My husband uses this oil mixed with oregano oil for oil pulling as recommended by his dentist. His dentist is very pleased with how his gums have improved. After taking your Green Cleaning Workshop, I plan to incorporate it in some of my cleaning supplies, especially over the winter months and cold/flu season.
Clove bud is highly anti-infectious. It is great for green cleaning when combined with citruses. It is pain relieving and warming to sore joints and muscles.
