You can get natural relief from dizziness with the essential oils for vertigo featured in this post. These oils help reduce symptoms by promoting stress relief and reducing nausea.
Vertigo is when you feel like you are spinning or dizzy when you are barely moving or sitting still. You feel off balance, even though your body is standing, sitting, or lying still.
This feeling can make you feel like you are going to fall down, so it’s best to lie down or sit until it passes so you don’t get hurt.
Vertigo is usually a symptom of another condition. Some people will have vertigo a few times in their life, but others will experience it more often.
Vertigo can last for a few minutes or several hours. It can come and go throughout the day.
It can also lead to vomiting or nausea, headaches, sweating, or abnormal eye movements. Some people may even experience ringing in their ears, double vision, problems with hearing, poor coordination, or weakness in their limbs.
Vertigo is usually caused by a problem in the inner ear, but it can also be due to a neurological problem or sensory problem.
ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN FIRST IF YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE NEW AS IT CAN INDICATE A LIFE THREATENING PROBLEM!

It’s important that you never use essential oils undiluted. Some oils can be applied neat, but you have to be careful with them and only use them neat under advice from an aromatherapist.
Applying essential oils directly to your skin can cause inflammation, redness, irritation, and pain. However, you can safely apply oils to your skin by diluting them with a carrier oil.
There are several carrier oils that you can use to dilute your essential oils. Some of the more common ones are:
Use essential oils in a 1 to 2% dilution with a carrier oil. You can add three to six drops of essential oils per two teaspoons of a carrier oil.
After you dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil, massage it on the back of your neck, temples, or forehead for relief.
You can also create a roller bottle by using between 3 and 6 drops of essential oils in a 10 ml roller bottle.
You can also use one or more of these essential oils in aromatherapy for vertigo relief by diffusion.

To make a personal inhaler, add 15 drops of essential oils to a personal inhaler and use it when you feel the symptoms of vertigo.
