It is indicated in case of tiredness , difficulty concentrating, headache, fever, digestive disorders, nausea.

Mint essential oil is rich in ketones , which is why it must be used carefully and above all in moderation . Wash hands thoroughly after use and do not touch eyes or mucous membranes.

Its menthol content applied to the skin has a stimulating effect on the nerve endings with a cold effect.

In case of headache we can apply two drops on the temples and forehead, well away from the eyes to be massaged gently and one drop on the back of the hand to breathe to send a message from the olfactory system to the central nervous system.

It helps to lighten the thoughts to relax the frontal and parietal part , and to decongest the respiratory tract through inhalation.

Consequently, it was experienced as with the integration of magnesium at daily dosages of 600mg it was possible to arrive at a reduction of painful episodes in the head.

It would be enough to massage and heat the liver to alleviate this symptomatology but in any case we can act on the digestive tract with an eupeptic and hepatoprotective anti-inflammatory such as turmeric .

Its active ingredient, curcumin , has an anti-inflammatory effect, aids digestion and reduces the incidence of headache episodes.

The recommended daily dosage for it to be effective is 800 mg divided into two doses.
