CLOVES are an effective stimulant and aromatic for the lungs and stomach. They dispel chill and disinfect the lymphatics. Along with rock candy, they are effective in colds and cough. The volatile oil is a powerful analgesic. Cloves are mildly aphrodisiac. They are very heating and their energizing effect may be a little irritating owing to their rajasic quality.
