Clove Essential Oil, OrganicSimplers Botanicals
Clove Bud essential oil is distilled from the dried flower buds of a tropical tree native to Indonesia. The tree was brought to Madagascar over 300 years ago where it has thrived in the similar habitat. The distiller buys the clove buds from a local farmer’s association that cultivates organic trees along the north-eastern coast of Madagascar. This steam-distilled oil is spicy, sweet and warming.
