Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

Clove Bud Essential Oil

The Chinese have used clove for more than 2,000 yrs! These small buds originate as the unopened pink flower buds of the evergreen tree. Once they are dried they turn brown, then we recognize them as the spice that is so popular & then converted into an essential oil that is highly beneficial to the body.

The eugenol in cloves is a powerful anti-inflammatory & has been shown to reverse inflammation & cellular oxidation. It's very popular as an antiseptic for oral infections and gum disease. It is also a broad-spectrum anti-microbial that helps to keep countless health issues at bay. It has been shown to be beneficial in fighting E. coli & pneumonia! Clove can also be a great help in eliminating candida & killing intestinal parasites.

They have found that clove oil has the same numbing effects as benzocaine, so it's beneficial for toothaches & dental issues.

Ground cloves has an astounding ORAC value of 290,283 units -- which means -- per gram, cloves contain 30X more antioxidant power than blueberries!! And we all know how awesome those little guys are for our health, right??? An antioxidant is a molecule that reverses damage that free radicals cause, including cell death & cancer.

Because it is so very potent...Do NOT ingest. Do NOT apply to the skin undiluted.

It's a very powerful ingredient in our Quartzsite Krud Kicker!
