This article caught my attention because it mentioned using a natural remedy of peppermint oil under your tongue to help manage motion sickness.
I am strong believer in natural healing. I personally use herbs, aromatherapy and essential oils to help cure sickness.
As a flight attendant, I see many passengers experience motion sickness or air sickness. Some passengers use medication, other passengers don't use anything.
Some first time flyers find out that they have air sickness or that their stomachs can't stand turbulence.
"The aroma of peppermint oil is extremely refreshing, with the ability to clear the head, increase mental clarity and alertness, and sharpen the senses. Peppermint oil is also beneficial for reviving individuals following episodes of dizziness, fainting, nausea or even shock." The Encyclopedia of Aromatherapy.

Peppermint oil it not advised for "individuals with epilepsy or insomnia and should not be used topically on children under 3 years of age. Peppermint oil should be applied sparingly on those with sensitive skin, in order to avoid minor skin irritation. Furthermore, since peppermint oil promotes menstruation and reduces lactation, its use is best avoided during the first trimester of pregnancy and while nursing."
Despite these warnings peppermint oil is a valuable essential oil with a myriad of uses. Applied topically, peppermint oil is also beneficial for treating sunburn.
There are two types of peppermint oil: one that is applied to the skin and the other is digestive. Please be careful when selecting your peppermint oil to use under your tongue to manage motion or air sickness.
