Clove Essential Oil

Clove was listed in Hildegard’s Medicine, a compilation of early German medicines by highly regarded Benedictine Herbalists, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179). Native to the Maluku Islands of Indonesia, the clove tree is a tropical evergreen species that produces thousands of small, fragrant flower buds. These buds are harvested when they ripen to a deep red color, then dried and steam distilled to produce Clove essential oil. Healers in China and India have used clove buds since ancient times as part of their treatments. Eugenol, cloves principal constituent was used in the dental industry for years to numb gums. Clove and Clove Vitality are the same essential oil.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.

DIY aroma stones with essential oils

DIY Aroma Stones with Essential Oils

Show your guests a glimpse of your creativity with this simple DIY that includes everyday ingredients. These artfully crafted accessories offer more than decoration; they also spread the scent of your favorite essential oils throughout the room in a new way!

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups flour
  • ¼ cup Epsom salt
  • ⅔ cup plus a few tablespoons boiling water
  • 30-40 drops essential oil
  • Food coloring (optional)

 

Instructions

1. Combine the flour and salt in a bowl while bringing water to a boil.

2. Add the boiling water and essential oils to the flour and salt mixture. We used 20 drops of Purification® and 15 drops of Cypress for a fresh, invigorating scent. For more scent ideas, check out the “scents we love” section below.

YL tip: If you’re dying your stones, add the food coloring to the boiling water before mixing it with the dry ingredients. This will evenly distribute the color in the dough.

3. Mix together with a whisk or fork. Add essential oils.

4. When the mixture is cool to the touch, knead the dough for several minutes until it’s smooth. The substance should resemble bread dough. If the dough is crumbly, add a tablespoon of water at a time and knead until the water is fully incorporated.

5. Break off 1-2 inch pieces of dough and roll with your hands into the shape of a ball or stone. For a river rock look—as seen in the picture—dip your finger in water and smooth out the cracks.

YL tip: Use a silicone mold to shape your aroma stones for a different look.

6. Leave the stones out to dry for 48 hours or until they are completely dry.

 

How it works

The essential oil aroma from the stones will flow throughout the area for a week or two. When the scent fades, add 3-12 drops of your favorite essential oils on the stones. The number of drops will depend on the size of the room and number of stones grouped together.

YL tip: Avoid getting the stones wet to maintain their texture.

Where to show off your aroma stones

Aroma stones carry a subtle scent, especially when they’re freshly made! You can put them inside your drawer or closet, under the car seat, next to your bed . . . the options are limitless!

We suggest displaying these eye-catching stones as part of your home décor. When they’re dry, put them in a classic vase or bowl to exhibit your creative side with adorning aromas. Think of them as modern-day
