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.

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.

Addicted to Clove
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.
