Ease bloating, sore muscles and stress easily with this method

Imagine eliminating all these discomforts with one hit

Essential oils have become my savior over many years.
I use them as a muscle relaxant for digestive and stomach upsets and general well-being.
There is something about the smells of particular oils that immediately ease the stress and worry of the day.
To me, it’s very similar to a meditation using the sense of smell as my trigger.
I always have my oil burner filled with a scent that draws me in, yet away from my negative feelings & emotions.
The aroma of the oils triggers relaxation in the nervous system and the brain, releasing tension and allowing for the flow of peacefulness and calm. It also helps me become creative, and ideas seem to flow without restriction.
It’s amazing what a wonderful scent can do for you (coffee is another favourite!).
Here are my four top oils to use daily


Peppermint is the most amazing essential oil for calming stressed and tense muscles, relieving headaches, and soothing an upset or distressed stomach and digestion.
In addition, peppermint leaves have analgesic properties that provide pain relief and an anti-inflammatory which eases inflammation.

For digestion upset

To use peppermint oil, place a couple of drops of pure essential oil with some almond massage oil.
Rub on your abdomen in a clockwise motion until it provides soothing relief. Next, add a few drops of peppermint oil to your heat pack and place them on your inflamed stomach.
You will feel a warm and cooling sensation on the skin for a while and experience some redness. That is just the peppermint oil working its magic and releasing its anti-inflammatory properties. Use less peppermint if you find it uncomfortable.

For muscular soreness relief

Place four drops of peppermint oil with some almond oil for each muscle section (depending on how sore you are).
Massage onto your muscles, then use some tension to dig deep into any knots and particular nerve endings, causing some discomfort. You will feel hot yet cool in the area. Allow the properties of the peppermint oil to take effect. Allow the aroma to draw you into relaxation.
Expert tip: If you want to get even better results, add some magnesium cream to the area as well, about 15 minutes before bed. You will have a sensational night sleep and feel pain-free the next day! WARNING: Please wash your hands after using peppermint oil. It can get into your eyes and become unpleasant!


Lavender oil contains antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
In addition, it heals burns and soothes bugs and mosquito bites.
Used at night, it can promote a restful sleep due to its aroma.
It can also cure anxiety, depression, restfulness and insomnia. Use in conjunction with the peppermint oil when applying as a massage oil.

For digestion

Use in conjunction with the peppermint.
I would recommend five drops.
Massage onto your abdomen.
The smell of peppermint and lavender mixed is delightful for the senses.

For muscular soreness relief

Use five drops with peppermint oil and almond massage oil, rub them onto sore muscles. Then, massage onto your scalp to induce sleep and relaxation.
Expert tip: Add a few drops of lavender oil, to a small purse spray container, with some purified water (try Evian or even alkalizing water).
Use a calming spritzer during the day or even a pillow sleep-inducing spray at night.


Chamomile cures just about everything!
Use it to treat any kinds of inflammation, rashes (including nappy rash), put a few drops on a hot towel, and place them on your head for instant anxiety relief.
In addition, studies show that chamomile is excellent for reducing wind and stomach irritation and helps the muscles in the digestive tract relax, making it easier to get the daily poo out!
Chamomile also helps ease the discomfort of your intestine.

For digestion

I recommend three drops of this with your peppering & lavender mix.
Another great option is to ingest some chamomile tea from leaves.
Soak the chamomile in hot water as much as possible, then tip accordingly.
Very good for relaxation and calmness

For muscular soreness relief

Muscles need recovery after training.
Chamomile is best suited for the evening to relax the muscles skeletal system.
Add together with lavender only if you are experiencing anxiety or extreme stress.
Expert tip: Soak chamomile tea bags or tea leave bags on your eyes, relax and meditate. Take off and notice the bags under your eyes may have shrunk or just disappeared.


Soaking ginger with hot water and lemon is my ultimate elixir every morning.
It’s an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory drink. It also relaxes my gut and decreases any bloating.
Ginger works so well in conjunction with the oils above, increasing the anti-inflammatory properties and aiding in much speedier ease of stomach and digestion irritation.
Ginger also helps to ease bloating and effectively assist in releasing trapped gas in the colon and increasing the rate of gastric emptying.

For digestion

May I suggest using two drops of this oil with the others above and adding them onto the abdomen area with the massage oil.
Use fresh, peeled ginger in your tea and drink water throughout the day. Of course, a lemon wedge of two wouldn’t cause any harm!
I recommend drinking ginger and lemon juice as tea every morning for digestion.
This helps to aid elimination. It also cleanses the spleen and kidneys.
One or more cups are recommended on an empty stomach.

For muscular soreness relief

The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger make it an essential component of your muscle massage.
Add to the above oils, and watch the calm, soothing feelings wash over you.
Expert tip: If you feel particularly nauseous, please peel a small slice of ginger, and chew it slowly and carefully. You could also add it into your water or hot water (making a tea or flavoured water)
