New Roots Herbal’s 100% pure, clove leaf essential oil is a fantastic natural remedy for the treatment of several bacterial and fungal infections. One of the main compounds responsible for these antimicrobial activities, especially when it comes to antifungal properties, is called eugenol. This compound disrupts the cell membrane, causing the cells to lyse or burst open. With this mechanism of action in mind, it can be a useful topical application on fungal infections like athlete’s foot. Clove oil, applied topically, has antinociceptive or analgesic effects, and has been well known for centuries for its use in dental care. It can be applied orally for tooth aches (making sure large amounts are not being swallowed!); or topically on sore muscles, joint pain, and muscle spasms. It is no surprise that the constituent responsible for this is again eugenol. There are two proposed mechanisms for this effect: altering nerve conduction via the sodium, potassium, and chloride pumps; or altering the sensory signals to the brain. The signals travel to the brain via A‑delta and C fibres (mostly), resulting in a warming and tingling effect that effectively overrides the pain. It can effectively be applied topically with carrier oils like coconut, tamanu, jojoba, or argan.
