Tips for Surviving a long haul flight

Posted on by Abbie Coombes

The idea of lounging beside a pool, with the Caribbean sun beaming down and a cocktail in hand, certainly appeals. The eight hour plus, flight to get there perhaps, doesn't so much. The prospect of screaming children, someone constantly kicking the back of your seat, and being stuck next to the one person on the flight that suffers with altitude sickness, is bound to fill anyone with dread. This summer, we want to make sure that you feel as comfortable as possible on your plane journeys, and have compiled a list of our top survival tips for any long-haul flight.

So, you've had to get up at ridiculous o'clock to get to the airport, but you're thinking to yourself, 'it's okay though, because I can get some shut-eye on the plane.' With agitated children and rowdy passengers in the equation, this is often easier said than done. From sleep oil, travel neck pillows and eye masks, we know just the stuff that can help to block everything out and have you dreaming of Pina Coladas in no time!

Seascape Island Apothecary's Soothe Sleep Oil, with its subtle scent of Lavender, is the best aid to helping you doze off. It instantly relaxes the body and just requires a small amount to be applied to the temples, pulse points or under the nose. Its effects are profound, and was in fact, a finalist in the 'best 'stress less' beauty/ bath product' category at the Beauty Shortlist Awards in 2015. This 8ml sized bottle makes it perfect for popping in your hand luggage.

Masters of Mayfair's Luxury Travel Neck Pillow and Eye Masks have been specifically designed with the maximisation of sleep in mind. All of their products are made from the natural and finest ingredients, whilst the natural Lavender scent that emanates from their eye mask, serves to compliment the Seascape Sleep Oil. Many of us aren't particularly fond of Lavender because we feel its scent is far too overpowering, this is however, not the case with these lightly scented products.


Before popping on the oil, sleep mask and resting your head back on the travel neck pillow, you'll want to make sure you're as comfortable as you can be, whilst sat on the very confined space of the plane seat. With a breathable 100% natural cotton T Shirt by the White T Shirt Co, you can be sure to have that comfy travel outfit sorted.  

The White T Shirt Co produces stylish t shirts that are extremely conscious of their environmental impact. Sharing the goal of the company in Denmark, Green Cotton, The White T Shirt Co has sought to produce items of clothing with sustainability in mind. So, you can feel comfortable both in your own skin and on the flight!
