Tummy oils...

I recently had a medical procedure done during which I was given some nasty meds to relax me (unfortunately they were ineffective but I still got to experience the side effects!). Following the procedure, I was quite nauseous and miserable. I recently ordered a new oil called AromaEase that is known as Digize on steroids! Though I would not recommend putting drops directly in your mouth (use a capsule!!! It was the worst oil I have ever tasted!), it was AMAZING!! I was astounded at how effective this oil was as controlling my nausea.

Since I experienced the awesomeness of AromaEase this past week, it prompted me to write this post about the tummy oils that I love so much. Unfortunately I struggle with nausea a lot and have gotten very attached to the oils that help with such problems. Here are my favorites:

Peppermint is my number one oil I turn to when I am feeling dizzy, nauseous or light-headed (no, it's not normal that I have these issues!! Working to figure out what the deal is but in the mean time, it's my current reality:-) ). I don't do well when I have blood tests so I always have my bottle of Peppermint with me to inhale during such procedures and it works wonders for me. I like to put a couple drops of Peppermint in my mouth to control nausea but it is a spicy oil so if you are sensitive, putting the drops in a teaspoonful of water helps to tone it down.

On occasion, I need something a little stronger than Peppermint to control my ickies at which time I turn to Digize. It is a great oil for indigestion or the feeling of just being "off" in regard to your digestive system. Quite honestly, I started out hating the smell and taste of this oil blend but I have gotten to the point that I just put a couple drops in my mouth to help me feel better. It truly is an amazing oil and clears up my tummy troubles almost immediately. Digize is a blend of  Tarragon, ginger, peppermint, juniper, fennel , lemongrass, anise, and patchouli and though the flavor is far from desireable, it is worth the flavor every time!

As I mentioned earlier, AromaEase is a new oil and it is even more powerful than Peppermint and Digize in my oppinion! It is the ultimate help if you are feeling terribly nauseous. This blend is similar to Digize but a bit different. It combines Peppermint, Spearmint, Ginger, Cardamom, and Fennel. I would recommend using it in a capsule or rubbing directly on the stomach area - don't ingest it directly into your mouth because it tastes awful!!! 

So this post is a little odd seeing as how most people probably don't have daily bouts with nausea, dizziness or being light-headed...however, this information will hopefully help if you find yourself struggling on occasion with one of these issues!
