Treatment of Bloating with Essential Oils

Bloating:

Abdominal bloating causes mild to severe discomfort, pressure, and an increase in the abdomen's diameter. In many cases, bloating occurs due to overeating, excessive intake of gas-producing foods, or constipation. Bloating can be a symptom of bowel obstruction, food allergies, and some serious diseases. Seek medical intervention if symptoms worsen or do not not improve with both time and the application of natural remedies.
