Cloves- New Roots
Cloves are the rich, brown, dried, unopened flower buds of Syzygium aromaticum, an evergreen tree in the myrtle family. The name comes from the French “clou,” meaning nail. Used in China for more than 2000 years, legend has it that cloves are an aphrodisiac; although there isn’t any evidence to back this claim, we do know that clove oil is a time-honoured remedy for toothaches. Clove oil is highly antiseptic. There are many proven benefits when using cloves: it relieves tooth pain and has an antiemetic action that helps control vomiting.
This herb keeps food fresh because the main active component of cloves is eugenol, which has long been known to help kill bacteria, parasites, and viruses. By killing bacteria, eugenol helps keep meat fresh and prevents stomach upset, traveller’s diarrhea, and wound infections.
