It should be remembered that Magellan's fateful circumnavigation of the world (1519-1522) started with five ships and over 250 men. Although only one ship and 18 men returned to Spain, its cargo of about 50 tons of Laung or cloves and nutmeg was considered to have made the expedition a financial success.
Cloves are native to the Maluku Islands (or the Moluccas) in Indonesia and are commonly used as a spice. The most common use of cloves and cloves oil is to heal toothaches, stress relief, and inflammation reduction of arthritis and other inflammation. It helps as a relief to many types of pains.
Cloves or Laung have a high content of vitamins and minerals. It is believed that burning cloves such as incense brings wealth and prosperity, brings positive vibrations, and purifies the space.
