DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION


An essential oil distilled from the fragrant leaves of the Eugenia caryophyllata tree, Clove Leaf Oil 82% Madagascar is primarily utilized to impart a spicy, slight sweet nuance to many different perfumes and soaps. Harsher and more phenolic than the typical clove bud oil, this clove leaf oil imparts an odor similar to that of burnt bread. This makes it an ideal component of dry or woody mixtures, as the peppery aroma of clove leaf works well alongside other distinctly spiced ingredients such as basil, cinnamon, and peppermint.

La Nina brought lots of rain to Indonesia. Clove leaf cannot be processed while leaves are wet. Very tight inventories left at source and production is slower than normal due to lack of raw material and COVID restrictions. Prices are firming.
