The $7 Aussie item pregnant Duchess Meghan never travels without

The $7 Aussie item pregnant Duchess Meghan never travels without

After landing in Sydney and announcing their pregnancy to the world, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex have caused quite the stir, and now, it’s been revealed what the Duchess carried with her on her flight Down Under.

Travelling with Australian airline, Qantas, Meghan is said to have brought with her an Aussie cult classic, and it only costs a mere $7.

In a resurfaced interview with Allure magazine, the Duchess revealed that she never travels anywhere without a bottle of Tea Tree oil.

“The one thing I cannot live without when I’m travelling is a small container of Tea Tree oil,” she told Allure.

“It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all.

“It’s inexpensive, it’s small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time.”

Having been an Aussie favourite for decades, Tea Tree oil is the cure to almost every problem, and it comes from a myrtle tree that is native to Queensland and NSW. The all-rounder oil works as an antiseptic to cure cuts, grazes and blemishes.

The oil is known for its affordable price, with many places retailing the natural remedy for $7. And if it’s good enough for the Duchess, then it’s good enough for us!
