GARLIC OIL CHINESE

TAGS: / / /

We have seen more and more offers for “Garlic Oil” at low prices. However, when evaluated, these products do not qualify as “Oil” failing basic tests. Quality remains a serious issue and prices remain firm for the correct quality.

CLOVE LEAF OIL & DERIVATIVES

TAGS: / / / / /

With Indonesia still not producing at a “normal” rate, prices continue to firm. These prices are expected to ease late summer as we are now in the “Dry” Season and very shortly production of oil should increase. In line with Indonesia, Madagascan oil pricing has risen. Madagascar crop should begin in August, so early Fall should see prices soften.

Garlic Oil Chinese

TAGS: / / /

A recent update from a vendor outlined a price rise in Garlic Oil due to the difficulty of processing under pollution controls. There are indications elsewhere that prices will start to soften due to current reports from the spice market of a good crop. However, there is strong demand for fresh and pollution controls and quality issues will play a large part in oil pricing and availability.

With the drought still in effect in Southern India, production has been limited. Competition from collectors and strong demand has kept prices firm. This has caused oil of questionable quality to enter the marketplace. Hopefully the upcoming monsoon season will alleviate this situation and production will return to normal.

Palmarosa Oil Indian & Geraniol ex Palmarosa

TAGS: / / / / /

The drought has disrupted this crop as well. Lack of rain in April and May did not help the situation. It is difficult to find “good” quality Palmarosa at an attractive price. Demand has forced the market to continue to firm. With the lack of Palmarosa Oil, Geraniol ex Palmarosa prices have jumped accordingly.

With harvesting of Clove delayed by the abnormally long rainy season and the one month respite due to Ramadan, little Clove Leaf Oil has been produced. Prices have firmed, including for Eugenol and Iso Eugenol. It is expected that prices will ease later on this summer into autumn.

Nutmeg Oil

TAGS: / / /

We have a report that in the growing regions of Aceh and Padang, while the rains have stopped, extremely strong winds have caused the nutmegs to fall from the trees before they ripened. Additionally, this report states that heavy flooding in Padang further disrupted the collection of fruit. There are also reports of insect infestations destroying trees. All of these are cited as the reason why Nutmeg prices have escalated.
