Tamer™ Digestive Blend

Contributed by Dr. Damian Rodriguez, DHSc, MS

Digestive discomfort isn’t limited to adults. While a number of essential oils are effective at addressing digestive issues when used internally, you want to minimize risk as much as possible with children. This usually means topical use and dilution. Utilizing the most current evidence-based research, doTERRA Kids Collection introduces its newest member: Tamer Digestive Blend.

The Tamer Digestive Blend was formulated specifically to ease the upset tummies of your children. The proprietary combination of digestive-supporting essential oils is provided in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil in an easy-to-use roll-on. Combining the best of historical use and modern science, Tamer is the perfect blend to ease motion sickness on road trips or calm feelings of stomach upset after a large meal.


Steam distilled from the Mentha spicata plant, the carvone, limonene, and 1-8, cineole rich Spearmint essential oil is one of the go-to’s for digestive support. The whole spearmint plant has been used for centuries in the Easter Mediterranean region and modern science is beginning to understand why. Along with being a pleasant minty aroma, clinical research has shown that inhalation of Spearmint may help to soothe feelings of nausea1.

Japanese Peppermint

Tamer is the only doTERRA blend that contains Japanese peppermint (Mentha Canadensis) essential oil. This rare essential oil has one of the highest concentrations of menthol, the monoterpene alcohol that is primarily associated with Mentha piperita (Peppermint) essential oil. Clinical and experimental research have shown that topical application of menthol can sooth and cool the skin2,3.


Ginger may be the essential oil most commonly associated with digestive support. While most of the research regarding the digestive support offered by ginger involves internal use, clinical research has shown that it can have a soothing effect when applied topically4.

Black Pepper

Black Pepper is a combination of beta-caryophyllene, limonene, and carene. Among its many digestive benefits, when applied topically, Black Pepper has been shown to have soothing properties5.

Parsley Seed

Parsley is a foundational component of Chinese traditional medicine and has historically been used for a variety of digestive concerns. Due to its concentration of limonene, Parsley seed essential oil has a characteristically uplifting aroma.

How to Use Tamer Digestive Blend

As a more sensitive alternative to DigestZen, Tamer can be used topically in two specific ways:

  1. After a large meal or rich dessert, apply Tamer to the abdomen to ease discomfort.
  2. Before a long road trip, apply Tamer to the wrists, rub together, and inhale to minimize feelings of nausea.
