Peppermint - flu

Today we were just sitting on a park bench looking out at the Mediterranean Sea. A big Israeli family came to picnic. We noticed that their little boy was very very lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink or play. Eventually,the mom approached us and asked in Hebrew about the location of a pharmacy that is open today because her little boy was sick with a fever and a headache. We asked her to speak English if she could and so she carefully rephrased her question so that we could fully understand. We told her there were no stores open because it is The first day of the Biblical Celebration called the Feast of Tabernacles, but we told her we had natural medicine for her son if she would like to use it. I explained the lavender oil and what to do with it. She did what I said. Then |I gave her peppermint for his feet and she did that. In less than 5 minutes he was up and playing and full of energy and was happy. All of the family members thanked us over and over again and the grandpa was even blowing us kisses as they all drove away.
They gave us a bag of their wonderful fresh dates!!!!! What a treat.
