"For over one year I have made a tea with fennel seeds and finely chopped ginger and then, chewed, and swallowed what was left.
I did this the night before and the day of the colonic.
When I discovered that fennel oil was available and very inexpensive,
I decided to try it instead to minimize the cramps resulting from gas buildup.
I put about ten drops directly on my tongue, a beautiful taste, and then followed
with a full glass of water. This was the same routine as with the seeds and ginger.
WOW! Not only did it minimize the cramping even better, but it resulted in one of the
best and most thorough colonics I've ever had."
"Sweet Fennel oil used topically on the wrists; licorice or anise tea diffused in
water for 10 minutes very good mitigator of sugar blues/cravings/PMS and menopausal symptoms
also great for feelings to anger to begin dissipating."
Fennel for Gas Pain Relief
"One day last week I ate too many roasted soybeans. I had pretty strong gas pains
in my lower stomach. So much so, that I couldn't stand up straight comfortably.
As I was looking in the desk top reference for essential oils, I put fennel on my lower abdomen.
I continued to hunch over the book for about 1 minute, until I suddenly realized that the pain was gone!
I could sit up straight! Thank you Young Living Essential Oils!"
