Clove Uses for Good Health

When I began to think about what I could blog on today, one idea was to write on my uses of clove extract. Well, I thought about it for a while, but then dismissed the thought, thinking it was maybe too trivial. But then, as soon as I put my mask on to go into the gas station to buy a newspaper and a doughnut, as I usually do, my clove idea was suddenly revived. I had earlier dabbed a small tag on my face with a Q-tip soaked with clove extract, and surprisingly, that clove aroma had somehow filled the inside of my mask—and I was feeling good! It was a delightful experience inhaling that aroma. Suddenly, wearing a mask wasn’t half bad.

I don’t know if clove extract will do anything for skin tags, but I can definitely recommend some uses. Here goes:

1. Getting rid of oral lichen planus. A while back I had a case of this skin rash on the inside of my mouth and after a few applications of clove extract (either by dabbing it or as a mouth wash) it went away. When I reported it to my dentist, and he inspected it, he was amazed and congratulated me on thinking of it.

2. A mouth wash. Cloves will kill mouth bacteria and also will give your mouth a fresh and pleasant taste and smell. I just put a few drops in a cup and then add a little water and gargle.

3. Use as a hand wash. If you have a bad smell on your hands and want to quickly get rid of it. Just apply a few drops, add a little water and wash. Your hands will have a good smell for hours.

4. Use as a cologne. Dab some on the face, and arms.

5. For a great mask smell. Apply anywhere on the face before putting on your mask and breath the fresh smell.

6. Use in coffee or tea or any drink. I usually put about three or four drops in my tea in the morning. It adds a great aroma and taste to your palate. And it’s good for you.

Also, here are some health benefits of cloves.

  • Contains manganese (for brain health) and vitamin K
