When you’re traveling with family, you want to make sure you pack everything you need for a comfortable trip. From the right types of clothes and shoes to comfort items for your flight, there is a lot to remember. But one thing you will definitely want to pack is a wellness travel kit bag.

In my family, we call our wellness travel kit our “Get Well, Stay Well” kit (which is different than our first aid kit). This kit contains our must-have wellness products to ensure that we stay healthy while traveling. And in the event that we start to feel under the weather, we make sure we have items to immediately address that as well.

So today I wanted to share the items that we include in our wellness travel kit to help our readers build their own. You can check it out below.

What’s in Our Wellness Travel Kit?

Beekeeper’s Naturals Throat Spray

We always, always, ALWAYS make sure we have our BKN throat spray on hand when traveling. We can take it on airplanes and it’s small enough to stick in our pockets when we’re out and about during our vacay.

I personally use the spray every morning to be proactive. However, my husband and kids typically only use it if they feel their throats getting scratchy or if they’re feeling like they’re coming down with something.

I just purchase the family defense pack and our throat sprays usually last 2-3 months. We also have cough drops in our wellness travel kit so we sometimes just pop one of those in our mouths when we get a scratchy throat instead of using the spray.

Beekeeper’s Natural Nasal Spray

In addition to the throat spray, we also pack our BKN Nasal Sprays. This is great for when our allergies start acting up or if we get a stuffy or runny nose.

We only use the nasal spray as needed and I’ve so far been replacing the nasal sprays once every 6 months. (I’m not sure how long each bottle is supposed to be good for, but replacing every 6 months has been working for us.)

The nasal spray is also great for when we feel like we’re getting a sore throat.

Daily Multivitamins

It’s important that we stay on top of our nutrition even while on vacation. Therefore, I always pack our daily multivitamins in our wellness travel kit. My husband has his multivitamin (although he never actually takes them. *sigh*). I bring along a women’s multivitamin for myself and the kids bring their multivitamins.

You can consult with a physician to determine whether you need a multivitamin or not and which multivitamins are best for you.

Eyedrops

We pack single-use eye drop vials for our travels as well. Whether it be allergies, dry eyes, or just general eye irritation, these natural eye drops are a great companion for your travels.

Vapor Rub

My husband and I pack a small container of vapor rub in our Get Well, Stay Well kits. We very rarely ever have to use it, but we keep it with us just in case.

Face Masks

Face masks were something we added to our travel kits when the pandemic started. Nonetheless, we continue to include them in our wellness kits although we tend to only use them when we feel like we may be getting sick and are trying not to get everyone else sick. My husband has also used our travel kit face masks when we are in areas that seem to trigger his allergies.

Hand Sanitizer

Of course, we can’t omit hand sanitizer from the lineup. We always make sure we have several bottles of hand sanitizer with us throughout our travels. We keep some in our personal travel kits, I have some in my purse, and even one on a keychain.

Antibacterial Wipes

Lastly, we always make sure to pack some antibacterial wipes in our wellness kits. We use these quite often when traveling, so I currently have them on a subscription at Amazon.
