So I’ve been looking at many of the essential oils. One of the main ones to catch my eye is Peppermint.  Mostly because it addresses 2 issues I have, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Headaches.

Peppermint (scientific Mentha × piperita) is a hybrid plant combining Wintergreen and Spearmint.  It’s great for breathing and digestion. Germany’s Commission E has approved peppermint for use in Irritable Bowl Syndrome, inflammation of the respiratory tract mucosa, and inflammation of the oral mucosa. Though it has menthol naturally, this can irritate if used too near the eyes or respiratory tract. (Wikipedia)
