    thanks everyone. i bought it and tried it...don't know if it really works yet. tastes yucky (like licorice...and i HATE licorice!) but i added some honey and it kinda mellowed it out a bit.

    i can't use peppermint unfortunately as i have HORRENDOUS acid reflux/hiatal hernia which gets set off by mint. haven't tried the cumin yet, i suspect it will do the same thing *sigh*.

    Hi,

    sorry to answer so late, I was on a very nice wedding this weekend...
    yes, it's the cumin you can buy for cooking, I just use it as tea.. Over here you get ready made fennel-cumin-pepermint mixtures for tea, which is quite convenient. But once I found out that it's the exact same thing than cooking-cumin I stopped buying it and made the mixtue myself..
    Good luck...

    thanks i will def. try it (just gotta wait for hubby to get paid,lol). now, for cumin...is this the cumin you buy in the store and use for cooking? sorry if that sounds dumb...i will try anything @this point. i weigh 89 lbs but still look 5 months pregnant 1/2 the time grrrrrrrrrr.

    thanks...my son is HUGE for a 7 month old. doesn't take after his mommy that's for sure.

    Hi,

    yes, as cumin is good against bloating I use it a lot in tea. I don't like the taste but it helps me. It doesn't affect my IC and I never read in any book about IC or internet forum (and I'm online a lot :-)) ) that either of these cause problems.

    Hope you feel better soon...your son is very cute, congratulations..:-))

    Hi,

    I never heard of anybody having problems with fennel...I use fennel with peppermint and cumin which works quit well......
