In folkloric legend clove has the power to protect, call in love and financial abundance, prevent gossip, and expel evil spirits. In Ayurveda, clove is used liberally in cooking, but also as a way to support digestion, soothe nausea, to support lung health, and is thought to be a highly effective carminative. It is considered to be an energetically hot herb having a pungent taste and therefore most useful in cold or stagnant conditions. Likewise in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), clove is considered a warming herb that breaks up stagnant energy by encouraging chi (energy) flow, and is used to support the kidney, spleen, and stomach meridians.
