Clove 100% Pure Essential Oil
The clove tree is an evergreen native to the Maluku islands in Indonesia, but is mainly harvested in India, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Its large leaves cradle the tree’s spirited little flowers which supply the buds used for extraction. The buds sprout in pale clusters, turning to green and eventually a magnificent bright red, which signals they are ready for collection.

History of Clove
Known for studding orange peels in mulled wine, cloves–which are actually unopened flower buds–are a popular culinary spice. Clove essential oil’s aroma is reminiscent of the scent you would find in your spice cabinet, but more potent. Though this spice makes a pronounced and exotic addition to many recipes, the essential oil’s aromatherapy uses are even more remarkable.
Using Clove Bud Oil
All essential oil blends are for aromatherapy use only and are not for ingesting!
Mull it Over
Like enjoying the comforting, warming scent sensations of mulled wine!
Dilute in a carier oil and lovingly massage into sore muscles and joints...
Bath & Shower
Add 5-10 drops to hot bath water, or sprinkle into shower steam before getting in for an at-home spa experience.
8-10 drops of essential oil per 1 ounce of carrier oil. Apply a small amount directly to areas of concern, such as muscles, skin or joints. Work the oil gently into the skin until it is fully absorbed.
Inhale the aromatic vapors directly from the bottle, or place a few drops in a burner or diffuser to fill a room with its scent.
This oil can be used in your homemade DIY projects, such as in candles, soaps, and body care products!
