing with me.
You don’t necessarily have all of your non-toxic living products or tools with you while travelling because you’re limited in how much stuff you can bring. Plus, you don’t always have access to what you need where you’re travelling to.

Essential oils for emotional and physical support during non-toxic travel
I always bring a good collection of essential oils with me during my travels. Essential oils can help reduce anxious feelings while travelling, support your immune system by helping fight germs in public areas and transportation, as well as help you get through jet lag.
Some of my favourites include Peace roller blend, OnGuard immunity blend, Peppermint and Lavender. Get these oils at 25% off here.
Non-toxic travel personal care products
Two non-toxic lifestyle tools I never travel without are:
- Tongue scraper: to remove the white film on your tongue that can contain bacteria and metabolic toxins. Get one here.
- Gua sha tool: to enhance circulation, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and give you glowing skin.
One of the many benefits of living more naturally is how little products you really need for personal care. You’ll notice many of the ingredients are multi-purpose. For example, I bring Jojoba oil as my face and body moisturizer. I also bring baking soda as my deodorant, shampoo and toothpaste (use sparingly).
Supplements to strengthen immunity and digestion on your journey
During my travels, I am extra diligent about taking supplements. I’m never quite sure what kind of food I’ll have access to so I bring my multivitamins, digestive enzymes and probiotics. This helps my body ensure it still get everything it needs and supports my digestive system which may have to work overdrive.
Staying hydrating and eating well abroad
One of the most important things to do while travelling, especially when a flight is involved, is to stay hydrated. I like to bring an empty stainless steel bottle with me so I can fill it at the airport and ensure I always have water to drink.
Also, bringing snacks will help you avoid succumbing to the processed airport and flight food options. Since we’ll be travelling domestically, I’ll be bringing fresh apples, grapes and oranges for hydration and energy. I’ll also bring dry fruit and nuts for extra sustenance.
I hope this gives you some good ideas on how to travel while still living the non-toxic lifestyle. If you have any questions or have your own tips to share, drop them in the comments below.
