Detox Your Carry-On with These Ten Travel Must-Haves

Lately, we’ve noticed that our travel plans have been falling into two camps: the hurl-routine-out-the-window, escapist trip (which we heartily encourage) and traveling for work (womp, womp.) When it comes to the latter, any trinket, talisman, or supplement that encourages a nanosecond of self-care is crucial. So next time you’re in the air or on the road or climbing Machu Picchu, remember these portable TSA-friendly luxuries. And no, we never thought we could combine “TSA” and “luxury” in one sentence, but these are that good. Trust.

  1. 1

    EYE DO

    An essential for planes, trains, and any head-slumped-against-the-wall, in-transit snoozes. Mulberry silk makes this mask feel like…well, nothing against itchy, tired eyes. The dense blackness lays the groundwork for deep, darkness-fueled slumber.

    OIL WELL

    The creeping queasiness that accompanies several hours of musty, recycled air and other undesirable odors is all too familiar. Aromatherapist Annee de Mamiel’s blend of pine, peppermint, and lavender is a godsend for those moments when a waft of botanically scented anything under the nose feels like winning the jackpot.

    ROLL WITH IT

    We’ve been known to bust out body whisperer Lauren Roxburgh’s mini foam roller in airport terminals and on
    train platforms for a speedy,
    tension-easing roll. But the best
    is before bed when you have the
    square footage—and the time—to
    work on all the middle-seat knots.

    WHEN IN AROMA

    This diffuser is small but mighty, and setting it up—with a few drops of orange blossom oil—in a hotel bathroom or friend’s guest room feels both decadent and immensely comforting.

    BEE GOOD

    We try not to succumb to panicky, travel-induced germophobia. Still, after contracting one too many sniffles on the road, our remedy bag is now loaded with tinctures and potions. A spritz of this propolis—a natural honeybee-made resin—acts as a soothing balm for the throat. And propolis can help boost the immune system, according to preliminary research. Plus: It tastes good.

    SUPP
    AND
    AT ’EM

    For the trips that take us off the grid—climbing Kilimanjaro, horseback riding across the Gobi desert, anyplace our cell phones don’t get coverage—these reishi- and ginger-packed tabs keep us centered and supported.

    SIGN LANGUAGE

    Drift into a meditative state with psychic medium Laura Lynne Jackson. Transit time is ripe for daydreaming, and Jackson’s instructions encourage us to ponder the bigger spiritual picture and lean into the myriad signs that surround us.

    CHILL PILL

    Alongside the feelings of euphoria brought on by a great trip come the nasty side effects of hours in the air, like being fatigued but not able to sleep, or having that hungry-but-nauseous hybrid. Try chewing two tablets of this homeopathic formula.

    IT’S A VIBE

    Pack it last, unpack it first, or
    wear it around your neck. We
    adore anything that
    multitasks and
    comes wrapped,
    preferably
    in gold.

    TRAVEL ADAPTER

    As much as we’re married to the ritual of steeping adaptogenic shrooms for tea, the convenience of these capsules cannot be beaten. No kettle, no problem.
