1/6/22: Increased rainfall in Indonesia over the next 3 months will put pressure on farm production and yields within the region. This will be especially difficult for clove and clove derivatives. Prices on these products will continue to firm.
9/7/21: A large portion of clove production is based in Indonesia, which has continued to suffer through an extended rainy season. These weather conditions reduce oil production and place limits on the crop’s harvest season. As such, prices for all clove oils and derivatives are expected to rise over the next month.
Description of Clove Stem Oil
Similar to clove leaf oil production, Clove Stem Oil is steam-distilled during the harvesting and maintenance of clove groves. The oil is derived from the sun-dried stems of clove buds, which are often trimmed during clove tree pruning sessions, allowing farmers to keep their crops at a manageable size and reduce the danger of climbing high branches. As such, Clove Stem Oil is one of the most uniform essential oils on the market; the regions in which it is produced requires farmers to destroy all material that is not steam-distilled, making it exceedingly unlikely to undergo any experimental shifts in distillation. The aroma of Clove Stem Oil is strong and spicy, with a pleasantly warm and woody nuance. Its odor is sometimes used in "Oriental" style perfumery, as well as low cost masculine fragrances. In flavor work, the oil is primarily used in savory applications, such as meat sauces, soups, and tobacco flavorings.
Aroma & Flavor of Clove Stem Oil
Like the leaves and buds, clove stems contain a Eugenol-rich essential oil, providing a warm and spicy aroma. The oil is highly versatile and used across a variety of flavor and fragrance applications.
