ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

CLOVE BUD

Clove Bud Essential OilClove bud essential oil is distinct from the more common clove oil, which may be distilled primarily from clove leaves and/or broken and rejected bits of stem from the familiar kitchen spice. Whole cloves are the dried, unopened flower buds of a tropical tree and the oil they contain possesses a more complete array of aroma constituents than the leaf or stems alone. Plain clove leaf and stem has a one-note, medicinal eugenol scent. Good clove bud essential oil will have suave floral, fruity nuances and a pleasant dough-like note.

Aromatherapy: Clove bud contains the constituent eugenol. The spicy, familiar aroma of pure clove bud oil calls to mind baked goods and evokes feelings of comfort and security associated with home.

Home Care: Add a few drops to drains or garbage disposal to purify and deodorize.
