Cloves are an ancient remedy that caught on early – very early. The first recorded evidence of cloves being used for medicinal purposes goes back to 1721 BC in biblical Syria. Those primitive healers did not need modern science to recognize one of nature’s most potent herbs. Cloves naturally exhibit anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. This combination of attributes make them a powerful and diverse curative.
One of the most important qualities of the clove is its ability to naturally rid the body of a range of microbes, parasites, and harmful bacteria, such as:
- Various harmful viruses and bacteria
- Microorganisms that are responsible for the illnesses; malaria, tuberculosis, and cholera
- Many types of fungi, including candida and yeast
- All species of shigella, staph, and strep
- Parasites, such as scabies, and their eggs
Valued for their natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, some other remedial uses for cloves are:
- Topically, to treat toothaches
- Topically, to relieve aches and pains, such as those caused by arthritis
- To soothe and clean scrapes and bruises
- To relieve upper-respiratory infections and expectorate phlegm
