Cloves have been regarded as the most venerable of spices since antiquity. In China 266 BC, guests of the Emperor would be required to hold cloves in their mouth when speaking as to bestow a pleasant odor.
As indicated by its name, Clove Leaf essential oil is stilled from the leaves of the Clove tree. Although it shares similar properties to Clove Bud essential oil, Clove Leaf is known to have a higher eugenol content which is responsible for its analgesic properties. Eugenol can be toxic in high doses and as such Clove Leaf and Clove Bud essential oils should be used with care and knowledge. Clove essential oil is utilized extensively in dental care, added in various toothpaste, mouthwashes, and oral medication. Not only does it contain analgesic properties (pain relieving), it also is strongly antimicrobial and antibacterial, a perfect combination for combating toothaches and other teeth related ailments. Apply a drop of clove oil to your toothbrush and feel the tingle as it cleans your teeth. When a drop is added to a pained tooth, it will immediately dull the pain.
Clove leaf essential oil is a versatile oil with a myriad of applications. Clove leaf oil is an excellent addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, dental care, and aromatherapy.
