The crude clove oil is extracted from the leaves, buds and stems of the plant from the Myrtaceae family.
The clove trees are indigenous to Indonesia. Indonesia is also the biggest consumer of clove buds itself , primarily in the kreket cigarette industry. With the interest of using the remaining components such as leaves and stems the farmers produce clove oil.
Clove oil is predominantly used across the dentistry industry for its germicidal properties. It is also used throughout the aromatherapy world, often as a relaxant to relieve the symptoms of stress. It is also found in blends to aid restful sleep and for those with mild depressions.
Our clove oil is obtained directly from the farmers who use monitored steam distillation as the method of production.
