We don't provide any packaging, so you must bring your own container. If you know the exact weight you need, please select "by weight (g)" and enter the number of grams. Alternatively, you can choose to bring your container and simply "fill it up" or fill it "half full" etc. Since all containers vary in size, if you choose one of these options we'll weigh and price your order when you collect it. Your selection helps us estimate how much to bring with us.

Clove Bud Whole Organic
Beyond its medicinal applications, Clove buds are used widely in African, Asian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking, appearing in savoury curries, marinades and sweet fruit desserts. Clove also appears in many spice mixes used for baking, and is often found in hot drinks, with lemon and sugar. In South and Central America, Cloves are used alongside Cumin and Cinnamon to flavour a range of dishes, including milk puddings, and are popular in Mexican cuisine.
Part of the Myrtaceae (myrtle) family – which also includes Allspice, Eucalyptus and Guava – Clove has traditionally been used in oil form to provide relief from dental pain and for the treatment of burns and wounds.
