Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Our little man is nearly six months old. Since he has starting teething, our poor baby wakes up during the night and from naps screaming and crying in pain.

So we diluted one drop of Clove essential oil with one pump of V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex in a small glass container. We have been rubbing a bit on our baby's gums to help support him during the teething process.

As soon as the Clove oil hits his gums, our baby stops crying. Then I typically let him nurse or offer him a pacifier afterwards.

We love therapeutic-grade essential oils, and it feels so wonderful to have such an amazing way to help our baby grow!

"Both clove and benzocaine gels had significantly lower mean pain scores than placebos. No significant difference was observed between clove and benzocaine regarding pain scores. Clove gel might possess a potential to replace benzocaine as a topical [anesthetic] agent before needle insertion."Link
