This is my favorite backpack.

My doTerra Backpack

I don’t travel ANYWHERE anymore without a backpack.

Every year at our dōTERRA Convention, we get a new backpack and this one is several years old, but it is still my favorite so far. It has just the right pockets, holders for my oils, a padded sleeve for my laptop, pockets for a water bottle and more.

Find a good one and you won’t want to change either! :) So, for this post, let’s talk about what lives in my backpack!

Healthy Can Be Simple brochure front

Healthy Can Be Simple - back

I always keep a supply of informational brochures about my essential oils, with my business card attached, in my backpack. You NEVER know when you might run into someone who is interested and wants more info. This particular brochure allows me to do a complete one-on-one appointment on the spot with anyone who might be interested! The ziploc bag helps make sure that the brochures stay nice, don’t get wet or wrinkled or damaged and allows me to even stick some sample packs in the bag if I want to! Always be ready!

Misc. Contents of travel backpack

And finally, these are the items that just live in my backpack so I don’t forget them when I travel. Included are pens, a charger block for my phone or ipad, an extension cord that allows me to use one plug to charge up to 4 USB electronic items (we’re often in rooms with multiple people and we all know that hotel rooms NEVER have enough outlets)! I also include extra business cards, spot remover towelettes and screen cleaners, several roller bottles of oils (including Breathe and On Guard - to help keep my ears open when I fly and to help build my immune system even in the shared air in a plane) and Breathe and OnGuard Throat drops for the same reason! I pop a Breathe drop in my mouth as we begin to taxi for takeoff and again as we begin our descent to land and no longer have closed ears for hours after we land! (See why those are a non-negotiable?)

Here are links to my favorite phone/electronics charging blocks and the extension cord that I travel with (this is an old picture, so the one I currently have is different):
