and quite an array of benefits and uses for preppers.Clove oil is

Benefits and Uses of Clove oil
Clove bud oil is a warm and spicy oil that has a variety of
medicinal uses. It's potent, but also extremely useful! A
wonderful addition to your
dental medic kit, the warm, pungent
oils of clove have served historically for digestive, dental and skin

Here's how to use clove around the homestead:

Clove oil use #1: Mitigating Toothaches.
The top use of clove bud oil is for relieving a toothache! Clove oil
is an excellent remedy until you can reach medical help. Clove
bud oil is a natural painkiller and an active ingredient of
commercial products for toothaches. The active ingredient is
eugenol otherwise known as clove oil. Applied topically, clove oil
helps numb to ease dental pain. It helps with inflammation and
you can use it as a local anesthetic for toothaches and more.

It's not without extreme caution that you use
clove oil for tooth
aches, but used properly it can provide the necessary relief as a
dental aid in crisis
when a dentist isn't available. Clove bud oil
desensitizes the nerve endings to release pain, but again it's
important to understand that high concentrations can be
dangerous in some individuals.

    bud oil externally is especially important as most essential
    oils on the market are not intended for internal use. You'll
    want to dilute clove bud oil with your favorite carrier oil and
    then massage it on the outer jaw. Never use clove oil
    directly on the gums undiluted it may aggravate the
    condition further and may lead to toxicity. It's better to use
    a toothache kit, which includes the natural eugenoil, pictured
    right. It's a very potent formula and not for children and it's
    important to order it well before you need it because a
    toothache can strike at any time. In an emergency, you can
    dilute a food grade clove bud oil with olive oil on a Q-tip to
    relieve pain. A caveat is that if it's over used clove oil can
    become increasingly toxic. Use this method only with
    extreme caution. Consult Mercola regarding the safety of
    clove bud oil.

Clove oil Use #2: Diabetic support.
Another major use of clove oil is for if you are at risk for diabetes.
Use clove oil for Type II diabetes, but be sure to talk with our
doctor as it can reduce blood sugar levels rather drastically. Think
of clove bud oil as a pre-diabetic solution. Clove bud oil may
reduce enzymes in the pancreas linked to diabetes, but there's
more it can do to support diabetes.

Here's how clove bud oil can help support diabetes:

  • Boost mood and circulation. Clove bud oil is stimulating and
    energizing. If you're feeling a little down, clove bud oil can
    refresh your attitude by diffusing it or applying clove bud oil
    drops to the pads of a diffuser necklace. Combine it with
    cinnamon for a spicy attitude readjustment. Clove bud oil
    can also boost sex drive as it arouses and boosts blood

Clove oil use #3: ward off insects.
Clove bud oil is a potent way to ward off insects. On contact,
clove bud oil can dehydrate the exoskeleton of insects causing
quick dehydration and death to insects. It may dehydrate insects,
but it won't dehydrate you! It pairs well with citrus. Dr. Mercola
suggest using clove oil in tandem with citrus essential oils, like
orange essential oil, to ward of the bugs, particularly mosquitoes:

  • Ants. As an insect repellent, clove bud oil naturally repels
    ants as does cinnamon oil. When the ants come marching in,
    add the drops in their path and at the entryways where they
    tend to surface each year before the rains come. Here are
    more ways to get rid of ants naturally.

  • Bed bugs and lice. Make sure the bed bugs don't bite and
    deter lice by misting clove bud oil on your sheets.

  • Mosquitoes. To use clove bud oil to ward off mosquitoes, be
    sure to dilute this powerful oil using rubbing alcohol or witch
    hazel and into a spray bottle. By night you can also use a
    diffuser with a few drops of water.

Clove oil use #4: Warding off seasonal illness.
Clove bud is known for easing pain and warding off seasonal
illness to help relieve asthma, cough and cold, and sinusitis,
which is why it's one of the main ingredients of
Thieves oil.  
Clove oil can also be diffused as immune-boosting remedy and it
smells so good particularly around the holidays.

Clove bud oil is a powerful antioxidant. Behind only clove oil, is
cinnamon essential oil, which can protect your body against free
radical damage and is great to use in tandem to ward off
seasonal illness.

Clove bud oil is famously part of
thieves oil blend of essential oils
used to
ward off the plague. As the story goes, there were
thieves who routinely robbed plague victims and lived to tell
about their secret concoction, which included clove bud oil in the
recipe. Today it's used as a folk remedy, but there is scientific
backing that says clove bud oil is effective at warding off illness,
namely in dealing with influenza. Essential oil of clove bud
significantly attenuates influenza virus.

As an antibiotic, clove essential oil is a botanical alternative
worth considering. It's an active ingredient in Fresh green black
walnut wormwood complex, which helps treat parasites.
It's well known for its ability to ward off seasonal illness as part
of the blend, but on it's own it's also extremely potent for a
variety of uses:

infection or a yeast infection. Eugenol, a compound in clove
essential oil is considered an efficient antifungal agent according
to a study published
The National Institutes of Health have identified several
essential oils with anti-viral properties
. "Essential oils have great potential
in the field of biomedicine as they effectively destroy several
bacterial, fungal, and viral pathogens," according to one study
published in 201

uses from athletes foot to warts:

    extremely useful combatant against cancer as candida can be

  • Clove bud oil is an antiparasitic.  Because clove oil is
    effective at eliminating candida, it's also effective as an
    antiparasitic. Clove oil effectively kills off parasites and
    other invading organisms, according to Dr. Josh Axe. Here's
    more on how to use clove bud oil as part of a parasite
    cleanse. As a reminder, use extreme caution when taking
    clove bud oil internally, as too much can cause certain side
    effects. Consult your naturopathic doctor or practitioner.

    cause intestinal discomfort, primarily in children.

    and inviting atmosphere in the cold months with a few drops
