Do you have a teether in your home? If so, you probably know that dealing with teething discomfort can be one of the most frustrating things for a parent and the child.
It interrupts their sleep, their play and their overall happy disposition. If you are looking for a natural way to help your baby or toddler through this, you will appreciate the tips I share in the video below!
For some additional recipes to create and have on hand, you can check out these:
For gum application
- 1/4 dram glass vials
- Clove Bud DoTerra Oil
- DoTerra Fractionated Coconut Oil
Add 10 drops DoTerra Clove Bud Oil to 1/4 dram vial, and fill the rest with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Apply when needed directly to babies gums to numb them. Note: as always you should test this first to make sure it is not too *hot*
For Jaw Line
- 5 ml Glass Roller ball (can be purchased on amazon )
- DoTerra Lavender Oil
- DoTerra Roman Chamomile Oil
Add 8 drops DoTerra Lavender oil and 8 drops DoTerra Roman Chamomile fill the rest with Fractionated coconut oil. Rub along babies jaw line for Relief. You can also add a few drops of DoTerra’s Deep Blue oil as long as you are sure it won’t get into the child’s eyes. Since my daughter is older I can do this, but you may want to skip that step for younger babies.
