Get Young Living Essential Oils

Clove is the champion of all with an ORAC score over 10 million!! That means a drop of Clove essential oil contains 400 times more antioxidant per unit volume than wolfberries, the most powerful of all known fruits.

Of course, the comparison isn’t quite fair since essential oils are concentrates while fresh fruits are not.

Nevertheless, a 15 ml bottle of Clove essential oil has the antioxidant capacity of 150 lbs of carrots, 40 quarts of blueberries or 16 gallons of beet juice.

See some of the scientific studies on essential oils.
