Clove Bud essential oil is distilled from the flower buds of the Clove tree which is native to the Moluccas or Maluku Islands in Indonesia, however, it is now cultivated in many regions around the world. The tree has glossy green leaves and rosy-pink buds, which turn to fragrant red flowers and purple fruits.
Clove essential oil has been used since Victorian times to help relieve a toothache. It has strong antiseptic properties which are useful in preventing colds and flu, and it is often used in soothing, warming aromatherapy blends for joints and muscles, and as an anti-fatigue treatment. It is also a popular essential oil to use for seasonal room fragrancing at Christmas time.
Historically it is believed that the people of Penang (among the Spice Islands) were free from epidemics until the sixteenth century when Dutch conquerors destroyed the clove trees that flourished on the island. Many of the islanders died from the epidemics that followed. Clove Bud essential oil shares a lot of the therapeutic characteristics of Tea Tree oil, so regardless of whether the folklore is true, there can be no doubt of its therapeutic value.
