Treats inflammation of the gums during teething.
While teething is a normal stage of life, it does not always go smoothly. Several changes are occurring simultaneously: modification of the digestive secretions, adaptation of the gums and changes in eating, chewing and all digestive behaviours. Teething Drops Glycerite is a blend of herbs whose combined action helps ease this painful transition. The emollient and anti-inflammatory herbs (chamomile and marshmallow) soothe the gums. Valerian relieves pain and calms. Green oats and catnip affect the digestive system (by stimulating new digestive secretions) and the nervous system, calming teething-related nervous irritation, mild fever and excitability. Plantain completes the action by helping heal the gums.
Clef des Champs manufactures extracts using a base of vegetable glycerin. These glycerites, prepared using fresh plants from our own gardens, offer an effective way of treating children or people who are not able to tolerate alcohol. You must always dilute glycerites in a little water. As glycerin is not as potent a solvent as alcohol, you need to use larger doses, but it is quite safe for pregnant women, young children and the elderly.
