Being a Sagittarius, travel & adventure is my happy place, it is what lights me up, fills up my cup & what freedom feels like to me. I often feel like a bird with her wings clipped, longing to be soaring high above, dancing in the wind & amongst the fluffy white clouds.
And as I embark on my next journey overseas I thought I would share my top companion crystals and oils. Having these beauties by my side grounds my energy, lights me up, and gives me this feeling of protection, which allows me to feel free from worry as I travel.
MY TOP 5 CRYSTAL TRAVELLING COMPANIONS
When it comes to choosing crystals to travel overseas with, it's important to consider their properties and how they can support you during your journey. Here are my favourite recommended for travel:
Black Tourmaline: Known for its protective properties, Black Tourmaline can help create a shield against negative energies and electromagnetic radiation. It can also assist in grounding and balancing your energy, making it beneficial for long flights or unfamiliar environments. I love to place a piece in my luggage to keep it safe on its journey, and then carry that piece with me in my day pack as I journey around the country.
Amethyst: Amethyst is a calming and soothing crystal that can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and jet lag. It promotes relaxation and a restful sleep, making it ideal for those who struggle with sleep disturbances while traveling.
Clear Quartz: Clear Quartz is a versatile crystal that can amplify and enhance the energy of other crystals. It can also help clear and purify your energy field, promoting mental clarity and focus. It is often used for manifestation and intention-setting during travel.
Selenite: Selenite is a gentle and protective crystal that can help create a peaceful and harmonious environment. It can also assist in clearing negative energies and promoting a sense of tranquility. Selenite is lightweight and easy to carry, making it convenient for travel.
Citrine: Citrine is known as the "stone of abundance" and is associated with positivity, joy, and manifestation. It can help attract good fortune and opportunities during your travels. Citrine is also believed to have a cleansing and energizing effect on the body.
Green Aventurine: Ok, so I know I promised 5 of the top crystals but lets be honest, my bag is loaded with so much more! Aventurine is the stone of Adventure, of good luck and happiness while being beautifully soothing for the heart space and I just can't travel without mine.
MY TOP 5 ESSENTIAL OILS TO TRAVEL WITH
Just as crystals make me feel safe and at ease while travelling, so do my essential oils. Here are a few recommendations:
Lavender: Lavender essential oil is known for its calming and relaxing properties. It can help reduce stress, promote restful sleep, and soothe anxiety during travel. I love to travel with our CALM oil blend, and i you're an anxious traveller, I recommend you start applying this 3 days leading up to your trip. While being beautifully grounding, it will also bring so much CALM to your journey.
Peppermint: Peppermint essential oil is invigorating and can help combat fatigue and jet lag. It can also provide relief from headaches, nausea, and motion sickness. Instead of taking a full bottle, I travel with our HEADACHE blend as it is perfect for soothing tension of any kind and also for cooling the body.
Tea Tree: Tea Tree essential oil has antimicrobial properties and can be used as a natural disinfectant. It can help purify the air in hotel rooms or other shared spaces, and it can also be used topically for minor skin irritations or bug bites. This is a MUST for me as I am a target for the mosquito's.
Citrus Oils (such as Orange, Lemon, or Grapefruit): Citrus essential oils have uplifting and energizing properties. They can help boost mood, provide a sense of freshness, and combat travel fatigue. I travel with our LOVE blend as this brings a sense of confidence as well as uplifting you and calming the heart space.
Then ENERGY PROTECTION, this one does not leave my side, especially on the plane rides. This beauty will protect your energetic boundaries while also grounding your energy. She is my ride or die bestie when travelling!
Remember, the choice of crystals ultimately depends on your personal preferences and intentions. It's important to connect with the crystals and choose the ones that resonate with you the most. You can carry them in a pouch, wear them as jewelry, or simply keep them in your pocket or bag.
Additionally, be mindful of any restrictions or regulations regarding crystals in the countries you are traveling to. Some countries may have specific rules about importing or carrying certain types of crystals.
Safe travels, and may your chosen crystals bring you positive energy and support during your journey!
