Clove Leaf Essential Oil
a light non-viscous oil, steam distilled from the leaves of the clove. After extraction it generally darkens, turning from almost clear to a light brown grey. ( A comment about the pic we have on the web site....after a period the leaf oil turns darker; more like a grey)
tip For a good general purpose mildew busting spray add half teaspoon to one litre of water, shake well, and spray affected area. let dry and then wipe off the mildew
