Easing Nausea with Essential Oils

Q:   What aromatherapeutic scent would be helpful to prevent nausea? Which essential oil is best for nausea?

A:    Ginger is the classic remedy for nausea that is a symptom of motion sickness. Ginger essential oil can be inhaled from a handkerchief that has a couple of drops on it but do not allow the oil to contact the skin or come too close to the eyes as it is very strong. Also, eating a piece of candied ginger may help. 

Other cases of nausea may be relieved by Coriander or Lavender essential oil, which may be inhaled as described above or used in massage (put 2 drops essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil such as sweet almond oil, olive oil, or grapeseed oil), mix well, and rub over the abdomen using a circular, clockwise motion. - Joie Power, Ph.D.
