Cloves, the dried flower buds of the Syzygium aromaticum tree, are used as a popular spice known for its versatility, strong taste, and pungent aroma. While you may have heard that cloves are effective in reducing tooth pain and regulating blood sugar, their health benefits go far beyond that.

Read below to discover the impressive, research-backed sexual benefits of cloves to spice up your sex life!

Sexual Benefits Of Cloves For Men

Following are some of the evidence-based benefits of cloves for sexual health and wellness:

  • Cloves For Sexual Health: Cloves have been used as an aphrodisiac for centuries. In Unani medicine, cloves are considered to be a natural herbal remedy for the treatment of sexual disorders in men. According to research, administration of 50% ethanolic extract of clove showed promising aphrodisiac effects, improving the sexual activity and behaviors of male albino rats that underwent this treatment. It was also noted that no apparent adverse side effects of this treatment, such as gastric ulceration, were noted in the test subjects. This shows that cloves have the potential to support sexual function in males. Additionally, they may be effective if used as a sexual invigorator and a safe herbal remedy for male sexual disorders.
  • Cloves For Erectile DysfunctionErectile dysfunction means an inability to achieve and maintain erections. If you have diabetes, you are at a greater risk of developing erectile dysfunction. The effect of clove essential oil and its main component, eugenol, may be beneficial in improving ED in diabetic men, according to a study. The study demonstrated that clove essential oil and its major compound, eugenol, have a positive effect on diabetes‐induced erectile dysfunction in rats.


To summarize, cloves and their oil can benefit men sexually by supporting sexual function and treating sexual disorders, such as ED, naturally. However, the available research on the sexual potential of cloves has mainly been conducted on rats. Similar studies on human subjects are needed to substantiate the validity of cloves as an aphrodisiac.

Although cloves are generally safe to use, before adding them to your diet with the goal to boost sexual health and performance, consider consulting with a sex therapist or sexologist. They can help guide you on whether or not cloves are suitable for you sexually, depending on your sexual health concerns. Moreover, they can also recommend safe ways to incorporate cloves into your diet without causing any severe side effects.
