Aromatically softer and sweeter than its distilled cousin, this new CO2 Select extract is an aromatic delight. Less assertive aromatically than the distilled oil, I think it will be wonderful in blends.... playing well with other oils, rather than trying to move in and take over.

The CO2 extracted oil is higher in anti-oxidants than is the distilled oil, because of the higher level of eugenol acetate.  I am reminnded by Mark Webb, of, that the CO2 Select Clove Bud Extraction will be milder and less aggressive if used topically than its steam distilled counterpart because of it's much higher level of the anti-inflammatory component beta - carophyllene.  If one were to use clove in a blend for oral care, this would obviously be a  superior pain reliever.

Clove makes a wonderful addition to a germkilling diffuser blend or room spray. It has traditionally been used *very cautiously* to numb the pain of a toothache.

For topical use, it should be used at very low dilutions, below 0.75%. It is a severe skin and mucous membrane irritant. It will bring both antibacterial and anti-oxidant power to tooth paste muxtures but should be used at extremely weak dilutions. In food flavoring its recommended level is 20 parts per million.

Avoid use during pregnancy or lactation, do not use on children.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 3 to 4 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
