DiGize - Digestive Support

Can we talk about Young Living's life changing DiGize blend for a minute? I was so excited when I realized that Young Living was adding it to their new Premium Starter Kits because it is honestly indispensable in any essential oil wellness regimen. It is a dietary supplement, meaning it was formulated to be generally regarded as safe for human consumption, and the perfect supplement to any  healthy weight maintenance or wellness journey. Since it's chalk full of antioxidants and vitamins found in the essential oils that support digestion, it is an ideal supplement for every day life, travel, or in an effort to support digestive comfort. In fact, you'll notice that most of the oils therein are popular cooking spices.

Young Living says: "DiGize™ is one of Young Living's exclusive and proprietary dietary supplements. This unique blend contains Ginger, Anise, Fennel, Peppermint, Tarragon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, and Juniper essential oils, and includes naturally occurring constituents like menthol, citrol, and zingiberen. Use DiGize with every meal, along with Essentialzymes-4™, to support a daily wellness regimen*. When traveling abroad, use DiGize as a dietary supplement in your water. DiGize is an ideal complement to the nutritional supplements ComforTone® and JuvaTone®."

The first essential oil ingredient in this beautiful blend is Tarragon. It supports the digestive system and general wellness. It has also been used to support emotional balance and PMS management (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 117).

Ginger is another very popular cooking ingredient. It supports digestive comfort, energizes, and soothes occasional nausea. (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 74).

"Peppermint is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion." It also energizes, cools and refreshes, and supports healthy weight management (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 103).

Juniper "works as a powerful detoxifier and cleanser and supports healthy kidney function." It can also help alleviate occasional bloating by supporting healthy kidney and urinary tract function. It's even used to support emotional well being (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 139, 82).

Fennel "is stimulating to the gastrointestinal system ... For hundreds of years, Fennel seeds have been used" to support healthy digestion and hormonal balancing (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 68, 139). I have very successfully used it to maintain or increase breast milk production, myself.

Anise supports digestion and is similar to Fennel in that it can support hormonal balance (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 139).

Patchouli belongs to the mint family and has a variety of uses, including supporting healthy digestion, helping alleviate occasional nausea and bloating, and supporting relaxation (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 103, 139).

Lemongrass "is used for purification and digestion support" (Essential Oils Pocket Reference, 86).

Specific Blends & Uses:
  • Combine in a veggie capsule with Copaiba, Lemon, and/or Frankincense to soothe occasional digestive discomfort, support the immune and digestive systems.
  • Take as a dietary supplement while traveling or trying to maintain a healthy weight and hormonal balance.

Caution should be exercised with first time oil use - skin patch tests prior to use and dilution with carrier oil - especially in children. Children, especially under the age of 6, should never ingest essential oils without advice of a healthcare professional since they are concentrated and potent.
