Japomin Oil Drops: Product description

Consisting of pure essential mint oil, Arlberger Japomin Oil Drops can be taken for digestive complaints, inhaled for respiratory colds and applied to relieve muscle and nerve pain, such as mild tension headaches.

As it is an over-the-counter medicine, Arlberger Japomin Oil Drops are manufactured in Austria under the strictest quality controls. They contain neither preservatives nor colouring agents.

Mint oil for headaches and digestive problems

Like so many natural raw materials, pure essential mint oil has been used for centuries in some cultures, and in the East even for thousands of years, to cure various ailments such as headaches and digestive problems. In Austria, Japomin oil is a traditional herbal medicine that has been available for many years in every pharmacy and in selected health food shops.

Arlberger Japomin Oil Drops can be used both internally and externally.

When applied to the skin, Arlberger Japomin Oil Drops have a rapid, cooling effect. This is because the menthol in the mint oil triggers a feeling of cold via receptors, which helps to relieve headaches. In fact, though, your body temperature does not change. The effect is similar to that of capsaicin – where a feeling of warmth or heat is produced.

Since mint oil also has an antispasmodic effect, it can be used very effectively to treat muscle pain. Following application, the muscle relaxes and pain is relieved. Tension in the neck and shoulders is a common cause of headaches. Sitting in front of a computer for hours on end, not enough exercise and bad posture lead to a tightening of the muscles.

Used internally, Arlberger Japomin Oil Drops help relieve flatulence and bloating.

Arlberger Japomin Oil Drops: Uses and indications

How is essential mint oil obtained?

Essential mint oil (Menthae arvensis aetheroleum) is extracted from field mint (Mentha arvensis) by means of steam distillation.

On account of its extremely high menthol content of around 80%, the oil is dementholated before being used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. This is also how the well-known and frequently used menthol, which consists of white crystals, is produced.

Overall, mint oil goes through a complicated manufacturing process, after which it has a menthol content of between 30% and 50%. Other ingredients are menthone, isomenthone and menthyl acetate.

Since it is a medicinal product, both the raw material mint oil and the production process itself are subject to the strictest quality controls.
