Uh is it safe to swallow cloves while pregnant?



I had an awful toothache and did what I normally do for a toothache-went to the cupboard grabbed the ground cloves mixed with a few drops of water and let a q-tip sit in it for awhile and then applied it on the tooth.



I then remembered, I'm now PREGNANT and there are some things I probably shouldn't be swallowing...



Are cloves safe?? I haven't swallowed much of it, probably a half of a teaspoon or less.



:shock:

Part of the herbs to avoid during pregnancy, basil oil, clove oil, is also considered to be harmful for the mother since it is a uterine stimulant which should just be used during labor.

I don't think that little bit even if it were to be bad would do anything though.I think you just should use lots
