Intuitive healers naturally have X-ray vision when they tune into the body. My spirit guide lovingly highlights a person's organs, muscles, and chakras that need attention. It's a gift that I open up to only when necessary. Otherwise I would be an OCD mess when traveling. :/
As I was contemplating how to destroy every mosquito that tries to bite me after it rains, I started looking into Asian mosquito repellent products, zappers, etc. This lead me down a mental rabbit hole of other products to purchase as a health conscious traveler. Let's not pretend that germs and diseases don't exist!
Minimalism really helps out though. Minimalism also applies to what and who I touch. I keep my hands to myself in other words...atleast until I get to know somebody. Smiling goes a long way as a formal greeting though for all travelers and strangers. :)
Here's some helpful checklist items to carry and/or purchase when you travel anywhere in the World...
* Tea tree oil - I LOVE tea tree oil. It's all that you need to treat germs, insect bites, plagues, etc. You can still fill up an empty bottle with water and use it. It will just be super diluted. It's the #1 item to pack!
* Antibacterial wet wipes - These are great for wiping down airplane trays, hardshell suitcases, purses, wallets, hotel remote controls, bathrooms that aren't wet bath types, your hands, etc, etc. You can also add on tea tree oil for an extra antibacterial kick.
* Surgical Face Mask - You don't need to feel shy about wearing one on a plane. You will thank yourself when you start doing so! I've found myself smiling behind my sleeping mask and surgical masks as plane passengers start coughing and sniffing. :/ You'll also influence passengers on your row to take a little health conscious nap. ;) A little lavender spray in the air and as a perfume is an extra trick, esp for flights over 2 hrs. hehe
* Hard shell spinner carry-on suitcase - I bought mine from Costco (Delsey brand). It has been great! It's easy to wipe down inside and out, pack groceries in, and take onto planes.
* Satin Pillow Case and Satin Top Sheet - Packing and/or purchasing your own sheets is a no brainer if you've seen any black light hotel news special in America. Satin pillow cases are great for protecting your hair. Satin top sheets are nice to sleep on, esp during colder nights. Both are easy to wash as well.
* Robe and Socks - Robes protect your body and socks protect your feet. Both are comfortable for the early morning and night hours.
* Towels - The amount of cheap hand towels that are used as bath towels in some Asian accommodations has amazed me. Fellow shorties really don't need huge bath towels! Packing and/or purchasing some higher quality hand towels is a great way to enjoy your own personal luxury. ;)
* Rain Ponchos, Teas, Juices, Multivitamins - Take care of your immune system with rain ponchos, Vit C teas (Ex: green tea), Vit C juices (Ex: tangerine, kiwi, etc), and a Multivitamin (Ex: Costco's 500 tablets Daily Multi). Break your multivitamin in half to take one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Your body will absorb more vitamins this way.
