Peppermint oil is renowned for its antispasmodic properties, containing active compounds that work by relaxing gastrointestinal smooth muscles, providing relief from various types of spasms and cramps in the body.

Its ability to target and soothe muscle contractions makes it particularly beneficial for individuals experiencing abdominal cramps and those seeking relief from symptoms of conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Potential Side Effects of Peppermint Oil

Though rare, like with any medicine, taking peppermint oil can cause certain side effects. These include: 

  • Indigestion
  • Heartburn
