The dried, aromatic, immature flower buds of the evergreen clove tree (Syzygium aromaticum), native to the Molucca Islands, have been used since early times as a breath sweetener; a comforter for heart, liver, stomach and bowels; a support for nausea, colic, flatulence and diarrhoea; a preventive for paralysis of the tongue, inflammation of the gums, and loosening of the teeth. Rose water flavored with cloves was a favorite eyewash.

Clove
(Syzygium aromaticum)


Plant Family

Myraceae.

Synonyms

Eugenia aromatica, E. caryophyllata, E. caryophyllus.

Description and Distribution

A slender evergreen tree with brilliant red flowers, attaining a height of about 20 feet (6 m). When dried, the flower buds turn reddy-brown and are rich in essential oil. The tree is believed to be native to Indonesia, but is extensively cultivated in other tropical countries such as the Philippines, the Molucca Islands, Madagascar and the West Indies.

Extraction Method

Steam distillation of the buds. Lower grade oils are also extracted from the leaves, stalks and stems.

Nature of the Oil

Clove bud: a pale yellow liquid. The aroma is sweet and spicy with a pleasantly sharp top-note.
Clove leaf: a dark amber liquid with a harsh dry odour.
Clove stem: a pale yellow liquid whose odour is reminiscent of clove bud oil.
The odour effect of clove bud oil is warming and stimulating; a reputed aphrodisiac.

Main Constituents

Clove oils contain an extremely high proportion of the potentially caustic eugenol.
Clove bud (the preferred oil for aromatherapy): eugenol (up to 90 per cent), eugenyl acetate, caryophyllene.
Clove leaf: eugenol (up to 90 per cent), little or no eugenyl acetate (the leaf oil is used by the chemical industry to extract eugenol).
Clove stem: eugenol (up to 95 per cent), with other minor constituents.

Properties

Analgesic, antibiotic, anti-emetic, antineuralgic, antispasmodic, antioxidant, antiseptic, disinfectant, carminative, expectorant, larvicidal, stimulant, stomachic, vermifugal.

Aromatherapeutic Support

Although some aromatherapists use clove bud oil on the skin for such as acne, athlete's foot and as an insect repellent, I would not recommend this (see 'Cautions'). However, it can be used in a vaporiser as a room scent or fumigant, or as a first-aid measure for toothache while awaiting dental treatment.

Blends Well With

Citrus essences, other spices, rose, vanilla, ylang ylang. The oil is highly odoriferous, so use sparingly.
