The History of Clove Buds

Clove is an evergreen tree that is native to Indonesia and is mostly grown for its aromatic flowers. Clove essential oil has been used in traditional medicine mainly as a pain reliever in dental care and in the treatment of burns and wounds.

The island of Zanzibar in Tanzania is the world’s biggest producer of cloves. Other top producers include Indonesia and Madagascar. Unlike most other spices, clove can be grown throughout the entire year, which has given native tribes that use it a distinct advantage over other cultures because the health benefits can be enjoyed year round.
