Clove has been used for years in dental preparations, candy, and gum for its flavor and ability to cleanse the mouth, yet it provides a myriad of benefits.
Its main chemical component, eugenol, is a strong anesthetic and works as an antiseptic to fight bacteria that may cause infections.
That is why cloves are so effective at fighting cavities and are often added to oral products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.
