You may want to try some essential oils to help sooth teeth and gums and clove essential oil is the most recommended. It is suggested to first mix clove with fractionated coconut oil, then dab a little on your finger and rub it on the gums. I didn’t get in to essential oils until after my babies were too old to try this, but I found some helpful information from others about essential oils and soothing teeth and gums you may like…
Always dilute oils in a carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil or olive oil) before using it on your baby. Apply lavender essential oil on the infant’s feet and then melaleuca essential oil or lavender essential oil on the gum. Other resources suggested applying:
- Melaleuca essential oil
- White Fir essential oil
- Myrrh essential oil
- On Guard Protective Blend
- Serenity Restful Blend
