Natural Teething Remedies

Most natural teething remedies used by parents involve using herbs. Chamomile is the queen of teething remedies for crying, irritable babies.

I grew up drinking Chamomile tea. My Mom used to give it to me for virtually anything and still love my cup of Chamomile tea when I feel out of sorts. 

Chamomile can be used in different ways to help teething babies: 

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea is the easiest way to calm a irritable baby. It also works well if the baby has diarrhea or sour, acidic stools  due to teething.

Brew a strong tea using 2 tea bags in one cup of water or 1/4 ounce in 250 ml of boiling water.

Let it steep for 15 minutes.

Wait until it is room temperature before giving it to your baby. 

Use an eye dropper or a small spoon and feed it to your baby.

Frozen Popsicle

Chamomile frozen popsicles: babies that like cold on their gums will really love this recipe. 

Make a very strong Chamomile tea 4 bags or 1/2 ounce of loose tea in 500 ml of boiling water.

Let it steep for 20 minutes.

Let it cool off.

Pour into popsicles plastic containers.

Place them in the freezer until frozen

Teething Cloth

I have done this with my son James and he loved it so much he still asks me to do this when is unwell with the flue and has fever. Soak a clean baby face cloth in Chamomile tea and freeze. 

Use 4 Chamomile tea bags in 2 cups of boiling water. Pour the water and let it steep for 20 minutes.

If you have Chamomile flowers (I grow them in my garden, dry them and save them in glass jars), use 1/2 ounce of Chamomile flowers in 500 ml of boiling water.

Simply soak your baby face cloth for 5 minutes and then place it inside your freezer for 1-2 minutes. They get stiff by the ice formations.

Herbal Gum Rub

You can make your herbal gum rub at home and avoid harmful chemicals in baby's gum rubs. Here is how to make these natural teething remedies:

Clove Oil And Oil Of Olive Rub

Clove oil has anesthetic properties and helps relieve gum pain.
Dilute 1 drop of Clove oil in 1-2 tablespoons of oil of olive.
Rub the mix on your baby's gums using you clean finger.

Licorice Root Paste

Licorice helps soothe red, painful swollen gums. It has anti- inflammatory properties. 

Homeopathic Teething Remedies

The best natural teething remedies that are non-toxic, gentle and safe are homeopathic remedies. Homeopathic remedies are available at your local health food store, online or through a professional homeopathic or naturopathic physician.

Some babies begin teething as early as three months of age while others will take longer, even after 12 months. Make sure you have homeopathic remedies ready so that your baby will not have to suffer!

Some babies will be symptom free while other will become very irritable, have a mild fever, a runny nose, diarrhea, diaper rash, and sleeping problems. If this case natural teething remedies will be needed. 

How Are Homeopathic Remedies Made?

All homeopathic remedies are 100% natural teething remedies and are made through a pharmaceutical method called "Potentization," which is the process of increasing the potency of a remedy by a process of dilution and succussion, or shaking.

This process is repeated many times in order to achieve the desired potency. The higher the potency, the stronger the remedy and the lower the amount of substance present.

Remedies are derived from a variety of natural sources including plants, minerals, animals and are prepared in licensed laboratories under strict quality control.

Even if homeopathic teething remedies are safe and non-toxic they should only be taken when indicated according to the principals of homeopathic medicine.

Potency/Dilution Factor

Homeopathic remedies are so highly diluted that do not pose any risk of toxicity. Usually 6C and 30C are given during acute conditions. The higher the potency, the stronger the medicine the less need of dose repetition.

 How To Give Homeopathic Teething Remedies´╗┐

If the baby is 6 months or older you can give him one pellet in his mouth every 15-20 minutes until symptoms improve, then every 2-4 hours until symptoms are relieved.

If the baby is younger, it is best to give him a liquid preparation.

Place 3 drops in a teaspoon of water or breast milk.

The dose should be repeated only if necessary. When your baby is feeling better, happy, playing and eating well, there is no need to repeat a dose.

As the baby begins to get grumpy and irritable repeat a dose. Sometimes one dose will do the trick, in other cases repetition is necessary. 

List Of Homeopathic Remedies

he following teething remedies are often recommended by homeopathic practitioners. They are selected based on the unique symptoms of the baby.

Calcarea carbonica

Calcarea carbonica is given to babies that are overweight and are late teething ( over 12 months). This remedy helps teething babies that suffer from diarrhea with sour stools, sour sweat and sour spitting up.

The baby tends to smell like vinegar be acidic. The baby may have pale stools and suffer from diarrhea that alternates other constipation.

Besides a digestive system weakness, the baby needing Calcarea carbonic also may develop itching skin eruptions during dentition, especially eczema on the chin, arms, legs and chest. He also may develop diaper rash during teething.

Besides being late teething, the baby that responds well to Calcarea carbonica is also late standing and walking.

Most moms report noticing profuse sweat on the head and scalp during naps or sleep at night.


Chamomilla is the best remedy to treat a very irritable baby. it helps soothe inflamed red, swollen gums. He has a lot of drooling and desire to keep fingers in the mouth all the times. He may try to bite everything and if nursed, he will bite your breast.

Babies who need Chamomilla may often have one cheek is hot and red while the other is pale. Chamomilla treat teething pains accompanied by diarrhea which is often green stools.

The infant is hyperirritable and may scream and hit. The only relief they experience comes when they are being carried about or gently rocked. The baby is really irritable and his teething pain is worst at night giving him sleeplessness.


Pulsatilla is helpful for teething babies who are clingy, nervous or tearful. The want to be with their mother all the time and cry uncontrollably when the mother leaves the room. They have a fear of abandonment.

There is a yellow-green nasal discharge with teething.

The baby who needs Pulsatilla feels better outdoors and worse indoors in warm stuffy rooms. They enjoy rides outside and prefer a open window at night that provides fresh air.

The baby needing pulsatilla is often a girl with very delicate features. She is thirstless.

Coffea cruda

Coffee treat teething babies that are very restless and cannot go to sleep. You can give Coffea to a baby who is excitable, nervous child with trouble sleeping due to pain. The Gum pain is better by cold applications, like ice or cold water.


Belladonna is a great anti-inflammatory remedy. Belladonna is used to treat teething problems that present fever. The baby had dilated pupils, red cheeks, hot face and head a d cold hand and feet.

The baby that needs Belladonna has Profuse salivation and tends to grind his teeth due to nerve pain in his gums. Often the teething pain extends to the ears and the baby tends to pull on his ears, especially the right side. Belladonna is a great remedy for middle ears infection.

If you look inside this baby's mouth you will notice, very red and inflamed gums. Most babies respond well to Belladonna.

Tissue Salts

Tissue salts are called this way because they are present in the extracellular fluid of cells and tissue. When there is an imbalance, symptoms appear.

Babies who are teething tend to be acidic and have a imbalance in the metabolism of calcium. The tissue salts Calcarea Phosphorica and Calcarea Fluorica are excellent natural teething remedies that correct this type of imbalance at the cellular level.

They can be given daily to aid dentition in children, helping healthy teeth development and prevent cavities. 


Keep teething remedies at room temperature and in the dark. Try to keep the container away from direct sunlight, strong odors (including spices and essential oils), electric and magnetic items (Cell phones, TV sets, Home appliances, Computers, etc.)

Dispense 5 drops of the treatment drops in a baby spoon (plastic is best) and give it to your baby.

Give to the baby every 15 minutes the first 2 hours e, then every 30 minutes for the next 2 hours and then each hour.

Seek Medical Care

Most at home natural teething remedies work well for most babies. Ifyour child is under twelve months of age, make sure to consult with your pediatrician if he or she develops a fever, has diarrhea and extreme irritability. These symptoms can be easily attributed to teething problems by parents, but may also be caused by infections. 

Neckless For Teething

Among natural teething remedies there are also amber necklaces. You can make your own necklace for teething babies that may help. I cannot guarantee that they will work in all cases, but I have heard of moms who had great success making and using necklaces for their babies. 

Make a necklace from amber gemstones and Hazelwood.

Amber gem stone comes from tree resin that is now become a fossil. This stone, when worn against the baby's skin, releases the healing oils of the resin that help sooth inflammation.

Hazelwood is used to balance body pH and neutralize acidity during teething.

Treating Teething Symtoms

Most babies exhibit clear baby teething signs, while others will be fussy or have absolutely no signs or symptoms at all.

My son first tooth came out without warning, when he was 8 month old. My daughter first tooth came on at 9 months and my other son's first tooth come up when he was around 11 months. All three of them had no problems initially, but when the molars came out they felt more pain that I treated with homeopathic remedies.

This recipe is a mixture of remedies that I have given to them with great success. 

Teething Signs

Each child is different, some may teeth at 4 months while others will have their first tooth at 12. Experts say that this is normal. Most babies will begin having baby teething signs around 5-7, and the first lower incisors will appear.

It is normal for a baby to begin teething two to three months before cutting the first tooth.

These are the very first baby teething signs: 


Drooling while teething is one of the most common baby teething signs. Most babies will drool a lot while other will have a little drooling, but do expect to have to invest some money on nice and colorful bibs for your baby. 

Homeopathic Remedies For Drooling While Teething

Plantago is another remedy helpful for teething babies who salivate a lot during teething. Their gums are very sensitive. As the baby teeth cut through the gums, the baby experiences intense pain.

Plantago is used to treat teething pain and ear pain. You can use the mother tincture of Plantago and rub a few drops on babies gum.

If the baby pulls on his ears, you should have him checked for ear infection, but most babies do feel ear pain while teething.

Mercurius is the most commonly used to treat typical baby teething signs when drooling is excessive. The child is worse by cold air, cold applications and biting. The teething pain may extend to the ears and gets worse at night.

Gnawing, Chewing, Sucking, and Biting

Gnawing, chewing, sucking and biting are all baby teething signs you will notice easily. Babies who are teething like firm pressure on their gums to relieve pain.

So, your baby will begin to gnaw or nip at your fingers or whatever feels good to him.

Homeopathic remedies for biting during teething:

There is really nothing you can do to stop your baby from biting other then to offer a teeter, but this behaviour is very helpful in finding the right homeopathic remedy to help soothe the overall teething pain

Homeopathic Remedies For Biting During Teething

Belladonna is indicated for babies who are in great pain that makes them want to bite. Their gums are really red and they can get really irritable with kicking and screaming.

Calcarea carbonica helps babies who put their fingers in their mouth to help relieve their pain.

Calarea carbonica is also indicated for late teething ( after 12 months), babies who grind their teeth or gums at night, and perspire a lot during teething.

These babies wake up covered in sweat,  especially on their head. In general, babies needing this remedy, sweat a lot, have sour smelling stools and may spit up a lot, too.

Crying And Irritability

Among all the baby teething signs, crying is a very confusing one because you do not know for sure if the baby is teething or has something else. 

Most babies cry when in pain, but if their crying becomes really distressing with irritability, your baby definitely has a problem. Check with your doctor to make sure your baby does not have any other underlining illness.

The following homeopathic remedy can help a crying baby during teething:

Homeopathic Remedy For Drying And Irritability During Teething

Chamomilla helps crying, irritable babies that are very fussy and cannot be consoled. The baby demands one thing, then it throws away, wants to be carried, feels better for a while and then is unhappy again.

Nothing seems to work.

You can notice that one cheek is red with inflamed gums and the other is pale. Ice Popsicles help this baby.

Make sure to make them using Chamomile tea. Their stools smell like rotten eggs or are greenish.

Skin Rash

It is possible for your baby to develop, diaper rash and also rash on his face, especially on the cheeks and around his mouth. The acidity of the saliva is the cause of this. 

Homeopathic Remedies For Skin Rash During Teething

Chamomilla babies have the typical red check on one side, while Calcarea carbonica tend to have redness around the mouth and some may develop eczema on harms and legs.

Silica and Sulphur can help if the child develops skin eruptions during teething.

Silica helps a weak emancipated child with loos of appetite that has constipation and difficulty digesting mother's milk.

Sulphur helps for teething with skin eruptions, hot, red and itchy, especially around the mouth and anus and with diarrhea while teething.

If the skin rash becomes bleeds or gets worse, consult with a professional homeopath or see your doctor.

Low Appetite & Aversion To Food

Some babies stop eating solids while teething. This is because socking gives them pain. They usually nurse a little and them stop and cry or become fussy. 

Homeopathic Remedies For Aversion To Food During Teething

Arnica is a great remedy for pain. Give your baby one pellet of arnica 30 CH 15 minutes before eating to help reduce the pain and feel more relaxed.

Give Calcarea phos 6x 4 tablets 4 times a day to boost appetite and help absorb minerals.

Waking At Night

Most babies feel worse at night and wake up numerous times due to the pain.

The best homeopathic remedy after Chamomilla is Coffea. 

Homeopathic Remedy For Insomnia During Teething

Coffea helps babies who are hyperactive and do not sleep a lot during the night or even during the day.

Coffea helps babies that are better by cold applications and worse from warmth drinks and foods. If they take a nap, they wake up right away.

Consider giving one pellet of Coffea 30 CH before bed time.

Avoid Drugs Whenever Possible

When you notice baby teething signs, you know your baby is not well. I recommend doing something natural initially to help him. Natural teething remedies are safer than giving your baby Tylenol or other drugs and often work really fast.

How To Give Homeopathic Remedies

Select a potency of 6 CH or 30 CH and give one pellet 3-5 times a day for 3-5 days. Consult with a professional homeopath for best results.

The trick with homeopathic remedies is to be preventive:

Give the remedy to your baby as soon as you notice something is wrong, do not wait until he gets worse. If your baby does not have any particular symptom, just teething fussiness.

Other home remedies you can use are:

1. Give your baby a biscuit

2. Try a frozen baby face cloth dipped in Chamomile tea before freezing.

3. Offer cold teething ring

4. Rub his gums with your finger.

Baby teething sings appear three days before and after the tooth cuts through the gum, so you should expect to have an irritable baby for about one week.

In some children teething seems to last forever simply because a tooth comes next to the other, but eventually your baby should have a break.

Late teething children (after 12 months of age) seem to face this problem more than those who begin teething at 7 months.

Your baby will get through teething, try to stay calm and get help when things seem to get worse. You will notice that your baby will be miserable for a few days and go back to his old self in no time.

Organic Teething Toys

The best organic teething toys are organic stuffed baby teething toys your baby can chew easily and you can wash and keep clean. These toys are made by 100% organic material and are safe and non-toxic for your baby. 

When teething, babies love stuffed toys. Make sure your baby has lots of stuffed toys made of organic materials that he can put in his mouth and chew while playing with them. It is safe for your baby and you can easily wash them in the washing machine. 

Also, make sure they are appropriate for your baby's age because you do not want them to have small parts like eyeballs that can be ingested causing harm to your baby.

Some babies like to chew on something hard and some prefer something soft. Others like to chew on something cold while others they do not like to put things into their mouth except their own fingers!

Find the best baby teething toy for your baby without the chemicals! I find that online stores carry the best quality baby teething toys because they are manufacture by small companies that care more about the quality then the quantity. I recommend purchasing for a North America or European manufacturer that sells high quality toys. I like Our Green House

Teething Blankets

Teething blankets are excellent for teething babies, so soothing with no risk of putting chemicals inside baby's mouth.

There are so many teething toys, but not all of them are useful as teething blankets. If you want to use something great, get an organic teething blanket that you can wash and keep clean in case it ends up on the floor.

I also had a couple in my diaper bag, just in case. These blankets work really well because they are soft and baby can cuddle with them while strolling around or in the car seat.

A teething baby is allays looking for something to put into his mouth and teething blankets are the best thing for a baby to have to chew on.

I hope you find the best organic teething toys for your baby. I would recommend these organic teething blankets.

I hope you have fun finding the perfect organic teething toy for your baby.

Non-Toxic Baby Toys

Baby teething toys should be 100% natural and safe, free of chemicals and health hazards. When babies begin teething, they put everything in their mouth.

In order to prevent babies from putting toxic baby toys, that contain unsafe plastic chemicals like PVC, BPA or diisononyl phthalate, into their mouth parents look for all natural baby teething toys.

Teething in babies can cause discomfort and the use of a teething pacifier or a teething blanket can help soothe babies teething pain.

Do You Know How Safe Your Baby Teething Toys Really Are?

You can purchase NEW NON-TOXIC Baby teething ring made of natural wood or use an old 100% organic cotton baby blanket that your baby can keep while teething.

When buying baby infant toys or baby car sea toys make sure they are safe and made with 100% natural non toxic materials.
