Practical Use of the First Aid Kit – Peppermint

Extracted from Emergency / Intensive Aromatic Care by Dr. Daniel Penoel, MD

For indigestion, nausea, motion sickness and even gastro-intestinal cramps, a trace of the essential oil on the tongue (or on a sugar cube or in honey) provides rapid relief in most cases.

For headaches, it can be applied on the temples, the forehead and the nape of the neck, possibly with lavender

For hiccups, a trace of essential oil placed on the finger and applied on both sides of the fifth cervical vertebra, will create a reflex that stops the hiccups.
