Application: Internal Topical.

Product Summary
Clove Bud has an impressive range of action against pathogens and illnesses of all kinds. Many of the plagues that scourged Europe were started by fleas carried by rats that came ashore from ships bringing spices from the East. So cloves have a share in the responsibility for plagues. With poetic justice, they were also used as a prophylactic against bubonic plague. Sponges impregnated with extract of cloves were often held beneath the noses of plague victims.

The 17th-century plague doctor wore the protective clothing of his profession - a leather gown, leather gloves, and a leather mask. The beak through which he breathed was filled with cloves, cinnamon, and other spices and aromatics. He carried a wand so that he did not have to touch his patients with his hands; he even felt their pulses with it.

There is some modern evidence that suggests cloves might have had some real medical value; one researcher has reported that oil of cloves kills the bacillus that causes typhoid.

Clove Bud is a remarkable uterine tonic; it helps tone the uterine muscles and thus prepares the mother for an easy birth physically, but also psychically since it lessens anxiety about the delivery.

Clove Bud is an excellent antiseptic, bactericide, and virucide. A mother prepared for delivery with Clove Bud has a very good chance of giving birth to a healthy infant, one better protected against post-partum infections.
