Five DIY Essentials for Vacation or Road Trip

VW VanAre you a road warrior who is jumping for joy that summer is here and your next adventure awaits?  Taking the “fam” on vacation, a weekend beach trip, or just a wandering road trip through your home state?   Family road trips are some of my favorite memories of childhood.   Driving to a new destination brought with it the excitement and promise of the unknown just around the bend.

I remember that while on those road trips, my siblings and cousins and I  were playing board games and eating cookies in the back of our station wagon (in the 1960s)…and not wearing seat belts!  (It was not a legal requirement back then.)  I survived!  Thank goodness that today we have better safety laws and lots of options for nutritious travel snacks and healthy, non-toxic road trip survival essentials.

Here are five of my favorite travel DIY’s to throw in the family First Aid kit.  You will learn how to make a hotel room freshener, a potty spray, a “stuck-in-the-car” motion inhaler, an “I Have a Great Attitude” roll-on, and a safe, effective hand purifier.   Enjoy!

P.S.  If you want to know more about the essential oils I recommend taking the product tour.  Check out the categories in Step 2.
