Essential oil of Clove oil is extracted from Syzygium aromaticum. Among its chemical constituents is eugenol, responsible for the numbing effect of clove oil when used for toothaches. Clove oil is analgesic (pain relieving) and antiseptic (kills pathogens).
Clove oil may be applied to a tooth with the finger or a cotton ball or Q-tip. When used for application to the skin, it should be diluted in a carrier oil. Personal skin sensitivity will determine the tolerance, but always start with small amounts as Remedy's essential clove oil is in its pure and undiluted state. Try a small amount; start with three drops in a teaspoon of a carrier oil such as grapeseed oil. Internal use of clove oil is recommended only under the supervision of your healthcare professional.
A good pairing for those with dental issues who wish an alternative or complementary way to address dental hygiene is Neem Oil.

Remedy's Neem Oil Infusion is made on the premises and potency is guaranteed.
Oil of clove can be combined with garlic oil to create a cat repellent spray.
