Motion sickness, in the form of air sickness and car sickness, had plagued me my entire life – until about seven years ago. If you’ve had this experience, you know how miserable it can be!
When I began using a certain combination of essential oils, all of that became history! What works for me is a combination of anise, fennel, ginger, juniper, lemongrass, peppermint, and patchouli. Many of these oils are known for their digestive properties, and some of them, like patchouli, have compounds which are known to combat nausea. AUBBC Adjustable Airplane Footrest B07RRGGHQ3
A number of ways of using this oil combination have been successful for me.
1. Apply topically.
When I first started using this blend, it was in airplanes. I would simply put a few drops on my tummy. It takes only 3 to 5 drops. Please don’t use more, as this special blend does not have a pleasant perfume or cologne scent!
The Essential Oils Desk Reference recommends diluting this blend with a high quality vegetable oil, but with current carry-on restrictions in air travel, I don’t.
Have you ever been flying and got that I’m-going-to-throw-up sensation? Much to my surprise, When I pulled out my bottle of this blend of essential oils and began inhaling it, my stomach became calm within 30 seconds.
3. In a capsule.
What I do now is put 3-6 drops in a capsule before takeoff. This works for me almost 100% of the time. In the rare event of severe air turbulence, I just get out my handy bottle containing the special blend and inhale.
The Essential Oils Desk Reference recommends diluting this blend with vegetable oil, but once again, because of carry-on-restrictions, I don’t.
With this special blend of essential oils, I can now ride in the back seat of a car and can travel by plane with ease.
