Organic Clove Bud Oil is a concentrated product used mainly in production of Cosmetic products and in Aromatherapy.

Produced by the steam distillation of flower buds of the plant Eugenia caryophyllata. Cloves are the unopened flower buds of small evergreen tree. The tropical tree known as Syzygium aromaticum and botanically popular as Eugenia Caryophyllus produces the commercially valuable cloves. The trees are grown in the Producer’s own organic plantation.

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. It is worth checking a sample of both to see the differences. The plant grows to a height of 12-15 meters and takes 20 years to reach full bearing and then continue to bear fruit for about 50 years. The Clove is a pretty tree with reddish tender leaves. The major spice is the unopened flower bud which is harvested along with its stem and dried in the shade. 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 authentic Oil of Clove is Clove Bud Oil with the fragrant and mellow aroma. The Sri Lankan distilled 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 conditions as well as the drying process is well scrutinized.
