Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has many benefits for patients experiencing nausea in the perioperative setting. It has a strong component of anxiolysis, which is very helpful in reducing the stress of nausea and vomiting after surgical procedures. Lavender is absorbed quite rapidly when inhaled, achieving relaxation and reduction of anxiety via a serotonergic neurotransmission pathway.
