Roman Chamomile essential oil understands how miserable belly cramps can be.
Even if you experience them each month, their regularity doesn’t make them any easier.
Roman Chamomile wants to help! It’s one of the most well-known essential oils for cramps. In fact, using Roman Chamomile for belly pain helped me realize that I wanted to dedicate my life to studying and teaching about Aromatherapy.
Here’s what happened . . . One day, I had a lot of tension in my belly, and it was making me very uncomfortable and kind of ruining my day. But I’d recently gotten a new bottle of Roman Chamomile essential oil. I put one drop in some jojoba and rubbed it into my belly and low back. The tension seemed to just dissolve.
I can remember looking at the little bottle in my hand and realizing how much potential essential oils had that I wasn’t even aware of. It was the first step of a beautiful journey for me!

Peppermint essential oil is an excellent choice for energy, mental sharpness, concentration, inspiration, and feeling positive. Black Spruce is a beautiful partner for Peppermint. It has a “deep evergreen forest” aroma that is a favorite for many people. Black Spruce is good at stirring up stuck energy, reducing fatigue, and helping you feel restored. […]
One of my favorite natural carrier butters to use in body butter recipes for healing massage is kombo butter. Kombo butter has a deep reddish-brown color, and a distinctive nutty, earthy aroma. Its consistency is thick and oily, with granule-like bits throughout that melt when it’s warmed. (You can see the texture in this picture of kombo butter from Aromatics International.) It comes from West Central Africa, and is often called “African Nutmeg.” It’s good at soothing aching joints and sore muscles thanks to its high content of natural acids that reduce inflammation. I have known people who were so helped by this butter that they refused to leave home without their kombo blend! I’d like to share a recipe that might just become a “don’t leave home without it” blend for you. […]
