Dyspepsia (Indigestion) and Flatulence
Dyspepsia or indigestion is a common complaint among both children and adults. As a carminative and antispasmodic agent, lavender is especially valuable for all types of digestive disorders where there is a strong nervous or emotional element involved in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia, lavender is indicated specifically for ‘depressive states associated with digestive dysfunction’.
Mix 3 drops of lavender in 1 tsp of carrier oil and massage the tummy gently in a clockwise direction.
Other measures: chamomile or peppermint oil are also helpful, used in combination; chamomile, peppermint or fennel herb tea, with a little honey, are also beneficial.
