Clove Bud Oil is distilled from the aromatic flower buds of the clove, a tropical evergreen tree belonging to the myrtle family.
The tree can grow to be 90 years old. The flowers are picked before the blossoms open up, and dried for 48 hours in the sun, during which time they turn from a light pink colour to dark brown. The essential oil is extracted from the flower buds by steam distillation and it has a warm, rich, spicy and sweet aroma.
