doTERRA Oil of the Month – DigestZen

Aug 12, 2018 | Essential Oils


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.

Suggested Uses:

Internal Use:

DigestZen can be taken internally by adding one drop to a full glass of water.

Topical use:

Apply 1 or 2 drops to the tummy area by applying gently in a clockwise direction.

Tips:

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.

If you are looking for more natural solutions and would like to order DigestZen or the Fractionated Coconut Oil we are happy to do that for you at the front desk counter at The Living Well Studio.

COVID-19

As per the government health guidelines on the 22nd of March 2020 non essential services will be closed. This does not include us. While we are still open for our usual services we will be practicing strict and heightened hygiene measures during this time to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

From the PM’s address today, we want to be clear we are not a gym. We are a health care practice, that provides services to optimise health and reduce pain from musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Our studio team are ensuring complete high grade sanitisation of props and equipment that will only be single person use for each session, and ensuring social distancing. The staff and studio have had no connection to the COVID-19 at this time.

As per the government health guidelines we will not allow access to our services if you answer “yes” to any of the below:

Have you been overseas in the last 14 days?
Have you been in contact with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
Do you have a dry cough, shortness of breath, fever or sore throat?
If answered yes to any of the above, please call the COVID-19 hotline on 1800 020 080.

We ask patients who are at risk to please let us know before your appointment so we can discuss your position. This includes immune-suppressed, the elderly and those who have been in high-risk areas. We also ask that you call the clinic if you do develop COVID-19 or have come in contact with someone who has so we can act according to the government recommendations.

For all treatments, our linen is being changed for every client and a wipe down of all equipment used. We ask that you remain in your car until your treatment time to minimise patient to patient contact in the waiting area. We also ask that you use ‘tap and go’ for your payment method rather than cash. Also we will not require you to sign your health fund slip to minimise cross use of pens between staff and patients. All our door handles and surfaces are regularly being cleaned during the day.

We ask everyone who comes in for group therapy sessions.

Bring a large towel and socks.
Keep 1.5m distance between yourself and others.
Wash your hands before and after the class.
If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your face and wash or sanitise hands immediately.
If you wish to wear gloves we have them available for you.
Online and Telehealth will be an option in the very near future….watch this space.

We are understanding of each and everyone’s individual position and we deeply care for your health and encourage everyone to take steps to keep strong and healthy at this time. Please feel free to call or email our staff to voice your concern and receive guidance. We are dedicated to informing you of our position and future movements in relation to Covid-19.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
