We source only pure essential oils.

Clove Bud Essential Oil is a known sensitizer.  Because of this, we suggest diffuser usage over topical when possible.  It is known to numb nerves.  It blends well with a lot of oils and is often enjoyed with citrus oils, especially during the holiday season and winter in general — it's good when needing immunity boosts.  We really like the scent, but use in moderation.  Too much will overpower your diffuser blend and can irritate your nasal passages . . . so go with a drop at a time here.

Max topical use is 0.5%.  This is equivalent to approximately 1 drop of Clove Bud essential oil in 10mL of carrier!  Dilute appropriately.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in fractionated coconut oil.

Clove Bud Essential Oil Safety Info

Tisserand and Young recommend a dermal a limit of 0.5%.  Clove bud essential oil may inhibit blood clotting, may contain methyleugenol, may cause embryotoxicity, may cause skin sensitization, and may irritate mucous membranes. Avoid if you are taking pethidine, MAOIs or SSRIs, anticoagulant medication (blood thinners), having major surgery, have a peptic ulcer, have hemophilia or other bleeding disorders, are hypersensitive, or have diseased or damaged skin.  Do not use with children under 2 years of age.  Clove Bud essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Clove Bud essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
