clove bud (eugenia carophyllata) essential oil
* all Living Libations ingredients are organic or wildcrafted
Extraction Method: Steam distilled
Part of Plant Distilled: Buds
Country of Origin: Madagascar
Cultivation Method: Organic
Uses: Always used diluted (1-3%) in Coconut oil, Olive oil or Honey as a culinary oil. It may also be diluted in a carrier oil such as Jojoba or Seabuckthorn. Apply diluted in the mouth or along floss for the freshest breath. Add to a diffuser with a few drops of cinnamon oil, a citrus oil, or fir oils for a warm, inviting fragrance in the home. Lovely in massage liniments with lavender too. The essential oil can be used as a culinary replacement for the dried spice, too – a little dab will do.
Extremely potent, just one drop will do!
When it comes to choosing essential oils, there's so many brands to choose from. And yes, it can be extremely confusing which brand to trust as there are so many essential oil brands that label it as "one thing" when in fact it is not 100% pure, or a combination of the 100% pure essential oil combined with synthetic fragrance oils. I hear this time and time again with certain brands. Living Libations, on the other hand, are completely transparent with all of their essential oils, ensuring they are authentic and pure and distilled only from the named plant matter. Furthermore, many distributers and marketers use terms such as “Grade A,” “therapeutic grade,” and “aroma-therapeutic grade” to describe their oils. Yet, these are words without meaning. No organisation, association, or commission monitors the purity or quality of essential oils, and there is no universal essential oil grading system in place. Be aware. Each essential oil has specific components that make it distinctive and authentic, and there are published standards defining these profiles. For over 20 years Living Libations have nurtured personal relationships with artisan distillers and family farmers around the globe so that we may secure authentic oils and extracts that are purely and fairly produced.
