Buyer beware.

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 which was totally out of character for her.

Each lady had tried to calm her and find out why she was unhappy . I am not really that knowledgeable 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 child's back in a circular motion it had calmed her. We were all thrilled to have a calmer nursery that day. I also have used the oil in my diffuser at home and 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 spitting up and dirty diapers. The diffuser helped a great deal as an air freshener also.
