Meet The Terpenes: Eugenol

Posted by Slippery Buddha Inc on

This happens to be one of my favourite terpenes of late, rare and hard to find but definitely worth a mention. As an herbalist I have always loved the medicinal properties of clove - mainly because of its content of the terpene eugenol. That spicy aroma you get from gramma's homemade apple butter or hot apple cider.  OK so why is it a favourite?
