Belonging to the Myrtaceaefamily, Eugenia caryophyllus or clove is an evergreen tree that can grow up to 9-12 metres in height. This aromatic plant can be found in India, Indonesia, and Madagascar island. The plant bears large green leaves and flowers that are usually white in the initial phase but their colour changes as they grow older. The colour transition takes place from white to purple to crimson red, when the flowers are fully matured. The flower buds produced by this plant are profoundly aromatic and have great therapeutic value.
Ecodrop’s Organic Clove bud essential oil is sourced from organic Eugenia caryophyllus plantations in India, certified organic by the UK Soil Association. The optimal concentration of oil is present in the fully matured clove buds, which is indicated by the colour transition of flowers to crimson red. This phenomenon happens during the spring and summer seasons. Therefore, clove buds are handpicked during the summer season and left to dry. Once dried, these are sent to the distillery, where the extraction of essential oil is carried out by steam distillation.
