Our organic Clove Bud essential oil has a rich, warm, sweet-spicy, eugenolic aroma with a peculiar, fresh-fruity top note. It is commonly used in Carnation and spicy perfumes and, in trace amounts, for imparting richness to almost any perfume. Genuine Clove Bud oil may be easily adulterated or extended with the abundant Clove leaf or stem oils that display little complexity in comparison.

Clove Bud oil is dominated by eugenol, an important constituent used in the preservation of foods, particularly when the growth of organisms is a safety concern. Eugenol is also an important molecule for modern dentistry that is still found in pharmaceuticals today for toothache and gum complaints.Clove Bud also contains 14% beta-caryophyllene, recently discovered to be a cannabinoid responsible for specific interaction with the CB(2) receptor, and thus has potential therapeutic value when swelling and associated discomfort arise.

Topically, in very small percentages, Clove Bud lends a warming appeal in massage oils to combat the chill of winter and is wonderful in the diffuser, especially with Orange, to clear airborne microbes.
