Many of you know we’re moving to Germany next month. (If this is news to you, then you really need to follow me on social media!)
My husband is a lab officer in the Air Force and we’ll be stationed in Germany for about three years.
We packed out our entire house last week and are now living on base in a three-bedroom apartment – with a single bathroom (that has only a shower and no A/C) for a dozen or so days before we head out on a road trip across America!
We couldn’t narrow down which essential oils we wanted to bring, so we brought ’em all!
The movers won’t pack opened liquids anyway.
Our unopened stock was packed well in a little cosmetic suitcase and then in a big box.
Traveling with essential oils is interesting.
Most people don’t know what they are. Some ask questions. We usually tell TSA it’s medicine and we’ve never had a second glance.
Traveling internationally is different.
Most security checks require 1 QUART-SIZE BAG per person.
We have a small red case that fits about 16 essential oil bottles and fits inside a quart bag. We all manage with 5 baggies for other items when traveling.
We make sure we have our supplements.
Aaron takes several supplements daily.
I put all these in our checked luggage for a PCS.
When we take a vacation, I use individual pill cases.
I pack my makeup and skin care products in my personal cosmetic case when we PCS.
When we PCS, I check the items that are larger than the required 3 oz, wrapping carefully and placing in big zippy bags.
For short trips, I use refillable travel bottles for personal care items for the kids and me. And we maneuver them all into 5 quart baggies.
My face looks and feels so much smoother and has more even tone since I started using natural skin care products.
These are our daily must-haves and there is no way I’d throw this stuff out.
