Nothing says it’s summertime than the word vacation and nothing says vacation like a good old fashioned family ROAD TRIP! Sounds good in theory, but the very next question is where? In part 3 of our Summer of Fun with Essential Oils series we will give you a few neat ideas of road trip destinations sprinkled in with how you can use Essential Oils while on the road or on-the-go!

National Geographic highlighted a few great road trips and excursions that will share below that are awesome road trip family experiences!

Distance: 105 miles

Time: 6 to 8 hours

Season: Spectacular spring bloom and fall foliage. Fall weekends are crowded; in winter road occasionally closes due to weather. Distances designated by mileposts. Admission fee to park.

Teetering atop the narrow spine of the Blue Ridge, the Skyline Drive gazes down on the fertile Shenandoah Valley to the west and rolling foothills to the east. Inhabited by Native Americans, then mountaineers, this wild back country became Shenandoah National Park in the 1930s.

The secret to a good road trip is to keep everyone in the car calm and happy.

Add your favorite Essential Oils to a cotton ball  and place in the A/C vent, or try the USB Orb Diffuser! This fun combo smells like an orange-scicle treat.

Add Essential Oils to diffuser or cotton ball and enjoy the calming and wonderful aroma and watch the stress melt away!

Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway

Distance: 480 miles

Time: 3 to 4 days

Season: Spring through fall. Some side trips are on unpaved roads that can be impassable after rain or snow; check locally before proceeding.

Traces of prehistoric “thunder lizards” highlight the route through an expanse of Utah and Colorado. Dinosaur fossils and footprints date from 150 million years ago, when conditions were right for preserving the bones of huge plant-eaters and those of the fierce carnivores that preyed on them. As you drive this loop, you’ll pass rugged red-rock canyons, spectacular geological formations, and cottonwood-lined rivers flowing through rolling, arid, high-plains terrain.

Distance: 54 miles

Time: 2 hours

Season: Spring through fall. Spring bloom occurs in April and May; fall foliage peaks from mid-October to early November.

Built in the late 1960s expressly for grand views, this two-lane highway ripples over the gentle Ouachita Mountains along the border of Oklahoma and Arkansas. Evergreen and deciduous trees shoulder the road, the latter making for gorgeous floral displays in spring and brilliant color in autumn.

Can’t Get Away? Try the Diffuser Stay-Cation!

If a road trip or vacation away is not in the plans for you or your family, diffuse these combinations at home or work for a vacation state-of-mind!
