What is Peppermint Oil?
Peppermint oil is extracted from the stem, leaves, and flowers of the peppermint plant. The mint is known for its calming and cooling effects which can be used as a natural remedy for digestive problems such as flatulence, abdominal pain, and IBS.
Peppermint is indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, with the medicinal use of peppermint oil dating back to the eighteenth century! Greek mythology even mentions peppermint, highlighting the importance of the herb.
Why is Peppermint Oil so Popular?
Peppermint oil has a long history of being used alongside medicine for digestive disorders. As peppermint oil is a natural remedy, you can feel safe and confident knowing exactly what you are putting in your body.
The popularity of peppermint oil is down to its effectiveness as it can ease your tummy trouble in just a couple of hours. It is completely safe and natural and might be for you if you suffer with any of these digestive issues:
- Abdominal pain
- Trapped wind
- Symptoms of IBS
How Does Peppermint Oil Work?
Peppermint oil, as an antispasmodic, is great in reducing tummy trouble as it works by relaxing the muscle of the bowel wall. This can help relive stomach cramps and bloating, as well as symptoms associated with IBS.
