1.The clove flower bud and plant stem are steam distilled to produce Clove essential oil. 2. Clove is a potent essential oil and is used often for topical application such as in massage oils and personal care products. We recommend adding a drop or two to your hand lotion to keep your skin moisturized during the drier winter months. 3. Clove essential oil’s inviting aroma pairs amazingly with other oils such as Cinnamon Bark, Grapefruit, Orange, and Nutmeg. 4. It’s an important ingredient in Young Living’s Thieves® and ImmuPower™. 5. On days when your toes are cold and you can’t seem to shake the chill, draw up a warm bath and add a few drops of Clove for its soothing aroma. 6. Add 3–4 drops to water in a glass spray bottle and use it for a homemade air or linen freshener to ready your bedrooms for holiday guests. 7. Combine it with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex and rub it into your neck and back for a rejuvenating massage and uplifting aroma. 8. Combine 2 drops of Clove with 6 drops of Orange and 4 drops of Cinnamon Bark in your diffuser* for a quiet night full of relaxation and gratitude.
