  • I did! You must use a carrier oil, like olive too, because clove oil is very strong and will burn. I also made a necklace of whole cloves to wear myself and I allowed my babies to chew on that. It really does help!

  • I have never used it but heard it's an excellent pain reliever for teething and its more natural.

  • Ditto. Never used it but heard it has numbing properties - good for teething and more natural.
