Natural by Nature Clove Leaf Oil is used for wounds, cuts, fungal infections, athlete's foot and tooth ache.
Clove Leaf Oil contains eugenol and small amounts of eugenol acetate and is often recommended for skin care, especially for acne patients. The effects are best achieved when the oil is used in liquid form and spread on a clean, dry rag. Well known as an excellent remedy for soothing toothache and for tooth and gum infections where a strong antiseptic action is required.
Caution: Clove oil is best used in lower concentrations as it may cause irritation in sensitive people and is best blended with other essential oils in a very low proportion. Not suitable to use on it’s own for massage. It has a strong, hot and spicy aroma.
