Have you tried dōTERRA Clove Oil yet? If not, you are missing out! The warm, spicy scent of Clove makes it very powerful and invigorating, and a good addition to a diffuser blend, especially in the fall and winter seasons.
The dōTERRA clove essential oil is Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) and can be used aromatically, internally, and topically. The oil’s properties are useful to relieve discomfort, germ-destroying, cleansing and purifying.
In addition, Clove oil has been used for years in dental preparations, candy, and gun for the ability to clean your mouth. It is also popular as a cooking spice. It is indigenous to Indonesia and Madagascar and its scientific name is Eugenia caryphyllata and the oil is distracted from the bud with steam distillation.
Clove essential oil is potent and you should always use a carrier oil such as fractured coconut oil or jojoba oil. I prefer the dōTERRA Fractured coconut oil, but also really like this jojoba oil
Six Ways You Can Use Essential Clove Oil:
Toothpaste Booster: Add one drop to toothpaste to lean teeth and gums
Mouth Freshener: Mix 2 drops of clove oil and peppermint essential oil in a cup of water put into a spritzing bottle and us as a mouth freshener as needed.
Mouth: Apply 1 drop of clove oil to the tooth that is causing you pain.
Acne: 3 drops of clove oil and mix with 2 tsp raw honey, mix together and wash your face
Energy Booster: You can use clove oil for aromatherapy purposes and diffuse it. Clove helps stimulate the brain and make you feel more alert and energetic. Use 3-4 drops in your diffuser for a wonderful scent.
Insect Repellent: Clove makes great bug spray.
Fill a 4 oz spray bottle 1/2 full with distilled water, add witch hazel almost to the top. Next, add 1/4 tsp of glycerin and 20-30 drops of clove oil. The more you add the stronger it will be both in repelling bugs and in the scent. I use these adorable blue glass spray bottles.
