Hello and welcome to HelingWell,
I am finding the same thing as bittersweet: Do not administer peppermint oil to patients with gastroesophageal reflux or active
gastric ulcers because the oil decreases esophageal sphincter pressure.
However I am finding articles that are in favor of using peppermenit. A small amount mixed in water makes the muscles of the esophagus contract normally again. I would suggest you discuss these findings with your GI physician.
Do stick with us as we love to have new members.
