Irritable Bowel Syndrome:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the irregular and uncoordinated movement of the muscular contractions of the digestive tract. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is the most common digestive disorder seen by physicians and is characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, constipation and/or diarrhea (often alternating).

Essential Oils Suggested for Treatment:


Suggestions for Use:
  • Combine the essential oil with a carrier oil and massage the abdomen
  • Add 10 drops of essential oil to the bath and soak for fifteen minutes

Irritable Bowel Syndrome should not be confused with Crohn's disease or other serious bowel disorders. If you have any concerns regarding Irritable Bowel Syndrome, consult your physician, as the symptoms of IBS are similar to other serious illnesses.
