This combination contains herbs that have been relied on by herbalists and mothers over the centuries to help soothe babies and help alleviate the pain and discomfort of teething. As well as being an effective pain-reliever and anti-inflammatory, the herbs also help relax babies, help promote restful, peaceful sleep, and help to alleviate any fever that may be present. Rescue Remedy is included in the blend, which is a flower essence that is helpful for babies who are inconsolable and who are so upset that nothing seems to help. It brings them back from "the edge", so that they can relax enough to allow the help that the herbs are providing. Weary parents find this combination helpful for their frayed nerves as well!
Ingredients: 100% organic Catnip, Chamomile, Passionflower, Rose & Lavender blossom, with Rescue Remedy flower essence blend. The herbs are extracted in organic vegetable glycerine (made with non-GMO soy) and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are gluten-free.
Teething can start as early as birth or the first few months of life, although that is rare. Teething episodes happen many times before the tooth actually erupts from the gum. The tooth has to work its way up through the gum and tissue before it actually emerges, and this can take several rounds of teething to happen. Sometimes it’s hard for a parent to realize that what their baby is going through is teething, as it can happen so early in life and there is no tooth that they can visually see or even feel to help them deduce the problem. Common symptoms are irritability, inability to sleep, sometimes fever, runny nose, drooling, and the need to chew on solid items.
Suggested Use: Use 2-6 drops of tincture as often as needed. It can be given directly to the baby orally, it can be massaged into the gums, and it can be put on the corner of a small, clean cloth and frozen to give baby something cold and hard to suck or chew on to alleviate their pain. If given orally to the baby, do not allow the baby suck on the glass dropper tube. More can be safely given if needed. For relaxation and to soothe frayed nerves, adults can use 1-2 droppersful (squeezes) as desired. Note: May cause drowsiness.
- Dear Pam and Herb Lore Staff, I just wanted to drop a line in appreciation of the quick shipping on my recent order. We are in the middle of molar mania over here and I'm a manic mommy! My 1yr old daughter has been miserable with teething pain this past week and waking at night every 2-3 hours like a newborn. She took a dropperful of Teething Tincture--she loved the naturally sweet taste!-- and is now napping peacefully going on 2 hours! Thank you! Thank you for everything you do to support mothers and families. I trust that anything I buy from Herb Lore will be made thoughtfully and naturally. Sincerely, T.Z.
