Cloves are the flower buds of the Clove tree, which are harvested by hand before hatching and dried.

From a historical point of view, the Clove is known since time immemorial in the East and the Mediterranean. The Indian epic Ramayana, probably written around 200 BC, already mentions the trade of this spice. We know that the Chinese already used it during the Han dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) for its therapeutic and culinary virtues.

Some Egyptian mummies have been found wearing a necklace of cloves around their necks.

We also know that the Clove was known to the Greeks and Romans who used it, among other things, for medical purposes.

But a recent archaeological discovery suggests that the trade of this spice in the West could have started much earlier. Indeed, a clove was found among the remains of a burned kitchen at the Mesopotamian site Terqa, located in present-day Syria and dated 1700 BC.

In Europe, the Clove is brought by the Arabs around the fourth century. One found, in France, in a Merovingian burial dating from 600 AD, a small gold box containing two Cloves as only treasure. It becomes really fashionable in the Middle Ages where it is used in particular to protect oneself from the Plague and to preserve food.

In the spiritual field, the Clove is famous for its purifying and protective virtues. It has the faculty to move away the bad energies and to purify the aura. One can use it within the framework of an exorcism or a désenvoûtement, It also has the capacity to attract the money and the attention of a person as well as to move away the médisances and the sadness.
