Traveling is one way that I love to relax. I love exploring new places, and my girls enjoy learning while having fun. And yes, the best life teacher is always through experience.
One of the things I don’t really like about traveling is when I get car sick. You might think after all these years of traveling and seeing places in a car that I’m used to it. Nope. Sorry to disappoint you (mostly myself, really). I’m still not used to it! Nothing’s worse than when my tummy starts acting up and having digestive problems. What a nightmare!
Essential oils are great travel companions. Not only are they small and handy, but they are also versatile. They’re way better than store-bought products as these are all-natural with no chemicals added. With essential oils, you’ll know you’re on the safe side. I made this roll-on essential oil recipe for digestive issues–perfect for when you’re traveling and your digestive system is off.
What I Love About This Recipe Made With Essential Oils for Digestion
Hi! Katie here, certified aromatherapist and creator of our Essential Oil Recipe Box, which includes this recipe this month.
I love this roll on for on-the-go digestion support.
What’s in This Recipe
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated Coconut Oil is used to dilute the essential oils in this recipe, making sure they’re safe to apply on your skin. If you are allergic to coconut oil, you can use other carrier oils.
Cardamom Essential Oil
Cardamom Essential Oil is known as one of the best oils for digestive problems. It soothes nausea and upset stomach.
Lavender Bulgaria Essential Oil
Lavender provides calm and relieves stress. It also helps in soothing nausea and upset stomach.
