DIY Anti-Motion Sickness Spray

DIY Anti-Motion Sickness SprayRiding in a moving vehicle, such as a plane, train, automobile, or boat, or perhaps rides at the amusement park, may cause nausea due to motion sickness.

Rather than take prescription or over-the-counter drugs, why not try something natural, without the potential side effects?

Essential Oils Calm the Queasies!

Use aromatherapy for a wonderful, natural way to subdue that queasy feeling. Our DIY anti-motion sickness spray is made with essential oils and has an aroma that will relax the mind and body, clear your senses, and is very refreshing!*

Try making our DIY anti-motion sickness spray to calm nerves, diminish nausea, and curtail dizziness.*

Ingredients
A small spray bottle
1 tablespoon carrier oil
5 drops peppermint
5 drops lavender
3 drops lime
2 drops ginger

Directions

  1. Combine essential oils and carrier oil in spray bottle.
  2. Fill the bottle with water the rest of the way. Shake vigorously.
  3. Spray on wrists, neck, and above navel. Temples, too.

Peppermint, alone, is one of the most effective essential oils that helps you against the symptoms of motion sickness.* Keep a bottle of peppermint oil on hand when traveling if you haven’t made a bottle of our DIY spray.

Open the bottle and take several deep breaths, inhaling the oil. Do this prior to traveling (alternatively, try one single drop of oil on your tongue). Inhale the oil when you’re nauseated, too.

Here’s another tip to help with motion sickness: Robert M. Stern, PhD, professor of psychology at Penn State University, has studied motion sickness for the past 15 years, and recommends not to travel on an empty stomach.

His advice is to eat small, low-fat meals or snacks, every few hours. He also states that protein is a better choice for reducing nausea, and fat, greasy meals can contribute to the development of nausea.
