Papaya leaf juice recipe:
- In a blender, add cooled boiled water and papaya leaves.
- Blend it. The finished product will be a dark-green colored papaya juice.
Note: Papaya juice has a very bitter taste that is quite alike to the taste of over-steeped green tea. The fruit or flesh of the Papaya can also be blended with the leaves to lessen the bitterness, making it more palatable.
Due to its relaxing effect, peppermint tea is not advisable in treating acid reflux, since it might worsen heartburn. However, peppermint can be one of the most useful herbal medicines for acid reflux when used as an essential oil.
Peppermint oil can help soothe your heartburn, nausea, and upset stomach by inhaling its essence through the use of a diffuser. You can also apply peppermint oil on your stomach, back, and chest to ease discomfort due to acid reflux and heartburn.
Note: Peppermint oil comes in a high concentration. Thus, it is important to dilute it in carrier oils (jojoba or coconut) if you are going to apply it on your skin. You can sustain skin irritation and rashes if you use undiluted peppermint oil. Also, children under the age of 6 should not use peppermint oil (diffused or topical).
