I spent Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week with (almost) all-day nausea and extreme fatigue. The fatigue is sticking around (I'm OK with that -- I have time to nap and let my body do what it needs to do). The nausea, however, has all but disappeared, and the credit goes to spearmint essential oil and lemon ginger tea. I'm just putting a drop of spearmint oil on my pillow at night, and sipping a cup of lemon ginger tea in the morning. So far, it seems to do the trick (the oil also makes my hair smell great!)! The spearmint idea came from a book called The Complete Book of Essential Oil and Aromatherapy, and the tea idea just seemed to make sense based on things we've heard before. I'm happy, because the nausea is really disruptive to daily life.
