Treatment of Diarrhea with Essential Oils

Diarrhea: 

Most people have suffered from loose, watery stools, abdominal cramping, and the sense of urgency that accompanies diarrhea.  Diarrhea is typically caused by a virus, although dietary indiscretion can also be a contributing factor. Most cases of diarrhea are temporary, lasting no longer than 24 hours and responding well to treatment, if diarrhea persists beyond 24 hours, contains blood, undigested food, or mucus, or is accompanied by vomiting that prevents fluid intake, seek emergency treatment.
