Really good for cutting class A drugs. When we had our first 9 years ago we was told this by the pharmacist. It was at a premium then. Mad ain’t it.

Good deal, although as an alternative they have the Nelson’s ones which work out better value and we prefer them.
Ironically we were looking to get some more teething granules today and like the busses two deals come up at once.
Our little boy seems to respond better with Nelson’s, but these are also tried and tested, so it’s a good time to get some in and help the little ones!

Here’s the link for the other deal in case you guys wanna try them:

PS: Good first deal too OP
Amazing product bought this 15yr ago, I only purchased as I was excited it had my sons name on Ashton. Then read what it was for and boy they worked a treat

Ashton & Parsons powders are herbal - they contain a small quantity of plant extract which might help with teething pain. There's 0.002ml of Matricaria extract in each powder.

Nelson's powders are homeopathic. Generally that means that the active ingredients have been diluted so much that not a single molecule remains. Nelson's are supposed to contain chamomile extract but it has been diluted 1,000,000,000,000 times. At that concentration you'd need to consume several packs before you found a single molecule from a camomile plant. They're a placebo. Just lactose sugar with nothing useful added.

And purely on a usage test, we’ve had both.
Ashton’s just doesn’t seem to work as well as Nelsons.

When it comes to controlling the pain of our son’s teething, i’m not looking for solutions, chemical formulas, milligrams of anything... i’m looking at what works.

Nelson’s (for us) do just that.
Used this on all 3 of our kids and worked a treat.

Sorry but that sounds load of rubbish. If it was just sugar then it wouldn't stop any pain at all. When my daughter has them it gives relief and helps her greatly. Sugar has no pain relief so these have something in them

You are corrext, homeopathy is a load of rubbish.
As I said, these do have something in then because they're herbal not homeopathic. Nelson's are homeopathic.
There's a lot of confusion between herbal remedies (some of which have some benefits) and homeopathic remedies (all of which are nothing more than placebos). Often the people selling then don't know the difference. Homeopaths like to encourage confusion.

Well the Nelson's work and a baby can't understand a placebo so something in them.

There really isn't and they really don't. Homeopathy is for people that don't understand science.

Hmm they really don't work when they actually do. How strange. I shall tell me baby that she's being dramatic then :-)
Absolute bargain !

No evidence base and as it's a herbal "medicine" there is no regulation or testing for things like carcinogenicity. They don't even have to prove any clinical evidence it is effective. Food for thought before giving it to a baby. I'd rather give an evidence based, safety tested, analgesic like paracetamol.

You shouldn't tell your baby she's being dramatic, but you should inform yourself (instead of rejecting something that is a fact) so you can explain to your baby when older why this stuff (or anything) does/doesn't work, and then you'll have a clever child

I've used this stuff after being given it by relatives, and knowing it was totally harmless as no active ingredient. The idea that parents can 'tell' it works for a baby is nonsense, babies are about the most unreadable things on earth. Even assuming you can, there's plenty of fairly obvious reasons, i.e. maybe babies like the feel of powder in their mouths when teething because it soothes in some way.

There's a reason we don't give children homeopathic remedies for a fever or anything serious...

Yes, these powders will do nothing, they have no anesthetic qualities. Clove oil on the other hand does. I think the active is called eugenol. It's not that gross tbh, I used it for my wisdom teeth. Saying that, it didn't compare to co-codamol mixed with a nightcap. Probably not advisable, but with wisdom teeth you tend to do whatever is necessary!
Great find x
