Ultimate Shrooms by Live Ultimate
You probably heard the buzz about Mushroom supplements already and thats because they do provide powerful immunity protection. There are ton of brands out there if you are torn between which is the best brand to buy and what to look for you can view our comparison blog post here.
For now, here is why we use mushrooms when travelling:
- Gut health: Our immune system is 70% powered by our gut. Our gut is heavily comprised when traveling with the exposure to different bacteria’s and diseases we are used to. Mushrooms act as a prebiotic to feed the good bacteria’s so that they can win the fight against the bad guys.
- Cognitive health: Mushroom’s help boost our mood, brain and energy levels. The adaptogenic properties in Mushroom’s are excellent to combat the stress our body encounters while travelling.
We particularly love Live Ultimate’s Ultimate Shrooms for using 100% of the fruiting bodies of mushrooms. Plus, the reviews speak for themselves!
Organic Olivia : Allergy Defense Tonic
Another amazing discovery of the year! Wow, Olivia always blows me away every time I try her amazing products. Always the best quality and we just love supporting her. We are not even affiliated to her in any way but we’ve been advocating for her since her beginning days of Organic Olivia on Instagram.
Allergy Defense Tonic is the perfect tincture for anyone who suffers from allergies like I do. Although this tincture was made for seasonal allergies, I have been even seeing successful results with this product for other airborne pathogens such as dust, mold, dust mites and animal allergens.
Allergy defense tonic is made up of:
- Nettle Leaf

As always Organic Olivia‘s ingredients are organic or wild harvested.
A Vogel Echinaforce Throat Spray
For any throat pain or cold, this dynamic duo of Sage and Echinacea will tackle the bug at the first onset of symptoms. Your throat will feel significantly feel better by the next day.
I don’t know about you but sometimes when I drink cold drinks my throat begins to hurt. I also get itchy throat easily from smoke.
This is actually one of the first herbal products I tried that converted me to herbalism for supporting my health so now I make sure there is always room for this throat spray in my travel health-essential list.
Traditional Medicinals Tea Bags
I don’t go anywhere without my tea’s. At Herbal Ladies, we particularly love Traditional Medicinal’s brand as they use ethically and organically farmed or wild-collected herbs. They have a team of trained herbalist’s to formulate the best pairings for your cup of tea and the company is also really obsessed with the quality of their products. We are huge fans of Traditional Medicinals!
Raspberry leaf is filled with Vitamins, minerals and antioxidant properties. such as:
- Vitamin B

I carry bags of Traditional Medicinal’s Raspberry leaf tea mainly to ease my period cramps and tone my uterus. Plus, tea bags take no room in your luggage! It’s a win-win situation.
