Travel Essentials

by Rona Berg

These great discoveries may seem to be a bit off the beaten path, but after you try them once, you won’t be able to go anywhere without them.

A Clear Vision

Coco Chanel once said, “If it isn’t comfortable, it isn’t luxury.” The team at SALT. Optics seems to have absorbed that into the DNA of the brand. Made in Japan, with incredibly lightweight titanium, with designs inspired by nature—the Lorna features a subtle pattern that reminds me of flat rocks in a river—the sunnies and prescription frames are incredibly stylish in a low-key, understated way. These will definitely give contact-lens wearers pause, and who knows how many may consider switching to this amazing eyewear instead! saltoptics.com


Peace of Mind

A sleek set of 10 miniature oils, the Aromatherapy Associates Miniature Bath & Shower Oil Collection is perfect for a gift or for travel, with blends like Deep Relax, De-Stress Mind and Revive Evening, to help you tackle a business meeting—or difficult relatives—in a perfect state of mind.  aromatherapyassociates.com 


Stay Connected

The new Flight 001 F1 5-in-1 Universal Travel Adapter + USB may be a mouthful, yet this small-but-sturdy adapter classic 4-in-1 not only plugs in to outlets in 150 countries, it has been upgraded and now features two USB ports to keep you fully charged wherever you go. flight001.com


Style with Substance

Compression socks—and leggings and tights—may conjure images of senior citizens, but these Vim & Vigr Compression Socks, above, are not only really cute, they help relieve swelling, achiness and even combat the risk of deep vein thrombosis clotting on long-haul travel flights. Gentle compression stimulates the circulation and keeps legs and feet feeling energized. vimvigr.com


Shower on the Go

If you are roughing it—i.e., heading to a place where you will be working up a sweat and showers may be scarce—or even traveling on a long-haul flight, toss a few of these Yuni Shower Sheets into your pack or carry-on. Biodegradable and compostable, these handy sheets, with botanical ingredients like peppermint and rosemary essential oils, green tea leaf and cucumber extracts, will leave you feeling clean and refreshed (Image Above).   yunibeauty.com
