Natural Teething Solutions

My son started teething around the age of about 6 months. Currently he has two bottom teeth that are fully in, and the two top ones that are in the midst of the breaking the skin. Ouch! So I have used a combination of a few things with suggestions from other moms, Facebook groups and good ole

For temporary relief I've used:
*Basic teething toys that go in the freezer
*Cool or frozen washcloth
*His pacifier in the freezer
*Baby Mum-mums (A non-gmo, organic teething wafer)
*A amber teething necklace from Baltic Essentials

We have also used Camilia Homeopathic medicine, it is a teething relief for painful gums and irritability. Made from naturally sourced active ingredients. Benzocaine and Preservative free,  Benzocaine is a local anesthetic (numbing medication) that can cause a condition in which the amount of oxygen carried through the blood is greatly reduced. One of the reason why we choose to use homeopathic medicine for our little one.

With essential oils we just recently made our own teething numbing agent and tooth tonic and placed in a roller ball and we are ready to rock and roll. Of course, every child is different and we used Doterra essentials oils and this is what has been working for us😃

-Clove (1 drop)
-Wild Orange (2 drops)
-1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
*Rub a few drops on gums

Tooth Tonic
-3 drops of Lavender
-2 drops of Clove
-10 ml roller ball
-Fill with coconut oil
*Apply on jaw line, behind the ear, down to the chin.
(Before naps and bedtime)

So far its been much better going the natural route for temporary relief of teething and overall a healthy choice for the little one. He is sleeping much better and not many burst of cries of enduring pain. Hopefully something on here helps you out as well.
