This might sound weird, but it comes from the Annals of Emergency Medicine… They say, if you’re nauseous, smell some hand sanitizer. In studies, when people who were queasy smelled cotton pads soaked in isopropyl alcohol, they felt HALF as sick 10 minutes later. And isopropyl alcohol is a main ingredient in most hand sanitizing gels. It’s not the germ killing properties that do the trick – it’s simply the strong smell! Because peppermint oil and ginger oil worked just as well. But you’re more likely to have a tube of hand sanitizer nearby.
