Clove is the aromatic flower bud of the Syzygium aromaticum tree, native to Indonesia. Clove bud is dried and commonly used as a spice to add flavor and aroma to several foods and hot beverages. Clove Essential Oil benefits include bringing patience and persistence, cleansing the mouth, and brightening the room. It also makes a powerful cleaning agent.

At Miracle Botanicals, we offer two distillations of clove bud essential oil. One is called Clove Bud Super. It's steam distilled and only includes intact buds. There are no stems used in the distillation of this oil. Our Clove Bud Super is better for waterless diffusers because it's more astringent.

Our second clove essential oil is Co2 Extracted, which makes it a gentler alternative because it retains a small amount of the plant's viscosity. This is the extraction I would select for cleansing the mouth and for numbing painful gums.

To take advantage of clove bud essential oil benefits, we recommend trying both of them to see which one resonates the most for you.
