My 11 year old daughter has her 12 year molars coming in. A baby cannot put words to teething pain (though they cry and we don't always know why! ) But an 11 year old can communicate her pain. I had her put clove oil on her finger and rub it on the pained area. Within a minute her pain was better and didn't even return the next day!
I have used clove oil on a baby's teething pain. It is best to dilute it half with coconut oil, but once I was not at home and only had clove oil. I put a drop of the oil on my finger and rub the pained area. It usually works very quickly! I am careful not to get it on the lips as it isn't very comfortable.
