Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I recently had arthroscopic surgery done for my knee, and, after waking from the anesthesia, I began to feel lightheaded and nauseous. After telling the nurse, she went to prepare a shot (my IV had been removed) with medication to help, but I declined.

Another nurse who stopped by the room mentioned something called "Quease Ease Aromatic Inhaler," which is a blend of Lavender, Peppermint, Ginger, and Spearmint essential oils. She asked if I wanted to try and use it by inhaling it. I was all for it since it was not medication.

When I began to breathe it in through my nose, the nausea dissipated almost instantly! I kept inhaling it nearly the whole way home until I could get to my own stash of essential oils, which I then also applied to my belly.

Thankfully, the nausea and dizziness never came back.
