Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I had some really bad cramps today. This made it hard for me to move because it hurt so much. I found a method that worked. It took my cramps away for the entire day!

I needed to go out to ride my bike to go job hunting. I wouldn't have been able to if it weren't for these two essential oils, Lavender and Peppermint.

This is my method:

I put two drops of Lavender essential oil in my hand, and then I apply it to my lower abdomen, wiping my hand across my lower abdomen so it seeps in. Then I put one drop of Peppermint essential oil in my hand and also apply it to my lower abdomen, wiping my hand across my lower abdomen so it seeps in as well. Then I am good to go!

If I need to go outside, I make sure that I keep my lower abdomen covered because Lavender essential oil can cause some photosensitivity. Otherwise, I just wait 12 hours before going outside.

I hope this testimonial is helpful to someone out there.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: menstrual-cramps — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: menstrual-cramps — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
3.Associated topics: menstrual-cramps — "[T]he level and duration of menstrual pain and the amount of menstrual bleeding were significantly lower in the aromatherapy group than in the placebo group. These results suggest that aromatherapy is effective in alleviating menstrual pain, its duration, and excessive menstrual bleeding. Aromatherapy can be provided as a nonpharmacological pain relief measure and as a part of nursing care given to girls suffering of dysmenorrhea or excessive menstrual bleeding."Link
4.Associated topics: photosensitive — "Topical high-concentration L-menthol is the only established human experimental pain model to study mechanisms underlying cold hyperalgesia. We aimed at investigating the combinatorial effect of cold stimuli and topical L-menthol on cold pain and secondary mechanical hyperalgesia. Cold detection threshold and cold pain threshold (CPT) increased after L-menthol and remained high after the cold rekindling cycles.... Skin blood flow increased after L-menthol and stayed stable after cold cycles. Repeated application of cold on skin treated by L-menthol facilitated and prolonged L-menthol-induced cold pain and hyperalgesia."Link
