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.
