Clove is a spice that comes from an evergreen tree in the myrtle family that is commercially cultivated in Indonesia, Madagascar, Pakistan and Zanzibar. The clove, which resembles a nail with a head, is the dried calyx of the undeveloped flower with the embryo seed attached. They are not hand-picked as many other spices are, but are beaten or shaken from the tree. Whole cloves are used in cooking, potpourri and other crafts and to make tinctures. The ground spice is primarily used in baking. It can also be combined witharrowrootfor use as a natural blusher or foundation.
