Travel can be stressful - all that luggage carrying, airport security and jet lag madness. I wanted to share with you some products to help make your journey and time away relaxing and enjoyable. Get all of these and pack them in your case and hand luggage immediately...
First up are two lovely Orla Kiely travel candles - the Lavender (£10 from Orla Kiely) is a blend of French lavender, geranium, lemon and mint; and the Basil & Mint (£10) has basil, green mint, caraway, may chang and lemon peel. The Lavender candle is so relaxing, and the Basil & Mint is really great at helping to clear your mind. These would be great to burn the night before and the morning you travel, if you get anxious or just want to start your journey calm and focussed.
If you are a nervous flyer, you need this delightful facial mist spray from Roques ONeil Therapie, and if you're not, it's such an enjoyable and relaxing product to have with you anyway. The Roques ONeil Therapie Restore Aura Spray (£28 from myshowcase) is an aromatherapy blend of frankincense, rose, spearmint, lemon and white sage - it really helps to calm you and focus your thoughts.
Another aromatherapy product that is definitely a stress-free travel essential is the Tazeka Aromatherapy Travel Companion Roll-On Remedy (£29.50 from myshowcase). This is perfect for those who get travel sick. It's such an attractive bottle and you roll it on your pulse points and inhale the sharp, fresh blend of ginger, cornmint, caradmon and sweet orange to ease nausea.
Some of the most important things you take on a journey are your gadgets - tablets to keep you entertained and phones to keep you in contact with the world - and one of the most irritating things is trying to keep these gadgets charged in-transit or having the suitable plugs when you land in a new country. The Olixar Power Up Kit* (£29.99 from Mobile Fun) solves all of those dilemmas. It contains a portable charger with retractable charge and sync cables to suit all devices - there is a lightning cable, USB and micro USB. There is also travel adapter with four USB ports and plug attachments for different countries.
Finally, if these products just aren't enough to ease your worries about your impending trip, you might need a night's stay at The Connaught in London as part of their epic The Night Before package. For £1060 per night, you get a stay in a Deluxe King Room for two people, a chauffeur driven car from your home/other hotel to The Connaught, treatments for two people at their Aman Spa, a pre-travel checklist to ensure you have packed everything you need, a butler to repack your suitcase after your stay, an early morning takeaway breakfast and a chauffeur driven car to the airport or train station. This is the ultimate luxurious way to start your holiday and will definitely ease all your worries away.
Do you think any of these will help you this summer?
