Cloves (Whole)


The name “Clove” originates from the Old French word clou and the Latin clavus meaning “nail” for its shape. Cloves are historically linked to healing and protection from illness. One of its most famous uses is in the pomander ball or pomme d’ambre which translates to “apple of amber.” Historically pomander balls were made from different perfumes that were worn or carried in a vase for protection against infection and bad smells.
