Cloves are useful for the treatment of many different health conditions, ranging from improving your digestion to clearing up your sinuses and many things in between. Cloves have astringent and antiseptic properties, making it ideal for tackling gum diseases, as they are often associated with infections and bleeding of the capillaries and blood vessels in the gums. Chewing on cloves can release some of the active ingredients directly into the gums for pain relief and a lessening of inflammating, while clove oil can also be applied directly to the gums for a more concentrated dose of antiseptic compounds.
