Peppermint Oil by Young Living
This has been quite the game changer for anyone that experiences nausea. We were introduced to this oil during an aerial yoga class, 20 minutes in, the motion from switching positions and swinging was making Jessica quite sick. When she mentioned it to the teacher she gave her this peppermint oil, within a few minutes Jessica was feeling better and was able to continue. Since that day we use peppermint oil to balance any nausea caused by motion, including aerial yoga, pole dancing and long car rides :) We love this product so much that we wanted to share it with all of you.
