So we’re pulling out all the stops today to “cure” motion sickness with oils.

  1. Digestive Blend
  2. Ginger
  3. Peppermint
  4. Lavender 

These main 4, you may want to bring full sizes of. You can put these in a clutch like that will keep the oils upright, protected, and easily accessible. 


Bring cotton balls, drop a bit if essential oil on the cotton ball and smell.

For kids, you can turn this into a game. Like “guess that smell.” Use fun and different smelling oils to keep them entertained, and benefitting from aromatherapy at the same time! (we love: cilantro, lime, black pepper, and grapefruit)


You can also combat motion sickness by diffusing oils in the car!
