No matter the lifestyle you live or the way you choose to get outside the grind, there are a few things that should be simple. Finding the right products that will offer things you need without the mystery of what’s included isn’t something that should have to be on your pack list. For us, simply made, natural ingredients + conscious packaging are some of the most important factors when purchasing something new.
Sometimes, you get the whole shebang in one buy. Sometimes, there’s a little sacrifice that comes in exchange. But the one thing that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice is the ingredients that you’re putting in or on your body. This is not only important for your own health and wellness but equally, for the wellness of nature and the environment we live in.
Whether it’s packing a suitcase and hopping on a plane, stuffing a backpack to sleep under the stars or even just shacking up in your own space day to day, here are a few of our favorite TRIBE Tested Essentials for Travel. What’s best is you can use these every day, at home or off on a new adventure.

The ingredients list is short and filled with things you can find at your local healthy food store or grow in your own yard. Beeswax, Coconut oil, Maize (corn) starch*, baking soda, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coriander, Cypress, Sage, and Lavender Essential oils. This solid stick feels nice, smells nice and is one of the only natural ones that we’ve found that doesn’t irritate the skin while still fighting odor.

Roll on the immunity booster to pump up your body’s natural ability to fight off germs you’ll cross on planes, public transit or even on the trail. Wind down at the end of your day with a few swipes of the calm/sleep on your temples, chest + soles of your feet to help fall fast asleep no matter where you’re choosing to lay your head.
