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.

When my family has stomach issues, we always reach for the Peppermint oil.

Upset stomach, indigestion, over-indulged in a meal....rub a few drops over the stomach and abdomen areas. Same for gas. In extreme discomfort, I have even been known to put a drop or two under my tongue. Sublingual application is a great way to get it into my system quickly.

Every time one of my sons has diarrhea, it's Peppermint to the rescue! It also gets applied to the stomach/abdomen area, as well as the soles of the feet. I have seen immediate results with even one application.

Please be aware, Peppermint can be strong for some users. If it is applied neat and there is a reaction or burning of the skin, it can be diluted with any carrier oil (V-6, almond oil, even olive oil) and the burning sensation should go away. Do not use water to dilute it, because it will only make the sensation more intense.

Happy oiling!
