It may antidote homeopathic remedies. It also helps people become clear headed and refreshes the spirit. Helpful for people who are unable to concentrate or who have mental fatigue. Said to relieve states of anger, hysteria and nervous trembling, excellent for depression.
On the body, it has a dual action....cooling when hot and warming when cold. Extremely important for its effect on the digestive system (some users recommend 1 drop on a sugar cube or on a teaspoon of honey).
Has a slightly anesthetic effect on stomach muscles. Good for travel sickness, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, colic, nausea and to keep drivers alert while on the road.
