Cloves are a spice made from the flower buds of an evergreen tree called, appropriately enough, the clove tree (Syzygium aromaticum). Clove flower buds are harvested in their immature state and then dried. Whole cloves are shaped like a small, reddish-brown spike, usually around 1 centimeter in length, with a bulbous top. Cloves can use cloves whole or ground, and they have a powerful, intense flavor and aroma.
Cloves attract good luck, prosperity, keep good friends close, and stop malicious gossip. Burn to prevent the spreading of rumors or push the cloves into a red candle and burn it for the same purpose. To help keep friendships strong, make a cloth bag with seven cloves, give it to each friend. Always keep it close.
A mojo bag can have clove added for money drawing and luck for gamblers. Clove oil is added to oils for the same purpose.
