When using oils for digestive wellness, there are some simple guidelines to follow that help keep the digestive system at normal function. The body is meant to work perfectly and sometimes needs a little help to get back to normal again.
Digestive Support Oils We Use:
Here are some of the Young Living essential oils we use to help our digestive systems stay at optimal wellness. Oils are easy to use and often work very quickly.
DiGize – a blend of tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, fennel, lemongrass, anise and patchouli. These oils date back to Ancient Egypt and were often used before a meal and were flavored with honey. This oil can be easily applied around the navel. Dilute with 1 tablespoon carrier oil for small children. This is our family’s go-to oil when our tummies need some support. It doesn’t smell the best to me but some people have told me that this is their very favorite oil to smell. It’s interesting how each of our bodies are so different.
AromaEase – This is a newer blend from Young Living that smells much more pleasant than DiGize. It contains peppermint, spearmint, ginger, cardamom and fennel. This can also be applied around the navel, diluted or diffused in a micronizing diffuser. Sometimes even just smelling this oil can help ease discomfort and keep the digestive system functioning normally.
Peppermint Vitality – peppermint is known to be very supportive of the digestive system. A drop can be put in a glass and water poured over and consumed. A drop can also be put into a clear vegetable capsule or blended in a drink.
Lemon Vitality – This oil can be mixed in a cup with water, taken in a capsule, dropped into syrup, marinades, vinagrettes, yogurt or with berries. It can also be added to cooked noodles, rice, and pasta salad for a refreshing taste and digestive support.
Lavender Vitality – This essential oil is a bit stronger than lemon so just a dip with a toothpick of oil is recommended when adding to jams, sorbet, whipped cream and lemonade. More can always be added if the lavender taste is not enough for your taste.
