DigestZen

I thought I would share with you some of my favorite oils one by one.

I decided to start with the oil that really got us interested in DoTERRA.  The first oil we tried.  When our daughter Cali was having major digestive, stomach issues I was given a sample of Digestzen and she began using it.  We found that this $31.00 bottle oil took care of the same issues that the $300.00 worth of homeopathic remedies we were using.  This was all after having gone through extensive and expensive medical tests to see what was causing her problems.  The doctor's could come up with no other explanation other than IBS (irritable bowel; syndrome) and just wanted to put her on prescription medications.

We decided to try another more natural approach and visited a naturopath who really helped her by identifying various food sensitivities.  He also gave her some very expensive homeopathic remedies which worked but were expensive.  When a friend shared a sample of Digestzen with me and Cali tried that it worked as well as the expensive remedies. 

Digestzen
Digetzen is a blend that consists of anise, caraway, coriander, fennel, ginger, peppermint and tarragon.

Digestzen is great for things such as constipation, diarrhea (yes it works for both), heartburn, indigestion, Crohns Disease, Celiac Disease, IBS, food poisoning, motion sickness, nausea,  and stomach aches.

So many of our heal issues begin in our digestive track and Digestzen can help many of them.


How to Use
 Take 1-2 drops in 1/4 cup of warm water or juice for stomach issues or heartburn.
May also be applied directly to stomach area.
For infants and small children, apply topically to the stomach area with a carrier oil 
to protect their sensitive skin.  Works well for colic
Combine 1 teaspoon of fractionated coconut oil with a drop each of a Digestzen blend and lavender and apply the dilution for diaper rash.
Add 2-3 drops of digestive blend and 1 drop of lemon in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and take internally every hour up to 8 hours while relief comes from gallbladder attacks.
