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.

I suffered for about 3 or 4 months with nightly heartburn and occassional nausea. I think I have been developing acid reflux for awhile now. I was taking an OTC acid reducer every night and got to thinking there had to be a better way to treat my symptoms!

After researching a bit with the oils, I put two drops of Peppermint oil in a small glass with ice water and drank it. I'd refill the glass a little, swirl it and drink a couple more times to make sure I got all the oil down. It likes to stick to the glass!

After about 20 minutes or so I noticed my heartburn was lessening. I continued drinking 2 drops of Peppermint oil every day for about 3 days and my symptoms are gone. Every now and then they come back a little and I drink 2 more drops of Peppermint oil.

I am feeling great and haven't had to take the OTC acid reducer for about a month now! Yay! And a few nights ago I woke up feeling nauseous. I immediately got up and drank 2 drops of Peppermint oil in cool water and rubbed a drop of Lavender in my belly button and around on my stomach. Within 5 minutes I felt fine and went back to sleep. No sickness the next day either.
