Clove Bud (Indonesia) Essential Oil

RatingRatingRatingRatingRating
Average Product Rating: 4.9 / 5 (Based on 57 Customer Reviews)


Main Constituents:
Eugenol: 78.19%

Botanical Name: Syzygium aromaticum L.

Plant Part: Buds

Extraction Method: Steam Distilled

Origin: Indonesia

Description: Clove Bud Essential Oil is derived from the tree Syzgium aromaticum plant. It is a slender evergreen that grows up to 12 meters in height (approximately 36 feet). At the start of the rainy season, long buds appear. They change color over time and are beaten from the trees and dried. These are the cloves sold commercially.

Color: Pale yellow to yellow clear liquid.

Consistency: Medium

Aromatic Scent: Clove Bud (Indonesia) Essential Oil smells like the actual cloves from which it has been distilled. The aroma of this oil is typical of the Indonesian variety, which is spicier than the Sri Lankan and Indian varieties, being less sweet and slightly more herbaceous. Because of this difference, we recommend that you order a sample before making a larger order.

Note: Middle

Strength of Aroma: Medium

Blends well with: Blends well with other spice oils including Cinnamon Bark, Nutmeg, Citronella, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Rose.

Common Uses: The bud of this evergreen, indigenous to Southeast Asia, has a long history as an effective agent for minor pains and aches, particularly dental pain because of its numerous effects on oral tissues. It is widely used in contemporary Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.

History: The word Clove comes from the Latin word clavus, meaning nail, since the shaft and head of the clove bud resembles an ancient nail. Cloves and nutmeg were among the most precious of spices of Europe of the 16th and 17th centuries, and were worth more than their weight in gold. Today it is used worldwide as a culinary spice from East Indian masala blends to Dutch cheeses, in herbal cigarettes and pomanders, and even as an ant repellent.

Cautions: Clove Bud Oil can cause sensitization in some individuals and should be used in dilution. It should also be avoided during pregnancy.

Yummy, spicy, warming, essential oil! It's a strong essential oil and tends to be overpowering in most combination blends that I've used it in. However it blends really nicely with orange essential oil.

Definitely prefer this over Clove Leaf. Herbal and spicy, this E.O. blends really well with cinnamon, sweet orange and patchouli. It does have a tendency to move a little quick in your CP soap, but that's typical. Very strong scent. Love it!

so clove leaf is dark brown and clove bud is clearish, just thought I would throw that out there since I kept guessing otherwise (yes it's in the description but who reads that anyway!) clove bud is the soft, sweet, yet assertive sibling to clove leaf I don't think I have a favorite between them, I do like that the clove bud will have less color ( I don't know how it does in CP soap yet)

I have used this mixed 1:10 in FCO to numb poison ivy. A drop or two on a cotton ball, then dab onto the PI outbreak instantly numbed the itch for hours. Love the scent in blends too.

Nice spicey scent. True to the cloves you buy in the grocery stores. Holds up very well. I always take a sample of each batch of cp soap and store it for a year to see if the oils go rancid or if scent disapates and found this to be one of the longest shelf life. Love this oil.

I added a few drops of clove and lavender to avocado oil and massaged onto deep bruises after my sport activity; it soothed the area and the bruise diminished sooner (my sport leaves me with lots of bruises so I consider myself a 'bruise expert'). Bonus... a really nice aroma.

This is one of my most favorite oils available at NDA. No matter what else you have going on in your lotion, and I've got quite a lot going on, after the rest have tired, clove bud oil keeps its presence known. Not in a overpowering way, but nicely, it just wants you to put the back of your hand to your nose every once in a while to remind you what an amazing fragrance you've been carrying around with you all day. I love this oil!

I orginally purchased clove bud because of it's wonderful scent and high ORAC rating 1,078,700uTE/100g. I've blended it in one of my fall smudges and also with Cinnamon floral water. Because it antitumoral, antimicorbial, antifungal, antiviral, analgesic/anesthetic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic and is supposedly used in Marseilles Vinegar the original grave robbers mo durning time of the plague I used it on my husbands neck lump. His doctor declared it a fatty tumor and didn't do anything about it but I noticed it kept growing. So being really into EO's and knowing it properties I applied a small drop or two to the lump. After one week it shrunk in size by half. At that point I noticed a small puncture mark. I applied pressure an a substance came out. I kept applying the clove oil and again it shrunk. This time another puncture mark appeared - he had a spider bite. The applying of oil went on for months along with releasing the stuff inside. I'm happy to report that he is now tumor free! It was amazing to see how the stuff inside his neck really didn't like the Clove oil and would make it's way out fast when applied to his neck. My husband isn't really into this stuff but now sings the praises of your clove oil to everyone! Thanks again for your high quality oils. I'd say you have a customer for life.

Everyone needs to keep this in the medicine cabinet for those awful toothaches. It reminds me of the that Jiffy stuff that you would find in grocery stores back in the 70's and 80's that was used for dental pain. To me its basically the same stuff and works much better. It's also great in cold process soaps, yummy mixed with patchouli and orange.

A most lovely fragrance when mixed a small amount with a light carrier oil and lavender. A fragrance similar to expensive brands like Chanel, or Lagerfeld...Addictive fragrance. However, skin may be very sensitive to it. Must use essential oil guidelines and patch test.

This is a great oil. I love mixing it with cinnamon and orange. All during the Christmas season, I have had that be my scent. The house always smells like Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner! Yum! When my husband and I were selling our old house, we used clove bud to neutralize the odor in the basement. The relator was impressed at how quickly the smell was gone, and said the basement actually smelled good when people walked through it.
