Etymonline
Word Origin & History

nauseate
1640, "to feel sick, to become affected with nausea," from pp. stem of L. nauseare, see nausea. In its early life it also had transitive senses of "to reject (food, etc.) with a feeling of nausea" (1646) and "to create a loathing in" (1654). Careful writers use nauseated
for "sick at the stomach" and reserve nauseous (q.v.) for "sickening to contemplate."
