As Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) becomes more common in today’s society, it’s difficult for medical professionals to pinpoint one source as the cause. Possible IBS triggers can range from a stressful environment to consuming more processed foods that have been treated with chemicals and pesticides. In turn, these sources have the ability to alter our good gut bacteria.
One method for easing IBS symptoms is to inhale the aroma of essential oils. At A.M.P. Floracel®, we understand that IBS can create discomfort. However, there are natural methods that can alleviate IBS symptoms and digestive complaints, such as our Aloe Vera supplement, eating a healthy diet, consuming probiotics and inhaling essential oils! We have provided a list of essential oils that can be inhaled and consumed to help treat IBS symptoms.

Thieves essential oil is one of the most treasured and well-known oils. It consists of a blend of clove, cinnamon, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus.
