Both Melissa (Melissa officinalis), commonly known as lemon balm, and chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla or Chamaemelum nobile) are herbs that have been traditionally used for their potential calming and soothing effects on various bodily systems, including the digestive system. When used in a balm, these herbs are often applied topically to the abdomen to potentially provide relief from an upset stomach. Here's how they may contribute to soothing an upset stomach:
Melissa (Lemon Balm):
Antispasmodic Properties: Lemon balm contains compounds that may have antispasmodic effects, which means they could help relax the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract. This relaxation may ease cramping and discomfort associated with digestive issues.
Anti-Anxiety and Calming Effects: Lemon balm is known for its potential to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety. Stress and anxiety can exacerbate digestive discomfort, so the calming effects of lemon balm may indirectly contribute to relieving an upset stomach.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Chamomile contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation in the digestive tract can lead to discomfort and upset stomach, so chamomile's anti-inflammatory effects might help alleviate these symptoms.
Muscle Relaxation: Similar to lemon balm, chamomile has mild antispasmodic properties. This can help relax the muscles in the gastrointestinal tract, potentially reducing cramping and the sensation of nausea.
Nervous System Calming: Chamomile is often used as a mild sedative and calming herb. When applied topically or inhaled, its relaxing effects might indirectly ease stomach discomfort caused by stress or nervous tension.
When these herbs are incorporated into a balm and applied to the abdomen, the compounds in the herbs are absorbed through the skin and may interact with nerve endings, muscles, and blood vessels in the area.
This localized application can potentially provide a soothing and calming sensation to the upset stomach area. To aid symptoms of Period cramps, Nausea, indigestion, Bloating.
The aromatic properties of these herbs might also have a beneficial psychological effect, promoting relaxation and reducing stress.
