Support digestion while calming tension in your belly.
Going out for a good time often involves eating. Sometimes a lot of eating, which means your “good time” might also involve undoing your belt a notch or two (or even some indigestion). The essential oils in this DIY digestive blend are popular for calming those feelings of bloat, belly tension, spasms, and even nausea.
Add 2 fl oz of jojoba oil to an empty 2 oz bottle with pop-top.
Add the essential oils into the jojoba.
Cap the bottle and shake gently to blend.
Apply topically to your stomach. If you're looking forward to a big meal, you can apply this blend before you eat to get a head start on preventing discomfort.
You may decide to substitute unscented lotion for the jojoba oil in this recipe - in that case, you will want 1 - 2 oz glass jar instead of the bottle with pop-top.
This blend was created at a 2% dilution. Please use caution if asthmatic due to the cardamom. We recommend a small patch test to ensure there is no skin sensitivity.
Kid safety: For kids between the ages of 5 and 10, we recommend 5 drops of sweet orange, 4 drops of Roman chamomile, and 1 drop of bergamot in 2 ounces of jojoba.
The ingredient with the shortest shelf life remaining becomes the shelf life of the entire blend.
