mastitis and peppermint oil

I put peppermint oil on my breasts and it seems to have made me engorged when I was about to stop breastfeeding due to milk supply gone for a few drops.
Cows are treated with it but for humans it says not to due to lower supply. Has this happened to anyone else? I know it was the oil due to the timing of the change.

peppermint will lower your milk supply.
