A girlfriend recommended clove oil for my teething three month old. She said to apply it directly to her gums. It this safe? Should I dilute the oil?

Clove oil does contain natural compounds that can reduce pain when applied topically.  It has a long history of use in dental care primarily for relieving the pain associated with toothaches.  However, it is very important that the clove essential oil be prepared properly or else it can create many more problems than it will help.
