Clove oil is a treasure trove of health benefits. It is of great importance in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine where it is known for its anti-microbial, anti-fungal, antiviral, antiseptic and stimulating properties.  It is often used as a remedy for toothache and other oral conditions. Clove has immense benefits, courtesy of the presence of a chemical compound called eugenol. You can also apply this oil to your skin and mucous membranes. So if you’re wondering how to make this oil at home, here is a quick recipe!
