Clove is a very warm, spicy and aromatic oil. Clove is stimulating to the mind, enhances concentration and can act as an aphrodisiac. It blends well with lavender, bergamot, orange, vanilla, vetiver, ylang ylang and other florals. It can help sweeten some medicinal smelling blends. Clove oil is a great oil for potpourris and other home fragrance products. Clove is irritating to the skin and mucous membranes, so extreme care should be taken when using on the skin. It must be diluted to less than .75%.
Avoid during pregnancy and do not use on babies or young children. Extreme care should be taken when using on the skin.
