My husband suffers from Diverticulosis. When it flares up we have been using peppermint oil to ease the pain and cramping. Several drops of the peppermint oil rubbed on his abdomen where the pain is most intense, followed by a hot compress on the same area, has relieved these symptoms. Prior to using essential oils, my husband was taking a 10 day course of antibiotics every time he had an episode. We have been able to avoid antibiotics for this condition now for the last 5 months. We have experienced the same wonderful results each time we have used the peppermint in this way.
