Isn’t having an upset stomach just the worst? It can come out of nowhere and just knock you down for a day or even longer. And as someone particularly fond of food, I really dislike losing my appetite! One of the things my family uses when we are feeling “off” with our digestive system is to reach for Young Living’s DiGize essential oil blend. This blend contains Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Anise, Patchouli and Lemongrass. For me, it promotes wellness support during those upset moments better than anything else I’ve tried. But standing by all my oils and diluting out a dose of DiGize can feel a bit taxing when all you want to do is lay down somewhere, which is why I created this tummy cream to reach for when I need it.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/3 cup shea butter
- 1/4 cup almond oil
- 20 drops DiGize essential oil blend
- 5 drops Peppermint essential oil (optional, but peppermint is great for upset stomachs and I think it helps improve the smell!)
To make this soothing tummy cream, start by melting the coconut oil and the shea butter together over medium-low heat on the stove. Once this has completely melted, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for 5 minutes before adding the almong oil. Mix those ingredients all together with a spoon, and then allow to sit for an additional 10 minutes, at which point you add your essential oils, give it a stir, and then transfer the oils to a glass bowl and put in the refrigerator for an hour.
After an hour has passed, remove the blend which should appear solid, and taking a hand mixer, mix it all together until the consistency is creamy. You are all set! I recommend storing the product in the fridge for best results.
If you are new to Young Living and would like to try DiGize and/or Peppermint essential oil, I’d love to help connect you! You can sign up directly for a retail membership if you only want to purchase them, or you can sign up as a wholesale customer if you’d like to try our premium starter kit (it comes with our 11 most loved oils, including DiGize and Peppermint, as well as a diffuser and other goodies). I also place an order once a month and would be happy to include you in it if you’d like to try either or both oils at the wholesale price.
