The peppermint oil I get is from Whole Foods and the brand is Now Essential Oils. It doesn’t matter what brand you get, it just has to be 100% pure peppermint oil, and you can get it at most places.
I take it as needed, but my doctor said I could take it before meals. He also said to avoid extremely hot and cold food/beverages as these can aggravate the spasms.
I keep a bottle at work, and a bottle at home. I also bought a bag of Bracs peppermints and keep a few with me for when I am out and have a small flair up. My doctor said those are the better ones to get since they are made with peppermint oil. Fortunately, I haven’t had any major issues while being out, but if I am going over a friend or family members house for awhile I do bring the bottle with me.
