5 long-haul flight essentials
If you're going the distance on a long-haul flight, you need to think about what to pack to make the journey more comfortable. Here are five long-haul flight essentials that will make getting from A to B a breeze.

Long-haul flight essentials

Young Living Bon Voyage Travel Kit

Kidults leaving home for the first time will appreciate this Bon Voyage Travel Kit from Young Living. The kit has all the essentials they’ve been sponging off their baby boomer parents for years: toothpaste, lip balm, hand and body lotion, mouthwash and moisturiser. Best of all, the products come in a compact toiletry bag that makes it easy to freshen up before you meet your Old Aunt Maude in London town. 

Black Chicken Remedies

Jetlag begone. The range of Essential Oil Blends, Nasalette Essential Oil Inhalers and Sleep Aids in the Sleep Repair Pack by Black Chicken use the olfactory system to focus on different areas of wellbeing. We recommend taking the Featherlite Silk Eye Mask and Slumber Naselette on your next red-eye flight so you have energy to burn when you arrive at your destination.

A Vaya Life Drynk Tumbler

It’s not enough to pay to offset your carbon when you fly. Eco-concious travellers should pack a sustainable water bottle in their carry-on to actively avoid having to use the single-use plastic bottles doled out during the dinner service. The bottle is good for both hot and cold drinks and you can ask the flight attendant to top up your leak-proof tumbler with water so you don’t have to buzz them to stay hydrated.

Ocinium Discovery Set

If you’re a bleisure traveller (mixing business with leisure) you will love the compact Brighten and Illuminate Set from Ocinium. These three 10ml skincare companions will be your best friend at 30,000 feet when the cabin pressure is sucking all the moisture from your skin. If you’re travelling to a big city, apply a few dabs of the Antioxidant and Pollution Defence Set, which promotes DNA repair and cellular regeneration and protects your skin against pollution, UV and stress.

Noise-cancelling headphones

Noise-cancelling headphones don’t cut out all the noise of a crowded plane but they will certainly reduce the droning sound of the engine. The Bose QuietComfort 20 are in-ear buds that will also help to reduce the sound of the bloke blathering on about himself in seat 4C behind you. These comfortable in-ear noise cancelling headphones are a notch up on the tangled plugs provided by the airline.
