I caught curios about Clove Oil and was reading on a Vermont Soap site, where Clove Oil was used to disinfect medical instruments in the Civil War. I have been looking for a while now and not found what I am looking for. How often was this used? I figured it would be used more for sores and wounds, but I read elsewhere, because of a toxic effect, it was not always good to use.
Any of you all know anymore about this? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
