Candy Canes, made with natural peppermint oil, are not just decorative and fun to eat; candy canes can battle stomach ailments during the holiday season.
“Peppermint is effective at settling an upset stomach, and it tastes strong and refreshing. If that rich holiday dinner leaves you feeling a little queasy, just snag a candy cane off the tree and you have dessert and a convenient stomach remedy all in one. It also makes a handy breath freshener. If you don’t have a candy cane around, a peppermint lozenge will work just as well.” ~ How Stuff Works
