What is DigestZen Digestive Blend?

doTERRA DigestZen is one of doTERRA’s most popular essential oil blends. It’s one of our Top 10 essential oils, and is featured in many of our essential oil starter kits.

In Canada, it is known as ZenGest.

DigestZen (or ZenGest) contains a blend of essential oils which are targeted to support your digestive system. It can be used topically, aromatically, or internally for digestive health benefits.

It’s perfect to have on hand as a natural way to handle occasional upset stomachs. Its calming aroma helps to relieve those queasy feelings.

How to use DigestZen Digestive Blend

DigestZen Recipes

Here are some recipes for you to try with your DigestZen essential oil:

DigestZen Rollerbottle Recipes

Rollerbottle recipes are a convenient way to apply DigestZen! You’ll need a 10 ml empty roller bottle, fractionated coconut oil, and the essential oils for each recipe.

Add the essential oils to your empty roller bottle, top with fractionated coconut oil, and give it a shake!

To make it easier to fill roller bottles, I like to use a pump in my fractionated coconut oil bottle.

I also recommend labelling your roller bottles, because as much as you think you will remember what’s in them and what they are for, I promise you, you won’t. 😉

I like to use my label maker to label my roller bottles.

Additional Precautions for DigestZen Essential Oil

Although doTERRA essential oils are 100% pure and natural, it’s still wise to take precautions when using them. Essential oils are extremely potent (1 drop of peppermint oil is the equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea), so they should be treated with respect.

Always order your essential oils directly from doTERRA or through a trusted Wellness Advocate like myself. Never order doTERRA essential oils through Amazon, eBay, Walmart, or any third party sellers. This is because these are often fake (it’s easy to refill an empty essential oil bottle and replace with a new cap, making it appear legitimate).

Here are some other things to consider when using DigestZen:

  • possible skin sensitivity if you have sensitive skin
  • avoid sensitive areas such as eyes and inner ears
  • keep out of reach of children
  • always dilute before applying topically, using doTERRA fractionated coconut oil

DigestZen Products

doTERRA’s DigestZen line contains several products! In addition to the straight-up DigestZen essential oil, you’ll find many other products to help support your digestion.

DigestZen 15 ml

DigestZen is a wonderful companion to aid in the digestion of food, soothe occasional upset stomachs, and reduce uncomfortable gas when used internally.

DigestZen Touch

DigestZen Touch has all the same benefits of DigestZen 15 ml, but it is conveniently pre-diluted in a 10 ml rollerbottle in a base of fractionated coconut oil. This is a much cleaner and easier way to apply DigestZen topically.

DigestZen Softgels

doTERRA DigestZen Softgels are a convenient and easy way to obtain the benefits of the proprietary DigestZen essential oil blend. Each vegetarian softgel contains 120 mg of DigestZen essential oil, making it a simple way to access the stomach-soothing benefits of DigestZen oil.


If you have family members who don’t like to swallow capsules, you’ll love these chewable tablets. Now this incredibly effective blend is available in a convenient chewable tablet.

DigestTab combines calcium carbonate and the DigestZen oil blend into one tablet, which helps provide relief from tummy troubles.

Take these tablets on the road with you to help mitigate motion sickness.

DigestZen Terrazyme

DigestZen TerraZyme is a proprietary blend of active whole-food enymes and supporting cofactors that are often deficient in cooked, processed, and preservative-laden foods.

The powerful combination of digestive enzymes found in DigestZen TerraZyme support the body’s constant production of enzymes critical for healthy biochemical functions, including healthy digestion of food nutrients and cellular metabolism of nutrients to energy.

TerraZyme includes a variety of whole-food enzymes that help with the digestion of proteins, fats, complex carbohydrates, sugars, and fiber.

GX Assist

GX Assist is formulated to be used for 10 days as a preparatory cleansing step before using PB Assist+ Probiotic Defense Formula.

PB Assist

PB Assist is doTERRA’s Probiotic Defense Formula. It delivers six billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that encourage friendly bacterial growth. The timed-release double-capsule delivery system protects the sensitive probiotic cultures from stomach acid, meaning PB Assist+ safely and effectively delivers the well-recognized digestive and immune benefits of probiotics.

Zendocrine Detoxification Complex

doTERRA Zendocrine Detoxification Complex is a proprietary blend of whole-food extracts in a patented enzyme delivery system that supports healthy cleansing and filtering functions of the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin.

How to Purchase DigestZen

I only use and recommend doTERRA essential oils. I have been using doTERRA for 9 years and they have brought such wonderful benefits to my family. You can purchase doTERRA essential oils at wholesale price, like I do. Never pay retail for essential oils! All you need is a wholesale account. You don’t have to sell essential oils to open a doTERRA wholesale account. It works like a Costco membership, where you pay a membership fee to get access to wholesale pricing, or you can get a free membership when you begin with a starter kit.

Learn more about how to open your own doTERRA wholesale account.

You don’t have to be local to me to purchase DigestZen essential oil! doTERRA essential oils ship right to your door in most countries of the world!

There are 3 ways you can purchase DigestZen Essential Oil:


With retail, you pay full price, and don’t receive any additional benefits (such as access to our private Facebook group for continuing support & education)


When you purchase wholesale, you pay a membership fee of $35 USD/ $42 CND and receive 25% off the retail price.

As Part of a Starter Kit

When you purchase with an essential oil starter kit, you get your oils at a discounted price and your membership fee is waived.

Each of these kits contains DigestZen oil! In the Natural Solutions Kit, you’ll also find some of our other DigestZen products, such as TerraZyme (digestive enzymes) and PB Assist (probiotic).
