Product Description

Warm your soul and soothe your body with the comforting scent of Clove Bud Essential Oil. Steam distilled from the flower buds of the Clove plant, this essential oil has a spicy, sweet, warm aroma that’s also floral and earthy. It’s grounding, uplifting, and creates a cozy atmosphere in any space.

A rich source of a natural plant compound called eugenol, Clove Bud essential oil offers antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory healing benefits. When used topically with a carrier oil, it serves as a warming analgesic that relaxes away muscle tension, pain, and swelling. It’s also used to treat minor cuts and scrapes, bug bites, rashes, and fungal infections like athlete’s foot.

When diffused or inhaled, Clove Bud essential oil benefits for aromatherapy include calming anxious thoughts, lifting depression and brain fog, and inspiring emotional stability. The distinct scent of Clove Bud often calls to mind pumpkin spice lattes and comfy, cozy autumn evenings. This essential oil is always popular in fall blends, but it’s perfect any time of year.

You can also use Clove Bud essential oil in skincare, haircare, home cleaning products, and DIY projects like candles and soap making. Many people also dilute Clove Bud with a carrier oil, then gently dab on the back of the neck or pulse points to carry its delightful scent throughout the day.

NOTE: Clove Bud is a “hot” oil that may cause irritation in sensitive individuals. Always perform a dermal patch test prior to extensive topical use by applying a small amount of oil to one area of the skin and waiting 15 minutes to see if allergic reaction or sensitivity occurs. Do not use it with heating pads or hot water bottles.

Tips for Safer Diffusing:

  • Diffuse in an open, well-ventilated area.

Clove Bud Essential Oil FAQ

  • Is Clove Bud oil the same as Clove Oil?

    No. Although they are both from the Clove plant, Clove Bud oil and Clove oil are extracted from different parts: Clove Bud comes from the bud of the plant’s flower, while Clove comes from its leaves. As a result, each essential oil has different benefits and aromas. 

    Clove Bud oil has a stronger, brighter, and more floral scent that makes it more beneficial for aromatherapy and cleaning products. Clove oil, on the other hand, has a higher concentration of a medicinal compound called eugenol that makes it more useful in topical skincare products. However, both essential oils are anti-inflammatory, promote healing, and support the immune system.

  • Can you use Clove Bud oil for toothache?

    While Clove Bud essential oil helps relieve pain and swelling, it should not be ingested or used orally. If you have a toothache, dilute Clove Bud oil with a carrier oil and gently massage it into your cheek or along the jawline, but avoid getting it in your mouth and do not apply directly to the teeth or gums. If pain worsens or persists, contact your dentist right away.

  • How do you use Clove Bud oil for toenail fungus?

    To use antifungal Clove Bud essential oil benefits, dilute it with a carrier oil and apply directly to the affected area 1-3 times daily until your toenail fungus has been treated. You can also use Clove Bud oil for toenail fungus preventably by massaging it into the toes and soles of the feet if you believe you have been exposed to fungus or mold. We recommend using Clove Bud oil to prevent fungal infections if you are traveling or frequently use public showers, gyms, or spas.

  • What are some Clove Bud essential oil benefits for mood?

    Clove Bud essential oil benefits for mood include reducing anger and irritability, lowering anxiety, and uplifting depression or loneliness. The earthy, spicy-sweet aroma of Clove Bud oil creates a cozy and comforting atmosphere that promotes emotional stability and safety. If you feel stressed or burned out, Clove Bud can help you release noisy thoughts and feel more grounded and mindful. It’s also great for enhancing meditation, allowing you to attain a deeper state of tranquility and peace.
