Summer Holiday Essentials!

Here are Wholefoods top must-haves for summer holidays.

With only one month left of summer we hope that this blog with last minute tips will help with organising that trip you’ve been looking forward too!


If you are going to travel, don’t’ forget to include some basic essentials for the trip. Long journeys are generally not enjoyable; however, for those that experience the symptoms of travel sickness they can be even more unpleasant. To help relieve these symptoms, remember to pack Nelsons Travella. It contains a unique combination of seven homeopathic remedies, each specifically chosen to help bring soothing relief for the unpleasant symptoms associated with travel sickness.  Seaband-seabandsea-band-motion-sickness-travel-nausea-vomiting


If your holiday includes a boat trip then Sea-Band is the natural way to relieve motion sickness.  This product is great as it is suitable for both adults and children as Sea-band operates by applying pressure to the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist!




Suffer from Holiday Anxiety and a Fear of Flying?

Feeling anxious and overwhelmed are common symptoms of holiday travellers, especially for those who fear flying. The thought of sitting trapped in a plane for even a couple of hours can be a terrifying prospect.

Nelson’s Rescue Remedy helps us relax, get focused and get the calmness we need during those stressful moments! A few drops taken on the day of the flight can be very helpful in dealing with feelings of anxiety and panic. A few sprays or drops can be taken as often as required during the flight until the person feels calmer and in control. It is also safe to take alongside other medications”




Because Irish skin is not generally accustomed to sunshine, protecting your sensitive skin from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays is very important. Hoping that where you travel to has a lot of sunshine, here are our top picks for Parasol+suncare+suncreen+naturalskincare in the sun!

One application per day protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays, while still letting the sun rays through to give you a lasting tan.

After a long day outdoors you can apply Optima Aloe Pura Vera Gel!

If you are the active type and fill your days with walking and activity during your holidays, then A. Vogel Venagel is perfect to help tired and aching legs.  Swollen ankles can also be an unwelcomed side effect of flying, especially on long flights. Applying A.Vogel Venagel made from Horse Chestnut as it will cool your legs and help to reduce the swelling and sense of fatigue.
