The name clove is derived from the Latin clavus, which means nail, aptly describing the round head and short stem of the clove bud. The clove has been used traditionally for thousands of years for its numerous aromatherapeutic, medicinal, culinary and decorative uses.
One of the most noteworthy and prized qualities of Clove Essential Oil is its tremendous level of antioxidants On the ORAC* rating scale, Clove takes the lead with a score of over 10 million! Blueberries, one of the highest-rated ORAC foods, have a score of 2400, and that’s not small, yet just one drop of Clove oil provides more than 400 times that amount.
Clove mixes well with cinnamon, clary sage, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, myrrh, nutmeg, orange, palmarosa, rose, sandalwood, tangerine, tea tree, and ylang ylang. Maximum concentration for topical use of Clove Essential Oil mixed with a carrier oil should be 0.5% (to achieve, mix one drop of Clove Essential Oil in 2 teaspoons of a carrier oil).
Diffusing Clove Essential Oil into the air helps to minimize airborne germs. The spicy aroma has also been found to reduce irritability, and assist memory recall. For a cheering winter blend, try mixing Clove, Cassia, and Orange oils in a diffuser or add drops to water in a spray bottle.
Clove Essential Oil also makes a great addition to a homemade mouthwash. Apart from keeping the mouth clean, a drop of clove oil placed on the roof of the mouth can also help to relieve a headache.
Like Cassia, Clove also works to warm the hands and feet by stimulating circulation in the body. A liniment with Clove Essential Oil can be used to ease muscle discomfort. And in sick seasons, Clove is miracle worker, fighting germs, viruses and bacteria.
And last, but not least, try putting cotton balls dipped in Clove Essential Oil into your pantry, cupboards or linen closet to act as a bug repellent. You’ll get a pleasantly pungent aroma to boot! Add a citrus oil to change up the scent and increase the repelling power.

Clove Essential Oil should NOT be used with any child under the age of two years.

I bought this during the winter months to use in my diffuser. It mixes well and gives a warm, spicy holiday feel with orange and cinnamon. Not to mention the germ killing properties. You can't go wrong. I have also used in a base of coconut oil to help relieve sore gums. It's a winner!
We love to use a drop of this oil with our coconut oil for oil pulling and gargling, which we like to do when we feel a sore throat coming on. It seems to really be effective. We also use it in our toothpaste and homemade cleaners!
I love this essential oil, I use it in my homemade toothpaste and I haven't had a cavity in 10 years! Before I made the switch to homemade toothpaste I had at least one cavity every time I went to the dentist, so this is a huge improvement!
I use this oil as part of my 'thieves' recipe. I diffuse this around the clock when there is sickness in the house or when I know someone is visiting who has been sick. I also highly dilute it and put it in handsoap for purifying hands- works great!!
I use clove oil in my own "thieves" recipe. This is a quality product at a very affordable price in a size that keeps me from having to reorder as frequently. I also love the fact that you have added the GC MS testing report. I am a repeat customer and will continue to be.
I have used this oil aromatically, as a freshener for my laundry (mixed in with the detergent), and as a teething aid for our 7 month old. I also applied this with a q tip to the back of my throat when it was really sore, to clean and help speed up the healing process. Versatile; highly recommend.

This oil does wonders for sore throats!! The smell isn't the greatest, but the results are worth it! I'll often rub behind my ears down to my throat area and within a few hours feel a difference. Definitely worth it!
Moderator’s Note: All essential oils, especially “hot” oils such as Clove, should be well diluted in a carrier oil before applying to the skin to avoid the possibility of severe skin damage or other sensitization.
One drop of this oil, combined with a 1/2 tsp of carrier oil (I use Jojoba) and 2 drops of lavender essential oil serves as an effective pain reliever when applied to the lower back area. For intense pain, I add one drop each of the following essential oils: eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree oil.
I have used this oil to make my own 'thieves" blend. I use it every day on the bottom of my feet. I truly believe it helps with my immunity from colds and sickness. I have also used it with water to swish in my mouth as a natural mouthwash. it is strong and it feels like it is working.
Clove Oil is one of the essential oils that I use in my homemade "Thieve's Oil" mix, and my husband can tell a significant difference when he uses it for immune support. I appreciate Beeyoutiful's commitment to quality and affordable prices.
If your looking for an aroma that is out of this world just add some of this clove essential oil and cassia essential oil with some vanilla to your favorite diffuser. I just love the smell of clove in the morning.
Both my daughter and I had an unsightly wart on our hand. I was looking for a natural alternative to over-the-counter wart removers. One drop of clove oil applied daily not only got rid of the wart, but left us with beautiful new skin underneath. Amazing!
Your essential oils are the best! I use them to scent my own lotions/face creams/deodorants for my shop. They give my products a wonderful, fresh scent. The quality of scent that your oils have is above and beyond most other essential oil brands on the market, and your price is wonderful!
Your clove oil is wonderful and I use it often in my "sugar and spice" blends for my products. Thank you!
Beeyoutiful's clove essential oil is the best quality of clove oil we have found! My daughter used it on her wrist when she tore a ligament and it relieved the soreness. I use it on my gums for my toothache, and add it to my homemade mouthwash for a fresh scent and for speading up healing of mouth ulcers.
Heavily diluted for teething pain! This oil is STRONG. When diluted, the mild analgesic effect has helped take the edge off my baby's pain. But careful! Clove can be stinging, painful, and/or numbing if not diluted heavily.
I am dealing with Lyme Disease and several other health issues. Some of these cause a constant cough. I use clove oil in my diffuser almost daily. I instantly get relief from the cough and I breathe better.
I tried an experiment for our kids esp. for my daughter as she had constant vaginal yeast and other candida symptoms. I poured 1 tsp. liquid chorophyll added 3 drops grapefruit seed extract, stirred it around and then added 1 drop clove oil and 1 drop oregano oil and told the kids to lift up their head while I drop the spoonful down their throat (this avoids it burning their lips and tongue). We did this every morning on an empty stomach and after three wks. all of the vaginal yeast is gone, gone, gone. She has had buildup every day for years, and now there is not even a trace. I check every day, and there is nothing. Her other symptoms went away too. I had tried probiotics and other things, but nothing seems to work like this.
A little bit goes a long way. This I learned the hard way - I don't see myself buying another bottle of this for a very long time, since you do not need to use very much at all. Great in the diffuser to have the smell through the house quickly.
This wonderful clove oil is priced just right. Much less than other excellent oils and I see no difference! I use clove for all kinds of things, from air diffused, massage, cleaners, etc. I even place a cotton ball with a few drops of clove oil in my vacuum cleaner, when cleaning. No yucky vacuum cleaner smell! We love it!
So thankful we had this on hand when our teen recently had two teeth extracted and an underdeveloped adult tooth cut out. Whenever his gums "kind of" hurt, I put a drop of clove in a little bit of water, he swished it around for about 10 seconds, spit it out, and the discomfort was gone. It numbed his gums just enough to keep him comfortable all day. Plus, I had the extra reassurance of knowing his mouth was being kept clean as it healed. In the past, I've also put a drop on a Q- Tip and swabbed the spot after he's lost a tooth. Clove oil makes losing teeth so much more painless, I think it's a must have for parents.
I will never go without having clove oil in my cupboard....it has been a life saver to me. I have a very weak immune system and my husband health is strong. So when strep throat was passing around I immediately began putting a drop or two of clove oil in my glass of water every time I took a drink. My husband did not do this. Although his body was more healthy and mine weaker, he got strep throat, and mine was held at bay. I felt the vicious onset of symptoms, but that's as far as it got. I am convinced clove oil was my prevention. I went through 1/2 a bottle during that month, but it was SO worth it!!!! I think this needs to be a staple item in every household.
My husband was bit on his hand by a cat and by evening it was so painful and swollen that he said he didn't think he'd be able to sleep that night. I made an herbal mixture with honey and plenty of your Clove oil and spread it over his hand and wrapped it up for the night. Well, he slept soundly and early the next morning the swelling was down and he said the pain was completely gone! It is a wonderful product!
I have always used clove oil for dental. We use it for sore gums, absesses and cavities. A new use I have tried is on my husband's corns. It seems to be working great and getting rid of them. I also just love the smell of close in my diffuser around the holidays!
Our family loves the aroma of Clove oil any time of year, but especially around the winter holidays when we increase the portion of clove and cassia. It is a great germ fighter for the cold and flu season when used in the diffuser. It is a favorite for its wound healing benefits and for an addition to a carrier oil to rub on sore muscles or joints. I only use Beeyoutiful essential oils for their purity. Thanks!
We had a terrrible time this year with yellow jackets-in our BEDROOM! I rolled over one night and got a nasty sting on the palm of my hand. 3 days later my hand was still hugely swollen, itchy, painful and useless. My friend brought me a essential oil blend she made from lavender, tea tree and clove. 2 sprays and instant relief! She visited and left with her little bottle of spray and soon I was in pain again. Nothing to fear, whip up a little mix (make sure to add the clove!) and ahhhh back to sanity. Lavender is great for pain but nothing beats the combination of clove and lavender. A little goes a long way. It is also our best friend with teething babies and sore or infected gums.
I put about 3 or 4 drops of the Clove Essential Oil on the cardboard holder on the paper towels in the kitchen. The aroma is very refreshing and longlasting. Every time I go to the sink I smell that wonderful aroma.
My 9 yr old daughter had been having stomach pain and nausea (no vomiting) for a week. We had gone to the ER, the doctor twice, and all they could come up with was constipation (which she wasn't). I was so afraid they were missing appendicitis! We were praying for wisdom and guidance on what to do. I was about to take her to the ER again, but decided to try some additional oils before going. I had only used my clove in the diffuser, but read that it could be used internally as well. So, I began having her sip on water with a few drops of clove oil. I also diluted it in a carrier and began to rub it on her abdomen. We increased her tummy tune up dosage as well. Within about 2 hours she was beginning to feel better and asking to eat some yogurt! Within 24 hours she was back to her old self! I still don't know what the source of the pain was, but am convinced the clove and tummy tune up were the cure! I am grateful to God for you and your products!
I knew that Clove Oil was used for tooth infections and mouth sores, but had never heard that it could be used as a numbing agent for toothaches. My 18 month old was getting molars in that had kept us up for HOURS for three nights straight. I read about someone using Clove Oil and tried it. In just a short amount of time, her countenance improved and she slept that entire night. Wow.
When an oil is not to be used for children under two does that primarily mean topically? Can I lightly diffuse it? I mean kind of like the scent a candle would give off - not something strong like in a steam tent or anything.
Question by: Daniel and Beth Gass on Sep 16, 2018 2:14:00 PM
Hello! Yes, it does mean topically as well as diffusing. Safe usage guidelines for essential oils are a controversial subject and you will find a lot of different opinions out there. We tend to err as much on the side of safety and cautious use guidelines as possible. If you choose to diffuse clove with a 2-year-old or under in age be sure to do your personal research and if at all possible seek the guidance of a clinical aromatherapist familiar with your child and family health history.

How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?
Question by: Laura Price on May 31, 2017 10:11:00 AM
We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.

Is the clove oil food grade? I want to use it in hard candy.
Question by: Melanie Taylor on Dec 26, 2016 9:17:00 AM
Our clove oil is 100% pure and you can review the gcms batch report for verification by clicking the gc ms report tab at the top of each of our essential oil product descriptions. We do not however certify any of our oils as being food grade. Essential oils are many times more potent than flavoring oils and extracts and are volatile and should only be used internally at dosages, dilutions and under circumstances overseen on a case by case basis by a certified aromatherapist.
