Profile

Eugenia caryophyllus is an evergreen tree that grows to around 50 ft. It has leaves that begin as a pale red in color. The leaves turn green as they mature. Flowering occurs after 7 years. The tree can continue to have a productive life for a further 50-70 years. The cloves are handpicked when the lower portion of the clove bud is changing color from green to red. Clove Bud essential oil is water distilled from the dried flower buds. The oil is a clear to yellow mobile liquid, becoming brown. It has a strong, sweet, and recognizable spicy color.

The Aromatherapy Place offers a variety of AUROMA Clove Bud Essential Oils to suit your preference. Over time, treat yourself to a special sensual experience by trying and comparing the qualities of each. There are slight variations in odor, color, and the levels of constituents within each oil. However, the oils are similar and can be used in place of one another.

FACT: The word Clove is derived from the Latin word “clavus” or the French word “clou”, meaning nail, the shape of which cloves are said to resemble. Known as a domestic spice worldwide, cloves have been used throughout history from the Romans, who used it to keep the plague at bay, to Chinese medicine where cloves were considered highly prized for many uses from cooking, digestion, smoking to dental /oral care and cleaning just to name a few.

Auroma Quality

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.

Do not apply directly to skin. May case skin irritation in some individuals.  Always dilute with a carrier oil. A skin test is recommended prior to use on the skin.
