Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


My 11-month-old daughter had never slept through the night. I wondered if teething might be an issue.

So I mixed 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon coconut oil (to give texture) with 2-3 drops Clove essential oil. I rubbed this mixture in her mouth all over her gums. (If I do not have Clove, the Thieves essential oil blend will also work.)

My baby slept the WHOLE night for the first time ever... and then for another week straight! I forgot to apply this mixture one night, and she continually woke up again. Needless to say, I did not forget after that! And she has been sleeping ever since.

Did you know that, before numbing medications were created at the dentist's office, they used to use Clove essential oil for numbing the mouth?
