Is Clove Bud Oil The Right Thing?

    I'm trying to get some things together as a bit of a first aid/emergency kit.

    I was passing a health food shop and they had "clove bud" oil in the aromatherapy/essential oils section.

    Is this the right thing when people talk about clove oil? Or is there a different product I should be looking for?

    a euthanasia tool for a first aide/E-kit seems ironic, but yes i think its the same stuff, but since i dont use it i cant say with assurance. a cup of water placed in the freezer works superb for euthanasia

    The one I have (and have had to use) is from Now Essential Oils.
    Bottle says it's steam distilled from clove buds, leaves, and stems.

    Clove stem oil has the most eugenol, clove leaf the least and bud is in the middle.

    Thanks for all the info folks! I didn't buy it at the time because I wasn't sure and would have hated to buy the wrong thing and find it was ineffective! Imagine the terrible decision to euthanase a very sick friend and then find it wasn't working!!

    I will know what I'm looking at now, much appreciated indeed! :)
