Placing a few drops of clove oil on a cotton ball and then placing the cotton ball in a linen cupboard will not only fragrance the cupboard, but may help to keep fish moths at bay.

Origin of Clove Bud oil:

Clove buds are the sun-ripe flower buds of a short, slender evergreen tree that bears cloves for at least a century.  Believed to be native to Indonesia; now cultivated worldwide, especially in the Philippines, the Molucca Islands and Madagascar.  The main oil-producing countries are Madagascar and Indonesia.  A native of Indonesia and the Malacca Islands, the Clove is an evergreen tree that grows to about 10 meter (30 feet).

It has bright green leaves and nail-shaped rose-peach flower buds which turn, upon drying, a deep red brown. These are beaten from the tree and dried.

The Latin word 'Clavus' means nail shaped, referring to the bud. Clove was much used by the Greeks, Roman and the Chinese for its medicinal value.

The Chinese used it to ease toothache and as a breath sweetener, especially when talking to the Emperor. Clove has antiseptic properties and was use in the prevention of contagious diseases, such as the Plaque.

It was an important commodity in the spice trade. It is still much used in perfumes, mulled wines and liqueurs, love potions, dental products and, stuck in an orange as pomade, an insect repellant.

Extraction:

Clove oil is extracted from the leaves, stem and buds via steam distillation, yet it is only the clove bud oil which is used in aromatherapy, since it contains the least Eugenol. Clove buds yield 10-15%.

Chemical composition:

Eugenol, Furfurol, Caryophyllene, Eugenyl Acetate and Pinene.

BLENDS WELL WITH: 

Eucalyptus, Cinnamon, Black pepper, Ginger
