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.

I am amazed at the effectiveness of relieving the pain of teething for my daughter. I tried Clove oil, but it was not as helpful for her, so I needed something else. Recalling the pain relief I experienced from Melrose on my gums, I decided to try it for Rachel and it worked!

Rachel's only had a few really fussy days teething (she's got 5 teeth in), so I often figure out she's teething by her refusal to nurse and go to sleep, and then check for swollen gums. I dilute the Melrose in coconut oil and apply it to her gums. Admittedly, she doesn't always like it as the taste is quite strong, but it does take away the pain rapidly and there have been times she's seemed to welcome it.

After applying the Melrose/coconut oil, I sometimes put an ice cube in one of her socks, tie the top tight and give it to her to suck on. The cold from the ice cube helps too and soon she's ready to nurse to sleep. She also has a Baltic Amber teething necklace, which does seem to help relieve the pain. However, just the application of the oils alone has worked.

Supporting Scientific Study
teething - "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
