Furthermore, clove oil has amazing anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory & broad-spectrum antibacterial & antimicrobial properties, which can keep various diseases at bay.
Yes it’s true
Clove oil has amazing healing ability which can work wonder for our health.
But before reaching to those wonders, let’s first investigate. 

What is clove oil? :

Clove oil is extracted from Syzygium aromaticum commonly known as clove plant, which is an 8-30 m tall, small-medium sized evergreen plant, belongs to the Myrtaceae family. Most of the parts of this plant (such as leaves, flowers, and stem) have a very special kind of aroma which makes it one of the most valuable spices for centuries and considered as the oldest spice. Clove plant also has an exceptional antimicrobial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant property and, that is the reason that it has been used from many centuries for various medicinal uses as well.

Note: The antimicrobial & antioxidant property of the clove plant is higher than many fruits, vegetables, and other spices.

Clove plant is a hub of various phenolic compounds such as eugenol, eugenol acetate, gallic acid, and various other minor constituents.

But Eugenol is the main bioactive compound of this plant, which is found in concentrations ranging from 9 381.70 to 14 650.00 mg per 100 g of fresh plant material.
That’s why the oil extracted from a clove plant is also known as eugenol and, depending upon the different part of the clove plant (such as the bud, leaf, or stem) from where the oil is extracted. The concentration of eugenol generally ranges from 60% to 95%.
Therefore different parts of clove plant (such as flower buds, leaves & twigs) related to the different type of clove oil.
Based upon these different parts of clove plant (such as flower buds, leaves & twigs) clove oil is also of three types such as:

Types of Clove oil:

1.Clove Leaf oil:

It is dark brown in appearance & extracted from the steam distillation of Clove leaf. It consists of approx. 82–88% eugenol with minor constituents and, little or no eugenyl acetate.

2.Clove stem oil:

It is pale yellow in appearance & extracted from the twigs of clove plant. It consists of approx. 90–95% eugenol, with other minor constituents.

3.Clove Bud oil:

It is yellow or colorless in appearance & derived from the flower-buds of the clove plant. It consists of 60– 90% eugenol, eugenyl acetate, caryophyllene, and several other minor constituents.
As you can see in the above classification that eugenol is the major constituent with, increasing average percentages from clove bud (77.81%) to clove leaf (81.21%) and, to clove stem  (91.83%). But out of these three only in clove bud essential oil this compound eugenol is followed by eugenyl acetate (15.15%) and several other constituents, while in the clove leaf oil and clove stem oil the eugenyl acetate was detected either in very lower amounts or absent.
That’s why Clove bud oil is considered as the best quality clove oil from its other types and, it is also, most expensive from its other types.
