Heartburn starts with a burning sensation in the chest, usually right after eating. It may last for just a few minutes or continue for several hours. In some cases, you may feel as if food is stuck in the middle of your throat or chest, or you may feel burning in your throat. Although heartburn does sometimes cause chest pain, seek medical help immediately if unexplained chest pain is present, as this is one of the chief symptoms of a heart attack.
Stop heartburn by eliminating triggers. Essential oils and other heartburn remedies ease symptoms, but they don't eliminate the cause of heartburn. Notice what sets heartburn in motion, then eliminate potential triggers until you have discovered the cause. Potential causes include acidic foods, caffeine, and wearing tight clothing that put pressure on stomach.
Eucalyptus, fennel, and peppermint essential oils are strong digestive agents that help alleviate nausea and quell other heartburn symptoms. Some people find that peppermint causes heartburn to get worse; if you are one of them, omit it from the treatment.
