For example, place a single drop of Clove oil in two ounces of water and gargle for a soothing effect. You can also add a drop of Clove to your toothbrush before adding toothpaste, which will promote clean teeth and fresh breath. For an extra clean feeling, apply one drop of Clove oil to your teeth and gums after your six-month appointment with your dentist.

Clove is also known as the oil of boundaries. Use this essential oil to support you when you need to let go of a victim mentality. Clove oil helps you stand up for yourself, be proactive, and feel capable of making your own decisions.

To use aromatically for Clove’s energetics, inhale from the bottle or diffuse. If you would like to use topically, dilute with carrier oil and apply on bottoms of feet or over sacral chakra (lower stomach).
