The scent is very strong, sort of "medieval" if that makes sense. Mix with a carrier oil if you apply to skin (I used coconut oil for its anti-bacterial/anti-fungal properties). I have not tried diffusing it, but it might be nice in the fall/winter with Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.

Clove bud oil works great for teething pain. The previous reviewer only used it for aromatherapy and has used other "scents" that she liked better but essential oils are more than just for aromatherapy, they are medicinal as well. Clove bud oil is used mainly for medicinal purposes.

This oil (clove bud) does not smell good to me at all. Very medicinal and pungent. Maybe it's used for another purpose other than aromatherapy but for the scent, I would not recommend it. I do find that the Aura Cacia products are good quality and value, however and have tried other scents that I enjoyed from this brand.
