Gallstones are small, hard deposits that can form in the gallbladder, a small organ that lies under the liver in the upper right side of the abdomen.  While the majority of individuals may be unaware of their presence, in certain instances, gallstones can cause inflammation in the gallbladder, resulting in pain, infection, or other complications. Common symptoms include nausea, abdominal discomfort after eating a meal, and gas.

Gallstones are prevalent in over 20 million Americans, with approximately 1 million diagnosed each year.  Surprisingly, only about 3% of the population experiences symptoms during the course of the year, and fewer than one-half of them have recurring symptoms.

Gallstones are a common health concern, especially among women. Studies have shown that women are much more likely to develop gallstones than men, with nearly 25% of women in the United States developing them by the age of 60, and up to 50% by the age of 75. This increased risk in women may be attributed to the stimulating effect of estrogen on the liver, which leads to more cholesterol being removed from the blood and diverted into the bile.

Consuming a diet high in greasy, fatty, fried foods, and refined sugars can be hard on the gallbladder. When the gallbladder tries to absorb these fats, the high content of sugars and grease prohibit the secretion of bile. The accumulation of excess bile in the gallbladder disrupts the normal digestive process, leading to various complications. One such complication is the formation of gallstones, which are cholesterol build-ups in the bile ducts. To minimize the risk of developing gallstones, it is important to maintain a healthy diet that is low in unhealthy fats and sugars.

Studies have also determined that the number of calories a person consumes may be another factor that affects the risk of developing gallstones. Overweight people tend to develop more gallstones than individuals at a healthy weight. Additionally, quick changes in body weight can also increase the risk of gallstones. When someone gains or loses a significant amount of weight in a short period of time, it can lead to the formation of gallstones.

Formula GB™ oil is a synergistic blend of eight essential oils to promote the relief of gallbladder pain.  Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts full of phytochemicals that provide many health benefits.  The following essential oils are present in this product:

Castor oil has a wide range of diverse applications in health and wellness. Observational studies have indicated that topical application of ricinoleic acid (RA), the main component of this oil, promotes remarkable analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.  To enhance absorption through the skin, castor oil is commonly used in combination with a hot water bottle. The application of heat in the gallbladder allows the bile ducts to expand and relieve pressure.

Sweet Marjoram oil is known to promote the reduction of pain. The main components of marjoram oil are sabinene, alpha-terpinene, gamma terpinene, cymene, terpinolene, linalool, sabinene hydrate, linalyl acetate, terpineol, and gamma terpineol.  Sweet Marjoram oil is effective against many pains, including ones that are connected to headaches, muscle strains, inflammation, and many more.  This oil is also known to support decreased muscle spasms, especially spasms in the digestive tract. 

Studies have found that sweet basil oil promotes anti-inflammatory effects, particularly effective against inflammation of adipose tissue (adipocyte). The major compounds of sweet basil oil are methyl cinnamate, linalool, beta-elemene, and camphor.

Peppermint oil has been used for decades as an agent for gastrointestinal ailments. With its numerous mechanisms of action, including smooth muscle relaxation, visceral sensitivity modulation, and anti-inflammatory activity, this oil has been found to have a positive impact on the physiology of various organs in the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, gallbladder, and colon. The main constituents of this oil are menthol and menthone.

Lavender oil has shown to have significant anti-inflammatory properties, commonly used in cases of dermatitis and eczema. Phytochemical analysis shows that lavender oil contains linalool, linalyl acetate, 8-cineole-ocimene, terpinen-4-ol, and camphor as its main components.

Ginger oil has been used medicinally for centuries as an anti-inflammatory agent.  In current applications, the attention has focused on the cyclooxygenase (COX)-inhibiting effects of gingerols, phenolic compounds that are responsible for ginger’s pungent taste, and its potential use in several inflammatory disorders. 

Dandelion oil has a long history of use in alternative medicine for its potential benefits in promoting liver health. Recent animal studies have shown promising results, suggesting that dandelion oil could be an effective agent for chronic liver disease. The active constituents of dandelion are mainly sesquiterpene lactones, triterpenes, and sterols (taraxasterol, taraxerol, cycloartenol, beta-sitosterol, and stigmasterol).

Roman Chamomile oil comes from one of the oldest, most widely used and well documented medicinal plants in the world, chamomile, and has been recommended for a variety of healing applications. The flowers of chamomile contain 1 to 2% volatile oils including matricin, alpha-bisabolol, and alpha-bisabolol oxides A & B.  Matricin is usually converted to chamazulene and other flavonoids which possess anti-inflammatory and antiphlogistic (alleviation of inflammation) properties. Studies have demonstrated that chamomile flavonoids and essential oils are able to penetrate below the skin surface, into the deeper layers of the skin, making chamomile an effective topical agent.
