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.

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 nauseous 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.
