Athletic Applications for Clove Oil

Buy Clove Essential Oil Here!What is the Genus Species? Syzygium aromaticum (scientific name).

From what I have researched, clove also has several synonyms (same name for same plant). These are Eugenia caryophyllata, Eugenia caryophyllus, Caryophyllus aromaticus, Eugenia aromatica and Myrtus caryophyllus.

I have definitely seen Syzygium aromaticum, Eugenia caryophyllata and Eugenia caryophyllus used interchangeably and it does get confusing! 

Why is this information important? Well as you can see it is confusing when different names are used for the same plant. Additionally, there are 400 to 500 species of clove including several chemotypes.

A chemotype (CT) is a designation that tells you that the species has different chemical constituents. This usually occurs because the plant is grown in a different area under a distinct climate that alters the chemistry.

So, it is a good habit of purchasing essential oils using the common name and the genus species.

Where is the name derived from? Clove comes from a Latin word "clavus" meaning "nail".

What is the ORAC Value? 1,078,700 ┬ÁTE/100g WOW!

Why be bothered with this number? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Antioxidants have shown to reduce the risk of age related conditions and cancer! This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Spinach = 1,260; Clove = 1,078,700. 

Most Interesting Historical Reference?

Did you know that Clove is contained in Hildegard's Medicine Book? Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was known as the first herbalist and naturopath of the middle ages. Her book documented over 12,000 remedies for symptoms and diseases.

What are the Plant Properties? Anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiparasitic, anti-aging, antioxidant, analgesic, anti-tumoral, anticoagulant, hemostatic (Blood Thinning) immune stimulant anticonvulsant, disinfectant, stomach protectant (ulcers) and warming.

What are the Documented Clove Uses and Benefits? Anti-aging, numbing pain, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and rheumatism, infections (skin, flu, bacterial, viral and fungal, hepatitis, parasitic), digestive problems (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), ulcers, inflammation, cataracts, lice, poison oak, acne, wounds, lupus, insect bites and stings, skin cancer, thyroid dysfunction, smoking (stop) and warts.

What is the Aromatic Affect on the Mind? Its hot and spicy aroma improves memory and assists in healing!

 clove can help us in this respect. It helps us reflect on the causes of our pain and assists us in releasing them because they no longer serve us! By the way, this is why I like that Clove is in PanAway Essential Oil Blend.

What Chakra is Affected? Solar plexus, heart and throat chakra.

What is the corresponding Chakra Color? Deep Blue or Indigo.

How do I use it?

Use diluted - 20:80 dilution (one part essential oil: four part of vegetable oil). Then,

Clove Essential Oil

  • Apply several drops (2-4) on location
  • Apply to chakras/vitaflex points
  • Diffuse, or
  • May be used as a dietary supplement.

Athletic Appication: Because of its Hemodilating (Blood Vessel Dilating), Pain relieving and energizing properties Clove can be used as a pre-workout. Dilute  1 drop of Clove with 10 drops Olive Oil. Clove is very hot and may sting when placed on the skin. Massage into Targeted Muscle group for Muscle Soreness Prevention, Clove will flush out the buildup of lactic acid , thus delaying muscle fatigue, and preventing most all of the Muscle Soreness associated with post workouts, especially the "Day After+2nd Day After!" Clove is found in Panaway blend which works better than just Clove alone.  

What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils when wanting healing results! Because it is approved as a Food Additive (FA) by the FDA, food grade clove oil is readily available on the market. Please remember, these are not the same oils and are often adulterated (changed).

Clove is considered non-toxic at normal usage levels and is generally regarded as safe (GRAS). Can cause extreme skin irritation therefore dilution is recommended.

Although it may be used as a dietary supplement, it is advised not to use it in this manner for children under 6 years of age.

This is considered an anti-coagulant. As such, it may enhance the effects of blood thinners (aspirin, Warfarin, heparin, etc)
