The Ultimate Travel Comfort Checklist

by Melissa Chichester

Are you leaving town for a fall color tour, jetting off to a tropical beach, or taking an extended trip to visit family?

For vacations long and short, packing right is necessary in order to avoid stress. The Puritan’s Pride team scoured our catalog and handpicked a few things that might come in handy.

Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick– Travel can wreak havoc on your skin. This Vitamin E stick is the size of a lip balm and can be used not only on the lips, but dabbed on other parts of the face for extra moisture. Here’s how Puritan’s Pride reviewer and customer GrandmaCharline uses hers: “I use this product every day and night! Not only do I use it on my lips; but I also put it under my eyes in the AM and PM. It makes my skin feel wonderful. I love this product!”

Pain reliever– From headaches to backaches to the common cold, a pain reliever is a must have during travel. You never know when a headache could pop up, and who wants to miss out on vacation time because of pesky aches and pains?

Ginger Root– This herb serves as a double agent: not only does it help with occasional motion sickness, but it also supports digestive health.* Plus, it won’t take up much space in your bag.

Crystal Body Deodorant Travel Stick– With a jam-packed travel itinerary, you might end up sweating a little more than usual and feeling a little less than fresh!

This travel stick is made with natural mineral salts, which eliminate odor by leaving an invisible protective barrier against odor-causing bacteria.

Kind Bars– Sometimes, you never know when you’ll be able to grab your next snack or meal. To keep your energy up, it’s always a good idea to keep a small snack handy. Kind Bars come in a variety of flavors that your whole family will enjoy.

Sleep Zone– Sleeping in an unfamiliar bed or traveling to a different time zone can disrupt your normal sleeping patterns. This blend includes Valerian, Passion Flower, Melatonin, and amino acid L-Theanine.

Melatonin promotes restful sleep, so you can awaken feeling refreshed and revitalized and is perfect for anyone experiencing occasional sleeplessness.*

Caffeine– Suffering from jet lag and don’t have time to wait for your coffee to kick in? To stay alert and focused, you may want to consider a boost with caffeine.*

Caffeine works with your neural system and normal metabolic processes to provide its beneficial effects.*

Each 8-hour sustained release beadlet capsule delivers 200 mg of caffeine to help you get through your busy day.*

AromaFresh Car Diffuser– Traveling long hours in a car can get old fast, and after a day-long drive, things may not smell as fresh and clean as when your journey began. With a diffuser and your favorite essential oil you can keep those not-so-pleasant road trip smells at bay. Peppermint is our current favorite. Simply plug in to the DC car socket and enjoy!
