Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) by two doctors. I had extreme pain and bloating for 10 months and my quality of life was decreasing. The doctors said it was stressed induced and had me on medication which did nothing for my symptoms and made me feel drugged which in turn affected my job.

A friend suggested I try Peppermint oil. I rubbed it on my abdomen but that didn't really help - I needed to get to the source. The final remedy = swallowing 3 drops of Peppermint oil in a capsule 3x day. After 3 days I was pain free and still am. Remarkable! Now when I'm feeling stressed I supplement with "Digest & Clease", which contains Peppermint along with other beneficial oils.
