An essential oil derived from the roots or leaves of the clove plant. It is sometimes used as a muscle relaxant and as a mild analgesic (painkiller).

Clove oil is found in some sprays, lubes, and creams designed specifically for anal sex. Users should exercise care when using lubricants with analgesic ingredients; clove oil and other substances can prevent people from feeling tears, fissures, and other potentially serious medical issues that may occur during rough sex.
