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 heard all the horror stories about teething when I became a mother, so I did my research in advance. And when my daughter started gnawing on her fingers and drooling all over my favorite shirts, I reached for my oil supplies.

I took an empty 5 ml bottle of Frankincense (probably the equivalent of 1 drop of oil), added 5 drops of Clove, and then filled the bottle the rest of the way with food-grade liquid coconut oil (that I like to use for salad dressing). Then I topped it off with a roller fitment and grabbed a small toothbrush.

Now I was ready for anything gummy! Roll a little bit on your little one's toothbrush and let her chew away her woes. I never actually experienced the "horrors" of teething, and everyone told me how lucky I was. I just smile quietly to myself.

Here's the recipe again for quick reference:

* 5 ml glass bottle or container
* 1 drop Frankincense
* 5 drops Clove
* Food-grade carrier oil
* A roller fitment


Add essential oils to the bottle. Fill remaining space with a food-grade carrier oil. Attach the roller fitment and lid.

Apply to the gums and new baby teeth with a toothbrush or finger. Happy teething!!!
