    That got me thinking...I never used it topically only orally so always watch out for whatever else is in the brand you use....when I do make herbal topical treatments I think it can be safer to make your own...or buy from copany that you trust...the IBS one is what I take orally so if she makes a topical one I suspect it won't have anything bad in it but I haven't checked myself yet.

    I used to rub peppermint oil on my forehead for my migraines. Helped to ease the tension. Don't see why it wouldn't work, might burn though, I put Bengay on my stomache once for cramps....OUCH!!! It burned so bad, and then when you try to wash it off, it just keeps getting hotter.

    I take peppermint oil every single day and if anything I am sure it helps. Never bothered me ....but it does work best to take significantly before you eat which can be a bit bothersome at times.

    started a topic Peppermint Oil

    Peppermint Oil

    A friend of mine with IBS told me that she rubs pure peppermint oil on her stomach to help with the spasms.

    I'm in the midst of a flare, and today is particularly rough. I'm seeing the Uro tomorrow for the first time here (relocated here last year), but if this is helpful, would love to get some today.

    Has anyone used this? I'm afraid to excarbate the pain any if this is a bad treatment for IC.

    Thanks for any help. I really appreciate it. Right now I'm on Pyridium Plus and Hydrocodone.
Working...
