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.

My daughter is expecting her 3rd child in Dec. 2010. She has had an awful time with morning sickness (nausea) and heartburn. She was using about a bottle of Malox per week.

It can be very unpleasant to deal with, especially when it stops a mom-to-be from being able to eat enough or if it lasts for months on end.
She started using a drop of Peppermint on her tongue as needed for the nausea. It has disappeared.

She also uses it on her temples at the beginning of a headache and it has taken away the headache and kept it from turning into a migraine. Peppermint is great for relieving pain.

She no longer needs Malox. Her heartburn and nausea are gone and she is feeling better.
