I have read of this natural product which is applied behind the ear, and used instead of the patch. I have found it online, but would prefer to get it myself at a local store. Has anyone used it? If so, is it available at any chain drug stores or superstores? Thanks!

SD, I have heard about this product. I have not tried it yet. The only thing I know about it is that it is an herbal oil that is applied behind the ears. Motion sickness begins in the inner ear so I guess this oil stuff absorbs through the skin and reduces symptoms. I have not heard anything negative about it.

Unfortunately, unless you can work personal lubricants into a cruise topic, those topics are now no-can-do's.

Not that I was prepared to talk personal lubricants mind you.

That's not something I can use on my keyboard so I can type faster?

SD, a natural remedy is ginger. They have ginger candies in health food stores. People swear by it. Thankfully, I don't get seasick. Another thing I have found to settle a queasy stomach is Angostura bitters with Sprite or 7-Up. All the bars on board should have the bitters, just a few splashes in a Sprite works wonders. I take Nexium and when my stomach is really acting up, the bitters work wonders.

That would be "astroglide" you are looking for, or maybe just Goldbond powder.

I never get sea sick, don't need anything except another trip to the buffet, (then a two mile run).

Oddly enough, I am getting sick at home just thinking about a two mile run.
