DigestZen essential oil blend has been the ONLY oil to work for our digestive issues 100% of the time. It is a mixture of seven potent oils specifically for digestive system issues and ailments.

My husband has long had digestive problems, with a hiatal hernia in his stomach that caused severe reflux, low stomach acid and an inability to digest food (even having fully undigested food in his stomach 12 hours after eating, as found by a doctor). Likewise, I have severe digestive issues, such as a gluten intolerance, grain intolerance, dairy sensitivity, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Very little has helped my husband's stomach pains, which are increased by mental or emotional stress. And nothing helped me but a strict (often boring) diet. But the DigestZen essential oil blend has helped immensely! After just a couple months he stopped experiencing pain, has noticed his digestion has increased and he's even lost weight. Over time, I also was able to eat dairy again without issues, handle grains in moderation, and my reactions to gluten are less severe.

Many medical professionals understand the importance of a healthy digestive system. Our stomachs can affect so many things, being the core of our system: hormones, mood and mental stability, complexion, underweight or overweight, excessively oily or dry skin (including things like eczema), growth rates, bone density and more. If we are what we eat, it's just as important that we are able to digest those foods fully, and support our system if we become ill in any manner.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON QUALITY

The information provided here on the properties and uses of this oil do NOT apply to all essential oil brands.

Because of lenient industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as "natural" or "pure", much of what you find at the drug store is not a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may actually make you sick. In fact, only about 50% of it needs to be actual essential oils to be called "pure"!

A LOT goes into creating a therapeutic grade essential oil. The best essential oil brands follow these guidelines:

  • Proper plant varieties
  • Grown in their indigenous region around the world
  • Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
  • Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
  • Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
  • Third-party testing of each and every batch
  • Stand behind the internal use of their oils

How to use essential oils!


aromatic applicationAromatically - Can be diffused or inhaled directly.
topical applicationTopically - Can be applied directly to the skin or within a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, for young or sensitive skin. Start with 1 drop to 1-3 tsp of carrier and increase the EO as needed.
internal applicationInternally - NOT RECOMMENDED FOR MOST BRANDS. High quality brands may be "generally recognized as safe" by the FDA (21CFR182.20) to be used in cooking, adding a drop to purified water or taken as a dietary supplement, diluting 1 drop in 1 tsp. honey or 4 oz of non-acidic, non-dairy beverage (not for children under 6 years old and in greater dilution for older children).
topical applicationNEAT - Can usually apply the oil without dilution, directly to the skin. However, it's always a good idea to test your own skin first, as sensitive skin types may react.

Precautions: Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Use caution while pregnant (a single drop rubbed on the outer ear for morning sickness will suffice) and for children. Not for use for people with epilepsy.
