Originally native to the Molucca Islands, Clove is now grown in many tropical countries including Indonesia, Malaysia and Brazil.
Clove oil has antiseptic, antispasmodic, antihistamine and anthelmintic properties many of which are due to its eugenol content. The volatile oil, which contains around 85-90% eugonol is distilled from the unexpanded flower buds. It is particularly used as an anodyne in toothache and is the constituent of many dental preparations.
Found in Potter’s Slippery Elm Indigestion Relief Tablets.
