The word spice comes from the Latin word “species”, meaning “the individual make-up of a person, particularly his temperament.” In other words, it is the unique combination of characteristics that makes up every individual.

Elixir: This spice comes from the bark of the Cinchona tree. It is used as an antispasmodic, febrifuge (reduces fever) and tonic (increases strength). It is also used for headaches caused by stress and tension.
Cloves: Cloves have been used throughout history for their medicinal properties as well as their flavor and fragrance. They have a numbing sensation when tasting them alone
