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
  • Is high in antioxidants
  • May help protect against cancer
  • Can kill inflammation and bacteria in the mouth
  • May improve liver health

Walnuts for Brain Health

I just happened to stumble on an excellent article, “All about Nuts,” in The Epoch Times. It captured my attention, mainly because of how the walnut was compared to the brain. It said, “Walnuts not only look like bihemispheric ‘brains’ in miniature, they have been scientifically linked to better brain health.”

That’s fascinating to me! God really has a sense of humor doesn’t He. Just imagine God, when He created the walnut, how He thought to make it look like a brain!

The article goes on to say how the walnut is a good source of omega-3, and gallic acid, and vitamin E, etc.; and it gives you good heart health, and is good for blood clotting, and for the immune system, and also for anti-aging.

I have already decided to start eating walnuts on a regular basis—even though they are a little bitter tasting (as I suppose are brains). Maybe I can get a few extra years out of this 70-year-old body of mine. And maybe I can pass over the dementia disease that both of my parents had, God willing.

Eat walnuts and good health to you!
