descriptionUpdate 8/21/11: The price of this EO has skyrocketed due to world market conditions and a shortage of this crop. Ours is not cheap, crude clove oil, it is steam distilled clove leaf oil which has a strong, spicy and penetrating aroma. BEWARE!! If you see this oil priced inexpensively at this time, chances are you will not be purchasing pure, steam distilled clove leaf oil.
Clove leaf has a higher eugenol content (85/87%) than clove bud and should never be used directly on the skin or in large concentrations. It's excellent as an antiseptic because of the high proportion of eugenol. Clove oil is highly irritating to the skin and must be well diluted.
This EO helps stimulate digestion, restores appetite and relieves flatulence. The dental value of cloves is well know, the oil has been traditionally used to relieve toothaches. Clove oil is not used in skin care except to treat infectious wounds, skin sores and leg ulcers by knowledgeable persons. Beneficial to the digestive system, effective against diarrhea, vomiting and spasms in a well-diluted massage blend. May help toothache, rheumatism, arthritis and mouth sores. Blends well with basil, cinnamon, citronella, orange and peppermint. Flash point: 200F.

I put this in my homemade toothpaste along with cinnamon EO. It gives it a little extra "kick" and is great for gums. A little certainly goes a long way!

Strong Clove bud scent with a hint of leaf
Slightly greener and still so strong and spicy. You don't need a ton of this stuff. I can tell its concentrated and high quality. Great!

Spicy and sweet
Very distinct clove smell, warm and spicy; it reminds me of Christmas. Adds a masculine touch to CP soaps, I use it often in shaving soaps because it has a natural mildly numbing effect on the skin. Also makes a nice complementary scent in Pine Tar soap, which is hard to add fragrance to since the piney smell is so strong.

you can only use it in small quantities due to it's strength. fortunately, you'll only need a small amount as clove essential oil goes a long way. i especially like to mix it with other spice oils like black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
