Clove Bud Essential Oil
Our Clove Bud (Eugenia caryophylatta) essential oil from India is therapeutic quality essential oil steam distilled from the buds.
Clove is a familiar spice and comes from an evergreen tree that grows up to twelve feet in height. At harvest time the branches are beaten with sticks, causing the buds to fall to the ground. The fragrant buds are then gathered and dried to be used in the spice and perfume industries. The essential oil is extracted by distillation from the buds.
