Clove bud contains a significant amount of eugenol, an active chemical component that gives the essential oil its energising fragrance and a variety of benefits. Clove has been used for years in dental preparations, candy, and gum for its flavour and ability to cleanse the mouth. As a cooking spice, Clove adds a spicy flavour to any dish or dessert.
