Question 

I was reading on the internet that clove oil can help you last longer in bed.

Is it true that you can use clove oil for premature ejaculation?

Clove oil is a potentially promising treatment for premature ejaculation (PE,) although there aren’t any approved products designed specifically for this use.

In certain studies, clove oil has been shown to increase the time before ejaculation without any reported side effects.

Is It Smart to Use Clove Oil to Last Longer?

Clove oil has been touted as a cure against premature ejaculation when applied to the penis.

This is due to its mild desensitizing effect, which may help men avoid overstimulation during sex, which is a common cause of PE.

How to Use Clove Oil to Treat Premature Ejaculation

The most common method on how to apply clove oil for premature ejaculation is to put a small amount on the head of the penis and wait for it to absorb.

After about 10 minutes, any remaining oil should be gently wiped off, so it doesn’t transfer to a partner.

The temporary desensitizing effect may last for roughly one hour before returning to normal.

Pros of Clove Oil Used for Premature Ejaculation

Cons of Clove Oil Premature Ejaculation

  • Not many studies available
  • May cause a tingling sensation in some people
  • May transfer to a partner
  • Has a strong herbal scent

Clove Oil Clinical Studies for Premature Ejaculation

In a study, clove oil was found to help men increase the time during sex before ejaculation.

The participants rubbed a clove oil gel on their penis 10 minutes before sex, and throughout the trial period, the majority of men using the oil lasted longer during intercourse than the placebo group.

The clove oil group’s overall sexual satisfaction rating was also improved by the end of the study, and no side effects were reported.

This is one of the most promising studies showing the potential of clove oil for treating premature ejaculation.

In another interesting study, rats were given clove oil orally and benefited from a near 50% increase in libido without any adverse effects.

This shows that clove oil may help in overall sexual satisfaction beyond ejaculation.

Alternatives to Clove Oil for Premature Ejaculation?

The main clove oil mechanism of action for premature ejaculationincludes desensitizing the penis to prevent overstimulation, and while some studies look promising, the oil is not marketed or sold specifically for the treatment of PE.

There is also a risk that the scented herbal oil may transfer to a partner and cause a tingling effect.

For an FDA-compliant alternative that has little to no transfer to partners when used as directed, lidocaine is a strong choice that is backed by numerous studies for its safety and efficacy in treating PE.

The Promescent Delay Spray and Promescent Delay Wipes are both popular products that utilize lidocaine and benzocaine to temporarily desensitize the penis and increase the duration of sex.

Promescent offers a more promising treatment for PE than clove oil due to its ease of use, non-transference, and overall safety profile.

In comparison, you have to learn on your own about how to use clove oil for premature ejaculation, which can lead to lots of trial and error about the correct dosage.

Takeaways

Clove oil, as a readily available home remedy, looks promising as a treatment option against PE, but it may be a more inconvenient method and may have unknown side effects than more mainstream treatments like Promescent.

Clove oil may work, but it requires more effort and guesswork to apply when compared to other products that also safely desensitize, don’t transfer to partners, and come packaged with the optimal dosage for effortless use.
