The Amazing Peppermint


Peppermint

Traditionally drank to cure complaints of the stomach or nerves

These essential oil is nearly one third menthol which is why it invigorates, clears the head, stimulates and is soothing, refreshing and cooling.

In aromatherapy, it is excellent for headaches mental fatigue, muscular pain, varicose veins, subburn, insect bites, nausea, indigestion, PMT, or menopausal hot flushes

Never apply undiluted to skin

Peppermint oil is one of the most highly recommended natural cures for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) symptoms like indigestion, gas, bloating, pain, and irregularity. It’s also helpful for IBS because peppermint oil reduces stress, which reduces IBS symptoms naturally. IBS wreaks havoc on the gut during times of stress since the nervous system and digestive system work interchangeably together. Even just sniffing peppermint oil has been found to help symptoms, though ingesting the oil or capsules of the oil can help much more efficiently. Peppermint tea is another popular option, though not as strong as the oil itself. Just a tiny drop of the oil in some hot water with lemon and ginger (other digestive aids) is a powerful, natural therapy for an upset, IBS tummy.

Reduces Indigestion

Indigestion is also quickly silenced with some peppermint oil. The condition known as dyspepsia (minor indigestion) can occur due to someone containing inefficient enzymes required for digestion, or can occur if an especially acidic, or rich meal is eaten by sensitive individuals. Peppermint oil, along with caraway, fennel, and wormwood oil, have all been found to be three times more effective than a popular drug used to treat the disorder. Peppermint oil works by reducing spasms, gastric acid, and relieving pain associated with poor digestion. So before popping a piece of gum after your next meal, try drinking a little water diluted with some peppermint oil instead. Or, opt for a hot cup of peppermint oil tea with your meal as an even more effective method.
