5 Ways to Use Clove

Indian and Chinese medicine used clove to strengthen the skin and relieve skin and digestive conditions. This strong ‘hot’ oil is an immune guard, using its antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties to fortify your body’s natural shield.

The scent of clove is said to help support memory and focus, while relieving depression and fatigue. Being as clove may cause irritation, it?s recommended for use at a higher dilution ratio of 1:4. With caution, use topically, aromatically, or internally. The following are five protocols to help you take advantage of clove’s many benefits.

Athlete’s Foot

The potent antifungal properties of clove essential oil can help rid of skin fungal infections, like Athlete’s Foot. Dilute accordingly with a carrier oil and apply to the area of concern. Alternatively, you can make yourself a foot bath or sock solution. For the foot bath, add two drops of oil to a basin of hot water and soak your feet for 15-20 minutes. For the sock solution, place your socks in the footbath and wear the soaked socks for half an hour. Also, consider adding a drop a piece to each shoe to eliminate contact fungus.

Blood Clots

By stimulating blood flow, clove diminishes the chances of blood clot. Dilute your essential oil accordingly and apply topically over the affected area. You might also place a drop of clove in a glass of drinking water and take internally or diffuse throughout the home.

*Speak with your physician before proceeding with this application.


Clove bud can help relieve diarrhea through topical application. Simply apply, diluted accordingly, over the abdomen, massaging in a counterclockwise motion. You can also take internally by placing a drop in a glass of drinking water.


With its disinfecting range of properties, clove bud is an effective addition to any DIY or commercial cleaning product. Add a few drops to your disinfectant spray or diffuse throughout the home to purify the air.


Protect against infection and speed the process of wound healing by creating a clove bud spray. Simply add 1-2 drops of oil to a spray bottle of distilled water and douse the wound. You can also dilute with a carrier oil and apply topically, if the wound is less sensitive.
