Clove gets its name from the Latin word clavus, meaning “nail.” This is a fitting name, as the buds of the clove resemble small tacks or nails.

Plant Description

Where does Clove oil come from? Clove oil comes from the flower buds of an evergreen tree. Requiring a tropical, humid environment, the clove tree produces flower buds, and Clove oil is created out of the unopened or dried flower buds. Clove trees have been useful for centuries for cooking, perfumes, and other aromatic uses. Originally hailing from Southeast Asia, the clove tree, or Eugenia caryophyllata, can live up to 100 years and is a member of the myrtle family whose leaves, flowers, and buds are highly aromatic—making it useful for essential oil production.

Chemistry of Clove Essential Oil

Main Chemical Component: Eugenol

The bud of a clove tree contains a significant amount of the active chemical component eugenol, which contributes to the energizing fragrance of Clove oil. Studies have shown that eugenol has the potential to assist the body in maintaining normal gastrointestinal motility, which is particularly helpful during times of stress when the digestive tract is not functioning properly.* Eugenol is also used in several dentistry applications, which is why the oil from clove buds is often noted for its benefits for oral care.
