The Power of Cloves


The Power of Cloves

Cloves are a highly prized medicinal spice that have been

used for centuries in treating digestive and respiratory ailments. Cloves

contain good amounts of vitamins A, C, K, and B-complex as well as minerals

such as manganese, iron, selenium, potassium, and magnesium. They also contain

powerful antiseptic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties

making them tremendously useful in helping to heal a wide variety of illnesses

and health conditions. Cloves are particularly beneficial for the digestive

tract and are great for indigestion, gas, constipation, bloating, nausea, and

countering the effects of heavy, rich food. They are excellent for relieving

muscle spasms, headaches, and nerve pain. They are also often used to disinfect

gums, teeth, kidneys, liver, skin, and bronchi. Clove oil contains eugenol

which is a powerful anesthetic and natural pain reliever and is commonly used

to help relieve toothaches and to numb gums in dentistry. Clove oil is also

beneficial for the circulatory system and is a potent platelet inhibitor which

prevents blood clots. Clove oil is also excellent for athlete’s foot and for

healing cuts, bruises, burns, rashes, and psoriasis. Essential oil of Clove is

an effective decongestant and should be used in a vaporizer, humidifier, or

aromatherapy machine to help disinfect the air and to help benefit respiratory

conditions such as sinusitis, tuberculosis, bronchitis, asthma, colds &

coughs. Cloves are often combined with other herbs to create seasonings such as

Curry Powder and Garam Masala in India, Chinese Five Spice in China, and

Worcester Sauce in Great Britain.

They are also the ideal addition to deserts, fruit salads, smoothies, and

savory dishes alike. Clove tea is helpful for strengthening the immune system

and detoxifying the body. Steep 2 tsp of whole cloves in two cups of hot water

for at least 10 minutes, sweeten with honey if desired. Cloves can be found

whole or powdered in your local supermarket or health food store. Capsules,

extract, tincture, tea, and topical oils & creams can all be found online

or at your local health food store.
