    Benefits of Peppermint Oil
    According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, several studies suggest that enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules -- which allow the oil to pass through the stomach so it can dissolve in the intestines -- may help relieve common symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome such as abdominal pain, bloating, and gas. Non-enteric coated forms of peppermint oil, however, actually may cause or worsen heartburn and nausea.
    Preliminary studies also suggest that dietary supplements containing a combination of peppermint oil and caraway oil may help relieve indigestion.
    According to the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database, which rates effectiveness of natural remedies based on scientific evidence, peppermint oil is possibly effective for:
            Energy
            Mental alertiness
            Heartburn
            Irritable bowel syndrome
            Tension headaches
            Relaxing the colon during barium enemas or radiologic procedures
    The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates peppermint oil aspossibly ineffective for nausea following surgery, and concludes there is insufficient evidence to rate its effectiveness for conditions such as:
            Shingles
            Dental plaque
            Itchy skin
            Urinary tract infections
            Morning sickness
            Nausea and vomiting
            Painful menstrual periods
            Bacteria overgrowth in the intestines
            Lung infections
            Spasms of the stomach and gallbladder
            Cough and symptoms of cold
            Inflammation of mouth and respiratory tract lining
            Muscle or nerve pain
