I am so happy to have partnered with Blisslets to give you my review of their brilliant nausea remedy bands, a great option for those of us who experience nausea from motion sickness, morning sickness or chronic illness.

Many of us have memories of fun vacations spent in the sun with friends and family, soaking up the sights, good food and relaxing by the pool. It sounds idyllic, but if like me you experience nausea from flying or being on a boat due to chronic illness conditions or other causes, then you can easily approach vacations with a little unease. Lying by the pool definitely isn’t as fun if you feel sick at the same time.
Back in the day when I was a teenager, my mum bought me some nausea remedy wrists bands from the pharmacy to wear for a family cruise as I had always had trouble with motion in the car and on boats. Bright blue and so tight they nearly cut my circulation off, they were very ‘medical’ looking. I remember being a bit self-conscious about them on wrists, and they definitely didn’t go with the vacations outfits I had spent hours shopping for! Those travel bands have been in my bathroom cabinet until recently, when I very happily replaced them with some Blisslets bracelets.
Blisslets are a really great way to find nausea relief in a stylish way. Living with a vestibular disorder can mean I experience a fair amount of nausea, and many people have chronic nausea or vertigo and so wear acupressure bands all the time. The old-fashioned travel bands can understandably make people feel a little self-conscious as it makes their condition very visible, as it did for me.
With Blisslets, there is a real sense of freedom from that aspect of chronic illness. With lots of different styles and colours to choose from, there will definitely be one to suit your outfit and make you feel self-confident in your look. Or maybe pick a few so you have your very own ‘Blisslets wardrobe’ for daytime and night-time looks too! As well as being stylish, they don’t look ‘medical’ at all. Instead, they look like a pretty bracelet specially picked to complement your look. I love the blue patterned fabric ones with a simple white t-shirt and jeans, and the brown leather one for matching my handbag and boots for a walk around the city.
How do Blisslets work?
Blisslets are acupressure bands that you wear on your wrists on the P6 (Nei-Kuan) point. The bands have a bead embedded in the elastic and this applies pressure to that point, which is located between the two tendons below the wrist. As Blisslets refer to on their website, this form of acupressure has been shown to have a soothing effect by multiple randomized studies. No wonder it has been used for thousands of years, and has been recommended by doctors too.
One of the best aspects of the Blisslets bands is that you don’t need to worry about them being too loose or too tight (like my old pharmacy ones!). With four different sizes, you can easily find the right fit for you. My wrists are tiny so the small size works best for me. There is an easy to follow size guide on the Blisslets website.
I always like to use natural forms of symptom relief where possible, and these bracelets are such a good option. They have quickly become part of my self-care treatment plan, and I love that they are a non-drug method of relief.
If you suffer with nausea I highly recommend trying out Blisslets, and looking super stylish when you do!

These are super cute! We have acupressure bands here in Taiwan for anti-nausea. They're very popular, but nowhere near as nice as these. How awesome that you can mix and match! Great idea.
They're great aren't they! I really like that they don't look 'medical' and you can pick a pretty design that goes with your outfit.

Many Asian women also use these anti nausea type bands but for pregnancy nausea. But these are so pretty! I'll definitely be referring to this article if i need to buy one for myself or as a gift!
They are cute aren't they! I like how you can match them up to what you are wearing, and nobody would know they are for a health condition of for pregnancy. My mum wore bands when she was pregnant with me!

I have tried the drugstore version, uck! I love these. I get so "seasick", so I'm hoping this will help. I'm checking for my size and to see if they ship to my area of the world:)
Haha! I don't like the drugstore ones either! If you're in the US they definitely ship there!

This is so smart stylish!! This reminds me of when a grain of pulse is placed on a pressure point and taped on to particular area of the wrist and fingers - that's how we do it - the ancient way. I get horrible motion sickness and I guess wearing a pretty band is nicer option - I need to see if they ship to India.
They're good aren't they! Don't look or feel 'medical' at all, and you would just think they are a bracelet. It's the same principle I think - the acupressure and particular spot on the wrist.
I suffer from nausea on a daily basis from my MS meds, I am going to give this a try, they look nice and hopefully they wont make me tired like the anti-nausea meds do!!
So hope they help! I really love how they don't look 'medical' and just look like pretty jewellery.
