Frequently used in traditional oral health, clove bud offers a number of versatile health benefits.
For instance, the oil possesses natural hygiene supporting properties that help protect the gums and teeth. The oil, too, supports heart health by boosting blood circulation.
This is largely due to its high eugenol content. Moreover, clove bud is high in antioxidants, which combat free radicals in the body, allowing it to support the immune system and overall bodily functions.
The oil’s strong energizing properties, along with its natural ability to protect, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when your immune system has taken a hit.
Add a drop to your toothbrush before the paste to supplement oral health. Relieve toothaches or gum sensitivity with a drop of clove applied to the area of concern.
For immune system health, put 2 drops of clove bud in a veggie capsule and take internally. You can also use clove bud to soothe your throat by adding a drop to the back of the tongue.
General Methods of Application

Always dilute the oil with a carrier oil. Avoid touching the eyes, ears, and other sensitive areas with the oil. People who are nursing, pregnant, or are receiving medical attention should consult their physician before use. Additionally, make sure to store the oil away from children.
