HOW TO USE

Essential oils have the natural ability to heal, soothe, and stimulate. With antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties, essential oils have a wide variety of uses.

Sniff essential oils right from the bottle for an instant pick-me-up, to relive anxiety, or to induce relaxation. Add to carrier oil, such as jojoba, and use in a soothing massage. Place a few drops in diffuser to eliminate household odors. Add to cleaning products for more antibacterial and antimicrobial power. During cold and flu season, diffuse daily to stimulate immunity. Mix with carrier oil and apply to the skin to heal wounds. Add a drop or two to your face serum and apply daily to and protect skin against the signs of aging.

Before applying to skin, do a patch test.

How to patch test – Wash, clean, and dry the area on your upper arm near the crook of your elbow. Apply small amount of essential oil and cover with a bandage. Leave the bandage on for 24 hours, then remove and check for irritation. If skin looks clear and there is no reaction after the allotted test time, the oil is presumably safe to use. If you feel irritation at any time duringthe test, remove bandage and wash area with soap and water.


Clove Essential Oil

Once revered by ancient Chinese, ancient Persians, and Europeans, clove essential oil has, sadly, experienced a sharp decline in popularity. It is high time that we once again embrace this essential oil as it is packed with various benefits.

Thus, today, we will be exploring clove essential oil in details and we will be covering everything from the basics about the essential oil to its many benefits that we talked about above.

What is Clove Essential Oil Made Of?

Clove essential oil is derived from the clove tree — also known as Syzygium aromaticum. This tree is native to the Malaku Islands (or the Moluccas) in Indonesia but, today, you can find clove trees growing in other places, too.

An evergreen that grows up to between 32 and 39 feet, the clove tree thrives in a humid climate. A hardy plant, the clove tree has large green leaves and clustered crimson flowers. These flowers (or buds) initially have a pale hue, which gradually turns green, and then, finally, turn bright red when they are ready for harvest. Upon drying, the flowers transition to a deep red-brown.

How is Clove Essential oil Extracted?

Clove essential oil is produced by steam distilling the dried buds collected from the clove tree. In some cases, other parts of the tree — such as the stem and leaves — may also be used.

Certain clove essential oil is extracted via water distillation instead of steam distillation. This is to lower the percentage of eugenol (a naturally-occurring chemical found in cloves) in the essential oil. However, this is not that common and the preferred method of extraction remains steam distillation.

Benefits of Clove Essential Oil

1.     Boosts immune system

If you ever find yourself in need of a little restorative stimulant for your immune system, clove essential oil is it. Its power antioxidant properties help to fight free radicals that cause various ailments.

Besides that, the essential oil’s antibacterial and antiviral properties also come in handy in helping to boost the immune system to prevent and fight off cold and flu. It is really no wonder, then, why clove essential oil’s popularity surges drastically during cold and flu season.

2.     Treats and relieves respiratory problems

Eugenol, a chemical in clove essential oil, has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. This ensures that the oil works perfectly as a natural remedy for respiratory problems such as cough and sore throat. On top of that, the oil acts as a natural expectorant to clear the respiratory passage, too.

To help to alleviate respiratory afflictions with clove essential oil, the best way to go about it is via steam inhalation. Heat up some water to boiling point and then remove from heat. Next, pour the water into a large bowl and add three to four drops of the oil to the water. Cover your head and the bowl with a towel. Make sure that the steam is not so hot that it burns your face. Then, inhale the hot steam for approximately ten minutes.

Besides that, clove essential oil’s warming properties are sure to help to provide a little respite from the constant hacking cough, too. To relieve and cure pesky cough, make yourself a mixture of clove essential oil and honey.

3.     Promotes Good Digestive Health

Clove essential oil has long been used to ease stomach upset and other digestive problems including indigestion, diarrhea, bloating, and flatulence. For some quick relief, massage a few drops of the essential oil into your abdomen area. Alternatively, dilute a couple of drops of the oil in water and drink it.

Apart from that, research has also shown that clove essential oil has the ability to stimulate mucus production — an important gastro-protective factor. What this does is that it helps to protect the gastrointestinal tract as well as prevent the formation of ulcers and gastritis.

4.     Fights infection

As clove essential oil is packed with antiseptic properties, it can be used to prevent infection. It can treat things like cuts, wounds, scabs, fungal infections, athlete’s foot, bruises, and even insect bites. Because of the potency of the oil, it is advisable to dilute clove essential oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil.

Additionally, a study in the Oral Microbiology and Immunology journal found that two major phenolic components of the essential oil — carvacrol and eugenol — have an anticandidal effect on Candida albicans. Candida albicans is a type of yeast that causes fungal infections such as athlete’s foot and vaginal yeast infections.

5.     Fosters good dental health

If you are one to read labels, you will recognize clove as one of the ingredients in many kinds of toothpaste. This is largely because of its strong antibacterial properties and also the high concentration of eugenol in clove.

A 2012 study to investigate clove’s ability to inhibit dental erosion (or decalcification of enamel), found that clove essential oil not only significantly decrease decalcification but it actually even remineralized teeth.

So, if you are experiencing dental problems (such as toothaches, sore gums, or ulcers), let clove essential oil take care of it. For some near-instant relief, dab clove oil onto the sore area while you arrange a dental visit.

Alternatively, to use the essential oil for toothache, dilute a couple of drops of clove oil with an edible carrier oil like coconut oil. Saturate a clean cotton ball with the mixture then apply the cotton ball to the sore tooth. Reapply every two hours or so.

6.     Works as a natural insect repellent

Commonly found in many commercial insect repellents as an active ingredient, clove essential oil is extremely effective in warding off insects.

A few studies (like those from 2011, 2015, and 2016) have shown that clove essential oil is an extremely effective bug and insect repellent.

To keep insects at bay, mix a few drops of clove essential oil with a carrier oil — like coconut oil and jojoba oil. Then, massage the mixture into the skin. Besides that, a few drops of clove essential oil scattered all around the house will also be effective in keeping them away.

7.     Heals skin problems

Clove essential oil is excellent in moisturizing dry skin. To maximize this benefit, add one or two drops of the oil to your toner, serum, or moisturizer. Alternatively, you can also use clove oil as the last step to seal in the moisture. This will address skin concerns such as early signs of aging (including wrinkles and fine lines), dehydration, and flakiness.

Mixing Clove Essential Oil with Other Essential Oils

Clove essential oil goes especially well with spicy and earthy essentials oils —including ginger, cedarwood, cassia, and frankincense essential oils — because of their warm scent.

If you are looking for a floral essential oil to blend with clove oil, do consider lavender, rose, or ylang-ylang. Alternatively, for something invigorating, try blending clove essential oil with a citrusy essential oil like bergamot and orange.

Other Good-to-Know Information

Overall, clove essential oil is safe to be consumed or applied topically in the appropriate amount. However, as clove oil is extremely potent, it can cause skin irritation and allergy in some people. Hence, always start with a patch test before proceeding further.

Deskripsi Bahasa Indonesia

Essential Oil Cengkeh (Clove)

Maski essential oil cengkeh sangat dihormati oleh orang Cina kuno, orang Persia kuno, dan orang Eropa, namun sayangnya mengalami penurunan popularitas yang tajam. Sudah saatnya kita rangkul sekali lagi essential oil ini karena memiliki beragam manfaat.

Jadi, hari ini kita akan mengeksplorasi essential oil cengkeh secara terperinci dan kita akan membahas segalanya mulai dari dasar-dasar tentang essential oil hingga banyak manfaatnya seperti yang telah kita bicarakan di atas.

 

Terbuat Dari Apakah Essential Oil Cengkeh?

Essential oil cengkeh berasal dari pohon cengkeh – juga dikenal sebagai Syzygium aromaticum. Pohon ini asli dari Kepulauan Maluku di Indonesia tetapi hari ini kamu dapat menemukan pohon cengkeh tumbuh di tempat lain juga.

Sejenis pohon cemara yang tumbuh antara 10 hingga 12 meter, pohon cengkeh tumbuh subur di iklim lembab. Sebagai tanaman yang kuat, pohon cengkeh memiliki daun hijau besar dan bunga merah tua. Bunga-bunga ini (atau kuncupnya) awalnya memiliki rona pucat, yang secara bertahap berubah menjadi hijau, dan akhirnya, menjadi merah cerah, saat itulah mereka siap untuk panen. Setelah kering, transisi warna bunga menjadi merah menuju cokelat tua.

 

Bagaimana Essential Oil Cengkeh Diekstraksi?

Essential oil cengkeh diproduksi dengan cara menyaring uap dari kuncup kering yang dikumpulkan dari pohon cengkeh. Dalam beberapa kasus, bagian lain dari pohon – seperti batang dan daunnya – juga dapat digunakan.

Essential oil cengkeh tertentu diekstraksi melalui destilasi air, bukan destilasi uap. Ini untuk menurunkan persentase eugenol (bahan kimia alami yang ditemukan dalam cengkeh) dalam essential oil. Namun, proses ini tidak umum dan metode ekstraksi yang disukai tetaplah dengan destilasi uap.

 

Manfaat Essential Oil Cengkeh

  1. Meningkatkan sistem kekebalan tubuh

Jika kamu merasa perlu sedikit stimulan restoratif untuk sistem kekebalan tubuhmu, maka essential oil cengkehlah jawabannya. Khasiat antioksidannya membantu melawan radikal bebas yang merupakan sumber dari berbagai penyakit.

Selain itu, sifat antibakteri dan antivirus essential oil ini juga berguna dalam membantu meningkatkan sistem kekebalan tubuh untuk mencegah dan melawan flu dan masuk angin. Maka, tidak heran mengapa popularitas essential oil cengkeh melonjak drastis selama musim dingin dan musim flu.

  1. Mengobati dan meredakan masalah pernapasan

Eugenol, bahan kimia dalam essential oil cengkeh, memiliki sifat anti-inflamasi yang sangat baik. Ini memastikan bahwa essential oil bekerja sempurna sebagai obat alami untuk masalah pernapasan seperti batuk dan sakit tenggorokan. Selain itu, minyak juga berfungsi sebagai ekspektoran alami untuk membersihkan saluran pernapasan.

Untuk membantu meringankan masalah pernapasan dengan essential oil cengkeh, cara terbaik untuk penggunaannya adalah dengan cara menghirup uap. Panaskan air sampai titik didih lalu angkat. Selanjutnya, tuangkan air ke dalam mangkuk besar dan tambahkan tiga hingga empat tetes essential oil cengkeh ke dalam air. Tutupi kepala dan mangkuk dengan handuk. Pastikan uapnya tidak terlalu panas sehingga tidak akan membakar wajahmu. Kemudian, hirup uap panas selama kurang lebih sepuluh menit.

Selain itu, sifat essential oil cengkeh yang dipanaskan pasti akan membantu memberikan sedikit kelegaan dari batuk berdahak yang konstan. Untuk meredakan dan menyembuhkan batuk membandel, buat sendiri campuran essential oil cengkeh dan madu.

  1. Meningkatkan Kesehatan Pencernaan yang Baik

Essential oil cengkeh telah lama digunakan untuk meredakan sakit perut dan masalah pencernaan lainnya termasuk gangguan pencernaan, diare, masuk angin, dan perut kembung. Untuk efek cepat, pijatkan beberapa tetes essential oil ke area perut mu. Atau, encerkan beberapa tetes minyak ke dalam air untuk diminum.

Selain itu, penelitian juga menunjukkan bahwa essential oil cengkeh memiliki kemampuan untuk merangsang produksi lendir lambung – faktor penting yang melindungi pencernaan. Apa yang perlu dilakukan adalah membantu melindungi saluran pencernaan dan juga mencegah pembentukan iritasi dan gastritis.

  1. Melawan infeksi

Karena essential oil cengkeh penuh dengan sifat antiseptik, maka essential oil ini dapat digunakan untuk mencegah infeksi. Dapat juga mengobati hal-hal seperti luka gores, lecet, panu, infeksi jamur, kurap, memar, hingga gigitan serangga. Karena penuh dengan potensi, maka disarankan untuk melarutkan essential oil cengkeh dengan minyak pendamping seperti minyak kelapa.

Selain yang di atas, sebuah penelitian dalam jurnal Mikrobiologi dan Imunologi Oral menemukan bahwa dua komponen fenolik utama dari essential oil cengkeh – carvacrol dan eugenol – memiliki efek anticandidal pada Candida albicans. Candida albicans adalah jenis ragi yang menyebabkan infeksi jamur seperti infeksi jamur pada kaki dan keputihan pada vagina.

  1. Menjaga kesehatan gigi yang baik

Jika kamu membaca di label nya, kamu akan mendapatkan bahwa cengkeh merupakan salah satu bahan dalam berbagai jenis pasta gigi. Ini sebagian besar karena sifat antibakteri nya yang kuat dan juga konsentrasi tinggi eugenol yang terdapat di dalam cengkeh.

Sebuah studi tahun 2012 untuk menyelidiki kemampuan cengkeh dalam menghambat erosi gigi (atau dekalsifikasi enamel), ditemukan bahwa essential oil cengkeh tidak hanya secara signifikan mengurangi dekalsifikasi tetapi sebenarnya juga meremajakan gigi.

Jadi, jika kamu mengalami masalah gigi (seperti sakit gigi, sakit gusi, atau bisul), gunakan essential oil cengkeh merawatnya. Untuk efek cepat, oleskan essential oil cengkeh ke area yang sakit saat kamu berkunjung ke klinik gigi.

Atau, untuk penggunaan essential oil dalam sakit gigi, encerkan beberapa tetes essential oil cengkeh dengan minyak pendamping yang dapat dimakan seperti minyak kelapa. Serapkan bola kapas bersih dengan campuran tadi, kemudian oleskan bola kapas ke gigi yang sakit. Terapkan kembali setiap dua jam atau lebih.

  1. Bekerja sebagai pembasmi serangga alami

Sering ditemukan dalam banyak pengusir serangga komersial sebagai bahan aktif, essential oil cengkeh sangat efektif dalam menangkal serangga.

Beberapa penelitian (seperti yang dari tahun 2011, 2015, dan 2016) telah menunjukkan bahwa essential oil cengkeh adalah penolak serangga yang sangat efektif.

Untuk mencegah serangga, campurkan beberapa tetes essential oil cengkeh dengan minyak pendamping – seperti minyak kelapa dan minyak jojoba. Lalu, pijat campuran ke kulit. Selain itu, beberapa tetes essential oil cengkeh yang disebar di sekitar rumah juga akan efektif dalam menghalau serangga.

  1. Menyembuhkan masalah kulit

Essential oil cengkeh sangat baik untuk melembabkan kulit kering. Untuk memaksimalkan manfaat ini, tambahkan satu atau dua tetes minyak ke toner, serum, atau pelembab kesukaanmu. Atau, kamu juga bisa menggunakan essential oil cengkeh sebagai langkah terakhir untuk mengunci kelembaban. Langkah ini akan mengatasi masalah kulit seperti tanda-tanda awal penuaan (termasuk keriput dan garis-garis halus), dehidrasi, dan kulit yang mengelupas.

 

Mencampur Essential Oil Cengkeh dengan Essential Oil Lainnya

Essential oil cengkeh sangat cocok dengan essential oil beraroma pedas dan menghangatkan — termasuk jahe (ginger), cedarwood, cassia, dan essential oil kemenyan (frankincense) – karena aromanya yang menenangkan.

Kalau kamu mencari essential oil aroma bunga untuk dicampur dengan essential oil cengkeh, kamu bisa mencoba lavender, mawar (rose), atau ylang-ylang. Atau, untuk sesuatu yang menyegarkan, cobalah memadukan essential oil cengkeh dengan essential oil aroma citrus seperti bergamot dan jeruk.

 

Informasi Good-to-Know Lainnya

Secara keseluruhan, essential oil cengkeh aman untuk dikonsumsi atau dioleskan dalam jumlah yang sesuai. Namun, karena minyak cengkeh sangat kuat, dapat menyebabkan iritasi kulit dan alergi pada beberapa orang. Oleh karena itu, selalu mulai dengan tes area sebelum melanjutkan.

 

Apakah Essential Oil Cengkeh Tepat untuk mu?

Meski essential oil ini sering diremehkan dan kurang dihargai, namun essential oil cengkeh merupakan tambahan yang sangat baik untuk koleksi semua orang.
