Pack like a Pro | Solidifying your Toiletries, literally.

As far as maintenance levels go, I am the lowest of low maintenance.  If it were up to me, I would just jump into the ocean everyday, rinse off in some freshwater and be done with it.  So this is not for most people, but if you are packing for a quick hassle-free adventure weekend away, this will be helpful.

When I am buying toiletries I am always thinking about the following things:

  1. Can I bring it on the plane?
  2. Is it natural/organic?
  3. Can I buy in bulk and then refill my own travel size bottles?
  4. How much space/weight is it going to take up?

Everything that I use in the bathroom fits into my Ethnotek Padu Dopp bag.  



I have gone through a few different types of shampoo, conditioner, leave-in oil combos; and for someone who has damaged hair, this is what I travel with.  

Body Wash

Toothbrush, toothpaste


Coconut oil

Lavender essential Oil

  • Now Foods Essential Oil, I refill from a large bottle

Nail ClipperS

For the Ladies: Period Cup


  • Lush, Ethique, and Schmidt's all have powdered form in glass containers



UPDATE: A new store called The Social Space has recently opened
and there you can refill your soaps and buy eco and fair trade goodies
