Nothing can derail a day quite like unexpected gastrointestinal distress. But don’t let an upset stomach keep you off your feet for long. Essential oils can help to ease symptoms, recover your equilibrium more quickly and even stop the trouble before it starts. Try these tricks to ease feelings of an upset stomach with natural essential oils.
Stop the trouble before it starts. Whether you overindulged on Taco Tuesday or forgot that your lactose intolerance actually still includes chocolate chunk ice cream, some gut problems are a result of poor food choices. Essential oils can help tame an unruly appetite before it gets you into deep water, gastrointestinally speaking. Diffusing certified organic grapefruit essential oil or a combination of certified organic peppermint and your favorite bright citrus oil can help to curb an unhealthy or unreasonable appetite and let your brain make smarter food decisions in the first place.
Support your gut from the outside. Often, stomach problems are really muscle problems. Discomfort in the gut is often caused by cramping of the muscles in your abdomen and around your intestines. Ease muscle discomfort from the outside by massaging a dilution of N8 Essential’s certified organic Digest Blend across your abdomen and lower back for feelings of calm comfort and relief. Dilute the full-strength blend with a neutral carrier oil and massage it gently with your fingers into problem areas to ease feelings of cramping and discomfort.
Look at your feet. Lastly, some people also find gut relief by massaging essential oils into their feet, using a reflexology chart to target specific areas of the body.
The next time you feel an upset stomach coming on, think of these 3 easy solutions that will help get you on track again in a natural way.
When the weather turns cool and the sun drops below the horizon earlier every evening, who doesn’t love the warm ambiance of a flickering candle and the sweet natural scent of essential oils? Combining essential oils with soy candles gives them a clean, warm, nurturing scent. Soy wax is simple to work with, easy to melt, and a cinch to clean up … all of which makes these candles a good candidate for a simple DIY project at home. Essential oil scented soy candles also make great personalized gifts for family and friends. To begin, you’ll need a few supplies:
How to make your candle:
Experiment with the types and amount of essential oils you add to find the scent you prefer. Great combinations include certified organic bergamot and clove, or certified organic lavender and vetiver. Or, just add on of N8 Essential’s pre-mixed blends for a balanced and supportive aromatherapy experience. But don’t go too crazy … soy wax candles won’t solidify properly if you add too much essential oil. If you struggle with the texture of the wax, you can purchase an optional product called palm stearic, which will help your candle achieve the correct texture, even with extra essential oil.
With so many delicious scents to choose from, you’ll be able to craft a candle that creates ambiance and aromatherapy benefits that meet your needs.
