Day 18 Loving YL - Toddler Teething Relief

Toddler Teething Relief with Clove and Copaiba Essential oil Young Living for inflammation and pain

There is not one, but TWO teething monsters in my home! Today it was my toddler who was having the most trouble. He was drooling like a big hound dog and chewing on his fingers. To ease his mouth pain, I rubbed some of my magic toddler friendly non-toxic teething cream all around his mouth and gums. And as you can see from the picture, he helped as well. Not only for toddlers, adults can use this magic numbing cream for any mouth pain and/or soreness.

To make this cream, I start with about a teaspoon of coconut oil and put it into a small container. I add 5 drops of Copaiba and 15 drops of Clove essential oils. Since this is going in the mouth and can be ingested, I only recommend using Young Living essential oils. Stir it up then test in your own mouth. Give it a few seconds and see if you feel it needs to be stronger. The Copaiba will help with the inflammation while the clove will numb the tooth and gums. Store the rest for later.

Copaiba is a powerful essential oil from South America that has traditionally been used to aid digestion and support the body's natural response to injury or irritation. Copaiba contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene (55 percent) of any known essential oil.

Clove essential oil has a sweet, spicy fragrance that is stimulating and revitalizing. An important ingredient in our Thieves blend due to its wonderful immune-enhancing properties, its principal constituent is eugenol, which is used in the dental industry to numb the gums. Clove is the highest-scoring single ingredient ever tested for its antioxidant capacity on the ORAC scale. Always dilute for topical use. Clove may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.

  1. I've really been wanting to get into essential oils, and I think this is a great place for me to start! Is this safe for infants under 1 year, because I would love to try it on my 10-month-old! He's really been struggling with teething, and we had to resort to Motrin the other night, and I hate giving medications ): Thank you so much for sharing! <3

  2. I had the same question as above! Was wanting to make this, but wanted to make sure it was OK for my 10 month old before I make it.

  3. It is, but make sure you also do your research and make informed decisions when using essential oils on yourself and your babies :)
