Ginger is an amazing oil because of its effective digestive properties. Whether we’re talking about an upset tummy or severe nausea in pregnancy, ginger has been used for thousands of years as an effective digestive aid. It comes from the same family as cardamom and they both actually block the nausea receptors in the brain. These are my go-to oils for tummy upsets.

I also love ginger’s emotional concepts as well. It helps us to be fully present and participate in life. It teaches us that to be successful in life we must be fully committed to it and it’s hard to be fully committed with tummy issues.

    Hello, I am looking for a recipe for morning sickness. My daughter in-law is not familiar with essential oils (I use them personally) so, I want to prepare something that her husband can rub her feet with that would help with morning sickness. She is just starting her 3rd. trimester and has been given 2 different medications that she can only take periodically (I know typically these meds. are prob. not too good for a baby but, she has her Doctors ok). I was hoping to see if you had a recipe…. I was thinking ginger, peppermint, cardamom, but, do not know a good ratio. Also she is allergic to coconut would I not be able to use the frac. coconut oil? What other kind of oil would I use?

      Lisa I have lots of great information about this in my book Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies (second edition).
      Any digestive oils can support this but my favorite is cardamom. It is a member of the ginger family and they both block the nausea receptors in the brain. Apply one drop behind the ears and back of the neck.
