Cloves are a special herb.  Cloves have strong antimicrobial properties against bacteria and fungi.  It also has numbing properties which are not fully understood.  The end result is an herb that can be used to almost immediately ease pain (10-15 minutes) and initiate long term healing of small infections and discomforts of the mouth.

Step 1: Mix the Ingredients

Mix olive oil with powdered clove to make a fairly thick paste.
