Produced by the steam distillation of the flower buds of the plant Eugenia caryophyllata. Cloves are the unopened flower buds of small evergreen trees. The tropical tree known as Syzygium aromaticum and botanically popular as Eugenia Carryophyllus produces the commercially valuable cloves. The odour, flavours and oil content are important criteria in the food industry.

Sri Lankan cloves have been found to be richer in oil than those from Indonesia. The buds and stems are dried separately, the drying process has to be carefully monitored as it is akin to a curing process, and the quality of the aroma develops during this stage.

The Sri Lankan Oil has a high demand and is renowned for superior aroma and pungency. Our Clove Bud Oil is distilled from selected raw materials from direct sources where the growing condition as well as the drying process is well scrutinized.


This product is available in 1kg to 5kg aluminium containers or 25kg HDPE containers.
