I think a lot of the things that may cause MC probably only apply in the first few weeks when baby isnt there for certain, and the advice is do nothing that may aggravate it. so i wouldnt worry just dont do it again.
I drink loads of peppermint tea so I hope it's not a problem! It's a wonderful remedy for gas and nausea. I would say that if your midwife isn't worried then all is well. I really can't see how it could cause miscarriage anyway.. it's an anti-spasmodic.. that means it relaxes the muscle tissue it comes in contact with.
I did the same thing around 10 weeks. I inhaled the peppermint...then read the bottle (note to self - always read the bottle first!). Everything is fine, I'm sure it's just a precautionary thing, but I won't be using it again.
If you've used peppermint essential oil before for other reasons and have never felt any ill effects, you can try using it, but not put it on your skin after the second trimester. Peppermint essential oil can sometimes cause early contractions. This is why it can be frowned upon. If you're still not sure, just avoid use at all.
