doTERRA Oil of the Month – DigestZen
Our resident doTERRA specialist Julie Barfoot suggests…
doTERRA’s DigestZen is as it sounds ‘Calming for the belly’.
It is known as the “tummy tamer” oil blend due to its ability to aid in digestion, soothe stomach upset, and help maintain overall digestive health. Aromatically it is spicy, sweet, minty and a little like licorice. I am a fan and I don’t travel without it especially when I indulge in foods that I do not normally eat at home.
This unique blend contains Ginger, Fennel and Coriander to help ease stomach discomfort including motion sickness and indigestion while Peppermint, Tarragon, Anise and Caraway aid with maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
DigestZen also has a powerful emotional quality too – supporting individuals in assimilating and digesting life events and experiences whether they are perceived as positive or negative experiences. When we are stressed, overwhelmed or overstimulated with excitement we can sometimes experience an emotional form of indigestion and even loss of appetite for food and nourishment.
DigestZen with its Zen-like quality helps to bring calm & relaxation to the tummy area and restore balance.
DigestZen can be taken internally by adding one drop to a full glass of water.
Apply 1 or 2 drops to the tummy area by applying gently in a clockwise direction.
Dilute for children with doTERRA’s fractionated coconut oil. Fractionated Coconut Oil is an all-natural carrier oil that is completely soluble with all essential oils and is colorless, odorless, and will not stain clothes or bed sheets or go rancid.
Rub directly on the stomach before flying or taking a road trip to reduce motion sickness. (Use in combination with Easy Air Blend on the chest to yield a much better outcome. It works! We sailed home on a cruise ship recently in a six metre swell and it worked like a treat!)
Take DigestZen at the first sign of indigestion, heartburn, nausea or even at the onset of diarrhea. If symptoms persist however do check in with your family physician.
