CLOVE BUD USES AND BENEFITS

For example, place a single drop of Clove Bud oil in 60 mL of water and gargle for a soothing effect and a clean feeling, especially after a professional teeth cleaning. You can also add one drop of Clove Bud oil to your toothpaste, which will promote clean teeth and fresh breath.
- Being derived from a famed cooking spice, it’s no wonder that Clove Bud oil also has a place in your kitchen cabinets. Try substituting whole cloves, or the ground spice, with one drop of Clove Bud essential oil in dinner and dessert dishes. Because of its warm, spicy characteristics, Clove oil makes an especially perfect addition to your favorite autumn or holiday recipes.
- Not only are the spicy, autumn notes of Clove Bud oil great for cooking, you can also enjoy the scent as a part of your soothing skincare routine. Combine one drop Clove Bud oil with a quarter-sized amount of the doTERRA SPA Hand and Body lotion for a gently warming sensation on the skin during moisturizing.
- Freshen up your home space and boost your decor game with a homemade potpourri made with Clove Bud essential oil. Complement Clove Bud oil’s aroma with choices like Cinnamon Bark oil, Cassia oil, Vetiver oil, Wild Orange oil, and any other favorites for a warm, spicy, herbal aroma that boasts the cozy scents of fall.
- Because Clove Bud oil provides a warming sensation to the skin, it is the perfect companion to a calming massage at home. Because Clove Bud oil is a “hot” oil, be sure to dilute each drop with 10 drops of a carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut oil before using in a massage.
- Experience the invigorating scent of Clove Bud oil by diffusing it all year long, but especially during the fall and winter seasons. For a stimulating aroma, diffuse a blend of three drops of Clove Bud oil, two drops of Cinnamon Bark oil, and one drop of Wild Orange oil in the essential oil diffuser of your choice.
Clove gets its name from the Latin word clavus
, meaning “nail.” The plant earned this name because the dried buds of clove resemble small tacks or nails.PLANT DESCRIPTION
Sourced from Madagascar, Clove Bud essential oil is harvested and steam distilled from unopened and dried flower buds of the evergreen tree, Eugenia caryophyllata
