Travelling This Summer? 7 Essentials I Don't Leave Home Without!
Between the kids, the activities, the heat and all the things to do, these Summer months can get pretty hectic. So, I decided to share 7 Summer essentials that keep me balanced, happy and healthy during the Summer months. Give them a try, they may work wonders for you too!
1: Coconut Oil
I use my 100% pure cold-pressed Jamaican Coconut Oil for just about everything. In fact it has replaced so many expensive products in my cosmetic bag, it’s crazy! I use it instead of body lotion, as a make-up remover, for oil pulling to freshen my breath and whiten my teeth, as a deep conditioner for my hair (especially when I’m at the beach) and also as a light sunscreen... Did you know that Coconut Oil is an 11% natural sunscreen? It’s also the best thing to soothe your skin after a long day at the beach! I’ve created a 4 oz travel size so that you can just slip it in your beach bag… Remember, it’s important to use as many 100% natural products on your body as possible!
2: Coffee Body Scrub
I don’t go to the beach without my Detox Coffee Body Scrub made with so much goodness you can almost eat it! This natural exfoliant and cellulite reducer contains Ground Jamaican Coffee, Sea Salt, Brown Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E. I love to massage it into my skin, wait for about 20 minutes, then jump into the sea to wash it off… Your skin literally feels like silk and glows for days!!! It’s my favorite thing to share with friends at the beach!
3: Reusable Water Bottle
Water is ALWAYS important, but during the extra hot Summer months, it’s even MORE important to drink adequate amounts of water to keep yourself hydrated. Please do yourself and the planet a favor and STOP BUYING PLASTIC BOTTLES. Invest in a stainless steel or glass bottle instead. Be sure to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water each and every day, PLUS a little extra now that it’s so hot.
4: Coconut Opener
My coconut opener has been such a game changer in my life as it took the “man-factor” out of opening my coconuts. I just love it!! Coconut Water not only keeps you hydrated, but also provides a boost of important electrolytes that helps your body perform at its best. This handy gadget makes the best gift ever - for yourself and a loved one!
5: Live Fit Kitchen Cookbook
Summer is a time to lighten up your snacks and meals so that you won’t be bogged down by heavy food. My Live Fit Kitchen Cookbook contains over 100 mostly plant-based recipes that truly helps you Live Fit, Live Life and Live Love… I’ll be packing a few of them as gifts for my hosts when I travel this Summer! Hey, if you want to bring a signed copy with you as a gift when you travel, email, click here!
6: Magic Muscle Rub
My all-natural Muscle Rub is AMAZING! I keep this with me throughout the year to help alleviate some of the aches and pains from an active lifestyle. Made with 12 Jamaican herbs, this 100% natural Muscle Rub is especially important during the Summer months when you’re probably even busier running around with your family, plus working out a little harder for bikini season.
7: Live Fit Shirts
I LIVE in my Live Fit, Live Life, Live Love T-Shirts! Made from 100% cotton, they keep you super cool and are available for Men and Women in XS, S, M, L and XL. In fact, check out my new one, LIVE JAMAICA T-Shirts - it is so cool and perfect if you are travelling and want to ‘represent’!
And, last but not least, no matter where I go, whether it’s to Kingston for a night or a 2-week trip, I never leave home without my Yoga Mat and Essential Oils. Even if I only get 5 minutes on my mat to breathe, relax and let go, it’s worth it! Bring your mat (even if you have to dust it off) with you on your next vacation, roll it out and see what happens...your body will tell you what it needs if you truly listen!!
Check out the SHOP on my beautiful new website for most of these incredible Summer essentials! Plus, if your order comes to $100 or more, you’ll receive a FREE Coffee Body Scrub!
I hope you have a healthy, happy, peace-filled Summer!
Cheers to Summer Love,
