Clove is the aromatic flower bud of the Syzygium aromaticum tree, native to Indonesia. Clove bud is dried and commonly used as a spice to add flavor and aroma to several foods and hot beverages. 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.
One of the benefits of Clove Bud Essential Oil is that it is a friend of oral hygiene. This oil can be used as a breath freshener. Gargling the oil with a mixture of water can repel stinky breath and cleanse the mouth. After a rinse, you’ll be fresh, poised and ready to go. (Always dilute essential oils when taking them orally. Use your intuition about what is right and safe for you.)
Blend this aromatic oil with other warming spice oils and diffuse to brighten any room. Clove is a popular scent in the Fall and Winter seasons, but can actually be blended and used all year round! Cast a spell on your guests with this delightful scent and captivate them as you tell them about your essential oil collection and its myriad of uses.
