Clove essential oil (Eugenia caryophyllata) is a spicy, warming oil steam distilled from the buds and stems of the plant. It smells like (wanna take a wager?) dried clove, but much stronger in an oil form. Its strength makes it one to use with care and dilution.
Aromatically it may also be encouraging, promoting a person's healing, and stimulating their mind.

Energetically, mentally, and emotionally, clove is said to promote healthy boundaries, helping a person feel empowered and encouraged to stand strong and break patterns of being victimized by creating honoring their needs and speaking for themselves. It may also help a person struggling with codependency, or those who find themselves too dominating or crossing the boundaries of others by also learning to stand independent of others. Along these lines, it might help a person learn to not care so much about what others think, and learn to love and accept themselves.
