I absolutely love natural beauty products so I was excited when I was gifted a little pocket farmacy from a client the day before I departed on a long haul flight to Ireland to spend Christmas and New Year with my family. I had been using a Saje Pain Release spray for a couple of months after my daily yoga practice to deal with any tight muscles and had found it amazing so I was really chuffed when I was given this wallet filled with products. The Saje Pocket Farmacy is revitalizing, supportive, and soothing, as well as incredibly convenient.
I decided to pack the little kit of miracle oils in my backpack to accompany me on the long journey, which included a layover at Chicago O'Hare before flying on to Dublin. I should mention that I'm usually left with about 2-3 days severe bloating after a long flight which makes flying a very unpleasant experience for me. One of the oils is called 'Eater's Digest' and I figured I'd give it a go to see if it would help with the bloating. The ingredients include Fennel, Chamomile, and Peppermint. Fennel and Peppermint are known to help relieve gas, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea and Chamomile is known for its relaxation and calming effects.
I applied the oil to my stomach about 4 times throughout the flight, which when applied starts to tingle and almost numb the stomach. It's actually a really pleasant sensation. I'm happy to report I didn't feel bloated at all on any flight, or afterward. I haven't stopped talking about this oil for 3 weeks, I'm amazed I didn't find it earlier.
The kit also includes the popular Peppermint Halo, a headache remedy containing Peppermint, Lavender and Rosemary. I relied on this oil while traveling to fight off any pressure headaches and to revitalize myself when I landed. Goodbye Jet-Lag!
Another favorite of mine is the Immune oil, used to relieve symptoms of flu such as colds and coughs. Don't you just hate it when people are coughing and spluttering in the confined space of an aircraft? I do. Thanks to Immune, I was able to get through the flight with no side effects. This magic oil contains Cinnamon, Eucalyptus (amazing!) & Tea Tree.
