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.

Along with being a pleasant minty aroma, clinical research has shown that inhalation of Spearmint may help to soothe feelings of nausea1.
