Clove Essential oil, the ones who know it know well enough about the great doings of this amazing oil…And even the ones who don’t, have a fairly good idea of what clove essential oil is all about, because at the end of the day it is about this amazing antiseptic oil that destroys all the human ills…
Clove oil is an evergreen plant that is native to Indonesia and the Malacca Islands. It is a large plant that grows about 30 feet in height with green leaves and pink flower buds. Clove oil is extracted from the bud leaves and stem of the plant. There are a number of ways to extract the oil from the clove plant. However, the two most commonly used methods would be distillation or pressing/smearing the oils out
Clove has many nutritional benefits, but most people use it sparingly in food because it has a strong spicy taste. Clove is rich in nutrients like potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium. It also has phosphorus, copper, zinc, iron, selenium, zinc and manganese. Clove oil is a good source of vitamins A, C, E and choline. It also has decent levels of vitamins like –
- Riboflavin niacin
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin K
Clove oil is found at most health food stores, pharmacies, and even Walmart sometimes. The health food version is great, because it’s natural and the strongest oil one can buy. Take a bottle of cheap shampoo and conditioner, and pour a hefty dose into them. Then, wash the child’s hair with the shampoo and then work in the conditioner. Let the conditioner sit for a few minutes, then use a lice comb to comb through their hair while the conditioner is still in. If you see any live lice, add a bit more clove oil. Sometimes, try adding peppermint oil, too, because it’s also strong oil, and smells wonderful. Tea tree oil is also good, but hasn’t had as much success with that as I have the clove oil.
If ever exposed to lice, just go ahead and add the clove oil to our shampoos and conditioners as a preventative. Don’t worry about using the lice comb if you don’t think you have gotten any lice yet. Just to make sure that your heads are as unfavorable to hosting them as possible.
