Peppermint oil

Does anyone take peppermint oil for flare ups?

  1. I do! I use peppermint essential oil from the brand young living. I apply it on my stomach topically. I swear by peppermint oil. It gives me so much relief. Have you tried it before? -Elizabeth (team member)

    1. I've tried peppermint soft gels that were supposed to stay intact through stomach acid, but I don't think mine ever did, and two things happened: 1) it gave me no relief, and 2) I burped it up for the rest of the day. Ever eat garlic or savory foods while burping up peppermint? They don't go together. Blech!
