Like the popular spice from which it is derived, clove essential oil has a sweet, spicy scent that can boost your mood in seconds. Its warm, welcoming fragrance makes it ideal for creating natural air-freshening blends to scent your home. Clove is also outstanding as a pain reliever, so much so that dentists used it on their patients before contemporary numbing agents became available. It is still found in some toothpastes and over-the-counter toothache remedies. Clove is an outstanding addition to blends for easing muscle and joint pain, and it can help with indigestion.
Clove is a “hot” essential oil and it must be diluted for all applications except toothaches. Avoid clove essential oil during pregnancy. Do not use clove essential oil if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.
INHALATION: Mixed into 1 cup of water, a few drops of clove essential oil make a quick, uplifting room spray. If adding it to a diffuser, use the number of drops recommended by the diffuser’s manufacturer.
TOPICAL: Try adding 1 or 2 drops of clove essential oil to 1 teaspoon of your favorite carrier oil for an instant, warming massage. It’s ideal for post-workout blends and comforting rubs to ease coughs and congestion during cold and flu season.
BATH: Bath salts, body washes, hair products, and bath oils let you take advantage of clove’s enticing, mood-boosting fragrance, either on its own or with other essential oils.
Bugs hate clove, so it’s excellent as a natural insect repellent. Mix it with borax or diatomaceous earth to create an insect barrier around your home’s foundation, and try it in a personal insect-repellent blend next time you want mosquitoes to leave you alone. Replace expensive over-the-counter dental products with clove essential
oil. If you have a toothache and the dentist can’t see you right away, add 1 drop of clove essential oil to a cotton ball and press it to the sore tooth. Clove has antifungal, antiviral, and antiseptic properties, making it an excellent addition to purifying blends for keeping your home clean naturally. It’s even listed in many of the most popular recipes for traditional Thieves disinfecting blends.
