Young Living Clove Essential OIl

Clove essential oil promotes a healthy immune response, and may support overall wellness*.  Clove essential oil is an important ingredient in Young Living's Thieves, ImmuPower, and Inner Defense formulas.  I like to cook with, diffuse and use clove essential oil in some of my massage blends**.

** Clove is considered a "hot" oil and can cause skin irritation if not diluted.  I follow Dr. Scott Johnson's (an evidence-based practioner) recommendation of diluting clove essential oil to a 1.5% mixture (2 drops clove to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil) when using it in a massage blend.  Young Living's V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex is a great carrier oil.
