Clove – Eugenia caryophyllata

Clove has been used for years in dental preparations, candy, and gum for its flavor and ability to promote oral health, yet it provides a myriad of health benefits. Its main chemical component, eugenol, makes it a very stimulating and energizing essential oil that can promote blood circulation and benefit cardiovascular health. Clove is a powerful antioxidant that can help ward off free radicals and maintain a healthy immune system. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling Clove directly and it should be diluted when applied to the skin. As a cooking spice, Clove adds a spicy flavor to any dish or dessert while providing internal health benefits. One drop of Clove can soothe teeth and gums while maintaining overall oral health.
