While doing nursery duty at church, I entered the care room to relieve the first service care givers. One little girl (13 months) was crying without letting up. Totally out of character for her. Each lady had tried to calm her and find a way of satisfy her unhappiness. I am not really that knowledgealbe on how to read a baby's stress as my only child is 22 and she is the only one I ever really held, but having Peppermint in my pocket, I put some on my hand and offered to hold the little girl and give it a try on comforting her. To our surprised within 2-3 minutes, she had quit crying and was drifting off to sleep. The attending ladies asked what I did. I told them by placing the Peppermint on my hand first, then gently rubbing the childs back in a circular motion it had calmed her. We were all thrilled to have a calmer nursery that day. I also have taken in my diffuser and used it in the nursery. The Peppermint makes the day peaceful and helps keep the crying and unhappy babies at a minimum. We all know how sour or stale a nursery can get with babies spiting up and dirty diapers. The diffuser helped a great deal in that way too.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: mood-swings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: mood-swings — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
3.Associated topics: mood-swings — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
4.Associated topics: mood-swings — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
