    If you suffer from digestive upset, indigestion, IBS, stomach upset, painful gas, essential oils may provide some relief.
    Indigestion can be helped by a gentle massage over the stomach with a soothing blend of oils. You can also use the oils in a hot compress on the stomach. Blend the oils in a carrier and put a towel or cloth in warm water, then put the oils on the warm towel and apply to the stomach. Renew the oils and warm the towel/cloth as often as needed.

    If you are suffering from IBS, a blend of Orange oil and Patchouli oil in a carrier and massaged onto the stomach is great to help regulate IBS.

    Massage the stomach lightly in the direction of the colon.
