3 Essential Oils for Nausea (+ how they work!)

Keep a naturally calm tummy with essential oils for nausea

When your belly doesn’t feel settled, it’s often a sign that something isn’t quite right. And it’s really hard to focus on anything else!

Sometimes nausea occurs because we’ve eaten something that doesn’t agree with us. Other times it’s because we’re traveling and feel a little unsteady. Nausea can also accompany anxiety (bad timing if we’re nervous before a performance or presentation!)

I want to talk about some of my favorite essential oils for nausea and indigestion. These are oils that can help settle your belly, ease spasms, relax muscles, and support circulation. We want to support our bodies to feel stable and secure, while still supporting our digestive system to “do its thing.”

3 Essential Oils for Sleep (Do you have these?)

An effective, sweet-smelling way to use 3 essential oils for sleep!

Getting enough sleep is a popular reason that people turn to essential oils. Fortunately, there are a lot of essential oils for sleep that can help calm overthinking and soothe the nervous system.

This blend includes three of them: Lavender, Green Mandarin, and Bergamot.

This is actually a stock blend recipe, which means we’re making more than we need for a single session of diffusing. We’re going to use a 5 ml bottle with an orifice reducer. Since you only need to diffuse about 5–6 drops of essential oils for sleep, you’ll have plenty “in stock” if you want to use it again! This blend can last several weeks or months, depending on how often you use it.

Make “Sacred Body Oil” to Nourish Skin + Spirit!

What makes a “sacred body oil”? We can start with essential oils traditionally used in rituals and for purification!

One thing I love about essential oils is that they manage to heal us on multiple levels at once.

Let’s take Frankincense essential oil, for example.

Frankincense is amazing for skin care and respiratory support. It eases inflammation, soothes irritation (like itching or pain), and supports skin to heal itself. It’s great for headaches and muscle tension, too.

But Frankincense also helps soothe us emotionally and mentally. It’s been used throughout history for things like meditation, rituals, contemplation, and sacred body oil and perfume.

Frankincense essential oil supports us body and mind (and heart!)
