Use it for: Sore throat, IBS, heartburn
There's a reason your mom used to hand you a warm cup of peppermint tea to help soothe your sore throat or upset stomach. Research shows that peppermint can help soothe symptoms of common illnesses, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and heartburn. Applying peppermint oil to your forehead can also help relieve tension headaches. It's not a miracle worker, but if you enjoy mint, the comfort factor alone makes this one worth a shot.
Is it safe? Yes. While the research is inconclusive for many uses, there aren't really any side effects and most people find it delicious.
