Essential Oils for Digestive Ailments- Part 2 of 5

Learn which essential oils used during a bodywork session can help alleviate many of the most common digestive complaints.
The center of our body's food processing, nutrient absorption, hormone manufacture and waste elimination, the digestive system can produce many discomforts that may be eased by aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy uses highly concentrated essential oils extracted from plants to stimulate the healing process and to treat symptoms of illness. Applied topically on its own or in a blend, essential oils can ease cramps, gas, bloating, heartburn, indigestion, stomach pain and elimination difficulties. Because they are very potent, only a drop or two is needed to achieve results.

Another beneficial essential oil  for treating digestive problems is:
· Anise or Fennel - Anise or fennel essential oils are known as digestive tonics with anti-spasmodic and antiseptic properties. These can be helpful for easing gas pain, cramps, bloating and nausea. In addition, many practitioners use anise or fennel to help balance hormones. One aromatic property of fennel oil is that it stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. Anise oil has been used to treat dry irritable coughs, bronchitis and whooping cough in addition to digestive ailments.
