Clove has been known for many years for its use in dental preparations, and for its numbing effects in toothpaste and other dental preparations. This is in partly due to the presence of eugenol as a chemical constituent. Highly diluted with other oils and a carrier, clove can be used in a muscle warming preparation with ginger, frankincense, helichrysum and lime.
It is also reminiscent of the holidays and the traditional orange with the clove buds stuck into it. You can make a potpourri with clove, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and orange with dried plant parts and herbs and the essential oils...divine! Just refresh when the aroma gets a little soft. As with all spice oils it has been employed to help support the digestive system and to aid in digestive complaints.
Safety and contra-indications: Clove is extremely potent and is way too strong to be used neat (undiluted with a carrier), and should never be used in more than a .5 % dilution. Other oils listed above can be added to it to dilute it as well.
Child Safety: Not for use on children or babies at all.
Suggested use: It is an amazing cleaner for surfaces, especially in the bathroom and kitchen, and can be great at sanitizing surfaces. Only a little dab will do ya, it is so strong that only a few drops are needed. Mix with tea tree, lemon and eucalyptus for a powerful cleaner. Use gloves with this one when you clean! Keep away from babies, children and pets.
Take care: Do not apply without a carrier such as jojoba, bath salts or any unscented product like lotion or shampoo. Do not use with infants and children without instruction, and if so at a greatly diluted ratio of .5% or less. The recommendation for topical use is from 3 to 5 % for most people. However, take care if you are elderly or are ill. If you have a reaction to it, stop using and immediately contact a medical professional. Not for internal use unless under the guidelines of an aromatherapist. Remember that essential oils and absolutes are 75 to 100 times stronger than the plant they come from, so they are very different than an herbal or other natural preparation.
