This time on a child:
Here is another example of the type of reports being collected. This one on a 5 year old coming down with a cold and
had the start of a cough. Please report any adverse effects to our
database here: http://atlanticinstitute.com/injury-reporting/
The mother reported:
Initial application of undiluted blend size of golf ball resulted in
five year old child suffering from an itchy rash that entirely covered her upper torso

The Mom used the oils neat at the advice of other

learned advice and did as they suggested, because I was desperate for
ANYTHING that would end her misery!
One of the suggestions was to use

things worse. Within an hour or so of applying the peppermint, the
itching became non-stop and unbearable and we had to take her to the
Pediatrician that afternoon for medication.”
Please help collect such stories to show us what is really happening out there in terms of bad advice.
