The word 'clove' comes from the Latin word clavus, meaning nail, because the shaft and head of the clove bud resembled an ancient nail. Indigenous to Indonesia and Madagascar, cloves (Eugenia caryophyllata) can be found in nature as the unopened pink flower buds of the evergreen tree. Its main chemical component, eugenol, makes it a very stimulating and energizing essential oil that can be used as a warming massage oil.
