Bloating? Digestive Problems? IBS? You may want to consider this solution…Jul 31, 2020
Boasting a host of benefits from aiding Stomach disorders and Indigestion to Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and cramps, this essential oil is also a great detoxifier!
In fact, the compounds of peppermint oil reduce spasms of the colon and intestinal tract, and, due to the presence of thymol and eugenol, balance oral and intestinal flora, thereby reducing fermentation of undigested food.
The antispasmodic action that makes peppermint oil useful in soothing menstrual cramps has also proven to effectively treat IBS. In a 1996 German double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 45 subjects with IBS were treated with a combination of peppermint and caraway oils (90 mg to 50 mg) given as enteric-coated capsules. IBS Pain symptoms, which were reported as being moderate to severe, significantly improved in 89.5% of the test group*
Peppermint essential oil is a wonderful natural remedy and can be used in several ways, including:
1. Diffuse peppermint oil overnight to ease discomfort and help you breathe easier. You can do this with a diffuser and a small amount of essential oil.
2. Apply 3 – 5 drops per 1 Tablespoon organic unrefined almond oil, olive oil or your favourite unrefined oil that does not have a strong scent. This mixture can be smoothed over your skin to relieve headaches and itchy skin. Massage it over your lower abdomen to ease digestive distress, on your lower back to relieve back pain or all over to stimulate lymph flow.
So, next time you want to ease your digestive distress, reach for peppermint – you’ll be giving your body a natural remedy that has withstood the test of time.
