The scent is invigorating and punchy and can be used to boost energy levels or to add extra potency to incense blends or ritual cups. Beware though, of its aphrodisiac powers! It is commonly used in love philtres and potions or carried in the pocket to attract a lover. Cloves offer protection and ward off evil spirits and jealousy. They also make a very potent ritual cleanse. Sometimes they are used for prosperity magic.
