Digize essential oil blend from Young Living has an amazing super power when it comes to supporing our digestive systems. Most people don’t love the smell, but it is so effective that people love the oil anyway. I’m constantly amazed at how many testimonials I hear in how this oil has helped people.
The very first testimonial I heard about this oil blend was from a friend who used it on her dogs. Every time she put her canine babies in the car, one in particular got carsick and vomited. She started to put Digize on his tummy each time and he stopped the vomiting and appeared less stressed out from the car ride!
I personally do NOT like the smell of Digize and yet I still grab it if my tummy is feeling upset. I like to put it on the bottoms of my feet and then put socks on so I don’t have to smell it. This is a great oil to bring along if you are traveling by boat! Sea sickness and motionsickness can be helped with a little digestive support too. If I were going on a cruise, I’d take Digize and Peppermint for sure.
So lets break this bad boy down and see what is in it that makes it so super.
Digize has multiple digestive support oils in it. The first one I’d like to mention is Tarragon.
The botanical name for Tarragon is Artemisia Dracunculus, and Dracunculus means “Little Dragon”. Because Tarragon has been known for helping women to ease the discomforts of menstruation, it has been suggested that this oil helps “tame the dragon” within for women.
The Essential Oil of Tarragon supports the circulation of blood and lymph. It aids in the distribution of nutrients, oxygen, hormones, and enzymes throughout the body. Furthermore, it discourages the accumulation of toxins in the joints. It keeps the blood flowing and moving and is considered a circulation supporting oil. It also speeds up digestion by getting the digestive juices flowing. It is known for helping move food through the body if it is sluggish. Tarragon also discourages microbes from growing on the skin, so has the side benefit of supporting healthy skin!
The second oil in Digize that you should know about is Ginger, which has been known throughout the ages for helping with nausea. According to this pubmed.gov article, it helps patients who are post operative with it! (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27841938). Ginger is also known as a circulation oil and supports heart health. It also is known to relieve menstrual discomfor as well as discomfort in joints. But it is most famous for digestive support. It has laxative and stimulant effects.
Peppermint is the next oil in Digize and this oil is very well known for it’s digestive support. Peppermint cools the heat in your esophagus and relieves discomfort in muscles and organs. A few drops of Peppermint vitality under your tongue helps support your digestive system in many ways. It calms and cools and helps with nausea as well.
Juniper is also found in this blend. Juniper is known for supporting the bladder and urinary tract. It helps the body flush out excess fluids and can help reduce bloating. Digestive enzymes can be stimulated by Juniper which makes it easier to break down and absorb protein, fats and nutrients from foods. It is also known for helping support the body to deal with heart burn.
Lemongrass is another oil in this super-power oil blend called Digize. It has been known for centuries anecdotally for stomach distress, and all things gastric. Lemongrass oil is also known to relieve discomfort from gas irritation in the bowels. According to research published in 2006, lemongrass may help to slow diarrhea.
Anise oil is also present in this blend. An animal study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology treated rats with gastric ulcers using anise and found that it helped protect against damage and exhibited anti-ulcer activities in the body. It is used to help rid the body of flatulence and has been traditionally used for colic.
Fennel is also in this oil blend. Fennel has a relaxing effect on the abdominal muscles and therefore is supportive to your body when you experience cramps, hiccups, and spasms. According to recent research conducted by the Department of Pediatrics at St. Petersburg Medical Academy of Postdoctoral Education in Russia, fennel seed oil has been shown to reduce intestinal spasms and increase the movement of cells in the small intestine of infants, in particular through studies of infants who have colic. The use of fennel oil emulsion eliminated colic, according to the Wessel criteria, in 65 percent of infants in the treatment group, which was significantly better than 23.7 percent of infants in the control group. Published in Alternate Therapies in Health and Medicine, the findings noted there was dramatic improvement of colic in the treatment group, concluding that fennel seed oil emulsion helps decrease the intensity of colic in infants.

Patchouli is the final oil in this blend that I want to highlight. Patchouli oil TONES. It is a tonic. That means it tones your liver, intestines and stomach and improves your ability to break down food and absorb nutrients properly. These are metabolic benefits, so patchouli oil will give you more energy and help your body to function properly.
