Tummy Trouble – the first essential oil blend I made for baby

You can read more here about how and why I started exploring essential oils, and how the first oils I bought were the Digestive Blend and Lavender to help with Ellie’s reflux as a newborn. I can’t keep track of how many times I’ve blended these oils in the last year and a half. It’s the only blend I have in a BIG roller bottle, and I swipe it on E’s torso at any sign of tummy discomfort (including gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea…)

Ellie came up to me a couple different times yesterday afternoon saying “poo-poo” and making an uncomfortable face. I could tell she didn’t have a poopy diaper so I figured she was telling me that she wanted to go but couldn’t. A couple hours later and she still hadn’t so I asked her to pull up her shirt and I rolled the essential oils on her tummy in a circular motion a few times. I left the room to get her bedroom and jammies ready. When I came back into the living room no more than 2 minutes later, I was met by a happy baby with a FULL diaper. I wouldn’t be turning this story into a blog post if it hadn’t happened like this more than a couple times. It still amazes me.


Mix in a glass roller bottle:
* 15 drops Digestive Blend
* 15 drops Lavender
* Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil

Let me know how it works for you!!
