The compounds in this oil are so helpful because they reduce the gastrointestinal muscle contractions associated with vomiting. Dilute as needed, massage 1-3 drops on the mastoids behind the ear and over the navel every hour. You can also place a warm compress over the stomach after the oils are applied. Directly inhale the oils 4-6 times per hour or as needed. Place 1-4 drops on your tongue.
