Healthy Airplane + Voice Care Travel Hacks
Feb 14, 2020
My healthy airplane travel / travel voice care routine includes:
- 😷 Wearing a mask at all times on the flight not only keeps viruses and germs away, it keeps the air I breathe more moist. Great for immunity + vocal care!
- A drop of Thieves (or Doterra OnGuard) oil inside the mask and under my nostrils
- A drop of sesame oil or ghee inside each nostril periodically throughout the flight, whenever my nose gets dry
- Drinking LOTS OF WATER with EmergenC (500 ml for every hour in the air, ideally)
- Walking around the airplane and stretching regulary. (I book an aisle seat so I can get up to use the bathroom and take walks around as often as I want, usually every 2-3 hours.)
- Sipping warm Tulsi tea (It's an adaptogenic herb that helps the immune system.) I take my travel mug to the bathroom with me and gargle sometimes, too.
- Taking a gentle laxative (I like castor oil pills, or Himālayan herbals Herbolax) on a night flight, so things come out smoothly in the morning. Sorry if that's TMI but it's important not to get backed up! Constipation = inflammation, and inflammation = mucous and a cozy nesting place for viruses to grow.
- Doses of Nutribiotics grapefruit seed extract or Colloidal Silver for extra immunity
- I take my regular multivitamins too.
- Good handwashing and hand sanitizer as often as possible
It's especially important for singers to take good care of their health, especially their respiratory health, when travelling.
