Natural Motion Sickness Remedy!

Happy Friday! I’m so ready for the weekend, as I’m sure you are too! I’m excited to share a wonderful, natural motion sickness remedy that has helped me multiple times recently. I have struggled with motion sickness all my life. There are points on the road that bring my family much humor as they remember me barfing out the car window. Sorry…TMI? I’ve taken over-the-counter meds, tried homeopathic remedies and just suffered through. Not so fun!

With our most recent trips to Indiana and South Carolina for weddings two weekends in a row, we spent a lot of time in the car where motion sickness reared it’s ugly head once again. This time, I was prepared.

My husband pulled over and we switched places so I could drive…that always helps. Then, he diluted a drop or two of Young Living’s Peppermint Oil in some coconut oil and I rubbed it behind my ears and on my tummy and in my belly button.

Within five minutes my nausea was greatly reduced and within thirty minutes it was completely gone. Every time I started feeling sick, I just did the same thing and it helped each time. Peppermint oil, for the win!

This week, I ate something that didn’t agree with me. Again, I used Peppermint Oil on my tummy and it helped me feel much better and quickly too.

Young Living Peppermint Oil may also help with…

  • Nausea
  • Digestive Issues
  • Headaches
  • Mental Clarity
  • Breath Freshening
  • Appetite Suppressing
  • Fever Reducing
  • etc….

  1. My sister raves about Young Living. I am hooked, even before I’ve bought their products! For as long as I can remember I’ve struggled with motion sickness, and it’s even worse while pregnant. I can’t wait to order some of this great stuff!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I too tend to have motion sickness, more after my third child was born. That is why I always have a peppermint in my purse. They have been a cure all for tummy aches my whole life. now that I am older, I have switched to a peppermint tea. I still like some good old meclizine when I am flying.

  3. Thank you! My whole family suffers from motion sickness. Is this ok for kids to use? We are headed to Disney and I know some of those rides will do. me. in.

  4. I agree wth the peppermint candy, I have long suffered from motion sickness and my poor son has inherited this from me as well. I always carry peppermint candy or gum with me. My grandmother did this for me when I was younger.

  5. Is this silly? But I get so carsick on winding roads anymore I hesitate to put myself in the position to try!!! The giant Sequoaias are the tallest living things on earth. But the smell…oh it’s heavenly! But we have not gone as I’ve been getting more and more sick to see General Sherman and General Grant. (I’m sick foor three days) so when I’m brave ill try this? Or at least have my kids try it!!!
    Thank you forbhope

  6. What a good idea! I have mild motion sickness at times and Sea Bands® (those stretchable wrist bands with little knobs that hit acupressure points) always work well for me. I always wear them when we fly. Ginger root works well too, but this peppermint oil sounds like the very best solution for motion sickness. Thanks for sharing!

  9. This is great news! I love trying homeopathic or natural remedies and i am like you – get motion sick very easily! i use peppermint oil for headaches and muscle achiness – but will try it for motion sickness too!! is there a need to mix it with coconut oil? or is that just for ease in applying??

    Thanks for sharing! i never thought to use it for this!

    When I was a baby I cried on a road trip all the way from Florida to Michigan. My poor parents finally figured out I was carsick (and I have been ever since). Dr. Bob Jones, Jr., used to say to put a brown paper bag across your tummy. Of course I remember that tip but never tried it :) Once on a big 3 week trip to Europe, riding buses and boats, I wore the patch behind my ear. Found out later it’s way too strong. The two side-effects were drowsiness and blurred vision, um, not the best way to see Europe. It did work, because when I took it off one day to see if I could get by without it, I became sick within 30 minutes. When I got back to the USA I ripped that patch off as soon as the wheels hit the landing strip – and became deathly ill for three solid weeks. Obviously, I should have snipped the patch off in tiny pieces day by day…terrible withdrawal. Yeah, the peppermint sounds the best.

  11. I’ve struggled with mild Vertigo for over a week now, and will be flying on Tuesday. I read on line that Peppermint oil may help so a friend brought me hers. Are you aware of whether Peppermint Oil might help the symptoms of Vertigo?

  12. I was just curious can you use peppermint oil while your pregnant? Also, I know you had a natural birth with your second baby, were there any oils that you used during your pregnancy or birth?

      You can use Young Living peppermint oil while you’re pregnant. Once you begin breastfeeding, use it sparingly though, because in some women it causes their milk supply to diminish. I wasn’t using oils heavily during my last pregnancy/birth, but I definitely will for my next one. My midwife did use frankincense on Cameron after he was born. There’s a great book called Gentle Babies that’s all about oils during pregnancy/birth/the early years. :)

  13. Thank you for letting me know about this book. I was looking at it on Amazon it and it looks like it has great content! I’m going to get it. Our second baby is due in August so I’m enjoying reading a lot about natural child birth and natural remedies! I love this series you are doing.
