Much like ginger, peppermint has been studied for its effect on relieving symptoms associated with digestive upset. It is believed to help comfort and soothe muscles in the intestine which constrict and spasm when upset. Peppermint is often used as a natural treatment for those suffering from IBS symptoms, has shown promise in treating colic, helping wind to pass through the system and for freshening breath. On top of its digestive Wellness properties, peppermint may also help act in easing sinus pain, tension headaches and lessening asthma related symptoms. Its antibacterial and antiseptic properties soothes skin, cools inflammation and helps get rid of lice and dandruff. We think peppermint's so nice we've used it twice in our Digest Best and our Skin Soothe biscuits.
Tip of the week
REPEL BUGS NATURALLY... With the summer months now upon us, bugs and ticks are out in full force and can prove to be a menace to all. Did you know that Geranium Essential Oil can be used as a natural bug repellent? We place 3 drops of oil on the inside of our dog's collar and not only does he smell divine, but we find that it really does keep the bugs away. *Please note that essential oil in full concentration can be a skin irritant so it should never go directly on skin. If your dog does not have a thick coat of fur, you can place 3 drops of geranium essential oil in 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil and mix together. You can use the oil directly on the coat, particularly around the neck and where the tail meets the spine. Consider using it on yourself as well! We love local British brands Tisserand (www.tisserand.com) & Baldwins (www.baldwins.co.uk) for essential oils as their products are pure and cruelty-free!
