Relieve Your Motion Sickness
Motion sickness, ugh! Suffering from car sickness, or motion sickness in general, is awful. Whether you get motion sick in the car, on a rollercoaster, or swing, that nauseous feeling is the worst. Some symptoms of motion sickness include nausea, dizziness, an increase in saliva production, loss of appetite, and pale skin. We have a natural and soothing solution for when the feelings of nausea take over: essential oils.
Let’s understand how motion sickness works, who’s most likely to experience it, and how Scentral Zone’s Anti-Nausea diffuser may help relieve motion sickness.
Your Brain with Motion Sickness
Motion sickness happens when your senses clash. Imagine being on a ride at a theme park. Your head is upside down, your eyes see the turns, your muscles are strained as you hold on tight, and your inner ears sense something else. Your brain is the motor of your emotions and feelings. Your brain usually uses all of this incoming data all at once. But when you’re in motion, your body can send confusing signals to your brain. This is when you feel motion sick.
Children and Pregnant Women
Unfortunately, motion sickness is more common in children and pregnant women. Kids frequently experience motion sickness because they are required to sit in the backseat. That makes it more difficult for them to see out the window straight in front of them, which can confuse their senses. Pregnant women experience motion sickness because their hormones slow down their digestive system muscles. Several kids and adults alike experience motion sickness due to turbulence on an airplane or sea sickness on a boat or ship.
