This Indonesian medium-sized tree has buds that produce a yellow, spicey, warm, and sweet liquid with a crisp top note. Wholesale Essential Oils' Clove Essential oil is made from immature buds, making it the safest type of Clove oil, though it should still be used in low dilutions of 1% or less. Known for its strong anti-microbial and antiseptic actions, Clove Essential oil is used in both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
