Clove oil is nature’s most powerful antioxidant. For example, blueberries on the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) scale scored a 2,800. In comparison, clove oil on the ORAC scale scored 1,078,000. It is derived from a flower bud, and it is extracted from the bud using steam distillation. If your child has pain from teething or you are suffering with a toothache, clove has been used for centuries to help. It is also beneficial in helping with skin infections, digestive issues, and many more uses. Clove oil is a hot oil meaning that it needs to be diluted. Dilute it at a one to one ratio with another oil like coconut oil to help reduce potency.
