DoTerra Essential Oil Support For:
Crohn’s disease is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It usually affects the intestines, but may occur anywhere from the mouth to the end of the rectum (anus).
While the exact cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown, the condition is linked to a problem with the body’s immune system response.
Normally, the immune system helps protect the body, but with Crohn’s disease the immune system can’t tell the difference between normal body tissue and foreign substances. The result is an overactive immune response that leads to chronic inflammation. This is called an autoimmune disorder.
People with Crohn’s disease have ongoing (chronic) inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. Crohn’s disease may occur in any area of the digestive tract.
A person’s genes and environmental factors seem to play a role in the development of Crohn’s disease. The body may be overreacting to normal bacteria in the intestines.
The disease may occur at any age, but it usually occurs in people between ages 15 – 35. Risk factors include:
Family history of Crohn’s disease, Smoking, Poor diet and Jewish ancestry.
Those with Crohn’s have noticed:
- Crampy abdominal (belly area) pain
- Loss of appetite
- Pain with passing stool (tenesmus)
- Persistent, watery diarrhea
- Unintentional weight loss
Discomfort often comes in episodes and may be triggered by stress, insufficient fluids, inadequate nutrition, allergic reaction to certain foods, or just not eating properly (gulping a meal down, eating on the run, etc.).

As a sufferer of Crohn’s Disease for over 20 years, I have found that a capsule of 2 drops of DigestZen and 2 drops of frankincense makes a world of difference in the pain level that I feel on a daily basis.
I have also found that using cassia, DigestZen, and peppermint externally can help with the pain as well.
I also drink a peppermint tea (4 cups water, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 drop peppermint – work on it until you get your taste right) everyday that helps me with my Crohns.
My husband has Crohn’s. Here’s what he put together for it using essential oils:
Capsules of frankincense, peppermint, and DigestZen mixed in various ratios seem to have the best effect. Mixing the oils in 1:1:1 seems to work well. Externally, rubbing cassia over the painful area seems to relax the bowel. However, this should be done after showering as hot water will increase the heat of the cassia making it painful on the skin.
A lady stated that she had had Crohn’s for over 20 years and that now she uses a capsule of 2 drops Digest Zen and 2 drops frankincense and fills the rest of the capsule with Virgin Coconut Oil taken on a daily basis. VCO is excellent for Crohn’s and when synergistically combined with Digest Zen and frankincense it does wonders.
Also using cassia, DigestZen, and peppermint externally helps with the pain.
These oils also work well with Crohn’s, they are; ginger and marjoram. A peppermint tea (4 cups water, 2 tbsp agave, 1 drop peppermint) also helps and could be drunk daily. I would also take the LLW
