How do you improve digestion using essential oils? Our health depends on what we eat and our ability to digest, absorb and assimilate nutrients. Topically applied essential oils can play a key supporting role in optimizing our digestion. When digestion is challenged, topically applied remedies can offer valuable digestive support. Vibrantblueoils.com offers a great Digestion Support Kit that contain three oils (Parasympathetic, Pancreas and Gall Bladder) to help with optimal digestion. Continue reading this blog to find out all about these amazing oils and what they can do to enhance your digestion.
• Parasympathetic blend: Digestion is a “rest and digest” parasympathetic event. Our nervous system should be in a relaxed state for optimal digestion. 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 triggering the optimal digestive cascade where saliva is released from the mouth, HCL from the stomach, bile from the gall bladder and digestive enzymes from the pancreas and appropriate absorption and assimilation in the small intestine and elimination through the large intestine.
• The Pancreas blend: 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 controls blood sugar levels. It get’s overworked and fatigued, impacting its optimal function. To put the pancreas in balance, consider rubbing some Vibrant Blue Oils Pancreas Blend on the fifth rib (2 down from 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 blend: Stores and concentrates bile, which helps to emulsify fats for optimal absorption. Bile should flow 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 Vibrant Blue Oils Gall Bladder to the gall bladder, on the right side of the body under the bra underwire or along and slightly under the right rib cage, can help ease bile flow for optimal fat assimilation and digestion.
Dr. Eric Z has a lot of good things to say about how to improve digestion using Essential Oils.
“We’ve been hard on our digestive system for decades, and it’s only getting worse. Not only does the food (and drink) we consume play a direct role, but lifestyle factors right down to how stressed we feel can dole out damage to the gut. We know that using essential oils for stomach health can be beneficial, but what if the damage is already done? If you are an adult in our society, chances are, this applies to you!
As some of the most intriguing and powerful components of herbal material, essential oils can be used as a tool to help heal the damaged gut.
Sometimes, an individual’s gut can be damaged without their knowledge. Perhaps the bacterial balance is off and the immune system is faltering. Maybe their emotions swing wildly, or cognitive function falters.
The gut is a command post for much of the body. With nervous system transmitters that rival the CNS in the brain and spinal cord. So even if you don’t think you have gut health problems, it’s worth looking at your history, lifestyle, and dietary choices to consider whether you have damaged your gut in any way.
Dr. Z lists some of the issues that essential oils will help with where the gut is concerned. Leaky Gut, SIBO and Dysbiosis, IBS, Gerd and Nausea.
My Story and how I improved digestion using Essential Oils.
I have personally used the parasympathetic blend to help me with detoxing my brain and create better digestion. I started using the Parasympathetic blend about 3 months ago and it has really helped me to not only digest but to absorb the minerals that I was lacking due to poor digestion.
Along with digestion issues, I had leaky gut and was full of toxins which created migraines and arthritic pain in my back and knees. Breathing in the Parasympathetic blend has really helped remove all of this pain. I am virtually pain free now and have a lot more energy. I am excited about purchasing the Pancreas and Gall Bladder blend next to continue with optimizing digestion and absorption as well as cleaning out toxins.

See what Stephanie Clairmont has to say about how to improve digestion using Essential Oils.
“Providing digestive comfort and supporting normal gastrointestinal function are two of my personal favorite uses for Essential Oils. They are shown to help with upset stomach and calm spasms that disrupt normal motility. They help alleviate nausea, provide calming support to the entire digestive system, and alleviate occasional gas and constipation.”
