|Clove Bud is powerful in any form so we recommend a maximum dilution of 0.5% for topical applications.
Our organically crafted Clove Bud Essential Oil is steam distilled from the blossoming, tiny, crimson buds of the Eugenia caryophyllata (syn Syzygium aromaticum) evergreen tree growing wild in the forests of Indonesia. With its rich, warm, sweet-spicy, eugenolic aroma, Clove Bud Oil offers numerous applications within beauty, cosmetic, aromatherapy and soapmaking applications.
Due to its exceptional antioxidant capabilities and its efficacy as a dietary supplement, Clove Essential Oil has been included in many recipes for health and long life. The main chemical component of the oil is Eugenol, which is also responsible for Clove Oil's strong fragrance. Eugenol is also an important molecule for modern dentistry that is still found in pharmaceuticals today for toothache and gum complaints.
