Essential Oil Treatments for Vertigo

Vertigo is a sensation of temporary loss of balance, typically brought on by looking down from a height, or by conditions affecting the vestibular nerve and/or inner ear, also frequently accompanied by feelings of nausea, spinning and giddiness. Inhaling peppermint oil can help with vertigo, particularly when it is accompanied by nausea, and has been used for centuries.

Ginger is also extremely effective at overcoming vertigo, as it improves blood flow to the brain, thus helping to reduce dizziness; placing a couple of drops behind the ears will have a noticeable effect. Most citrus oils will also help overcome dizziness and vertigo.
