Info :

Clove Bud Essential Oil comes from a thin evergreen that can reach a height of 12 meters (approximately 36 feet). Long buds grow at the start of the rainy season, change color over time, and are pounded from the branches and dried. These are the cloves that are commercially available. Because the clove's shaft and head are shaped like nails, the name 'clove' derives from the Latin word clavus, which means "nail."
