Ajwain (Ajowan or Carum Copticum) extract: 0.200 gms.

Pudina (Mint) extract: 0.050 gms.

Clove oil: 0.002 ml.

Camphor: 0.400 gms.

Eucalyptus Oil: to make 1 ml.

Ajowan (Ajwain) is a very effective herb for relieving indigestion flatulence, and spasmodic disorders.

Mint extracts have excellent carminative and digestive properties. They provide quick natural relief from stomachache, gas and indigestion without any side effects.

Camphor, in small doses camphor warms the stomach, stimulates secretion, increases peristalsis, and expels flatus.

Clove oil stimulates peristalsis.

When combined in predetermined proportions, they present a POWERFUL concoction that works wonders on stomach health.

How it works

A few drops of Amritdhara help normalize the peristaltic movements - a major cause of stomach discomfort. It is effective in healing stomach bloating and stomach heaviness caused by excessive gas formation.

Directions for use:

For stomach pains, stomach gas or indigestion, add 3-4 drops of herbal Amritdhara to lukewarm water and drink. May be taken thrice a day or even hourly in case of acute cases.

For greater effect, the Amritdhara drops may be added to a decoction of fennel seeds (saunf).

Soon after intake, you should experience a relief in symptoms such as an urge to release stomach gas, or a subsiding of stomach pains and abdominal bloating.

The most important benefit is the absence of any side effect when taken in recommended dosage. It should not effect the body adversely. However, in the extreme unlikely event of an undesired effect, please discontinue use.

I'm not too big into growing many herbs,
but I do know that the peppermint one is good
for your tummy *I think so anyways*....

And vinegar is good for things like "GERD"....
Nutrilizes the acid in your tummy....

Comfry or Forest Tengu might be able to lend a hand.....

Ok I am not real familiar with the use of oils and their strength or dose usage, But I can give a couple of simple teas you make for digestive type problems and also I will post another more involved formula for long term use.

Cinnamon Tea(good for relieving nausea & upset stomach)

1 TBSP dried Chamomile flowers
1 tsp whole cloves or (1/2 tsp ground cloves)
1 cup boiling water
1 TBSP ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg

In a small pan steep chamomile & whole cloves in the water for 15 minutes. (If using ground cloves do not add at this time)
Strain the flowers & cloves from the water with tea strainer. Add cinnamon & nutmeg ( & ground cloves if using them) and stir. Reheat (do not let it boil) Make fresh each time.

I was the Queen of stomach issues, I was diagonsed with IBS, irritable bowel syndrome. Hmf... they gave me belladonna, didn't work... told me to relax... didn't work... told me I was lactose intolerant... that was funny, I went without milk products of any kind for 5 years... didn't work...

Ginger tea and occasional activated charcoal - worked.

No more problems.
