  • Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding women who apply peppermint oil on their skin have less cracked skin and pain in the nipple area.
  • Heartburn (dyspepsia): Taking peppermint oil by mouth together with caraway oil seems to reduce feelings of fullness and stomach spasms. A specific combination product containing peppermint (Iberogast, Medical Futures, Inc) also seems to improve symptoms of heartburn, including severity of acid reflux, stomach pain, cramping, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Spasms caused by endoscopy: peppermint oil can reduce pain and spasms in people undergoing endoscopy, a procedure used to see within the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Migraine headache: Applying a peppermint diluted to the skin at the start of a migraine and again 30 minutes later increases the percentage of patients who experience headache resolution.
  • Tension headache:  Applying peppermint oil to the skin helps relieve tension headaches.

APPLIED TO THE SKIN: For tension headaches: 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution applied across the forehead and temples, repeated after 15 and 30 minutes, has been used.

  • Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It is LIKELY SAFE to take peppermint in amounts normally found in food during pregnancy and breast-feeding. However, not enough is known about the safety of taking larger amounts used for medicine. It’s best not to take these larger amounts if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
