I notice that the older I get the more my digestive processes (among many other things) change.  Last night I had some delicious Chinese food but a little while after dinner, I was miserable. The garlic and onions in the food was killing me. I usually drink peppermint tea when I have indigestion but this seemed worst than usual so I wanted a little something extra.

I made my peppermint tea and then I added a drop of ginger essential oil. My husband likes to eat crystallized ginger which is a candy and a little too sweet for me. The ginger essential oil in my tea was much better to me. When I had finished the cup (and after an unladylike loud burp) my stomach felt much better.  The next time you have indigestion, try a drop of ginger  essential oil  in your peppermint tea. This is a good treatment for those youngsters who ate too much Halloween candy too.
