Clove Leaf Essential Oil:Clove Bud is a numbing agent that was used for treating tooth aches (applied directly to the sore tooth). Though it is a numbing agent when applied to skin, the aroma therapeutic qualities of this oil also make it a stimulant, helping with fatigue, depression and potentially as an aphrodisiac. Clove Oil smells like the spice and it is a wonderful blending oil. Clove has long been used in connection with respiratory ailments such as asthma and bronchitis (breathed in over a steam bath).
Clove Oil is a well known irritant and skin sensitizer. It should never be used on the skin directly or even in rates over 1% in leave on products. Please do not use use Clove Oil if you are on blood thinners.
Since this oil often causes skin irritation, we do not recommend using Clove Leaf essential oil in lotion or other leave-on products.
