My 15 month old daughter put her hand in some Kaz Inhalant (the kind you put in a steam vaporizor) and put her hand in her mouth. She didn't swallow a large amount, just what was on her hand. The ingredients are: Eucalyptus oil, menthol, Camphor, Methyl Salicylate (4/10ths of 1%), Lavender Oil, and peppermint oil (mint essential) in a mineral oil base.
I called Poison Control and they said it could cause vomiting and nausea, but I wanted to make sure that the essential oil content wouldn't be harmful to her. I have heard it is toxic to swallow Euc. oil. The bottle says if swallowed may act as a mild cathartic. What does this mean?
What are some signs of toxicity or poisoning? Any help is appreciated.
