Bedtime Tea to Support Your Gut
I am an avid essential oiler for many different things because they have truly changed my life. One of my favorite oils to use when I am having any digestive issues (which doesn't happen often, but I like to have this on hand incase!) is DiGize!

This powerhouse is an oil blend that combines Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli; which contain antioxidants and can support the digestive system when taken internally. Digize is safe for consumption, but I only trust Young Living Essential Oils to take internally. It’s so important to check the quality of oils you are using.

This oil has quite a strong taste and it’s certainly an acquired one, so I always recommend starting with adding a few drops to a vegetable capsule to take!

I’m sure you have heard that fennel seeds are really helpful when it comes to digestion, hence while they're the star of this oil. Often times you can find them in after meal teas too and the seeds sold so you can make your own. So what is so special about fennel and how can it support your gut?

First off, fennel has anti-inflammatory effects! Chronic inflammation in the digestive tract can contribute to various digestive issues. Fennel contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may help reduce inflammation in the gut.

Next, it can actually prevent nausea and feelings of nauseousness too! Fennel has been traditionally used to alleviate nausea and motion sickness. It may exert its anti-nausea effects by calming the digestive system.

Lastly, fennel has been show to reduce bloating and gas! Fennel may help alleviate bloating and gas by preventing the formation of excess gas in the digestive system. It can also assist in expelling gas from the digestive tract.

Another great way to get fennel in your body is by drinking this yummy tea! Enjoy in the evening before bed or after a meal.
