I bought this on a recommendation from a friend who used it with her teething twins. I have very mixed feelings about this teething oil. The smell of the cloves and peppermint is very strong. A little bit definitely goes a long way. My six-month old hates to see me coming with this bottle, and the second the oil hits her gums she starts drooling like crazy. However, after a couple of minutes she calms right down, and is in absolutely no pain. So I must say even though this product is kind of my last resort when it comes to my baby fussing over teeth, I would certainly recommend it to others who are looking for something else to work when the other numbing agents don't.
UPDATE: This is now my GO-TO for teething pain for my nine-month old. I made a small adjustment to my administration (combined 3.5 tbsp coconut oil with .5 tbsp of the Punkin Butt Teething Oil, and put it in a two oz. baby food jar), and now she doesn't seem to mind the oil at all when I put it on her gums. I think maybe it was just too strong in the beginning. It still works just as quickly, maybe even quicker since she doesn't stress herself out trying to get away from me. I keep one jar in her bedroom, one jar in the diaper bag, and have sent one jar to day care with her. She gets it prior to each nap and sleeps much longer than she used to. I used to be lucky if I could get an hour out of her nap time. Now she sleeps AT LEAST two hours, sometimes longer if no one waked her up. This stuff has definitely been a lifesaver. I would absolutely encourage anyone looking for teething relief to try this oil. You may have to come up with some sort of concoction like I did, but it's certainly worth a shot if you're at your wits end. Good luck!
