There’s a lot that goes into digestion. Starting with the mouth and working through the throat, esophagus, stomach, intestines, pancreas, liver and so on, digesting food, something we do multiple times each day, affects many parts of our body. It’s no surprise then, that poor digestion can lead to major issues, including anything from irritable bowel syndrome all the way to liver problems, ulcerative colitis and even cancer. If your guts are nuts, the rest of your body is going to be affected.

As we learn more about how much our digestion affects other parts of our body, finding new and natural ways to aid in digestion is becoming increasingly important. Enter: essential oils. Sure, they smell nice, but with ingredients like ginger, peppermint, and cardamom, essential oils can also help facilitate better digestion. Here’s what to get.

  

1. Naturise Black Seed Oil

Naturise is a USDA-approved organic essential oil that uses cold-pressed, unfiltered black seed oil, which is packed with the Nigella stevia seed, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants to aid in anti-inflammation, which helps with digestion, kidney and joint issues. The oil is so safe, it can be used in place of olive oil on vegetables to help with internal issues, or as a topical oil on the face or scalp to help with skin and hair health.
