First off, I have to admit that I have a awful phobia of vomiting. I cannot stand it. Anytime that I feel even slightly nauseous I start to panic!

One day I was getting very nauseous, and my mouth was starting to water. I thought, "Oh, no! I am gonna throw up!" But I took a deep breath and decided to try my essential oils to see if they could stop it in its tracks.

I mixed some vegetable oil with a couple drops of Peppermint, a drop of Lavender, and a drop of the DiGize oil blend. I then rubbed this mixture around on my belly. Next I put Peppermint and Lavender in my diffuser in my bedroom and let the aroma go all around me.

Lastly I put a drop of Lavender onto my hands, rubbed them together, and inhaled deeply a few times. I kept breathing deeply with my eyes closed. I just listened to the hum of the diffuser and inhaled the Peppermint/Lavender aroma.

Within 20 to 30 minutes, I slowly started to realize that I was NOT going to throw up. What a relief! As the minutes passed, the nausea kept lessening. Finally it was gone, and I even had my appetite back and grabbed some crackers.

What a blessing to have a natural remedy to help with something as horrible as nausea, especially for someone like me, who is terrified of vomiting. The essential oils did the job for me. I will definitely be using them in the future whenever I feel nauseous again!
