Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I had been taking another product and developed what I believe was about to be a full blown bowel obstruction. The day my Young Living oils arrived at my house I was in intense pain in my upper right quadrant around where your gallbladder would be (except I don't have mine anymore).

The pain was so bad I thought I'd have to call my husband to come home. I also was very nauseated.

As soon as my oils arrived I grabbed the Peppermint...took a couple drops and rubbed it on the area and on my abdomen and also put a couple drops in water and sipped on it.

Initially the pain increased but I knew that meant the Peppermint had gone straight to the source. I grabbed the PanAway...took two drops and rubbed over the area and immediately is calmed down. I also sipped on my distilled water in my 64 oz cup with two drops Lemon in it.

I was uncomfortable the rest of the evening but not early as bad as before. That night before going to bed I had my husband massage my feet and over my abdomen with the Peppermint, Lavender, Peace & Calming and PanAway...I cannot remember if we used anymore of the oils out of our Kit or not.

The next morning the swelling in that area was gone along with the pain!

Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
2.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowel — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
3.Associated topics: bowel-obstruction,constipation-/-irregularity,colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowel — "A 4 weeks treatment with peppermint oil improves abdominal symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.... The symptoms evaluated were: abdominal bloating, abdominal pain or discomfort, diarrhea, constipation, feeling of incomplete evacuation, pain at defecation, passage of gas or mucus, and urgency at defecation."Link
4.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowel — "In traditional folk medicine, tarragon [Artemisia dracunculus L. (Asteraceae)] has been used for treatment of pain and gastrointestinal disturbances.... This study reported the peripheral and central antinociceptive activity of the EOAD [essential oil of A. dracunculus] and rationalized the traditional use of the plant in the treatment of different painful conditions."Link
5.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowel — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
6.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowel — "Phytogenic compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are currently discussed as promising complementary agents in prevention and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Our study aimed to evaluate possible protective and curative effects of broccoli extract (BE) and of the essential oils of turmeric (Cuo), thyme (To), and rosemary (Ro) in a rat model with a mild dextran sulphate sodium- (DSS-) induced colitis.... We conclude that the phytogenic additives tested have a promising anti-inflammatory potential in vivo and a particular role in the prevention of IBD."Link
7.Associated topics: colon-/-gut-/-intestines-/-bowel — "Fennel seed oil has been shown to reduce intestinal spasms and increase motility of the small intestine.... Our study suggests that fennel seed oil emulsion is superior to placebo in decreasing intensity of infantile colic."Link
