We also love requesting a humidifier from our hotels, again because it helps keep our skin hydrated and we wake up more refreshed!

I bring our saffron latte wellness blend with me because It makes me feel nourished when I drink it as my morning “breakfast” before I start my day- while traveling or not.

What are your favorite Eco-Friendly Products to travel with?
