Even-Hotels-Branded-Ribbon

We’re looking for the next breakthrough in healthy travel. So we partnered with EVENⓇ Hotels to find the next big wellness necessity with a brand new competition called Mission Wellness: Seeking the Next Healthy Travel Innovation. More than 100 businesses gave us their best pitch, and we’ve narrowed down the field to the final 12—which means it’s time for you to get a say! Check out Esym below (and take a look at the businesses it’s up against), and cast your vote by October 20.

Esym

Portable aromatherapy pods and stones

The problem

It can be difficult to achieve the meditative part of your wellness routine while traveling, especially if you need time and space to do it. And without a way to recenter, it’s easy to feel out of balance and stressed by the unpredictability of always being on the go.

The solution

Esym portable aromatherapy pods use scent to tap into your limbic system, the part of your brain that controls memory and emotions (just sniff for a dose of soothing goodness). The scents are specifically designed to evoke mental states that are easily disrupted while traveling (rest, meditation, and joyful focus), and the pods are small enough to slip into your pocket with just the right amount of TSA-friendly essential oil. To transform your hotel room into a zen oasis, there are also scent stones, which diffuse aroma when you spritz them with oil.

The takeaway

These totable aromatherapy tools make it easy to ground yourself anywhere (even in a crowded train car or airplane cabin), and can elevate your entire travel experience.

Could this be the winner? Check out the competition and cast your vote here! (And do it fast—polls close October 20.)
