Have you heard of Clove oil for teething? You may want to try some doTERRA oils to help with teething. I didn’t get in to doTERRA until recently so I haven’t had a chance to try any doTERRA oils on my own children but I found some helpful information from others about doTERRA and teething you may like…
Always dilute oils in a carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil or olive oil) before using it on your baby. Apply Lavender on the infant’s feet and then Melaleuca or Lavender on the gum. Other resources suggested applying Melaleuca, White Fir, Myrrh, On Guard &/or Clove (with fractionated coconut oil). If you choose to go with Clove, be careful not to get any on the lips or tongue as it is extremely strong for an infant.
“Deep Blue along the jawline of my first-born worked best – he fell asleep right away.”
“Dab a little Clove on your finger and then rub it on the gums where the tooth is coming through and within minutes, the fussing stops.”
Here are some other ideas on how to treat the CAUSE of teething.
