Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. These essential oils are generally not very toxic at this little of an exposure. The worse I would expect to see would be some GI upset (vomiting and not wanting to eat), however that would be in the most extreme case. I would monitor for GI upset, but otherwise no treatment should be necessary.
