This month I received doTERRA's DigestZen for review from My Natural Family's blogger review program.
DigestZen is an essential oil blend used to help alleviate all sorts of digestive ailments. It is a combination of ginger, peppermint, tarragon, fennel, caraway, coriander and anise which all help to increase the effectiveness of this powerful blend.
Here are just a few of the uses for DigestZen™…
Add one drop of oil to rice or almond milk and drink
*Bloating and cramps:
Flavor water with 5 drops and drink
*Diarrhea and other digestive issues:
Apply topically on the abdomen or take internally by placing 1-2 drops in an empty capsule and swallowing.
Diffusing into the air with our Lotus Diffuser can help clear up mucus.
Add 6 drops to 8oz of water. Swish around in the mouth, and swallow. Place 1-2 drops in an empty capsule, and swallow.
*Helps with Abdominal Cramps, Bloating, Constipation, Diarrhea, Digestive Problems, Food Allergies, Food Poisoning, Heartburn, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Nausea, Salmonella, and Stomachaches.
I've personally used the DigestZen for instances of over-eating or generally upset tummies at home. My youngest (who is three) frequently has belly-aches. Obviously there is something that's not agreeing with her but I haven't been able to figure it out yet. I apply the DigestZen to the soles of her feet (diluted with some coconut oil) and she feels so much better.
I tried once telling her it was perfume and put it on her belly but the smell is pretty potent for her and she didn't like after a few minutes. That's why I love the fact that these oils do great on the soles of the feet. I feel like I'm building an all natural medicine cabinet!
For myself, the few times that I've had stomach upset I dilute a few drops in a cup of water and drink it. It tastes a little like black licorice, not unpleasant and its like taking a miracle tonic. This stuff works for heartburn, overeating, diarrhea, and Irritable Bowel which I have personally had issues with.
My doctor had prescribed me a medication for it which completely dries me out, makes my mouth taste like I'm chewing on cotton and I hate it. DigestZen has completely replaced it. I highly recommend those looking for natural solutions to common stomach ailments give this stuff a try. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed.
