About Clove Essential Oil
Clove oil is extremely warming, like it’s culinary cousin cinnamon, and has many of the same functions in aromatherapy. Applied topically in extremely low dilution and with the help of other oils, clove oil assists in restoring ease and comfort to tired, fatigued or overworked bodies.
This stimulating oil can be used for increasing the appetite. Also when used in vapor therapy it can assist with common and passing troubles caused by a cold, wet winter. Clove’s familiar aroma will help establish the comfort and ease of home and hearth when diffused.
Clove oil has long held a place in Traditional Chinese Medicine, where it is used in conditions of cold due to a deficiency of yang energy. Because of clove oils extremely heating nature, any aromatherapist will use it cautiously.
