Abstract
Today, herbal medicine is becoming more and more popular as a safe and effective means of treatment for many different medical conditions. Herbs are often preferred because they are natural and do not put harmful chemicals into the body. Herbs are available fresh, as capsules, powders, extracts, roots, etc. Some people prefer to grow their own. Always seek advice from an expert before taking herbs as a supplement or as a health remedy. Traditional healers have long used botanicals to prevent or cure infectious diseases (Dhinahar S 2011). Cloves are the aromatic dried flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum. Cloves are native to the Maluku islands in Indonesia and used as a spice in cuisines all over the world. Cloves are harvested primarily in Indonesia, India, Madagascar,

Objectives: This study was aimed to find out the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of five essential oils against oral pathogens and to find out the minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) and minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) of five essential oils against oral pathogens. Materials and Methods: The antimicrobial activities by detecting MIC and MBC/MFC of five essential oils such as tea tree oil, lavender oil, thyme oil, peppermint oil and eugenol oil were evaluated against four commo...

Abstract The number of methods to measure the antioxidants in botanicals, foods, nutraceuticals and other dietary supplements has increased considerably in the last decade. Clove oil is obtained by distillation of the flowers, stems and leaves of the clove tree. In the present paper, clove oil was evaluated by employing various in vitro antioxidant assay such as α,α-diphenyl-β-picryl-hydrazyl free radical (DPPH ) scavenging, 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) radical sc...

This study reports the beneficial effect of aqueous extract of dried flower buds of Syzygium aromaticum (clove) in acute and chronic inflammation. Inflammation was induced in rats by injecting carrageenan in hind paw or implanting cotton pellet in the axilla. Administration of the extract (1 g/kg body weight) inhibited the formation of oedema induced by carrageenan and decreased granuloma in cotton pellet granuloma model. The extract, when compared with the disease control, is reported to decrea...

Antifungal properties of some essential oils have been well documented. Clove oil is reported to have strong antifungal activity against many fungal species. In this study we have evaluated antifungal potential of essential oil of Syzygium aromaticum (L.) against some common fungal pathogens of plants and animals namely, Fusarium moniliforme NCIM 1100, Fusarium oxysporum MTCC 284, Aspergillus sp., Mucor sp., Trichophyton rubrum and Microsporum gypseum. All fungal species were found to be inhibit...

Abstract Objective To investigate three tropical plant materials – clove seeds [Syzygium aromaticum (S. aromaticum)], bitter kola fruits [Garcinia kola (G. kola)] and tobacco leaves ( Nicotiana species) as potential targeted killers of Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans), a cavity-causing bacterium (gram-positive, facultative anaerobe) that resides in a multispecies microbial community (dental plaque) for the treatment of dental caries (tooth decay). Methods Thirty one (31) teeth samples were colle...

The present work was planned to determine the median lethal doses (LD50) and to evaluate the haematological and biochemical changes, and histopathological effects of the essential oils from eucalyptus Eucalyptus globules L. and clove Eugenia caryophyllus on liver and kidney of albino rats. The LD50 was 2,334.4 and 3,597.5 mg/kg b.w. of eucalyptus and clove oils, respectively. Obtained data revealed that 1 /10 LD50 of both tested oils resulted in a significant increase in WBC counts and produced ...
