Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Smoothie (Dairy Free, Paleo)

by | Mar 18, 2019

DID YOU KNOW? Peppermint oil has been shown to be effective at naturally treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Studies show that peppermint oil reduces spasms in the colon, relaxes the muscles of your intestines, and can help to reduce bloating and gassiness.

To help relieve IBS symptoms, try:

  • Adding 1–2 drops of peppermint essential oil to your smoothie (check out my recipe below).
  • Adding 1–2 drops of peppermint essential oil into a glass of water or capsule and take before meals.
  • Applying 2–3 drops of peppermint essential oil (along with a carrier oil) topically to your abdomen.
