Our Clove Leaf Essential Oil, derived from Indonesia, undergoes Steam Distillation of the leaves of the Clove tree. The slender evergreen Clove tree, native to Indonesia and the Molucca Islands, stands up to 12 meters tall with a smooth gray trunk. This oil boasts a herbaceous, sharp, burnt-woody aroma, akin to Clove Bud Essential Oil but less spicy-sweet. With historical cultivation spanning over 2000 years, the original wild trees in the Moluccas are said to produce an oil without eugenol.

use just a little

When you sniff this oil in the bottle, it's a smell with attitude, reminiscent of HP sauce or Worcestershire sauce. In the product (cold process soap in this case), it's a lot mellower, cloves with a leafy quality (imagine that). Two things should be noted. One: clove essential oils contain eugenol, which is recommended to be used in restricted amounts, so check the recommendations for the product you are making. Two: clove oils are reputed to accelerate trace, and it happened with my batch, so be prepared for that. Four stars just because of the bit of extra work and attention the product demands, and not because there is a problem with quality. ;)
