Why Each Essential Oil Is Used
- Peppermint – Peppermint tea is often suggested as a remedy for nausea, but the essential oil can have the same soothing effect. Peppermint oil, some researchers believe, relaxes the gastric muscles and keeps them from cramping up or over-contracting. One scientific review concluded that inhaling peppermint oil when you feel nauseous will improve your symptoms and have you feeling better quickly.
- Ginger – Ginger essential oil has been studied as a remedy for nausea and motion sickness. People swear by it, and the research agrees that it works. Ginger oil can be diffused into the air with an oil diffuser, rubbed onto pressure points at your forehead and wrists, or even rubbed directly on your stomach to improve nausea. One clinical trial revealed that this remedy is particularly effective for people that experience nausea while recovering from surgical anesthesia. Ginger is also generally considered safe for pregnant women experiencing nausea.
- Lavender – Lavender essential oil is perhaps best known for its relaxing properties. Using lavender oil topically or in a diffuser can help your mind decompress as you get ready for bed. This same property can also make lavender effective in fighting nausea. If your nausea is caused by anxiety or physical pain, lavender’s power to relax might be just what you’re looking for. This remedy works best when you breathe in slowly as the scent fills the air.
- Sweet Orange – The sweet scent of orange makes it an amazing anti-nausea essential oil. It’s been known to reduce stress, which is great if you suffer from anxiety-induced stomach aches. This is very versatile and pairs well with lavender, lemon, and ginger.
- Bergamot – Can be used in an essential old blend for nausea, dizziness, and light-headedness. Bergamot’s uplifting aroma will relax your senses, instantly making you feel better.
