Essential Oils that help with a Gluten Attack

Here are some Essential Oils that help with a Gluten Attack. After discovering the wellness benefits of essential oils and using them for over 9 months I have realized they can help in many areas of my life. Essential Oils have been able to help my digestive issues associated with Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance.

Essential Oils that help with a Gluten Attack:

After being diagnosed with Celiac Disease I avoid gluten 100%.  If I get accidentally “glutened” I am able to turn to essential oils and they give me some relief while the gluten is being processed through my body. I recently went out to eat and was told that the food that I was served was gluten free.  Within minutes of taking the first bite I knew I had been “glutened”.

I immediately use peppermint oil by rubbing it on my belly and am able to receive relief almost instantly.  I followed up with several additional doses and I was able to stop the gluten attack from spiraling into a week long attack that it normally would be.  The key for me is using it quickly!

I also use Peppermint Oil by rubbing it on my temples and forehead to help calm me and with the headache that I normally get when eating gluten.  I use Ginger Essential Oil for immediate nausea.  I also used Lavender Essential Oil for peace and calming.

I have also discovered that Apple Cider Vinegar REALLY helps me too!  I use that in combination with the essential oils.  Read this post for more details.

I hope this helps someone else who is in the same boat as me!  I carry these oils in my purse at all times. All of these essential oils should NOT be ingested.  When I use them I use them all topically and aromatically.

  1. Melissa,

    When you say you “used” DigestZen and Peppermint oils, how did you use them? Internally, topically, other???

    While I haven’t been “glutened” in a while, every time we eat out we are taking that chance. I would love to know how to use these oils in the event that it happens.


  2. I also use cardamom. It works great if you get nausea after being glutened. One drop under your tongue,my symptoms dissappear within a half hour.

  3. Thank you so much for posting this. You saved me last night. I got glutened because I had no will power and ate something that made me so sick. (I haven’t done this in a long time and don’t think will do it again)
    My stomach was hurting so bad.
    I used peppermint and eucalyptus essential oilS with olive oil on my stomach and I also drank 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar in 8 Oz of water. I also applied heat on my stomach and eventually I fell asleep. I woke up feeling much better this morning.. God bless you!
