Clove Essential Oil
Dear friends, I use clove oil in my kitchen every day. I put a drop in a spray bottle full of water, and add one drop of dish soap. At clean-up time, I spray down the counters and sink, then wipe it with a clean cloth. Clove oil smells great and has wonderful disinfectant properties! Last night, my 11 year old son begged me for pain relief from his canker sore. I put some coconut oil (you could also use olive oil, etc) on a Q-tip, then added a big drop of clove oil. I dabbed it on his sore. I expected him to yelp at first, but he didn't! Within a minute he laughed and said, "Mom, you numbed my whole tongue!" This should make it heal faster, too!
