Ginger Tea Recipe To Relieve Nausea Naturally
If you’re suffering from nausea or morning sickness, try this ginger tea recipe and sip on it throughout the day to help alleviate nausea.
Why Drink Ginger Tea?
As a Registered Nurse who worked in Labor & Delivery and a mom to four beautiful babies, I know a thing or two about pregnancy. One thing I really struggled with when I was pregnant was getting the right nutrition for me and baby. The first trimester always consisted of a diet of dry cereal and water. I couldn’t eat anything else without feeling nauseous so cereal dinners were on the menu for a good 3 months.
Despite how my body felt, I knew I needed to be sure I was getting the right nutrients. I have a couple of tricks that worked for me that I hope will help you get the right nutrition during pregnancy and help fight off that nausea. My ginger tea recipe was great for sipping on and helped alleviate nausea when it hit so I could get some nutritious foods in me without feeling like they were going to come right back up.

Every time I have a back surgery I have to add a calcium supplement and I always choose Viactiv. Great tasting and easy to digest!
It makes total sense that ginger tea would quiet an upset stomach. Ginger ale always makes me feel better when I’m sick.
Those Viactiv chews are like tootsie rolls! So fun to actually enjoy getting your calcium!
They are like tootsie rolls.
My huband and I are currently trying for our first baby so it’s nice to come across articles that talk about the do’s and don’ts for pregnancy. This tea looks great so I’ll definitely have to Pin for later!
Good luck to you and your husband!
That tea sounds really good. I wish I would have had this when I was pregnant with my girls. I had bad nausea with the both of them.
It would have been a lifesaver then. But it still beneficial now.
this recipe reminds me so much of my granny. everyone loved her tea and i love how you get your nutrition from this recipe how awesome
Ginger ale is always my go-to for tummy troubles. I’m marking this tea to try next time!
Viactiv Calcium Soft Chews is a delicious way to get your calcium. I will have to try this tea recipe the next time i am not feeling well.
I will have to share this with my friend. She just found out she is expecting. This will be perfect for her.
I’m a big tea drinker. So will definitely have to try this
This looks like it would be a soothing tea. I have a sort throat right now and this is sounding amazing. Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!
I could have used this tea to help with upset stomachs during pregnancies! Sounds so soothing. Thanks for linking up with us at Welcome Home Wednesdays, hope to see you again this week!
My wife drank lots of ginger tea with lemon when she was pregnant – it really helped!
I take ginger tea while I’m sick but I take it with milk. Thank you for sharing with us at #HomeMattersParty. We would love to have you again this week.
I’ve been nauseous a lot lately due to vertigo. I’m not pregnant, but I hear ginger is so great for this. I’m going to have to try this recipe, but I can only take ginger in certain forms because of the bite.
Ginger is supposed to be great for nausea for any reason. The tea helps it be more palatable. I hope you get some relief soon.
We use ginger for nausea and nutmeg for upset stomachs. It’s amazing how well they work!
I’m new with making tea at home, but love the idea! Plus, the ingredients to this tea seem so delicious. When you say add tea bags and allow them to steep were you implying any type of tea bags? Camomile? Mint? Rooibos? I wasn’t sure. Thanks for your help!
Anything you want. A more mellow tea will help give it better flavor with the ginger. I’d stay away from mint but that is just my personal preference.
What kind of teabags? Are black tea teabags ok?
I use green tea 🙂 I’ll update that in the recipe!
I’m experiencing bad pregnancy related nausea and made this. Ginger ale and ginger beer help, but with my sensitive palate right now the sweetness of those manufactured drinks was making me queasy too! This homemade version is so much nicer bc I could tweak it to my liking – I made it much less sweet (used about half the sugar and honey it asked for and only 1 teabag instead of 3 just to be extra careful with caffeine, for baby). 🙂 It’s really nice, soothing, way better than anything I can buy, so I’ll be making it again!
Oh I’m so sorry to hear you are experiencing nausea! I also had terrible nausea my entire first trimester with all my babies. I am so glad to hear this worked well for you and thank you for sharing your recipe tweaks so others may benefit from your experience. I hope your nausea subsides soon and you can move forward without any more issues. Congrats on the sweet little one!
