DIY: Peppermint Travel Balm

Before a trip, we’re always on the hunt for travel-sized versions of our fave products. While it’s fun to track down these mini (and weirdly adorable?) items, it’s also worth considering making your own carry-on travel products. That’s where this Peppermint travel balm comes in. It’s so, so simple to make: just mix 4 tbsps of coconut oil with 3 drops Peppermint essential oil. Once the mixture has formed, pop it in a small travel container from your local drugstore and you’re jet set. Peppermint has properties that can sometimes help ease nausea and congestion, so if you start feeling a little off at 30,000 feet, rub this mixture on your temples or chest. Now you really can sit back, relax and enjoy the flight.
