If you have ever had trouble with motion sickness, you know that traveling in a car, boat, or plane can be an extremely unpleasant experience. Feeling green on any form of transportation for any length of time is no fun!
Recently, I discovered a way to deal with my own motion sickness by using two different essential oils, layering one over the other. First, I applied ginger to my stomach area. Then, on top of that I rubbed on peppermint. I did this because peppermint has a way of driving in the oil beneath it.
As a result of this application, I was able to take a two hour car ride with my husband without any motion sickness at all. I could even turn around and reach for things in the back seat without feeling sick (something I'm not ordinarily able to do).
A week later I was able to test this same application for a plane trip. First ginger, then peppermint. I'm happy to report it worked just as well as it did for me in the car.
I'm looking forward to much more "green free" traveling, and can't wait to see how this works for a boat ride.
