for the h of it
the equivocation inherent in RSE abuse of science facts is remarkable
eg, this site posts realm new breakthroughs in science like
then post something childish likeUsing data from the VISTA infrared survey telescope at the European Southern Observatory's Paranal Observatory, an international team of astronomers has discovered 96 new open star clusters hidden by the dust in the Milky Way. These tiny and faint objects were invisible to previous surveys, but they could not escape the sensitive infrared detectors of the world's largest survey telescope, which can peer through the dust. This is the first time so many faint and small clusters have been found at once
essential oils are "powerful" because they are immersed in liquid aspiriin, which is why someone's fever will be reduced by a drop or two---NOTHING to do with the peppermint as such. My daughter when she was 2 or 3 was with a baby sitter my ex-wife hired. The BS was a new agey lady who kept essential oils around and let the kids she had sniff them one day..she left them on a counter, my daughter snuck back into the room and drank a vile just before her mom went to pick her up. They called an ER and the nurse at the ER said not to worry, it is just "aspirin." a half hr later her mom dropped her off at my place because it was my turn to take her for the weekend. Her cheeks looked very red and she threw up. I called a doc I knew who said get her to an ER immediately....her stomach was pumped....I am blown away by what I didn't know about essential oils. For example, I didn't know that 2 drops of peppermint oil can bring a baby's temperature down in 15 minutes. Lavender and Melaleuca oils can cure an ear infection in 1 day for only 64 cents versus a trip to the doctor for prescription antibiotics that take a week to do their job. How is it possible that I didn't know essential oils not only are antibiotic, but they are also anti-viral? When the doctor says, tells me my flu symptoms are viral and there is nothing he can prescribe, I wonder how is it possible he doesn't know about the anti-.....
There was enough "aspirin" in that small vile to cause brain damage and kill someone due to internal hemmorage or extreme dilation of blood vessels.
I was one scared and pissed off father. Luckily she came out of it without brain damage. Back then 1981 the viles were not marked as "poison" or as aspirin. I do not kow if they are now...

Did you know that Wintergreen Essential Oil contains 85-99% of methyl salicylate, the same component of aspirin? Yes, thirty ml (about an ounce) of wintergreen oil is equivalent to about 171 adult aspirin tablets or about 60 grams of aspirin.
