Clove Bud Essential Oil - 15ml
Strong, spicy, woody and penetrating, the aroma of our pure Clove Bud Essential Oil will probably be very familiar to you. Clove Bud Essential Oil owes much of its potent anti-inflammatory and antiseptic benefits to its dominant ingredient, eugenol.
Clove Bud Essential Oil comes from the buds of the clove tree, a native of South East Asian countries such as Indonesia. Mixed with other oils, for example olive and coconut, it’s great as a massage oil. When used in a steam inhaler, it’s known to help ease respiratory infections. In medicinal topical applications pure Clove Bud Essential Oil has also been known to assist in the treatment of wounds, cuts and fungal infections such as athlete’s foot.
Mix clove oil with citrus essential oils to form an effective insect repellent. Plus you can also use it in your existing skin care products to boost their benefits.
Clove Bud Essential Oil blends well with Basil, Cinnamon, Citronella, Lemon, Orange, Peppermint and Rosemary essential oils.
