    Clove bud oil has a sweet, rich, warm, spicy and penetrating aroma with a fruity top note and a woody base note. Highly irritant to the skin (must be diluted), clove bud oil is safer to use than clove leaf due to its lower eugenol content. It should never be used directly on the skin or in large concentrations. Clove oil lifts depression and is recommended as an inhalation when feeling weak and lethargic.

    It's excellent as an antiseptic because of the content of eugenol. It helps stimulate digestion, restores appetite and relieves flatulence. The dental value of cloves is well know, the oil has been traditionally used to relieve toothaches. Clove oil is not used in skin care except to treat infectious wounds, skin sores and leg ulcers and only by those who are experienced and know what they’re doing.

    This oils is beneficial to the digestive system, effective against diarrhea, vomiting and spasms when applied externally in massage form. Can help toothache, rheumatism, arthritis and mouth sores. Blends well with basil, cinnamon, citronella, orange and peppermint. Flash point: 200 F. 85 % Eugenol content.

    This is a strong scent. As other reviews have pointed out, it does smell like a true spice. I have not figured out how to use this yet. I would not use it alone, and I don't think I have anything that blends well with it. I imagine it should be used a little sparingly.
    Really comforting.

    This oil is rather strong. A little bit medicinal at first, but after you get a warm syrupy vibe that is mouth-watering. I get a sensation of roundness accompanied with little stings of sweet spices. I can’t help but think of those little red fish-shaped candies my grand-father gave me when I was younger. It is really comforting.

    Very true scent – smells like a concentrated version of cloves you get from the spice shop. Great for warm, cozy blends, and manly products. One of my favorites.

    Absolutely one of my favorites. Blends so beautifully with orange, makes a wonderful aroma in the diffuser. Smells like Christmas to me. Any day can feel like a holiday! I love adding just a bit of clove to most of my massage oil blends, brings a nice, warm feel and smell. Will not be without this one.
    Great Oil for Cold Process Soap

    As other reviewers have mentioned, this oil smells great and as you would expect much like the gum they used to make. Yum. One word of warning to those making cold process soap, and I believe this is true with all quality clove oils. This oil seems to have an extremely quick tracing and curing property. I always make my spice/clove soap after letting the lye cool to room temperature as I've lost a few batches to it's immediate trace and harden in the pot before I could get it to a mold. It's quite a site to see but who wants a 2lb pot shaped bar of soap! My spice soap is an often requested one, so it's worth the hassle; just a little care must be taken in the process.
    Can't live without this one!

    I have several clients I've gotten hooked on CG's Clove Bud Oil! This smells exactly as you would expect Clove to smell and is wonderful for perfumery, and for medicinal treatment. This oil is amazing for it's calming properties especially. I highly recommend it for any application that you can think of. I enjoy placing a small amount of it on a cotton pad and attaching it to the vent of my A/C intake in my home. It provides a beautiful scent throughout the house and everyone becomes relaxed and happy when there is tension :o) Perfect!
    I love this stuff!

    This is one of my favorite essential oils. I go through quite a lot of it. It's an amazing spicy scent that blends great with pumpkin, apple, citrus, and many other scents. I use it in several of my perfumes. It really adds lasting power to them and it doesn't take much so the bottle lasts very nicely. Love it!
    Wonderfully warm and spicy

    This is about as perfect essence of cloves as you can get. It's warm, it's spicy, it's slightly sweet, and it's AMAZINGLY delicious combined with sweet orange oil. I love using it for cleaning, especially in autumn and winter. I also put it in my homemade toothpaste for something different from the usual peppermint.
    Fresh Cloves

    This is a very sharp smell, but so are cloves. This is a great EO to blend during Christmas. If you remember the old school Clove gum from the 50's; this is very similar.

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
