Product Name:Clove Bud Oil
Description & extraction:
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. Clove essential oil is extracted from eugenia caryophyllata (also known as syzygium aromaticum, eugenia aromatica, e. Carophyllus) of the myrtaceae family. Clove oil is a very potent oil that should be used with great care in aromatherapy, it does have wonderful properties - from stimulating the mind and lifting depression, to aiding digestion, relieving pain in arthritis and rheumatism, easing respiratory problems and assisting leg ulcers.
