Thomas Cherian The answer is Clove tea. Grind one tablespoon of whole cloves per cup of tea with a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle. The clove should not be completely pulverized into a powder but should be ground down to small pieces to allow for straining.
Thomas Cherian It depends on the problem. For oral problem like gum pain, topical application of Clove oil, or just chewing them near the affected area will help!
