Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) is an aromatic spice used by many cultures around the world. Cloves can be anywhere from a half-inch to three-quarters of an inch in length. They generally are composed of 14 percent to 20 percent essential oil. The main chemical component of the oil is eugenol, which is also responsible for clove oil’s strong fragrance. In addition to its common medicinal uses (especially for oral health), eugenol is also commonly included in mouthwashes and perfumes, and it’s also employed in the creation of vanillin.
Clove essential oil is high in antioxidants and has potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, making it effective for a large variety of common health concerns including toothaches and candida. 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. Today clove oil is used as a flavoring component of toothpastes and other medicines.
