5 Amazing Benefits of Clove Essential Oil
Clove Oil has unique benefits and a long history. It’s not a scent just for the holidays although using a diffuser with Clove, Cinnamon, and Bergamot or Orange Essential Oils can conjure up great feelings of joy in any season! In Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, it has a myriad of uses both on its own and in certain formulas. Apart from cooking with Clove, it is customary for many cultures to use its oils, leaves, stems and dried fruits for medicinal purposes. Clove Oil is known for its high anti-microbial, anti-fungal, antiviral, antiseptic and stimulating properties. And as a benefit, good food-grade Clove Oil can be ingested in small amounts!
Clove Oil Benefits:
Clove Oil is great for your Teeth
Due to its strong germicidal properties and a compound called Eugenol, Clove Oil is amazing for toothaches, sore gums, and ulcers. Wash your mouth out with a few drops of Clove Oil and warm water. It is an excellent product to fight bad breath!
Fights Sore Throat, Cough, and Cold
Clove Oil is known for its high anti-inflammatory properties and numbing effects, therefore, it can be effective for sore throat and cough. Clove oil can clear the nasal passage and gives you respite from respiratory problems, but it also has a cooling effect on the nasal cavity and throat.
- To Relieve Cough: Add 2 drops of clove oil and 4 drops of Myrtle Oil to coconut oil. Smooth this mixture over your chest.
- To Relieve a Sore Throat and Boost your Immune System: Add 2 - 3 drops of "food grade" Clove Oil to hot water, and sip slowly!! Gargle each sip for a few moments before swallowing. You can repeat this 3 - 4 times in 24 hours.
Good for your skin
Clove oil is found in all kinds of cosmetics. Because clove oil contains a compound called eugenol which is known for its antibacterial properties it can be very effective in curing acne. Mix 3 drops of The Yama Yoga Store’s pure Clove Oil with your favorite skin cream to help fight signs of aging.
Clove Oil is wonderful for indigestion and stomach related problems. The eugenol in clove is amazingly effective for treating gastric problems like indigestion and stomach bloating. 1 drop of Clove Essential Oil in some warm water can cure those pesky hiccups immediately!
Clove Oil acts as a blood purifier and helps blood circulation. Reducing toxins in the blood can directly affect the efficiency of your immune system, therefore, giving you a boost at any time of the year.
I use Clove Oil in my diffuser and will be especially during the holidays. I have certainly used it for any and all mouth pain! Its numbing effects are second to none, lasts longer and is less expensive than products you may buy over the counter. Try it out and let us know what you think.
