Do you eat too much over the November and December Season?…Some natural ways to help yourself…

christmas flowerFor some reason, when it comes to the festivities surrounding Christmas, Hannukah, New Year…we lose our reason when it comes to eating. We will stuff ourselves to nausea on meats, sweets, and pastries. We vow every year that next year we will control ourselves…but…

So, until some of us can learn more self control, we have some herbs and essential oils to tell you about that help calm and soothe your digestion.

Tummy Tea Tummy Tea contains Wilde-als, Fennel, Lavender, mint, Comfrey and Thyme. These herbs together help to ease indigestion,nausea and cramping. The Lavender helps to calm the digestive system. This is a very successful combination tea.

CalendulaCalendula This herb helps to stimulate the production of bile which aids in the digestion of food.

ChamomileChamomile aids soothing those suffering with indigestion and colic which can be caused by eating foods that don’t agree with us.

Lemon VerbenaLemon Verbena aids in soothing symptoms such as indigestion, colic, flatulence and diarrhea.

PeppermintPeppermint helps with nausea, cleaning out the bile ducts, cleansing the gallbladder, cramping and flatulence-all of which are associated with over-indulgence.

 

There are many essential oils that are helpful for indigestion and nausea: Peppermint, Lavender, Ginger and Cinnamon. There are others, but these oils which are well-known and easy to obtain, are a good place to start.

Have a happy and healthy season of goodwill.

Lots of love
