Clove has been used for years in dental preparations and gum for its ability to cleanse the mouth, yet it provides a myriad of benefits. Its main chemical component, eugenol, makes it a very stimulating and energizing essential oil that can be used as a warming massage oil. One drop can clean the teeth and gums while promoting fresh breath.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Topical use: Dilute one drop of essential oil to 10 drops of carrier oil then apply to desired area. See additional precautions below.
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, face, and sensitive areas.
