The Advantages of Clove Bud Essential Oil

Aromatherapists use Clove Bud Essential Oil to bring patience and persistence, cleanse the mouth, brighten a room, and as a powerful cleaning agent.
Although clove trees start to flower in 6 years, it takes about 20 years to produce a full crop of clove buds, which is why this fragrance is associated with patience and persistence, and helps keep us rooted. Mixing with a carrier oil and applying it to the wrists and neck will help transfer these qualities to your aura, and bring about a calming effect.
