Native to the Maluku Islands of Indonesia, Cloves were one of the top three spices traded and these islands came to be known as the Spice Islands to European traders. The English word “clove” actually comes from the French word for nail, “clou” - a fitting name considering the dried clove bud looks like a small nail!

Cloves have appeared in history dating as far back as 1721 BC and used by different cultures in different ways. As a herb, clove was prized for its intense sweet and warming flavour.

Whole dried cloves were valued for their pain numbing effect - chewing whole cloves was recommended as a folk medicine to relieve tooth pain. They also served as a breath freshener - according to records from 226 BC, anyone who spoke to Chinese Emperors were asked to chew cloves prior to speaking with the emperor.

The effects of clove buds, and later on, clove bud oil, were so well-known and widespread that they appear in many traditional remedies from around the world, including Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine as a form of natural pain reliever. When massaged into the skin, clove oil creates a warm feeling and may relieve minor aches & pains.

Every essential oil unit comes in an amber frosted glass bottle with an easy to use dropper and includes a batch number & best before date. The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) are available upon request.

Product FAQs

This oil smells so good… May I use it in place of clove buds for cooking?

While essential oils do smell tempting, it’s not recommended to ingest them without careful supervision or advice from a professional.

I have toothache - can I use Clove Bud Essential oil?

To relieve any minor toothache, a few drops of diluted clove bud oil can be applied directly to the gum at the source of the pain - if the pain persists, we advise seeing a professional.

What makes Clove Bud Oil so special?

Unique to Clove Bud Oil is a compound called Eugenol - this is what’s responsible for Clove Oil’s signature fragrance, plus all of its remedial abilities, including antiseptic and mild anaesthetic properties.
