What is diarrhea?

As the bulk of food waste passes through the large intestine, much of the water contained in it is reabsorbed through the intestinal walls, so that the final state of the feces is moderately soft without being watery. Disruptions of the normal passage of food through the large and small intestines will disturb this pattern.

If passage of food is too fast (most often due to an inflammation of the intestines), it will not allow enough water to be absorbed, and gives rise to diarrhea. Viruses and bacteria, irritant drugs, poisons, and allergic reactions are among the commonest reasons that lead to inflammation. But, the intestines are also influenced in their functioning by the endocrine and nervous systems, and anything (shock, fear, anxiety or continued stress) that disturbs either of these two systems, will often result in diarrhea.

Essential oils that can help alleviate diarrhea

Some essential oils are useful in helping diarrhea because of their calming and soothing effect on the intestinal lining, some because they have an antispasmodic action on the intestinal muscles, some because of their astringent properties and yet others because they calm the nervous system, and allay fear and anxiety

The choice of essential oil for helping with any case of diarrhea will, therefore, depend on identifying the cause of the diarrhea.

  • Chamomile, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Neroli and Peppermint are among the most effective antispasmodic oils, and are all used to allay attacks of diarrhea. Eucalyptus might be the best choice if there is any suspicion that a viral infection is the cause of the diarrhea, as it is one of the most potent anti-viral agents in aromatherapy. Chamomile is a good choice if a food allergy is involved, being an anti-allergic oil.
  • When diarrhea is provoked by fear, anxiety or stress, Chamomile, Lavender or Neroli will help. Neroli is especially helpful for the prevention of diarrhea in stressful circumstances, such as exams, interviews, auditions and other short-term stressful occasions.
  • Sometimes warming and carminative essential oils, such as Benzoin, Ginger, Fennel or Black Pepper are used to relieve the pain in diarrhea.

The best way to use the oils is to do a gentle massage of the abdomen with essential oils diluted in a carrier oil.
