Essential Oils for Optimal Digestion

By Jodi Cohen

A joyful woman showing fresh vegetables from a grocery bag in a bright kitchen setting.

I don’t know about you, but it feels like a rare moment that I actually get to sit down, relax and eat a leisurely meal without any distractions or interruptions.  More often than I’d like to admit, I am rushing to finish a meal so I can drive the kids to school, myself to a meeting or dash to my next activity.

Unfortunately, our health depends not just on what we eat, but our ability to digest, absorb and assimilate our nutrients.  Topically applied Essential Oils for optimal digestion can play a key supporting role in keeping us healthy.



Essential Oils for Optimal Digestion

Parasympathetic™:  Digestion is a “rest and digest” parasympathetic event.  Our nervous system needs to be in this relaxed state for the optimal digestive cascade to occur.  Applying a small drop of Parasympathetic® blend to the vagal nerve (behind the ear lobe on the mastoid bone) helps begin the digestive process by trigger the mouth to release saliva and the stomach release HCL.


The Pancreas™ secretes digestive enzymes that help break down the carbohydrates, proteins, and fats so the nutrients can be properly absorbed in the small intestine. The pancreas also controls blood sugar levels and can get overworked and fatigued, impacting its optimal function.  To put the pancreas in balance, consider rubbing some Pancreas™ on the fifth rib (2 down from where the bottom of your bra) on the left side of the body to help put the pancreas back in balance for optimal function.


The Gall Bladder™ stores and concentrates bile, which helps to emulsify fats for optimal absorption.  Bile is supposed to flow relatively easily through the bile duct to the small intestine.  Unfortunately, it can often become viscous and stagnant, impeding fat digestion and resulting in symptoms like mild headaches, pain between the shoulder blades and floating stools.  Fat assimilation is critical for numerous functions in the body, including the absorption of critical fat soluble minerals, like vitamins A, E, D and K.  Applying some Gall Bladder™ to the gall bladder, on the right side of the body under the bra under-wire or along and slightly under the right rib cage, can help ease bile flow for optimal fat assimilation and absorption.


If you, or anyone you love, is seeking to improve your digestive function, consider Parasympathetic®, Pancreas™ and Gall Bladder™ Essential Oils.
