Taking a trip and want to bring your oils? Can you fly with essential oils? You should! Don’t leave home without them! I never do, especially not when I travel with my children. Whichever oil I forget I always seem to end up needing, so I try to bring most of them and at least the big guns like Digestzen blend, On Guard for immune support, Helichrysum, etc.
Can you fly with essential oils? ?
You can absolutely fly with your oils!
Carry-on or check them?
I like to carry mine on because I know the temperature will be cool and I don’t risk losing them if my luggage is lost. ( Im fine without my clothes, toiletries, etc. but not my oils!). They are liquids, of course, so I recommend putting them in a quart size bag to go through security. For our family, I get 7 quart size bags which is more enough for our Hand cleaning spray, Bug repellant spray, rollers and oils but you may not have that luxury. If you have to, put what you can into the quart size bag and check the rest.
Many, many people just leave their oils in their carrying case (like these) and typically its not an issue. I was with a friend once, however, and her oils in the case flagged us to be checked for bomb making residues …. and it tested POSITIVE. Oops!! They retested and it was fine. Thankfully she got to keep her oils. Can you imagine if they took them?! I’d cry!! So play it safe if you can, if not then its up to you whether to risk it or just go ahead and check them. I’ve checked oils too and its been fine.
One note: roller bottles have a tendency to leak when flying. Like, a lot. So keep that in mind when you consider bottle vs roller.
