Cloves for Premature Ejaculation

Syzygium aromaticum

The clove is an evergreen tree. The bud of its flower was used as medicine in ancient India and China, and its use spread to Europe in the 7th and 8th centuries. Cloves are useful for improving the circulation, and can be safely used for many purposes. Cloves are also said to be good for the nerves, and can be used to help release nervous tension.

Cloves to help with premature ejaculation


  • Drink a cup or two of clove tea every day, or take powdered cloves in capsules twice a day.
  • Some sources say that you should apply a clove-based ointment directly to the penis. However, if you are planning to have sexual intercourse, your partner may object to this.

Why It Works

Although cloves are said to be effective for impotence, it is not clear yet whether they really do work for premature ejaculation. However, cloves stimulate the circulation, and can improve blood flow to all parts of the body, including the genitals. The use of cloves may help keep the flow of blood to the penis steady and consistent. Perhaps equally importantly, cloves are aromatic and the smell of cloves is soothing to the nerves. Relieving nervous tension, and promoting relaxation, may be equally important.


Cloves can cause sleepiness. Do not take clove tea or clove capsules just before driving or operating heavy machinery. Also, clove may interfere with medicines used to prevent or treat a blood clotting disorder. Cloves can irritate soft tissue, so be careful that neither you nor your partner are allergic to cloves.
