Some natural dentists use clove to pack cavities or root canals when the patient needs to come back to finish their dental work.

Aromatic Scent:
Clove Bud Essential Oil smells spicy and rich like actual cloves.

History:
The word clove comes from the Latin word clavus, meaning nail, since the shaft and head of the clove bud resembles a nail. Cloves and nutmeg were among the most precious of items of Europe of the 16th and 17th centuries, and they were worth more than their weight in gold.

Clove Bud Oil can cause sensitization in some individuals and should be used in dilution.
It should also be avoided during pregnancy.
