Essential Oils for Digestion

essential oils for digestionThere are several essential oils for digestion and tummy trouble relief. Below is a simple and helpful blend that smells great!

Essential oils for digestion offer a gentle, natural remedy for belly aches and pains. This blend is one of my favorites. You can use it after each meal, save it for when you know you’ll be eating something that might upset your stomach, or use it when you’re trying a brand new exciting dish.

For Digestive Support

4 drops Cardamom essential oil or CO2 extract (Ellettaria cardamomum)
5 drops Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile)
3 drops Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
3 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita)

Blend essential oils in 1 oz of unscented cream or jojoba oil. Massage into abdomen after each meal. This blend of oils can also be used in an inhaler for nausea or car sickness.

For nausea would this blend be ok for a pregnant woman suffering horrible ‘morning’ sickness?

This blend is too strong for use during pregnancy. Pregnant women often use an unscented cream with just 3 drops of Roman chamomile and 1 drop of peppermint, that can really help. 🙂

Instead of Cardamon can I use Fennel?

2-3 drops of fennel would work really well!

Beautiful recipe. I must try this blend. We have used fennel, orange, a hint of sage in blend for digestion that has worked quite well.
