Organic Eugenia Caryophyllata (Clovebud) Oil
Native to Southeast Asia, clovebud oil is distilled from an evergreen tree of the Myrtaceae family. Because the oils produced from the leaves and stems of the same tree have stronger chemical compositions than the buds, and can easily cause skin irritations, it is important differentiate. Studies have shown clovebud oil's antibacterial activity exerts considerable control over staph aureus, which is a cause of acne. It is also anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic, antiviral, antifungal and particularly effective against candida. It can also reduce cellular oxidation, inflammation and in some cases the appearance of scars.
