Ginger can be used to soothe a stomach internally, but applying on the tummy for bloating relief is almost as effective and will certainly give you a boost.
2. Chamomile Oil
Chamomile reduces bowel inflammation and eases the cramping pain. It can also eliminate gas in the intestines. It’s also been noted (though scientifically unproven) that it helps rid the body of parasites.
3. Peppermint Oil
Peppermint oil, diluted with a carrier oil, can help with most forms of pain but can help eliminate symptoms of bloating as well. Peppermint calms stomach muscles, reducing pain from cramping. It also helps eliminate gas from the intestines.
You can also use peppermint tea (not the oil) in combination to help clear the symptoms internally.
4. Cumin Essential Oil
Cumin oil is great for pain, cramps, and detoxing. It can help with IBS symptoms like diarrhea and constipation. This oil should only be applied at night as exposure to sunlight can turn it toxic. Pregnant women should NOT use it.

Some oils may cause skin irritation in people with sensitive skin. It is recommended to perform a patch test before use. To patch test, place one drop on the back of your wrist and leave for an hour or more. If irritation or redness occurs wash the area with olive oil then cold water and do not use the oil.
