Clove essential oil is rich in the mono-terpene phenol and has stimulating and warming properties, along with a variety of uses ranging from cleansing to oral care. Clove essential oil has been shown to support healthy inflammatory processes in human cells.* A recent research paper by doTERRA scientists, published in Pharmaceutical Biology , adds to our knowledge of the activity of clove essential oil in human skin cells.
doTERRA scientists studied the impact of Clove essential oil in the Biologically Multiplexed Activity Profiling (BioMAP®) system of human skin fibroblasts, a well-validated human skin model. The study found that Clove essential oil is able to affect critical proteins relevant to healthy inflammatory responses and processes of tissue remodeling. The study also found that Clove essential oil actively affects human genes and signaling pathways. These findings suggest that we have only just begun to scratch the surface when it comes to the health benefits of Clove essential oil when used topically.
While further research is needed for a full understanding of the efficacy and mechanisms of action of Clove, doTERRA scientists have brought research on essential oils and their health benefits back to the forefront.
