From the Bud and the Leaf of the Aromatic Clove

      Comments Off on From the Bud and the Leaf of the Aromatic Clove

The aromatic flower buds known as cloves are found on the clove tree native to the Maluku Islands in Indonesia, and Madagascar. Cloves are well known for their rich fragrance and are often used as a spice. Essential oils are derived from the clove bud as well as the clove leaf. 

Clove Bud Oil has a stronger floral scent than Clove Leaf Oil and as a result it is more commonly used for aromatherapy or for additions to room sprays and air-fresheners. In contrast, the Clove Leaf Essential Oil is not commonly used in aromatherapy. Except for this distinction, however, Clove Bud and Clove Leaf Oil share many of the same benefits. 

  • The Oil helps to relieve toothache and to soothe aching gums, while boosting gum health and fighting off future infection. It has also been found that Clove Oil can aid in slowing down decalcification and reducing the instances of cavities and tooth decay. 
  • Clove Oil fights off acne. Using small concentrations of Clove Oil – added to a carrier oil and/or mixed with honey – as a facewash reportedly helps to clean and clear the skin of pimples. 
  • It’s great for digestion. Clove Oil is often used in the treatment of digestion problems as well as in easing ulcers in the digestive system. 
  • Overall health helper. Clove Oil has many health benefits: it is antibacterial, it helps to boost the immune system and it has also been said to be powerful in promoting heart health.
