Jordan: Hi, I’m Jordan Rubin and welcome to
Ancient Medicine Today, where we teach you how to use ancient remedies to get modern
health benefits. Clove is awesome. It’s a little spice that has big benefits
and we’re going to teach you how to use clove oil. You know, clove oil has a lot of medicinal
uses due to its compound eugenol and we’re going to tell you why.  What is clove? First and foremost, clove is a little, little
fruit actually that helps eliminate acne. Clove can kill parasites, it’s very anti-microbial
on contact. Clove can help lower blood pressure, clove
helps fight cold and flu. In fact, clove should be part of almost any
cold or flu busting herbal infusion, tea or supplement. Clove can provide anti-aging benefits due
to its powerful antioxidant properties. Clove will kill or lessen the fungi or yeast
candida which causes common yeast infections.  Clove is amazing for a sore throat. Clove is used in various throat lozenges,
you can add it with honey, you can gargle with it which I do. Clove is really, really awesome. Clove also is great for tooth aches. This is probably the best benefit clove has
to offer. What I will do is I will put a drop or two
of clove oil on my toothpaste, right on my toothbrush or swish it around. Clove is great for the gums, it’s great for
the teeth in various medical remedies particularly for oral health, clove is used on tooth aches.  But let’s talk about the safety. When you use clove topically you want to dilute
it. I love using it in other oil such as coconut
oil and it’s great with honey. If you take manuka or raw honey put a drop
of clove oil in it. Maybe some cinnamon, maybe some orange, may
not even taste good, put it in your mouth it is great for a sore throat or for a flu. If taking internally, do not use clove for
more than two consecutive weeks because it kills bacteria, but can damage your good bacteria.  When you use clove take lots of probiotics
along with it, usually separated by an hour to make sure your flora is in good shape. And, this is a big one, if you love your pets
and you have pets, don’t diffuse clove oil or apply it onto pets because it can compromise
their health. A little cute kitty. I’m actually more of a dog person, but or
sheep or goat person. Anyway, that’s no matter. I don’t use cloves near them either.  Clove oil is an essential oil. If you’re going to use it internally use an
oil labeled as a dietary supplement. If you’re going to diffuse it, you can mix
it with other oils. It has an amazing aroma. It is high in eugenol, it is used medically
and traditionally to eliminate acne, kill parasites, naturally lower blood pressure,
fight colds and flu. Clove is anti-aging as the highest antioxidant
food per gram, clove kills the yeast candida, it’s great for sore throat and it is powerful
for your teeth and your gums.  Folks, clove oil is affordable. You can find it in your local health food
store, find it online, look for organic dietary supplement clove oil. You must have it on hand and you should use
it frequently. I’m Jordan Rubin for Ancient Medicine Today,
