CLOVE BUD ABSOLUTE | Pure Plant Extract

  • $15.00

Pure Eugenia caryophyllata absolute from Comoros, East Africa.

An olive-green, viscous, thick liquid, clove bud absolute is bold, spicy, unyielding, intense, dare I say ‘meaty.’ It features savoury, umami notes that set it apart from the drier, terpenic essential oil. It reminds me of my beloved Worcestershire sauce (without the vinegar and garlic, of course), and that is not a bad thought at all, because this means wonderful, distinctive effects can be achieved with this unique characteristic. As a heart note, it can round off floral accords and enhance rose, carnation. It is highly diffusive and famously tenacious, so use lovingly with a light hand.”

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, Epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe and in what quantity or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
