Antibacterial and antibiotic, clove understands boundaries and spiritual relationships.
Enjoying such a robust reputation for curing toothache it could be easy to overlook clove’s immaculate place in spirituality.
Just look at her leaves, arranged in pairs. She balances the need for living in our stressful reality with opening the third eye.
She strengthens weakened constitutions especially those of people who seem to gentle for this world.
Famed for her extremely potent antibacterial constituent eugenol, do not dismiss her alternative Latin name Eugenia cayophyllata, Eugenia meaning “good birth”, perhaps betraying her associations with old souls incarnated to improve our world.
A very useful oil for releasing pain from symptoms with no discernible physical cause.
