Travel is not just about a destination, it’s also about all that you need in that destination. And the main reason I carry some products with me as the body needs different things in different geographies. I have no intention of running around and wasting time when I could be doing happier stuff such as exploring the destination!

Pee Safe Intimate WashPee Safe Natural Intimate Wash

While travelling is a fun thing, or so it seems, it does take a toll on your physical health. Getting hygienic conditions can be a challenge at times. And that’s when intimate wash turns out to be a happy solution. But it’s not just travel, also during the menstruation for women. The constant flow of blood does prove to be discomfort, sometimes there is a pungent smell too. And a clean vaginal area in those days is a must. Living in a tropical country with heat and dust, we do tend to sweat often and need more baths. So, there are a lot of reasons for me to like this intimate wash.

On the usage: Its alcohol-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free and has witch hazel and tea tree essential oil. This is an Ayurvedic formula with no chemicals. All this means that the freshness lasts longer and it’s not harmful to the sensitive area. The bottle being small, it’s also easy to carry around. Besides, you only need a few drops and it lasts for a good 10-15 days.

Price: INR 180 for 105ml

Moskito Safe Scare-Away PatchesMoskito Safe Scare Away Patches

While Odomos is normally the better-known product, I am all for trying natural ones for scaring away the stingy mosquito. I have tried the patches on my bed for days now. And they truly work. The patches are made up of citronella, lemongrass and other essential oils. They don’t have a pungent odour nor are they harmful. The effect of one patch lasts for 12 hours which means you can easily sleep the night away. This would prove really useful for those who love camping and hiking.

It’s also safe for children and is DEET free. They can be stuck on any surface such as clothes, bags, strollers and cots. And you don’t find any glue mark on the fabric.

Price: INR 199 for 30 patches
