Clove essential oil is steam distilled from the stems and buds of the clove plant. It has a warm and spicy scent, even stronger than dried cloves. Depending on the brand, it could be used safely for baking and cooking. Due to the potency, use caution regarding dilution. Other uses include immune system support, respiratory uses, and digestive tract uses. When diffused, it can be uplifting, mentally stimulating and healing.
