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.

In her later years my mother had digestive challenges. Severe digestive challenges. She was prescribed pills to ease the pain, but she would be walking around for 20 - 30 minutes after a meal, stooped over holding her stomach with abdominal cramps. It was agonizing to watch. My sister, who had been the secretary to the Dean of Medicine and access to the 'best' said nothing else could be done. The only saving grace was Mom had Alzheimer's disease and did not remember the pain from one meal to another.

I put a couple of drops of Peppermint in about less than 1/4 cup of water and asked Mom to drink it. She said she couldn't. I insisted she try, just a bit. She got it down. I then refilled the glass with another tiny bit of water to catch the oil still in the glass. I gave that glass to her in about 2 minutes. She continued to walk. In about 2 more minutes, she started to straighten her posture - still walking holding her tummy. In another minute or two, there was a couple of very loud belches - hugely large belches, and then she was fine. The Peppermint treatment worked every time.
