What should one pack for a festival? It’s a tricky question – Pack too much and it becomes a faff, pack too little and your trip could turn out rather disastrous! We’ve highlighted below just a few handy bits and bobs we’ll be packing in our festival luggage this year to help inspire you!
Cleanse – Neals Yard Organic Facial Wipes
These are a god-send when you are away from your beloved bathroom! Having some gorgeous smelling wet wipes to hand is super helpful to remove makeup in a flash (because a deep hot cloth cleanse isn’t exactly easy in a tent) and they are also great for freshening up the body and just giving a sense of overall cleanliness! These Neal’s Yard ones are our fave because not only do they contain soothing aloe vera and antioxidant-rich white tea, but they are made with 100% biodegradable cotton. Win win!
Snack – MightyBee Coconut Jerky
Ok so this does sound a little strange but coconut jerky is actually really tasty! Especially the Chocolate and Hazelnut flavour from MightyBee! Packing portable snacks like this will be a real saviour when you’re needing a bit of a healthy energy boost!
Hygiene – Dr. Bronnor’s Lavendar Hand Sanitizer
Another serious must have for us at any festival has to be hand sanitizer! Muddy fields, public toilets… It’s just a no-brainer! But of course we want something super natural, pleasant-smelling and kind to our skin so we always opt for Dr. Bronnor’s Lavendar Hand Sanitizer. You can also double it up as a deodorant too!
Style – Faby’s Nature Collection Nail Polish
Summer festivals wouldn’t be the same without some pretty nails to finish off your outfit! We are loving Faby’s new natural nail polishes that are 87% natural and use ingredients derived from wood pulp, cotton, maize, cassava and other raw vegetable materials. Cool right? Known for being quick drying and chip resistant, we think packing a couple of colours is a great way to mix up your looks!
Sweat – Mara Hoffman Yoga Mat
Now, we all know that staying up all night dancing and festivals, go hand-in-hand, but, we all need a little beauty sleep to relax and unwind and this Mara Hoffman yoga mat is the perfect tent essential. Not only will it give you a super comfy base to lie down on and recuperate, it will also come in handy when the frantic nature of a festival gets a little to much and you want to do a little yoga to regenerate.
Sleep – Tisserand Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Roller Ball
Let’s face it – Getting quality sleep at any festival is going to be difficult, so we advise to pack a gorgeously fragrant Sweet Dreams Aromatherapy Roller Ball from Tisserand. As the name suggests, this nifty product will help calm the mind after a tired day of partying and help soothe you to sleep with it’s lavender and jasmine essential oils. Simply rub at your pulse points and let it work it’s magic. You’ll be dreaming in no time!
Hydrate – S’well Bottle
We also cannot forget to stay hydrated! Our beautiful selection of S’well bottles from our store are definitely a must have for festivals as they’ll keep your drinks hot for 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours! Choose your colour here!
