(L.) Merr. and L.M. Perry Syzygium aromaticum


Clove is made from a dried flower bud of evergreen tree of Syzygium aromaticum. Although this tree is native to Malacca Island in Indonesia but cloves naturally grow in India, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Brazil and Madagascar. Over 2000 years, clove and its oil have been used in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine. In the fourth century Arab merchants brought clove blossoms to Europe. During the seventh and eighth centuries clove was used as a food preservative in Europe. Today in many homes clove is used as spice and evidences suggest that its use as a therapeutic drug against harmful organisms is going to grow.
