Pure CO2 Essential Oil & Steam Distilled, Wild and
CO2 distillation explained
« All Essential Oils
« A-Z Summary Listings
From Ananda Aromatherapy, pure Clove bud essential oils, CO2 distilled from clove buds organically grown
in India, and steam distilled from wildgrown clove grown in Madagascar. The CO2 process benefits the distillation as it seems to with all spice oils, resulting in a more viscous and complex (yet more tenaceous scent). The wildcrafted Madagascar clove is simply wonderful, being spicy, warm and sweet. For aromatic purposes, this is likely the best choice, and for antimicrobial, choose the CO2.*

Essential Oil has the highest anti-oxidant capability of any essential oil, perhaps one of the
highest known for a food or supplement (read cautions before ingesting) - it has been included in some 'longevity'
formulas for this reason.
Clove is a medium sized evergreen tree native to Indonesia. Clove buds are a widely used spice and flavor
ingredient. Our Clove Bud essential oil is made from the immature buds and is the safest type of clove oil,
but still should be use with caution (use in low dilution of 1% or less). The oil is a yellow liquid has
a spicy, warm, sweet aroma with a fresh top note.
Clove essential oil is strongly antimicrobial, antiseptic,
hemostatic and anti-inflammatory. Because of its strong anti-parasitic action, Clove is also included in Dr.
Hulda Clark's protocol for elimination of parasites from one's own digestive system (ground cloves are called
for in the recipe - though we have found the oil to also be effective). It has also been found that a 0.05%
solution of eugenol (clove oil's primary component) was sufficient to kill the tuberculosis bacillus.
Clove is also commonly used for numbing tooth pain, and may be effective in speeding the healing of mouth
and gum sores. It is included in blends for joint pain, for its analgesic and warming properties. Clove oil can also be used to assist breaking of tobacco addiction by placing a drop on the tongue
with one's finger.
To learn more about the use of all our essential oils, we encourage you to visit The Ananda Apothecary Forums, where you can post questions regarding specific applications of each oil. Questions in the forums are regularly answered by Ananda Apothecary staff, and other experienced aromatherapy practitioners.
|Apply clove essential oil topically (diluted to 1% or less in carrier
oil) or diffuse. For mouth sores or painful teeth,
apply a drop to the affected area with finger, or add one or two drops to 4 ounces of water and gargle.
Can also be consumed internally in the same fashion.
||Always test a small amount of essential oil first for sensitivity or allergic
reaction. Irritating to the skin, dilute before topical use. Clove oil can be sensitizing (repeated use on the same
area increases irritation). Can act as a blood thinner, and should be avoided if using a prescription thinner
such as Coumarin or Wafarin.
|For measuring blends using % concentrations, or for measuring fractions of milliliters, see measuring essential oils. Blends well with Basil, bergamot, cinnamon, clary sage, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, orange, peppermint, rose, rosemary and ylang ylang. Also see our aromatherapy essential oils recipes page.
|All oils from Ananda Aromatherapy are true therapeutic quality,
meaning they are produced to the highest quality standards possible. Our essential oils are
chosen for their integrity (all chemical constituents important for aromatherapy are intact), ecological
'soundness' (most are organic or wild grown), and wonderful
aromas. You may order a sample of any oil before trying larger amounts. Most samples are about .75ml, though
exotic oils such as Melissa, Rose and Jasmine are smaller, but certainly enough to enjoy their aroma!
