Whether you’re on the seven seas, riding a roller coaster or simply trying to drive home from work, motion sickness is something that affects many of us from time to time. Rather than skipping out on the activities you love, try using essential oils to help ease mild nausea.
Here are some oils that may ease some of the effects of mild motion sickness: Anise, Basil, Chamomile, Dill Weed, Fennel, Frankincense, Ginger, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Spearmint.
Create your own blend using the aforementioned oils, or try our In-Motion Blend, made with Anise, Ginger, Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils. All you need to do is add some carrier oil, or add it to a diffuser or inhaler… and you’re ready to go!
There are several options for applying these oils, but the method we recommend is through a diffuser. What’s great about this method is that it can be used at home, the office, and even in the car. At home diffusers allow you to release oils and their properties into the air. Car diffusers provide the same benefits, but have the added bonus of on-the-go use.

Place the diffuser into the cigarette lighter outlet. The small light on the top of the diffuser will let you know when it is plugged in correctly.
