Essential Oils: Nausea in Pregnancy

Essential Oils Nausea in Pregnancy

Nausea associated with pregnancy….. One of the worst things about pregnancy. This pregnancy my nausea was so bad, I seriously thought I was going to be admitted to the hospital for dehydration at one point. I remember at one point crying because I was absolutely miserable. Yes, I was running to the bathroom every hour and barely could keep sips of water down.

I tried using a RX for zofran but all it was doing was making my constipated and have massive headaches. So I didn’t want to keep taking something that was obviously not working.

I turned to my friend Kari and asked her what Essential Oils I could try for nausea associated with pregnancy. Not only did she bring me over some oils but my other friend Natasha let me borrow her  Diffuser which was amazing! Seriously huge thanks Natasha for letting me use it for so long!  I diffused Peppermint Oil on a daily basis and also would add a tiny bit of Peppermint Oil to the inside of my wrist so I could inhale it as needed. Not only was the Peppermint oil seemed to help with my nausea but also my head tension.

Oils to Try:

Ginger, Lavender, Peppermint Oils (separately)

Usage:

  • Apply topically behind ears and over navel hourly
  • Diffuse into the air using a Diffuser
  • Inhale
