Clove Always Reminds Me of Toothache Remedies
And, that is one thing you can do with clove oil. Put a drop on a Q-tip and put it on a sore tooth/gum to numb the pain.
It’s also helpful in controlling pain due to arthritis and sciatica.
Clove can also be added to blends to aid digestion.
One of my favorite things to do with clove oil is to blend it with one of the pine/fir oils and diffuse it for the holidays.
For colds & flu prevention use at a 1% dilution, 5-6 drops per ounce of carrier oil or lotion. Combine with other oils such as Ravintsara, Pine, Sandalwood, Lavender and Ginger when a cold is coming on. Aromatics.com
Safety: May cause skin and mucous membrane irritation.
Avoid use in children
Clove is a prostaglandin inhibitor and should not be used by people with significant kidney disease. (Prostaglandin causes pain, clove blocks that)
Do not use if breastfeeding as it decreases blood clotting ability and could be passed to the infant.
Shelf life: 3-4 years when stored appropriately
