Clove Essential Oil
We’re going to get into the nitty-gritty of clove essential oil, but let’s start with the obvious… clove, like most essential oils, smells divine and has many benefits.
If you’ve ever opened a bottle 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 properties that make it the perfect addition to your spiritual or intuitive awakening!
And if you want to add some serious amp to your intuition and release fear around your psychic gifts, clove is the high-vibe oil for you.
In this post, I’ll teach you the top five uses for clove oil, how to use it, and which oils blend well with it.
Let’s dig in.
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 I’m not a doctor– seek the advice of a health or holistic practitioner before using essential oils or diffusing around your pets.
Clove Essential Oil Uses
If this divine bottle of aromatherapy 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
- Focus on joy
- Trust our intuition
Here are its best uses:
1. Emotional Clarity
You know those days where nothing seems to lift your spirits… 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 during emotional distress, and help you understand why your spirit is hesitant to be lifted.
In fact, clove has been used for thousands of years (seriously, it’s documented) by people all over the world to support them both spiritually and emotionally.
To hit your “aha” 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 mix it with a carrier oil and massage over your heart or throat 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 meditation, open your bottle of clove oil.
Diffusing clove during meditation will:
- Encourage a deeper connection with your Higher Self
- Clear your mind
- Help you re-center and focus
- Strengthen your intuition
4. Open Blocked Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras
Your chakras are gorgeous energy centers (spinning wheels of colorful energy) that run the length of your spine.
When one or more are closed or off-balanced, you can experience:
- The feeling that people take advantage of you
- Difficulty expressing yourself
- A host of other unpleasant feelings
To use clove to open and balance your chakras:
- Diffuse it, or mix it with a carrier oil, then, apply a little on your heart or solar plexus chakra.
- Next, meditate, relax or journal for 20 minutes. Be sure to set your intention on opening the blocked chakras.
- Now, picture the chakra’s location, and imagine it balancing.
- Last, visualize being able to express yourself clearly, connect with others, and communicate with confidence.
5. Provide Psychic Protection
Empaths can get drained by others’ low vibrations if they don’t practice energetic self-care.
Every morning, I surround myself with white light to help keep a high-vibe, and not absorb negative energy.
But I’ll be the first to admit… Some days are harder than others.
If there is a lot of despair in the news, or a loved one is dealing with a trauma, I break out the big boss: clove essential oil.
During these times:
- Mix 1-part clove oil with 4-parts unscented organic lotion (or carrier oil of your choice).
- Then, apply a little of the salve to your heart chakra, wrists, or behind your ears. As you do this, surround yourself with white light, allowing the oil to kick negative and unwanted energy away.
- You can also do this with an aromatherapy necklace or bracelet, which allow you to benefit from the oil’s properties all day.
How to Use Clove Oil
Here’s how you can reap the benefits of this powerful oil:
- Diffuse. This is my favorite way to use EO’s. All you need to 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. Mix 1-part clove oil with 4-parts carrier oil. Then, massage it over one of your chakras (trust your intuition to tell you which chakra). (Carrier oils can be: Olive oil, Sweet almond oil, coconut oil, argan oil, avocado oil, emu oil, jojoba oil, or unscented lotion. Use organic, cold-pressed oils for maximum purity).
Oils Compatible with Clove Essential Oil
Every EO has a complimentary oil.
If you want to get the most bang for your buck, try mixing clove essential oil with any of these lovely counterparts, then, diffuse:
- Cinnamon oil
- Lаvеndеr (a staple for any essential oil lover)
