Aroma: This a wonderful warm, exotic, spicy, and sweet essential oil that can be used as a top or middle note in most blends. This is a very playful aroma for a hot oil and does not have a harsh smell at all.
Personal notes: I just love using this oil during the holidays in warming blends or those that support circulation. It can also make a wonderful addition to blends that promote self confidence.
Safety Data: Non-toxic. May cause skin and mucous membrane irritation or sensitization. Avoid using Clove with children 2 or under or on any sensitive or damaged skin. Eugenol (Clove) is a potent prostaglandin inhibitor, and should be avoided by people with significant renal (kidney) disease. Eugenol is not contraindicated for pregnancy, however, because of the antiplatelet aggregation activity, it’s cautioned against breastfeeding, as it could pass into breast milk.
