Clove Oil - For Teething?


I was told vanilla would work but it did nothing for her other than distracted her because of the taste. I just started reading about essential oils and came across clove oil. No one I know has tried it so just throwing it out there to see thoughts and opinions.

I use clove oil when my wisdom teeth are bothering me and it says on the bottle for adults only. Its pretty strong stuff. Have you tried something like Weleda teething powder (there are other brands) which has Chamomillia (sp). 90+% of the time its been all DD needs though we have resorted to panadol 5 or 6 times in the middle of the night when the teething powder didn't help.

I've used it for myself and it is very strong as pp says. I'm not sure I would put that in an infants mouth as I don't think it would be suitable.

Punkin Butt teething oil is a baby safe blend of oils including clove oil. It worked amazingly for my LO and saved my sanity on many nights. I'm sure it's easier to get in the US as it's a US company (the same company as Sheepish Grins I think). In the UK I think Funky Monkey Pants and maybe Millie's Nappies stock it.

I'm not sure I would blend oils myself as I don't know enough about what would be ok for babies. The PB stuff we had was a sample size bottle and has lasted from 4 months old to now (17 months), used quite a lot and still with loads left, so I think it's good value to buy it anyway.

ive been using clove oil on my wisdom tooth and its absolutly discusting! it tastes so bad and the tastes lasts hours!! I think its for adults only but im not sure, anyway my point is your baby is likely be more bothered and upset by the terrible taste of clove oil rather than teething itself

My LO really seemed to like the one we used but I'm not sure how clovey it is! Smells nice though, kind of a warm spicy smell I guess.

Haven't tried the baby one (or heard of it before Rachel mentioned it) but I imagine it wouldn't have much of a clove-y taste to it. I personally love the smell and taste of cloves but I think I'm in the minority lol. I love spraying my clove oil I use for mould as it makes my house smell like chai lol.
