We are going to get into the nitty gritty of clove essential oil, but let’s start with the obvious… clove, like a most essential oils, smells divine.
If you’ve ever opened a bottle of of clove spice while baking (maybe some Pinterest approved lemon clove cookies!), then you know what I’m talking about.
But clove is more than just a lovely smell. It’s packed with spiritual power that makes it the perfect addition to your intuitive or spiritual journey!
In fact, clove has been used for THOUSANDS of years (seriously, it’s documented) by people all over the world to help support them both spiritually and emotionally… So there must be something to it, right?
Let’s chat about why you might want to add clove essential oil to your EO collection if your having a spiritual awakening.
Disclosure: Clove oil is a powerhouse. Before the days of epidurals, clove buds were steeped in wine to ease the pain of childbirth. Yep, that’s power! And since clove oil is SO strong – and obvi, I’m not a doctor and I don’t play one on the internet – seek the advice of a health or holistic practitioner before using clove essential oil or any essential oil.
5 Spiritual Uses for Clove Essential Oil
If you’re ready to add some serious amp to your intuitive game, reach for clove essential oil next time you’re filling up your diffuser.
If clove essential oil had a “message” for us, it would be:
Move forward, make stuff happen, and achieve as much as your spirit can!
This “superhero” oil reminds us to live each day to the fullest, not dwell on the negativity of the past, and focus on joy.
It’s a great spiritual awakening oil!
Clove oil is also said to boost courage, which can be helpful if you’re having hesitation or fear around developing your psychic gifts.
It gives us the confidence we need to step outside of our comfort zones. And like they say, life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Take a peek at how clove essential oil can rock your world:
1. Emotional Clarity:
You know those days where nothing seems to lift your spirits?
Everything is frustrating, even though the birds are singing, the sun is out, and there’s a new episode of Riverdale on tonight, you’re deep in bah humbug land… Look no further than your new BFF clove oil.
Clove is said to provide clarity to emotional distress and help you figure out why your spirit is hesitant to be lifted.
P.S. To hit your “AH-HA” moment, journal while some clove essential oil is running in your diffuser!
2. Personal Boundaries:
We’re all inclined to say, “Sure!” when we really mean, “I’d rather get a cavity filled!” from time to time.
Once again, clove oil is here to save the day. To strengthen personal boundaries, diffuse clove oil or dilute it and massage over your heart chakra.
Now, let someone ask you if you can bake those bake-sale cookies (again!).

3. Deeper Meditation:
If your grocery list, to-do sticky notes, and email inbox simply will not leave you alone during your meditation time, pop open your clove essential oil bottle. Diffusing clove during your meditation will not only encourage a deeper connection with your Higher Self, it will help clear your mind and allow you to recenter and focus.

4. Open Blocked Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras:
Your chakras are gorgeous energy centers (that are “invisible” spinning wheels of color) that run the length of your spine. When one (or more) are closed, you can experience shyness, anxiety, the feeling of being a “pushover”, an inability to self express, and a whole host of unpleasant feelings.
To use clove to open your blocked chakras, diffuse it, or mix it with a carrier oil and apply a little on your heart or solar plexus chakra.
Do this during a meditation or journaling time, and set your intention to open the blocked chakra. Picture the chakras location, and imagine it opening up.
Visualize being able to express yourself clearly, connect with others, and communicate with confidence.
5. Provide Psychic Protection:
Empaths can get drained by other’s low vibes and trials if we don’t practice good energetic self care.
Every morning, I surround myself (and my family) with white light to help keep a high energetic vibe and not absorb negative energies. But some days are harder than others. If there’s a lot of despair in the news, or someone in our close circle is dealing with a traumatic situation, I break out the big boss: clove essential oil.
In cases like this, I like to use a little bit of the oil mixed with unscented organic lotion and rub it on my skin.
You can also do this with a necklace or bracelet built for essential oil carrying. That way, you benefit from the clove oil’s benefits all day! Yay!
As you surround yourself with light, allow the clove to kick negative and unwanted energies to the curb.
BTW: When my kids were little and had nightmares, I’d open a bottle of clove oil and hold it about 6-inches from their nose and let them take a little whiff. This was their “brave” oil.
How to Use Clove Oil
- Diffuse – This is my favorite way to use essential oils. All you do is add 4 – 6 drops of clove oil to an essential oil diffuser with some water (your diffuser will have instructions). The smell of clove will fill the room and you’ll benefit from its properties.
- Massage onto the skin. I use a little bit and ALWAYS dilute it in a carrier oil. Then, I massage the oil over one of my chakras (I simply trust my intuition to tell me which chakra). (Carrier oils can be: Olive oil, Sweet almond oil, coconut oil, argan, avocado, emu, jojoba oil, or unscented lotion. Use organic, cold-pressed oils for maximum purity).
