Quick Overview

Synergy Essentials 100% pure Clove select essential oil CO2 distilled from clove buds grown in India. This is a wonderfully rich, spicy Clove oil, benefiting significantly from the Supercritical CO2 distillation - highly recommended for all aromatherapeutic uses.

Botanical Name: Syzygium aromaticum

Due to its exceptional antioxidant capabilities, and its efficacy as a dietary supplement (read cautions before ingestion), Clove Essential Oil has been included in many recipes for health and long life. This Indonesian medium-sized tree's buds produce a yellow, spice, warm, and sweet liquid with a crisp top note. Synergy's Clove Essential oil is made from immature buds, making it the safest type of clove oil, though should still be used in low dilutions of 1% or less.

About the Oil
Known for its strong anti-microbial and antiseptic actions, Clove Essential oil is used in both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat a variety of gastrointestinal complaints, toothache, and bad breath. Clove Oil is also strongly anti-parasitic, and has been recommended by Dr. Hulda Clark for the elimination of intestinal parasites. Her recipe includes ground cloves, though the oil is thought to be as effective. Additionally, eugenol, Clove oil's primary component, has been found to kill the Tuberculosis bacillus bacterium in concentrations as low as 0.05%. Long known to numb tooth pain, clove may also be effective at speeding oral healing. The ingestion of a drop of clove oil during smoking cessation is thought to reduce cravings.
Aromatherapy Notes
A spicy, warm, red top note, Clove blends well with: Bergamot, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clary Sage, Ginger, Nutmeg, Orange, Peppermint, Vanilla, and Ylang Ylang. A potent mental tonic, Clove mixed with Peppermint wards off drowsiness.
Traditional Uses
During the Renaissance, Clove oil was used to prevent the spread of epidemics and plague, thanks to its strong anti-microbial actions. In TCM, the oil was used to treat hernia, bad breath, and diarrhea. Currently, the whole and ground spices are principally used for culinary spices, and to produce pickles and sauces. Indonesia is one of the largest consumers of cloves, mostly for the manufacture of the kretek cigarette.
