Purely Presents: Clove


The clove tree has been cultivated since antiquity for a variety of uses. Although native to Indonesia, cloves are used across the world for medicinal and herbal purposes. Cloves are also often used in the kitchen as a cooking spice.

Due to its stimulating properties, clove buds can be used to aid with digestive problems as well as to help relieve nausea.

Purely Presents: Frankincense


More valuable than gold, at least it used to be. Purely’s Frankincense is used for a multitude of issues such as helping you clear up those skin imperfections like wrinkles and scars.

Frankincense is famed and valued as an essential oil. It is mentioned prominently in the New Testament. Assyrians and Babylonians burned it during funerals while ancient Egyptians utilized Frankincense gum for many purposes including salves for treating the skin and perfumes for the body.

Since it has beautifying and soothing elements, Frankincense is effective in reinvigorating the skin and lessening the appearance of stretch marks and scars. It is regarded as the greatest among oils and is effective for the promotion of cell health.

Purely Oils & Blends to Avoid while Pregnant (and Nursing)


While essential oils have many wonderful uses and benefits, that does not mean that every oil or blend is appropriate for use on all people, ages, or stages of life.

For instance, there are very few oils that are appropriate to use on children (see our Essential Oil Age Guidelines). Additionally, you should always use a carrier oil with your essential oils — especially the first time you ever try the oil.

One of the biggest questions about essential oils is whether or not they can be used while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Purely has created a list of our oils and blends that you should avoid while pregnant or nursing.

Please note: This post is not meant to replace the advice of your doctor. Under no circumstance should you attempt to use any oils without proper research or advice from a medical professional. If in doubt, do not use the oil.
