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.

A young mom expressed to me that her newborn of about 1 1/2 months was experiencing colic and she had tried everything to alleviate her pain.

I popped in for a visit and had blended one drop of Peppermint essential oil to 15 ml of pure extra virgin olive oil and suggested that she put a few drops in her hand, work it in 3x in a circular motion.

Then apply over the small part of baby's back and to her stomach and abdomen area and then hold her hands in place to warm the area.

A week later, she reported that it worked very well, within 5 minutes of each application. Happy mom and happy baby!
