Clove blends well with citrus oils such as Lemon and Wild Orange, as well as with similarly woody oils including Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark. Use Clove to clear the air and bring the aroma of a cool, crisp autumn day indoors! Why not bake with this essential oil, too, letting its stimulating and spicy aroma fill the house as you whip up some pumpkin or gingerbread goodies?
Something to take note of when using any essential oil in the kitchen is that mixing it with an olive or other oil (or another liquid) will help to evenly disperse flavor throughout the dish. As a general rule, baking tends to require more essential oil flavoring than cooking; for example, a couple mere toothpick dips of oil might be sufficient for a sauce, whereas you may need a couple drops of oil to flavor a baked good such as bread. Here’s a helpful substitution rule for Clove and other oils like it: 1 teaspoon dried herbs = 1 tablespoon fresh herbs = 1 drop dōTERRA.
