It can also be blended in a cream or lotion to take advantage of its antifungal properties and assist in the treatment of Athlete's Foot and other minor fungal infections. Its antiseptic properties also make it suitable for application to minor infections, acne and other skin problems. 

It's also said to be very effective in preventing travel sickness. Just add a couple of drops to a tissue and inhale regularly, making sure that the essential oil does not come into direct contact with the skin.
