When should you apply Essential Oils? When you want nausea and stomach relief.
In this video I’m sharing two essential oil blends for nausea.
There’s an Aromatherapy inhaler and a topical blend you can apply to your belly and low back, so we’re approaching nausea in two ways. I love using these blends together so they can complement one another. They’re especially helpful when I’m traveling!
If you’ve never made an Aromatherapy inhaler, I explain what they are at 0:45. They are so convenient to carry with you and use anywhere you go!
Good news! Aromatics International recently started carrying inhalers with organic wicks. You can find those here:
The oils for the inhaler are:
6 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) (1:31)
7 drops Green Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) (1:52)
3 drops Cardamom (Ellettaria cardamomum) (2:19)
I make the topical blend at 3:28. I’m adding the oils to a base of 2 oz. (56 gm) aloe vera gel in a 2 oz. (60 ml) PET plastic bottle. (I prefer to use glass with essential oils, but PET plastic is known as a non-reactive plastic that doesn’t leach. In cases where glass isn’t ideal, such as for a blend that might get tossed around in luggage, PET plastic works great.)
At 4:13 I fill my bottle with 2 oz. (56 gm) aloe vera gel. Then I add:
5 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) (4:34)
5 drops Green Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) (4:51)
3 drops Cardamom (Ellettaria cardamomum) (5:05)
3 drops Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) (5:33)
I got more drops of a few of the oils than I planned to (the oils come out fast!), but that’s okay. Just tip your bottle slowly to try to control your drop count, but don’t worry if you get too many.
