You are not alone in experiencing nausea as a side-effect of chemotherapy, nearly 75% of patients feel your pain1,2
I listen to people living with and beyond cancer when they tell me about the challenges they face. I am not a medic or a health care professional. I make no promises. I make skincare and beauty products for those going through treatment for cancer. I decided a long time ago that if I am was to make specialist skincare I would make it luxurious, indulgent, gorgeous and useful.
We help with dry skin, sore skin, flaking skin, sensitive skin and itchy skin but I wanted to do more. As an aromatherapist and nutritional therapist, I know that some foods and some essential oils can be effective in combatting nausea – I created the Well-Being Beauty Vitality Collection using my aromatherapy skills and added a few treats using my nutritional background.
The Well-Being Beauty Vitality Collection is formulated using a blend of Black Pepper, Cardamom, Lime, Spearmint, Lavender, Peppermint, Benzoin, Ginger, oils known for their ability to calm the digestive system.
Studies have found ginger to be effective in calming nausea, during chemo, after chemotherapy and post-operatively3,4,5 These studies used ginger taking orally, using a well-defined type and dosage (these are clinical trials). I am not suggesting that a topically applied body oil or a bath oil has the same proven effect. I just hope to demonstrate that I have formulated an essential oil blend, used in the Well-Being Beauty Vitality Collections, with the intention of reducing nausea and have used research to inform the essential oil choice.
I love my food and wanted you to too – so I included a few ginger and peppermint treats. is a known ‘fact’ that treats which serve a therapeutic purpose contain zero concerns and can be enjoyed at all times.
The Well-Being Beauty Vitality Collection contains:
Each product is available individually or in a set.
All are fragranced using the same essential oil blend.
