Clove [Syzygium aromaticum]

Making its way to mainland Asia since at least the Sung dynasty, clove has been applied to Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine when the presence of pitta (fire) or heat is needed.

Oil of Clove is commonly used in Western Herbalism and dentistry to support normal pain responses in the gums and teeth.

The high amount of volatile oils it possesses are responsible for the highly aromatic characteristics and the "numbing" sensation it provides.

Clove influences the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and reproductive channels making this aromatic flower bud a powerhouse for its antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties.
