Bergamot mint is great to use for late dinners and midnight snacks. It is also good for those nights when you’re out late and have dinner at a 24 hour restaurant.

Never worry about digestion, even on nights when you tumble into bed right after a big snack. Use bergamot mint to make this Magic Belly Balm to help  digest food easily. Here’s a recipe that makes enough Belly Balm for you and your whole family.

Bergamot Mint’s Magic Belly Balm

  • 1 oz (28 g) beeswax
  • 2 oz (60 ml) jojoba 
  • 3 oz (84 g) coconut oil
  • 1 oz (28 g) shea butter
  • 42 drops Bergamot Mint essential oil
  • 14 drops Cardamom essential oil 
  • 21 drops Peppermint essential oil 


  1. Create a “stovetop double boiler” by placing a Pyrex measuring cup into a soup pot that’s ¼ full of water. Bring the water to a gentle boil.
  2. Put the beeswax in the Pyrex and melt.
  3. Add the jojoba and coconut oil and remelt.
  4. Add the shea butter and melt, stirring gently with a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon. As soon as the shea butter is melted, remove the blend from heat.
  5. Add the essential oils, stirring gently.
  6. Pour your blend into two 4 oz (120 ml) glass jars. Give it about 20 minutes to solidify.

Massage your Bergamot Mint Belly Balm into your belly and low back when you feel overly full or have an upset stomach.

This recipe makes 7 oz (210 ml) . . . and that’s a lot of Belly Balm! You can use seven 1 oz (30 ml) jars and give some away as gifts!

If you’d rather use a belly oil than a rich balm, here’s a recipe from The Aromahead Blog for Belly Spasm Oil. It’s just as effective, but has a different texture.
