Clove essential oil is extracted from Eugenia caryophyllata also known as Syzygium aromaticum, Eugenia aromatica, E. Carophyllus of the Myrtaceae family. Although clove oil is very potent oil that should be used with great care in aromatherapy, it does have wonderful properties. Oil properties: Clove oil has a warm, strong, spicy smell and the oil is colorless to pale yellow with a medium to watery viscosity. A native of Indonesia and the Malacca Islands, it is an evergreen tree that grows to about 10 meters (30 feet) tall and has bright green leaves and nail-shaped rose-peach flower buds which turn, upon drying, a deep red brown.
These are beaten from the tree and dried. The Latin word'Clavus' means nail shaped, referring to the bud. It was often used by the Greeks, Roman and the Chinese, to ease toothache and as a breath sweetener, especially when talking to the Emperor. It was an important commodity in the spice trade and is still used in perfumes, mulled wines and liqueurs, love potions, and, stuck in an orange as pomade, an insect repellant.Extraction: Clove oil can be extracted from the leaves, stem and buds. We sell clove leaf oil, which is extracted by water distillation, containing the desired lower percentage of eugenol. Chemical composition: The main chemical components of clove oil are eugenol, eugenol acetate, iso-eugenol and caryophyllene. Precautions: Clove oil is very potent oil and should be used with care.
