We love to travel, but endless miles and you may sometimes experience occasional nausea from sitting in a car for too long. Something I found that really works for me and others I know is dōTERRA Ginger essential oil. dōTERRA Ginger can help reduce occasional nausea by either being applied topically or inhaled.* I diffuse it in the car diffuser for everyone to enjoy or place a drop of ginger in the palm of my hand and inhale to create a soothing aroma.
Achy joints from sitting too long?
Ginger has a longstanding reputation for reducing chronic inflammation due to the anti-inflammatory effects of gingerols, which are compounds in the ginger plant. Ginger essential oil may contain other compounds that help to ease the symptoms of RA, too.
A 2016 study Trusted Source investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of ginger essential oil in rat models of RA. Rats that had received injections of the oil exhibited reduced rates of chronic joint inflammation. However, further studies involving human participants are necessary to confirm the effects.
People can try diluting ginger essential oil in a safe amount of carrier oil and applying it to the joints.
