  2. Can Aromatherapy help with digestion issues?

    Posted on

    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.

    Aromatherapy to help you relax.relaxation

    There are times when you need to relax and remain calm.  Even if you're not normally an anxious person, there is nobody that wouldn’t benefit from some calming essential oils. Maybe you need to relax and switch off when you get home from work, or perhaps when the kids are gone to bed, you want to calm your mind and relax.

    I have a range of oils that I use, recommend and work, but if you are with me for a consultation or treatment, you may choose something completely different, but it will be an oil that will resonate with you and you need.
