ACK DON'T !!!!!!!!!!!!!<br><br><br>
I put clove oil (the tiniest dab with a cotton ball) on my tooth one night because I had a toothache and OMG THE PAIN. The sensation was like I had gargled bleach. It hurt SO MUCH <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes">
Personally I don't rec. Clove oil UNLESS IT'S HIGHLY DILUTED...I even think the herbs for kids blend is way too strong...I'd stick w/teething tea & homeopathic<br><br>

Highlands makes a homeopathic gel which our first DS loved. Also good orally is the homeopatic Chamomilla: helps with the crankiness etc.<br><br>
I would never use clove oil on a baby or child, even if it was EXTREMELY dialuted.
