Aromatherapy for Hiccups

hiccups

I usually drink a glass of water before I go to bed and last night when I drank it, I suddenly got the hiccups. I’ve had hiccups before but usually when I get them, I just do it a few times and then it stops. They would not stop last night and I couldn’t go to sleep. I got back up and tried to think about which essential oils could help me get rid of those annoying hiccups.

I had a choice of chamomile, lavender, lemon or fennel but I found my chamomile first. I’ve told people to do this for hiccups before but I never had an occasion to try it on myself. I put 1 drop of chamomile essential oil in a brown paper bag and held it over my nose and mouth.  I breathed in deeply and slowly through my nose about 10 times. I’m sure you can do it longer if necessary but that was plenty for me. When I took the bag off my nose and mouth, the hiccups were gone. The next time you or someone you know have the hiccups, try this aromatherapy treatment.
