Queasy Asks Abby:
I struggle with random nausea from time to time. Is there anything I can keep with me to help?
One of the BEST oils I would recommend for digestive discomfort is DiGize!
DiGize is excellent at supporting or digestive/elimination system.
It is one of Young Living’s amazing blends and is made using these single oils:
Taragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Anise, Patchouli, & Lemongrass.
Wow! Tons of amazing oils that make up DiGize and they support not just our digestion, but also our nervous system and hormones, as well as our emotions (queasiness can be brought on by various things).
- You can apply this topically to your stomach area by diluting it with one part EO to 4 parts carrier oil.
- You can massage that into your stomach and leave it or apply a warm compress over it.
- You can apply it to the VitaFlex points on your feet for stomach and intestinal relief!
- Or you can take this internally and take one capsule before each meal or as desired (diluting it as mentioned above for topical use, 1:4).
I personally have never diffused it. But, that is a great way to use also!
I have personal experience with this helping to ward off sudden nausea. I just did 1 drop of DiGize and 4 drops of Grapeseed oil. I rubbed it right on my stomach. Because the scent of DiGize is strong and not my favorite, I applied Peppermint on top of that. Peppermint is also known to help drive the oils in faster AND is supports our digestive system too. Win win.
I LOVE that the New Premium Starter Kit offers this oil. It was always what I recommended after folks purchased their kit and wondered what other staple they needed on hand.
Another option to use is Peppermint essential oil.
Some quick facts about Peppermint:
Peppermint is native to Europe and is a naturally occurring hybrid of the watermint and spearmint plants.
It takes approximately 1 pound of peppermint plant to make 1 bottle of peppermint essential oil.
To use for the occassional stomach discomfort:
- Massage several drops of peppermint essential oil on the abdomen, place a drop on wrists, or inhale to soothe the minor stomach discomfort associated with travel.
- Inhale peppermint essential oil or rub a drop on to your abdomen to soothe minor stomach discomfort.
I hope this helps you!
