Clove oil owes its toothache-relieving properties to an analgesic and antibacterial compound, called Eugenol.
Eugenol is an excellent dental pain-reliever, not only because it provides immediate temporary relief from the pain, but also because it is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory; it works to alleviate dental infection-a common cause of toothache.

Undiluted clove oil, inside the mouth, can causing burning, tissue or nerve damage, and pain. In large doses, clove oil taken orally can cause vomiting, sore throat, seizure, difficulty breathing, kidney failure, or liver damage. Clove oil shouldn't be applied to broken skin. Children, pregnant or nursing women, and people with diabetes, kidney or liver disease or bleeding disorders should avoid taking clove oil.

Gord,

Sometimes you makes things not sound fun.

But I suppose the information is good to know.

It's also good for inhibiting rust on tools, thereby meeting the "everything has to be able to do at least two things in order to live on the boat" rule.

Good joke!

But, I think that's actually Babe (D. Hoffman) & Szel (L. Olivier).
