Common Name: Clove
Botanical Name: Eugenia caryophyllata
Parts Used: Bud
Processing: Steam distilled
Primary Chemical Type: Phenlic Ether
Common Uses: The high percentage (79+%) of Eugenol makes clove oil a great antiseptic. It numbs nerves (add a drop to a cotton swab and apply to a sore tooth). It is both stimulating to the mind and a known aphrodisiac. Helpful when battling colds and flu.
Special Notes:Spicy rich aroma, just like cloves. Can cause sensitization and should be used in dilution. Avoid during pregnancy.
