However, its uses extend beyond skincare, as it appears in recipes, aromatherapy, and other sources of spicy goodness. Since it is one of the more commonly known herbs lining grocery store shelves, many individuals seek to better understand its benefits and how they can employ this spice into their daily lives. With so many purposes and abilities, we gave this super spice its place among the ingredient highlights. Clove’s capabilities stretch far beyond offering a sharply sweet aroma and a stage-stealing ingredient in some of our skincare products.

Face naturals already uses it as an ingredient in our botanical skin-care products.
