2. Hot water — 4 cups
3. Honey and lemon

2. Cook grated ginger in boiling water for 10-15 min.
3. Remove ginger, add honey and/or lemon, as you like.Bon apetite!!!
***Like all herbal products, ginger does not work for everyone, but it is a possible non-medicinal method of at least easing travel sickness.
|Usually, these are woven cotton bands which you place on your wrist and wear for the entirety of your traveling. While they are most commonly associated with sea sickness, users have reported they work on other forms of motion sickness (in the car, for example) also.|

The most powerful, though unnatural, solution is tablets of medicine. You can find them in most pharmacies. You can even find them in some of convenience stores on high ways. Take tablets one hour before traveling for maximum effect.
