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 go-to remedy for teething was a homeopathic tablet that worked amazingly well, but it had been recalled in the past because of unsafe levels of belladonna, causing adverse reactions in infants and toddlers. Because of this I was always hesitant to use them unless my baby was extremely uncomfortable with his teething.

After using and learning about Young Living essential oils, I found that the Thieves oil blend works well for teething because of the Clove oil that is in it. So I mixed:

* 20 drops of Clove
* 20 drops of Lavender

I put the drops in an empty 5 ml bottle and filled the rest up with coconut oil, placing a roller fitment on it.

I have been using this mixture ever since with great results. The baby loves it!
And I love how well it works.
