R45.00

The aromatic flower buds known as cloves are found on the Clove tree native to the Maluku Islands in Indonesia, and Madagascar. Cloves are well known for their rich fragrance and are often used as a spice. Essential oils are derived from the clove bud as well as the clove leaf. Clove Bud Oil has a stronger floral scent than Clove Leaf Oil and as a result, it is more commonly used for aromatherapy or for additions to room sprays and air-fresheners.

Clove Oil Uses

Adding clove oil to your health regimen is a great way to naturally boost your antioxidant levels.

If you want to harness the health benefits of clove essential oil, consider diffusing it in your home to clean the air. Diffusing it is an especially helpful method of using clove oil for improving immune health and blood pressure.  Aromatically it can help with mental clarity.

Have a toothache? Put a few drops of clove oil on a cotton swab and apply the oil directly to the gums around the painful tooth. If you find the clove oil to be too strong, you can dilute it with coconut oil or olive oil. If you don’t have any clove oil on hand, a whole clove can work well, too, by putting it in your mouth near the problem area and letting it remain there until you feel some relief.

Clove oil makes a great addition to homemade personal care products like deodorant and toothpaste. It’s also a potent antibacterial ingredient to add to homemade cleaners.

As a natural remedy to eliminate acne, take 3 drops clove oil and mix with 2 teaspoons, raw honey. Mix together and wash your face as usual.

Find my Homemade Toothpaste recipe that has mild remineralizing qualities, due to the xylitol, bentonite clay, and clove oil.

If you’re exposed to people with a cold or flu, you can mix it with coconut oil and rub it on your neck and chest for natural antioxidant protection. For high blood pressure, you can also dilute it with coconut oil and apply it to your wrists.

Due to its strength, clove oil should be mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil or other gentle oils for most topical applications and only used for short periods of up to two weeks internally.


Possible Side Effects and Caution

Clove is known to slow down blood clotting due to its eugenol content. Clove is known to interact with blood-thinning medications such as anticoagulant/antiplatelet drugs and for this reason, should not to combined with such drugs.

Dilution of clove oil with a carrier oil like coconut is recommended for topical use. Using the oil undiluted on the skin can cause irritation. When taking clove oil internally, do not use for longer than two weeks consecutively. When taking cloves essential oil internally, I always recommend taking a probiotic supplement twice daily to restore beneficial flora.

 

Warnings: Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or lactating, consult your healthcare practitioner before use. Clove essential oil is typically not recommended for use with children under the age of 2.
