🛑 Attention!!! Clove essential oil is a powerful remedy that should be used with caution. People who are allergic to eugenol must avoid it. Internally you should generally be careful with essential oil and use other options. Pregnant women and children are also not allowed to take it internally or externally!!!

Tincture: It should be taken internally in the same way you would season with cloves: sparingly, in small doses. Larger amounts lead to poisoning.

The essential clove oil is needed for the production of herbal liqueurs, bitters and for the cocktail spice Angostura, just as it is in the perfume and cosmetics industry.

Hildegard von Bingen: If someone has a headache, that the Head buzzes as if he were deaf because he often eats cloves. When hydrophobia begins to grow in a person, he often eats cloves because their power passes into the human intestines. Their strength goes into the marrow of the person who is suffering from foot gout.

Clove essential oil belongs in fragrance lamps, not just at Christmas time, but especially then. It goes well with citrus scents.
