Plant Part

Main Constituents

The bud of a clove tree contains a significant amount of the active chemical component eugenol, which contributes to the energizing fragrance of Clove essential oil. Studies have shown that eugenol has the potential to assist the body in maintaining normal gastrointestinal motility, which is particularly helpful during times of stress when the digestive tract is not functioning properly.* Eugenol is also used in several dentistry applications, which is why the oil of clove trees is often noted for its benefits for oral care.
