Cloves, Clove Oil, Part 3
Reproductive System Health Maintenance
This is part 3 from these two earlier articles:
- Urgent-cloves-clove-oil-as-anti-microbial-and-anti-fungal-herbal-medicine Pt 1 of 3
- Cloves and Clove Oil as anti-microbial, anti-fungal medicine Pt 2 of 3
- Clove Oil is traditionally known to be beneficial for sexual performance and good health.
- This explains the Tremendous Benefits of Reproductive System health and maintenance provided by Cloves and clove oil for Men & Women.
Treatment of general sex health issues:
In Ayurvedic and Unani medicine, the benefits of cloves for the reproductive system are well known and because of this, cloves have been used to treat male sexual disorders for perhaps thousands of years.
Several animal studies documented the use of cloves for sex enhancement – especially the nervous stimulation and the sexual behavior boosting effects of cloves.
Cloves for premature ejaculation:
Premature ejaculation, also known as rapid ejaculation is a sexual dysfunction that occurs when a man ejaculates much sooner than he or his partner would like. Generally this occurs within the first 1 – 5 minutes of entry.
(I plan to teach techniques and information to help both genders with the many sexual health and performance concerns they have. I’m well qualified and studied in this subject material. If you’re following my blogs (click the bell icon in the lower left of your screen) you’ll be advised when all articles are published.)
One of the important clove oil benefits here is that a few studies show that clove oil also inhibits premature ejaculation.
Applying a cream with clove oil might be what both partners need to have more time together allowing the woman to naturally reach orgasm. Women generally need at least 20-minutes of “warm-up” time (kissing, massage, caressing, holding,) and perhaps another 10 – 20 minutes time after her lover has entered her. (The proper term for “warm-up time” is “Foreplay”. It sounds so cold and clinical I just don’t like that term. “Wait here, I’ll send my robot in to give you 20-minutes of foreplay.”)
Promote sex hormone production
Animal studies on the effect of cloves on sex hormone profile concluded that subcutaneous administration of clove extract, in low doses enhances sexual function by increasing the amounts of testosterone and prolactin. This characteristic indicates several benefits.
Testosterone: in men maintains correct weight, maintains muscle mass, improves mood and exercise recovery time. It is responsible for a boy’s sexual maturation and a man’s ability to become erect and continue the sexual union.
In women Testosterone is important for maintaining a healthy mood. Many women who are depressed are actually suffering from a lack of testosterone. It will, with the addition of her body producing more prolactin improve all of her reproductive system health, breast milk production, and perhaps vaginal lining thickness, elasticity, and strength.
Considered together we can recognize that the addition of clove oil or cloves as a food spice can improve the health of all of us beyond the age of 23. A combination of cloves, ginger and cinnamon may strengthen the immune system and keep us feeling lively.
Cloves are a rich source of manganese, which acts to help increase sex hormone production .
Increasing testosterone levels
It is well understood that men with higher testosterone levels have greater sexual interest and enjoy more sexual activity. In humans, cloves can enhance sexual behavior by increasing the level of testosterone.
Increases nervous stimulation
Simple nervous stimulation can go a long way in improving sexual response in both men and women. Cloves have sterols and phenols which can boost central and peripheral nervous system function and sexual response.

Prevention of STDs caused bacteria and viruses
Bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and other types of pathogens are among the most noted causes of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).
Cloves have antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties and might help with preventing or managing STDs. However, there is limited scientific laboratory study to prove this . Why is that? Generally, you don’t find animals with STD’s for lab testing. You won’t find 20,000 people willing to volunteer to have many lovers sent to them who might or might not have STD’s. Only the lab knows who is group A and who is group B. Who would volunteer for that? Consequently, we have no broad cross section of society to test.
However, we do see that a very small fraction of clove oil mixed with other plant oils will kill yeast-(fungus), many viruses and bacteria. We’re force to say it “may” help prevent spread of disease. (more about the fraction later.)
Increases sperm count and improves sperm motility
Treatment with a lower dose of clove can help improve the functioning physiology of the epididymis. The epididymis is a highly convoluted duct behind the testis, along which sperm passes to the vas deferens. The epididymis must function properly to allow for the proper and complete maturation of spermatozoa (sperm cells.)
Clove is also shown to improve the functional physiology of seminal vesicles, and overall fertility by increasing the sperm count and sperm motility . Most of seminal fluid comes from the seminal vesicles and prostate. Thus, there is reason to expect that a regular use of cloves in cooking may cause an increase of seminal fluid and bring the man greater pleasure in sexual union.
I Digress About Sexual Pleasure for a moment
(Most women say the amount of ejaculate means nothing to them and they feel no difference. Perhaps 15% says it matters to them.
But, such numbers beg many more questions about
- their age,
- how many lovers they have,
- how good these or their one lover is in bed,
- what their psychological attitude and condition is related to sex-play,
- their physical health condition,
- Was the sex play long enough or did the woman say, “I just wait for the experience to end.”
- What’s going on in that marriage? If a woman admits, My husband treats me like dirt, I don’t like him, I married for support money, sex is terrible and I hate it… well then that’s going to cause a problem with the statistics about all things sexual in their lives.
There are many more factors determining “sexual bliss.”. Some women get a phone call from “him” in the morning and anticipate dinner out and a very sexy evening. She’s waiting for that all day. By the time he comes home she’s already feeling excitement. Some women can be ready to start unbuttoning his shirt between kisses 5-minutes after the first kiss. Some must feel trust and love and some don’t care the least bit about that. Getting the perfect sexual match is difficult. Burning these factors down to solid numbers might never be possible. We all change our attitudes and desires as we age. Sometimes a woman can be so physically attractive we men nearly die just looking at her as walking art. But her speech, body language, and approach is so terribly wrong, we want nothing to do with her 5-minutes after we meet. Her body schedule, pheromones, many other considerations add up to a “yes” or a “no” about pleasurable sex.
It’s too much to pin down. The best we can do is read what many women say and other than their age we know little more. Attaching this to solid statistics and science seems a bit impossible.) We do know that in the vast majority of cases, and many reports in cultures in China and India over centuries cloves are recommended for healing, improved health and improved sexual performance.
(On the other hand, I haven’t read anything to prove that powdered elephant or rhinoceros’ tusk will restore youth or sexual interest. I think a lot of that is just ancient rumors. Lots of powders are white including drugs that kill people. Avoid them and their rumored benefits.)
Slow progression of Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have sex. It might occur due to a number of factors such as:
- oxidative stress
- limited penile blood flow
- nerve damage,
- or emotional upset,
- and other factors.
Cloves can help slow the progression of erectile dysfunction by improving blood circulation. Their antioxidant quality may extend health and youth and perhaps add years to anyone’s general good health and reproductive system interest.
Cloves are rich in Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, which can help prevent or slow the progression of Erectile dysfunction by limiting oxidative stress [3, 4]. This is of course beneficial to both genders.
Reduces chances of infertility
While there is no scientific evidence that cloves improve ovulation in women, thus reducing infertility, cloves might improve the quality of sperm cells, thus reducing the chances of infertility.
Liver related sexual dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is quite frequent among patients with liver disease. The compound eugenol, found in cloves, in low doses may help heal some liver disorders, thus limiting sexual dysfunction.
Cloves for aromatherapy:
Cloves have one of the best aromatherapy scents which might contribute to creating a strong physical attraction between men and women.
Other Health Benefits of Cloves
In addition to cloves for the reproductive functions, they have many other properties like anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, natural pain killing (also known as “anti-nociceptive”,) immunomodulatory, and anti-carcinogenic .
Cloves therefor are helpful in oral health, maintaining immunity, may prevent or manage obesity, cancer, diabetes, respiratory issues, help in digestion, maintain skin and hair health, and much more.
Precautions when using clove
Diabetics and patients with liver disorders might want to take precautions before deciding to use cloves regularly.
Pregnant and lactating women must also be cautious before taking cloves since there are no human trials on the effect of cloves on pregnant women.
It is also important that you check for possible allergens or even take an allergy test before starting to eat cloves.
A few compounds in cloves might interact with drugs too. So, it is wise to check with a pharmacist or your healthcare practitioner if you are taking any medications.
Side effects of cloves
Whole cloves have a lot of benefits, they can be toxic in higher concentrations.
Less is more in the case of cloves. While low amounts of cloves or clove extracts are thought to be helpful sexually, high doses can have adverse effects on the male reproductive system, and might aggravate liver disorders among other things.
The daily acceptable intake of cloves is 2.5 mg/ kg body weight according to the World Health Organization. Perhaps one clove mixed into food while heating it, and enjoyed daily would be a good long term dosage.
- Clove oil: About one or two drops of clove oil is sufficient.
- Clove powder: Half teaspoon clove powder can be used once or twice per day as per your requirements.
How to use clove to achieve sexual benefits?
You can incorporate cloves in a number of ways in your diet: as for examples
- Clove Tea: You can add ½ teaspoon of clove powder to boiling water, simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, and have a delicious cup of soothing clove tea.
- Clove flavored rice: Just add 4 or 5 cloves in 3 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add the resulting “clove water” to 2 cups of soaked rice and cook well as you always do.
- Pumpkin pie: Add ground cloves to your pumpkin pie for that rich spicy flavor.
- Lattes: You can also add clove powder to make spicy lattes. Coffee with cloves or clove water is a great idea for everyone, including the Latte seller.
A few other things you can do to enhance your sexual life are:
- Eat a timely and balanced diet
- Fill the nutritional gaps if any with dietary supplements
- Exercise regularly
- Practice meditation/ yoga and remove stress from your day from time to time.
Cloves are quite helpful for the sexual health of both men and women. It is an antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-nociceptive, immunomodulatory and anti-carcinogenic and helps improve libido, helps in nervous stimulation, improves sperm count, sperm motility and overall sexual system health.
However, there is limited research on the dosage and effects of cloves on humans. You might get advice from a practitioner of traditional medicine. Your medical doctor probably has no advice to offer about use of clove for sickness prevention or disease cures.
You should know – many authors write “talk to your physician” as a legal disclaimer. What you might actually get from your physician is anyone’s guess.
Cloves have many potential health benefits, including keeping blood sugar in check and helping block the growth of bacteria. One of the major notations about black fungus is that it attacks people in tropical countries (notably in India) and mostly attacks Diabetic patients. Thus, taking one or two cloves daily in your dietary regimen may prevent infection and improve your overall health. Again, we write “may” because there’s not enough solid science to prove it.
As with many healthy foods, they’re most effective when included as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
Try integrating a few servings of cloves per week into your meals. The same can be said for garlic, onion, all spice and oregano. All of these have antibiotic properties.
You can easily incorporate ground cloves into many dishes. They’ll bring a warm, distinctive flavor to desserts, curries, or chutneys.
You can also simmer whole cloves in boiling water for 5–10 minutes to make a soothing cup of clove tea.
Cloves are delicious and may provide many important health benefits.
What you’ve just seen is a summary. I have a sneaky suspicion I’ll be writing more about these subjects.
I’m sharing with you a note to Rutchel B., a nurse and friend in The Philippines:
This woman is a true hero. She has been infected with Covid-19 twice while wearing a Hazardous Materials suit caring for patients. She is still working in that clinic. I wrote to her, as I now do to all health-care practitioners;
I just saw a video that I honestly believe your head doctor and nurse should see about black fungus from a Medical Doctor, Internal Medicine Specialist. I strongly recommend your top medical management should see this and at least keep it for reference in case a patient with Black Fungus comes in. This makes horror movies look tame.

As you see it has been viewed nearly 2.5 million times. That gives me the impression that every intelligent potential patient and many doctors are already recommending it to friends.
