In the case of essential oils, the ion channel TRPM8 (this can be found mainly on skin and oral cavity) is activated in the same way as cold is doing: increasing or reducing the ion exchange.

Essential oil like peppermint oil or eucalyptus do possess to treat systemic dyspepsia by relieving pain cropped up in GI tract through IBS though they have little effect to address abdominal colic like covered by Simithicone.

Above all, they are from extraction from herbal leaf only and more prudent to obtain relief from pain superficially especially on muscles and ligaments.
