Clove Bud oil has a very high ORAC value (antioxidant capacity) and profound healing qualities. It is a potent anti-microbial, anti-viral and anti-fungal oil. Clove is also an ingredient in anti-parasitic blends.
Historically, Clove oil was used to numb tooth pain. Since ancient times clove has helped keep mouths clean and healthy. As its Latin name suggests, Clove Bud contains a high concentration of a unique constituent called eugenol. Eugenol gives Clove Bud oil its impressive action against pathogens and microbes. With its warming, spicy fragrance, Clove Bud essential oil brings a flavorful, healing boost to any blend.
