I think what I love most about using essential oils is that they are all natural. This means I am not putting another chemical in my body when I don’t have to. Don’t get me wrong sometimes the headache is too bad and well you just need to reach for that bottle of Advil.
So why are essential oils effective. It’s your body have an instant response to the various scents of essential oils. Have bad allergies and think smelly essential oils aren’t for you? Think again, I am allergic to a lot of pollen, plants, tree, and well most of the outdoors but essential oils actually help me combat some of my allergy symptoms.
Calming Essential Oils
If you have been to Disney World before you know this place is a sensory overload. You have the smells, the sounds, food, crowds and so much more! There is no need to let your vacation stress get to you. Not to mention the rage of a stroller running over your foot or the frustration of yet another child having a Disney meltdown. Your vacation should be about family and creating those special moments. To help keep me calm I always go to a lavender based essential oil. This helps to reduce your tension and stress. Here is a roll on calming essential oil.
Energizing Essential Oils
Disney World really requires a whole training session to get ready for. There is a lot of pre-planning that goes into the vacation but that isn’t the end. Once you are at Disney World you need to prepare to walk 7 to 10 miles a day and it could easily exceed this. Lemon is great for sparking some extra energy into your day. Here is a roll on essential oil that will get you a little extra pep in your step.
Over Heating and Headaches
I love how peppermint is so multifunctional. I sometimes joke that it’s a cure-all. I have come attached to rolling on peppermint oil as soon as a headache starts. It just gives me instant relief. I am also a huge fan of taking peppermint oil pills when I have a stomach ache. It works wonders and naturally!
Peppermint oil can also be great for cooling down in that hot Florida heat. Cooling down is as simple as putting a drop on your wrists or the back of your neck. This especially when combined with a wet towel gives an instant cooling sensation. Here is a great roll on peppermint oil.
Germ Warding Essential Oil
Your best defense in avoiding getting sick at Disney World is to wash those hands. Clean up before every meal and really as often as you can. Just with the sheer number of people at Disney World means a lotta germ in it. Just to give me an extra boost I also use Rinse’s product Thievery. This is a blend of 100% Pure Essential Oils of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Rosemary & Lemon. These oils are known to help keep cold & flu germs at bay. I religiously used this on my last trip to Disneyland and no awful end of vacation cold!

Also note: that my favorite essential oils from Rinse are available to purchase at Disney World. It’s how I first discovered this amazing company. They have a permanent location at Disney Springs now! But they also have little popups at Epcot during the various festivals they host throughout the year.
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
