Travel experts often recommend that when packing for a trip, we lay everything out that we plan on taking on a trip and then remove the items that we really do not need. Along with clothes and toiletries and other common "must haves" packing the following items can save valuable vacation time and money.
First Aid Items
The Melaleuca Wellness Guide lists T36-C5 for over 120 conditions. It has often been called a "First Aid Kit in a Bottle".
MelaGel can be used to protect a wound, soften dry skin and cuticles, and more.
If you will be spending any time outdoors Natural Insect Repellent is a must have.
Pain-A-Trate relieves sore muscles and promotes blood circulation. For headache relief, massage Pain-A-Trate to the back of the neck, on the temples, and on the sinuses (avoid eyes).
Sustain Sport helps maintain energy and hydration. Dehydration with loss of electrolytes may cause leg cramps.
Customers report that a few sprays of Cool Shot Breath Spray can help calm a hay fever attack. Cool Shot also works as a quick "stain remover."
Exceed Sugarless Gum contains xylitol, a sweetener that reduces bacteria. Chewing xylitol gum helps reduce ear congestion and ear infections.
Sun Shades Sunscreen and After Sun Hydrogel E for those long summer days in the sun.
Renew Intensive Skin Therapy lotion is a soothing hand and body moisturizer. It comes in purse size.
Cleaning and Laundry Items
Clear Defense Hand Sanitizer and Clear Defense Hand Sanitizing Wipes. Science Daily reports that harmful bacteria, such as MRSA and E.coli can linger for days on airplane seat-back pockets and armrests.
Sol-U-Mel cleans and disinfects surfaces along with removing stains.
A tiny bit of Affinia or Sei Bella Shampoo can be used to wash lightweight clothing and underwear.
If you are planning to do laundry make up a travel size container of MelaPower and pack some MelaSoft Dryer Sheets.
Revive Fabric Freshener eliminates clothing wrinkles without the need of an iron.
FiberWise Drink Packets and FiberWise Chewy Granola Bars help add fiber. Migraine sufferers report that traveling often triggers headaches. Maintaining regularity reduces headaches.
Calmicid just in case "vacation-eating" triggers a bit of heartburn or indigestion.
The Melaleuca First Aid Kit includes T36-C5, MelaGel, Triple Antibiotic Ointment, Clear Defense Wipes, CounterAct IB, DermaCort, flexible fabric and butterfly bandages, and more.

"What Products Do You Pack For Vacation?" Reviews
The people below will receive a free copy of The Melaleuca Wellness Guide for submitting their stories.
Products that I take on vacation: I take the Natural Insect Repellent wherever I go. Renew Lotion for after showers and sun, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner and other hair products. Makeup such as: mascara, eye shadow and foundation. Moisturizers (day and night), facial cleanser, lip balm, tooth polish, antiperspirant, gum and mints. I am sure I'm forgetting some but will remember next month when I go on vacation. Everything I use is a Melaleuca product. If Melaleuca makes it, I don't buy it anywhere else.
This is what I would pack for a vacation: Firstly my vitamin and minerals. I need good health to have fun. Then bug spray, especially for bugs when I pick berries in Ontario, Sunshades Sunscreen and After Sun Hydrogel E, Renew, the "Melaleuca first aid kit" with all the first aid items. Sol-U-Guard for cleaning and disinfecting, MelaPower for those items the kids like to wear every day, a quick over night wash. ProCare Dog Shampoo for the hound, as I know he will get dirty. You see being a Snowbird makes life easy; I carry all of my Melaleuca products with me all the time so they are at arm's reach. Twenty years is a great time to experience the products that I would miss if they were not available. When I think of this I am thankful that someone addressed the need for safer, better everyday products that we buy and use every day. I enjoy The Melaleuca Wellness Guide as I use it often for those other things that aren't listed.
I ALWAYS pack my vitamins when I go on a trip! I want to have the energy that I rely on...if I forgot my Essentials plus my Replenex I would feel it! I'm in my 70s and everyone asks me, "Where do you get your energy?" I answer, "I'll tell you sometime, what's your number?"
Vacation Products - My husband and I just got back from camping in the Adirondack Mountains in our 22 foot travel trailer. First on the list was Natural Insect Repellent. Tough & Tender was very useful for cleaning off tables. The floor of our trailer got pretty grubby so we sprayed it with Sol-U-Mel and then rinsed with clear water. It even cleaned the pine pitch off the floor. I also sprayed Sol-U-Mel on the mattress and pillows that had been locked up in the trailer all winter. We didn't take Clear Power with us, but we should have. The dog drooled on the insides of the windows and the outsides got dusty from pollen. Of course all of our personal care products were Melaleuca brand and they went with us. We took Lemon Brite for the dishes when paper dishes wouldn't work. We also took Sol-U-Guard Botanical and MelaPower with us just in case. As part of the food supply we had Attain Shakes and Bars with us, too.
What products do we take on vacation or a trip? I would have to say that two of the most important items are Renew Lotion, and a small bottle of Original Shampoo. I heard a story about a boy that used the Original Shampoo at school in the locker room when he showered. He had no problems with fungal infections or jock itch. I know that the Original Shampoo can be used as a body wash, too. No need to pack extra stuff. We just keep both of these items in our overnight bag already packed. One more important item is Sol-U-Guard Botanical. It is important to disinfect door knobs, bathroom handles, and the commode in a motel room. On a trip, we pack meal replacement bars, Sustain Sport in a bottle to drink, and in a canister. For first aid, we take along Mel-A-Gel and a tube of Pain-A-Trate. I make a very detailed list of items for a trip so we don't forget anything important. Thank you, Melaleuca, for making our trip easier and safer.
Sharing what Melaleuca products we take on vacation is a long list because we use ALL Melaleuca products. We are going to spend our 3rd summer in a row in a condo on the beach in Florida. When I pack we'll be taking the laundry products, Diamond-Brite dish soap, So-U-Guard Hand Soap, So-U-Guard Disinfectant, Sol-U-Mel, First Aid Kit with extra ibuprofen, Sunshades Sunscreen, Sunshades After Sun Hydrogel E, lip balm, Natural Insect Repellent, Sustain Drink Mix, SplasH2O, Simply Fit crackers, popcorn, Simply Fit Granola, deodorant, Gold Bar, Renew Lotion, Affinia Shampoo and Conditioner, Sei Bella Hair Detangler, all dental products and our vitamins. I wear very little make-up while on vacation so I'll just be taking enough to give me a little color should we go out. My beauty list is the Affinia face wash and moisturizer, Sei Bella Loose Powder, Sei Bella Mascara, Sei Bella neutral eye shadow and lip gloss. I love that just a week before we leave on vacation all our necessities will be shipped to our door ready for me to pack up.
Well, we NEVER go on vacation without my Sol-U-Mel! I use it to spray all the beds, carpets, drawers, and just as a room freshener in hotel rooms. BUT, this particular vacation, my son had some sour milk, and we were driving through the winding Smoky Mountains, and yes, he had not one, but two accidents on our way to Myrtle Beach. So we stopped at the next rest stop and cleaned the car and all his clothes with it. We also take the Melaleuca bandages and MelaGel, and Melaleuca oil, for those unexpected cuts and scrapes. For In the car, we pack the Simply Fit Granola Bars and Sustain to stay hydrated.
Heading to Idaho Falls this 4th of July to see the Melaleuca fireworks display for the first time and making sure we pack our Peak Performance, Tooth Polish, Gold Bar, and Mountain Cabin Coffee. The Sumatra is my get up and go. Best dark roast in the world.
We are heading to Disney the end of the month and many Melaleuca products are on my must pack list: Sustain and Activate to-go packets are a must when flying! The Sustain will prevent dehydration and the Activate will help ward off cold germs. Also we take hand sanitizer packs. A roller bottle of peppermint is great for headaches and nausea so that is always in my bag, Exceed Gum, and Sunshades sunscreen and lip balm! Happy Travels!!
These two are a must when on vacation or camping: Melaleuca oil and Renew. My husband got a pretty-bad sunburn while camping-boating. I put several pumps of Renew in my hand then added a few drops of Melaleuca oil to it and rubbed it onto his sunburn. The next morning he said that it didn't hurt anymore! Amazing stuff!!
