Remedy fit for a princess

THE Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly snacking on lavender shortbread biscuits in a bid to beat morning sickness.

Lavender has long been used as an anti-nausea remedy, although pregnant women usually administer it in the form of a few drops of oil in the bath.  However, Kate is said to have had the recommendation from the Duchess of Cornwall, who is known to be a fan of the biscuits.

If you can’t get your hands on the biscuits, then there are other traditional methods used to help ease morning sickness. Try drinking herbal tea (especially ginger) and teas made with lemon balm, and peppermint which are also known to reduce nausea.  It is recommended that you drink flat, room-temperature ginger ale to settle your stomach and smelling a slice of lemon has been reported to help.

Crackers are the plainest food for those feeling sick and fennel seed is a nausea remedy from Chinese folk medicine.
