Travel is all fun and games until your body says otherwise. One minute you’re having the time of your life; the next, you’re clinging to your travel buddy because ang sakit na ng katawan mo.

White Flower oil is one of the most effective essentials for motion sickness, muscle pain, and more that we can all vouch for. It comes in mini bottles, making it convenient and easy to carry around for trips; or for titos and titas, just for daily life.
