This is a newly redesigned product….as we learn more, we improve our offerings. We have substituted the ginger essential oil we’ve used for years with our much more effective Ginger CO2 Total. We have also added a bit of Lemon Essential oil to my beloved Red Mandarine, because of new research showing the effectiveness of Lemon oil as an anti-emetic. Then we tweaked and balanced the proportions until it smells YUMMY.
Morning sickness is miserable, pure and simple. We’ve been looking at solutions that would be both effective and safe for the pregnant woman and the fetus. We thought of Peppermint, but there are those who advise avoiding it during pregnancy. Ginger is wonderfully effective, but the aroma of Ginger Essential Oil can be off-putting. So we turned to the group of nurse-aromatherapists who have been our mentors and received several suggestions for a blend of Red Mandarine (a potent anti-nausea oil by itself) blended with Ginger Essential Oil.
We tried the blend and found it delightful; it smells like a favorite Mandarine Spice tea. Because the components contained in the blend can be skin irritants, we wouldn’t use it topically. It can be inhaled by placing a drop on a tissue or a few drops in an inhaler. It’s delightful and a proven successful formula.
Please note, that although this blend is designed to deal with the misery of morning sickness, research and experience both indicate it should be helpful for car sickness, post-surgical nausea, or any transient episode of nausea. We are supplying it to several hospices and other institutions to deal with nausea among their clients.
Choose either a prepared inhaler OR the 5 ml synergy for diffusion.
