This system includes the mouth, teeth, tongue, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas, gallbladder, liver, large intestine, rectum and anus. Common disorders include GERD (acid reflux), indigestion, gut motility disorders, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and peptic or duodenal ulcers.

All these essential oils, should always, be diluted in a carrier oil.
What essential oils are good for Bloating and Gas?
  • Peppermint: Recommended for abdominal pain and spasms.
  • Ginger: Recommended for gas relief, nausea, constipation.
  • Fennel: Recommended for constipation.
  • Lemon: Recommended for heartburn.
  • Oregano: Recommended for its antibacterial properties.

Peppermint helps you to digest in the small intestine, minimizing heart burn and indigestion. For teas, steeping 1 teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves in 1 cup of boiling water for 10 minutes is often sufficient to aid in digestion.

Peppermint oil is the most effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome, according to news reports today. The non-prescription supplement has been shown to be better at easing symptoms than prescribed muscle relaxants or fibre.
