Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My grandson who is now 5 months old has had his formula switched and been given Rx "colic drops" since birth and still has terrible gas cramps whenever he drinks his bottle. Recently I was asked to babysit while his parents went to a wedding. As soon as they left I put one drop of Peppermint Oil in the A/C filter as I was not sure how he would react with it directly on his body - our family has lots of allergies.

We spent the whole day and evening together, he drank all of his bottles, burped like he had no problems, didn't cry even one time and slept peacefully. Both times when his dad called to check on us he was surprised to hear the little guy giggling instead of screaming with pain. He also enjoys the Lavender I wear and he rubs his face against my neck as though he is sniffing it. A smiling baby makes the whole family smile!
