Trick to Beat Car Sickness

It seems like some of the best secrets come when you've just talking to your friends and neighbours about ordinary stuff. This week a bunch of ladies from the neighbourhood were at the local park when my friend mentioned a trick her sister uses to combat car sickness because her kids are highly susceptible to it. She found that if you put a few drops of peppermint oil on a cotton-ball, and put a few of such treated cotton-balls in the air-conditioning vents of your car, it drastically reduces the nausea. It makes sense. Smelling or tasting peppermint is often an effective remedy for upset stomachs. I know what I'm packing for our road-trip this summer.
