Feelings of nausea can arise from a variety of different causes including motion or travel sickness, a viral infection, digestive problems, pregnancy or emotional anxiety or tension. Lavender is indicated specifically for sickness due to ‘nerves’ or an emotional upset, especially if the upset is accompanied by digestive symptoms.
