Lemongrass has been used in India as a remedy for many infectious diseases, however, modern research has provided evidence for its action on the central nervous system. It was concluded that lemongrass is a central nervous system depressant, significantly reducing anxiety and time taken to fall asleep. Thus, lemongrass could reduce tension and aid a restful sleep on journeys and may aid in getting to sleep at the right time for the destination, which could help reduce jet lag.
Mandarin has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine systems as an anti-emetic to relieve nausea and vomiting (Ahmed et al., 2013). Citrus species are traditionally used in several countries to combat anxiety and insomnia.
Peppermint in herbal medicine goes back as far as the ancient Greek, Romans and Egyptian eras, where it was often used in herbal teas for digestive complaints, including nausea and vomiting. This use has continued to the present day around the world (Mckay and Blumberg, 2006), indicating that peppermint may be useful in the relief of nausea and vomiting associated with travel sickness.
