Diverticulosis is when the walls of your digestive tract form pockets called diverticula.

In the outer lining, the internal layer of the intestine pushes into weak points. This strain, creating tiny pouches, makes them bulge out. It occurs most frequently in your colon, which is the lower portion of your large intestine.

Diverticulosis 7


Most people who have diverticulosis don’t show any signs. Those who do might have:

  • Belly pain or cramping
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea

Treat diverticulosis with essential oils

The inflammation, pain, flatulence, and discomfort of this condition are effectively eased by using essential oils. Rub a small amount of the following oil over the abdomen twice a day:

Peppermint 2 drops
Chamomile roman 1 drop
Rosemary 3 drops
Cardamom 2 drops

Blend together and then dilute by adding 3–5 drops to each teaspoon (5 mL) of carrier oil.

An infusion can be made by adding 1 drop of peppermint essential oil to a teaspoon of honey, and diluting it in 3½ fl. oz. (100 mL) of warm water, then filtering it through an unbleached paper coffee filter. Then, take a tablespoon of the filtered mixture and add to a small glass of warm water, and sip slowly. Other essential oils should not be substituted in this method. Store the mixture in the fridge, ready for other occasions.

Other Essential Oils That Could Be Used to Treat This Condition: *basil linalol (Ocimum basilicum ct. linalool), *marjoram, sweet (Origanum majorana), *spearmint (Mentha spicata), *clary sage (Salvia sclarea), *coriander seed (Coriandrum sativum), *ginger (Zingiber officinale)
