Clove Essential Oil uses,  description and origin:

Clove is probably the dominant smell in every spice store we walk into. Clove essential oil is mostly obtained from Sri Lanka although the herb is grown in most tropical areas for harvesting.

Clove essential oil is potent and must be used with caution.

Clove essential oil is a skin irritant - do not use in massage oils unless in very small quantities diluted substantially with other less caustic oils.

Clove Constituents (Clove Ingredients):

Below we list reported constituents of this Clove. This may not be complete as continuous research constantly discovers new constituents.

Eugenol: Anaesthetic, antimicrobal, disinfecting, stimulant, aromatic and anticonvulsant.

Eugenol is a Phenylpropanoid in the Phenols group. Eugenol is widely distributed in the plant kingdom.

Potentially irritant. Sensitivity should be tested before using this substance or oil on the skin.

Phenolic Ethers: Phenolic ethers on their own are irritant and toxic Phenylpropane derivatives. Where Phenolic Ethers are present in essential oils these oils must be used with care and extreme dilutions as even small amounts of phenolic ethers are toxic.

Pinene: Commonly found in Oil of Turpentine extracted from Pinus specie trees, pinene (alpha-pinene and beta-pinene) is also widely distributed in other plants. It is used for Rheumatism as a liniment but is best known by Aromatherapists and a tonic of the mucus membranes of the respiratory system. Pinene is also important for its pleasant fragrance and is believed to have diuretic properties by many.

Methyl Salicylate: An aromatic Ester from salicylic acid and methanol. It has sedative, antispasmodic  and analgesic properties good against rheumatism as a topical application but not recommended for ingestion as it is toxic in large doses.
