Referring to essential oil as "Clove essential oil" only means Clove Bud essential oil as it is obtained from the clove plant's flowers. Still, you need to be more careful and confirm from the supplier whether the oil is obtained from buds or from other parts of the clove plant. For centuries, some countries have been producing the clove plant and its oil, and today, Madagascar and Indonesia are the primary sources of it.
We always take full responsibility for collecting the clove plant's fresh buds and obtaining the Clove Bud essential oil through the steam distillation process. The oil is pale yellow, and its aroma is spicy, woody, and a little bit bitter but uplifting.
