Over the years, I’ve tried all kinds of tricks for relieving morning sickness and nausea naturally. There are so many great natural remedies out there including good, old-fashioned ginger tea. But sometimes, when you’re just that sick, you can’t even stomach ginger tea.

5 Essential Oils for Nausea
These five little bottles have been my nausea busters this pregnancy, and can I just tell you that while there is no perfect cure for nausea, I’m sure these helped me get through some tough days. As a busy mom who really can’t afford to be down for long, they were my go-to remedies for months, and I’m so grateful for them!
This is a new addition to the Young Living family, and was designed with nausea relief in mind. Simply open the bottle and sniff a few times to help alleviate nausea.
You can also inhale this little wonder from the bottle, or you can diffuse near you for a couple hours. I’ve often rubbed Peppermint on my wrists to keep handy for a quick sniff. If you can handle it, one drop in a glass of water can relieve gastric upset that might be responsible for some of the nausea.
I can’t say enough about how soothing Lemon is when you’re nauseated. Inhale it, diffuse it, drink it in your water – it helps! One drop in a big glass of water improves digestion, provides a refreshing drink (even if sipped slowly), and can curb some of the nausea.
While it doesn’t smell fantastic (see the powerful ingredient list), it does work. Dilute with organic olive oil or carrier oil of your choice and apply over neck and chest to reduce reflux, and over tummy for upset stomach and nausea. Many people report success with dropping it under the tongue or rubbing on insides of their cheeks. If you are able to handle that, then go for it. But using it topically for now will provide some much needed relief.
This oil is soothing, too. Like lemon, it’s easy to enjoy the smell. Strong, but not overwhelming, it can help cut through the nausea. You can always just open the bottle and inhale, or even diffuse. I like to wear it in my diffuser necklace, on my wrists, and even behind my ears when the nausea is bad.
