Placing Cloves in Esrog

Can one put cloves in an esrog for use during Havdola?


Yes, there is no problem in doing this.

The esrog does not have kedushah. It is an object of a mitzvah, and must be treated with respect, but there is no problem of inserting cloves and using it for havdalah.

On the contrary, this is a respectful thing to do with the esrog.
