Regardless of how big your yacht is or how luxurious the owner’s cabin may be, the occasional bout of seasickness can strike down every would-be sailor. So, along with your marine-safe suncream and insect repellent, be sure to pack one of these great motion sickness treatments.
According to ancient Chinese medical traditions rubbing peppermint oil on the temples and roof of the mouth can help relieve the feelings of nausea caused by motion sickness. The fact that it smells great and doubles up as a brilliant essential oil for massages and foot baths is just another reason to give it a try.
