Essential Oil of Cloves

Clove oil is made from the buds of the flowers of a tree that grows in tropical to Equatorial regions: Madgascar to Sri Lanka and Indonesia. It is an intense oil, most commonly used to relieve dental pain and infection and to dissolve the eggs deposited by intestinal worms. It is delicious but overwhelming in both smell and taste. It is antiseptic, carminative, warming, and very aromatic. It is often used as a flavoring in toothpaste, mouthwashes, and exotic foods.

CloveClove oil can be mixed into dental powders and toothpastes. My own preferred use is to add a few drops of clove oil to an ounce of a high quality cooking oil or coconut butter or, if available, black cumin seed oil. Diluted like this, clove oil can be applied directly to the gums or toothache. Another method is to fill a few (not many because the oil can dissolve the capsules) "00" vegetarian gelcaps and take one or two capsules a day to relieve flatulence and noxious odors in the digestive system. Peristalsis is also aided by this use. Ayurvedic practitioners simply put one drop into a glass of water and sip the water slowly.

Clove Bud, Madagascar, is most commonly used for tooth aches but is very antimicrobial and antifungal.  It is an excellent respiratory and cardiovascular aid. There is some research suggesting it normalizes thyroid function. If diluted (1% essential oil), clove oil can be used on the skin for acne, warts, scars, and parasites. It blends well with basil and cinnamon as well as lavender.
