Whenever I have an upset stomach of many kinds, I turn to peppermint tea. I have used it to alleviate nausea from the flu, stomach muscle cramps or spasms, and even uneasiness from anxiety. It can also relax a stressed out mind. This is one tea that I will recommended to most anyone. I actually use tea bags for peppermint tea, but this is how you could do loose leaf as well.
-2 cups boiling water
-a few peppermint leaves
Peppermint tea has a refreshing minty scent as well as flavour. It leaves a cool aftertaste similar to that of mint gum. The high menthol content is believed to be the soothing component. I find that it starts working quickly and effectively. Here are some other benefits to mint tea also:
-controls intestinal gas
-relieves symptoms of colds and allergies
-treats irritable bowl syndrome
