In an interview with US beauty bible Allure magazine back in 2014 the former Suits star revealed that she always carries a small bottle of tea tree oil with her whenever she leaves home. "The one thing I cannot live without when I'm travelling is a small container of tea tree oil," she told the interviewer.

"It's not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what, 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."

The multitasking wonder, which is used in beauty products from tea tree oil clay masks to tea tree oil shampoo, isn't just known for its topical medicinal properties. It can also be used as aromatherapy and combined with other essential oils, working best with rosemary, lavender and eucalyptus.

As well as tea tree oil, Meghan Markle has previously revealed that she always brings a First Class Leather Tech Case by British brand Stow London with her on trips, in order to keep all her gadgets and paperwork organised. In a post from her now-deleted Instagram, Meghan shared a pic of the accessory, alongside the caption "packing for tomorrow with a few of my essentials".
