If you are travelling, there is nothing worse than jet lag. It can rob you of precious time and energy when all you want to do is get on with your reason for travel. Whether it be a holiday, business or something else.
This blend will help you beat jet lag, mainly thanks to ginger essential oil. While traditional medicinal applications for ginger involve digestive function, it is so much more than that!
Ginger promotes blood circulation and relieves inflammation. These properties make it ideal for applying to sore, aching muscles for fast relief.
It’s scent also energizes, so it is perfect when you are dragging your feet from fatigue or exhaustion…or if you are jet lagged! Ginger will get your heart pumping and your feet moving.
In this blend, ginger is combined with the energizing and bright scents of grapefruit and juniper berry. Using the blend will relieve the fatigue and lack of sleep that comes with jumping time zones. Even if you aren’t jumping time zones, travel can be tiring, so give this blend a go.
The quantity below is enough to use for an all over body rub. You can easily increase the quantities and make up a bottle to take while travelling rather than carrying individual oils.
