Clove Oil

Clove Oil

Clove Oil belongs to the Myrtaceae family and are scientifically called Syzygium aromaticum. Cloves are collected for their oil extracts, fresh and dried flower buds, pedicles, and leaves. Cloves and clove oil are made up of many important consituents such as volatile oils (eugenol, eugenyl acetate, and beta-caryopyllene), flavonoids (astragalin, isoquercitrin, hyperoside, quercetin-3, 4'-di-O-glycoside), tannins (ellagitanins) , and steriods (sterols, including beta-sitosterol).

Eugenol can make up to about 90% of the volatile oils. Eugenol is thought to be repsonsible for the mild anesthetic and analgesic properties of clove oil. Eugenol inhibits platelet activity as well as depresses the sensory receptors of pain by suppressing the prostaglandin biosynthesis. Clove oil also has antihistaminic and antispasmodic properties, attributed to eugenol acetate. Clove bud oil contains 60-90% eugenol, clove stem oil contains 90-95% eugenol, and clove leaf oil contains 82-88% eugenol.

Food Sources Clove Oil can cause nervous system depression, seizures, lactic acidosis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, hepatic dysfunction, and irritation to mucosal tissues. Topically, clove oil can be irritating to skin and muscosal tissue.
