DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION


A redistilled variant of the standard clove leaf oil, Clove Leaf Redistilled is sweeter and less harsh than its unrefined counterpart. This essential oil still retains the dry and woody nuances typical of clove leaf, but also carries an odor that is much closer to traditional eugenol than other ingredients of the same quality. This makes it especially popular among pharmaceuticals, as well as perfumes and soaps, as its eugenol similarities provide a particularly phenolic quality.

Botanical Name

Eugenia caryophyllata


Aroma & Flavor
Aroma & Flavor
