My kids have a road trip coming up, and for us, that always means preparing for nausea. I whipped up this simple, DIY Essential oils for motion sickness recipe, and wanted to share with all of you, because summer means lots of car rides! Vacation is (a lot) more fun when no one is throwing up!
I love DiGize, Peppermint, and Ginger for all sorts of indigestion, and upset tummies; adults and kids alike.
My roller ball bottles, which you can find here, are about 1/3 of an ounce.
For my kids, I try to stay at around 1 part (25 drops) essential oils per roller ball. You can change that amount if you personally prefer more or less.
- 8 drops of Peppermint (Find out where I buy Young Living Essential Oils here)
- 8 drops of Ginger
- 9 drops of DiGize
Put the drops in your roller ball, and fill to the neck with carrier oil. I use fractionated coconut oil, but you can use Grapeseed, Jojoba, whatever you prefer.
Apply as needed! I have my boys roll in on the stomach, but you could put some behind your ears, on the back of your neck, etc.
About the essential oils-
Fresh, nostalgic, and instantly recognizable, Peppermint essential oil’s scent invigorates the mind and senses, while inspiring a sense of peace. Used topically, Peppermint oil creates a cool, tingling sensation on the skin, making it a favorite for sports massage and an important part of Young Living’s Raindrop Technique®.
When your day is dragging—through a workout, class, or day at work—enjoy some Peppermint oil benefits by applying it to your head and neck. The refreshing aroma will give you a boost of positivity! Peppermint is also a great option for diffusing on its own or with compatible scents such as Lavender, Rosemary, Spearmint, or Sage!- YoungLiving.com product description
