Clove is not only one of the most delightful aromatic spices used for culinary purposes, but also has incredible healing benefits. Whole cloves are actually the dried flower buds of an evergreen tree and have potent antiseptic and anti-fungal properties particularly in regards to the digestion.
Clove pacifies all three doshas in the body to varying degrees and can spark up a sluggish, weak and disinterested digestive fire or Agni. Clove can ignite the Agni without aggravating the Pitta dosha when used in moderation and aids in soothing a build up of gas or Vata in the colon.
Clove can be used to treat a variety of bacterial and fungal conditions, and is an optimum spice used to manage nausea and vomiting in Morning Sickness.
