Does The Aromatherapy Relieves Nausea?

Ginger and peppermint essential oils are commonly sold as stomach soothers. Some studies suggest that they, along with cardamom or fennel, may reduce nausea. But the most compelling research is on isopropyl alcohol, according to a review of nine studies. And a study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine found that nauseated hospital patients who sniffed alcohol swabs reported significantly less nausea than those who sniffed salt­water.

Isopropyl alcohol swabs are in most first aid kits and are inexpensive, so people can easily use them to alleviate nausea, says study author Antonia Helbling, M.D., an emergency medicine physician at San Antonio Military Medical Center.

So what do our experts think about scent as medicine?

“Using the smell of alcohol to help with nausea may seem promising, but there simply isn’t enough solid evidence to back up most of the health claims for essential oils,” says Consumer Reports’ chief medical adviser, Marvin M. Lipman, M.D. “And do not trust any aromatherapy product that claims to treat a specific illness.”
