Clove Bud Essential Oil
Clove Bud Essential Oil is derived from the tree Syzygium aromaticum plant. It is a slender evergreen that grows up to 12 meters in height (approximately 36 feet). At the start of the rainy season, long buds appear. They change color over time and are beaten from the trees and dried. Clove oil is a warm, spicy middle note containing eugenol, and it can darken or become thicker with age or air exposure. Popular in topical rubs and aromatherapy blends, clove combines well with other essential oils such as sandalwood, lemon, bergamot, and chamomile.
