Lemon is a very fresh fruit that can instantly lift your mood just through its smell. When feeling nauseous, just slice a lemon, squeeze it into a cup of hot water and drink as is, or with a teaspoon of honey. It will definitely improve your nausea and uneasiness.

2. Ginger 

Ginger has been shown to reduce the production of stomach acids that may increase nausea. It is a well documented natural remedy for nausea, along with its fantastic property of improving digestion.

4. Peppermint

Like lemon, peppermint is one of those fresh scents that have the remarkable ability to tame an upset stomach. It has several forms that lend themselves to natural remedies, such as tea or oil. For quick relief, try rubbing some peppermint oil directly on your gums.

5. Frozen Fruit

Keep a few slices of lime or lemon in a plastic baggy in the freezer, and use for the times you find yourself getting nauseas. Like the smell of lemon can help you feel better, so can the sharp, fresh flavor of a straight wedge of lemon or lime. It also helps take your mind off of it, and while it may create a rush of saliva, it might transform it into a better experience. You can also consume other acetic frozen fruits such as berries. Not only will they give you a flavor boost, but will also curb your nausea.

6. Milk Toast

Bland foods can help tame your tummy, a particular favorite is milk and bread. Bread absorbs excess acid, while milk coats your stomach, which is also why they are generally recommended when you something like aspirin, which can hurt an empty stomach. However, you do not want to drink milk straight, as dairy alone can cause upset, so make milk toast for a happy medium.
