It was a quiet, peaceful room. The curtains were drawn and all was quiet except the soft background music. My massage therapist friend was moving around my growing pregnant body massaging tight places.
Then without any warning, I started hiccuping. These were not just little hiccups, but were big, deep-in-your-belly-type hiccups. They continued truly messing with the serene atmosphere of the experience.
Not fazed, my friend said she had something to help me. I was expecting one of the home remedies that had never worked for me – a spoon of peanut butter, a taste of white sugar or doing something with my ears.
She returned with a bottle of essential oil. I was intrigued as she began massaging a drop of Endoflex into my lower tummy. I waited for the next hiccup, but it never came. “That is a neat coincidence,” I thought.
Nonetheless, I ordered a bottle of Endoflex with my next order. I have had several occasions to apply it to my hiccuping Oilist family members, and it has worked every time!
Just this week as I was cuddling my Little Oilist to sleep, the big deep-in-your-belly hiccups started and began annoying her. “I need an oil!” she wailed. Within minutes after applying Endoflex, she was snuggled again in my arms with NO hiccups. A coincidence? After many times of seeing this work, I think not!
Endoflex has a base of sesame seed oil and contains 6 essential oils – spearmint, sage, geranium, myrtle, nutmeg and German chamomile. I loved researching each of these 6 constituents. Here is a little that I learned about each:
Spearmint – “Is treasured for its unique minty flavor, as well as its ability to help calm tummies and support normal digestion as a dietary supplement. With naturally occurring menthol, carvone, and limonene, Spearmint Vitality essential oil can add a cooling effect to foods that is both pleasant and beneficial.”
Sage – “Has a spicy, herbaceous aroma. It has been recognized for its ability to strengthen the senses and vital centers of the body and to support metabolism. It is helpful for supporting the respiratory, reproductive, nervous, and other body systems.”
Geranium – “Has an uplifting, floral aroma and includes the naturally occurring constituents citronellol and geraniol.”
Myrtle – “Has a clear, fresh, herbaceous scent, similar to eucalyptus. Supportive of the respiratory system, skin, and hair, it has been researched for its effects on glandular imbalances and its soothing effects when inhaled.”
Nutmeg – “Has a sweet, warm, spicy scent similar to the spice commonly used in cooking. Comforting and soothing, nutmeg helps boost energy. It also supports nervous and endocrine systems and prostaglandin balance.”
German Chamomile – “Has been used to support the body’s natural response to irritation and injury. This oil contains chamazulene, a compound studied for its ability to help the body’s natural inflammatory response.”
Endoflex is a wonderful addition to your essential oil collection!
