The essentials oils in Eugenia caryophylata, Thunb from Amboina Island on the bud, leaf and stem by steam distillation were isolated. Result of isolation was analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Five component were identified in the bud, leaf and stem oil. Main chemical component in the bud oil are eugenol (81.13-84.44 %), eugenyl acetate (11.60-15.02 %) and β-caryophyllene (3.45-4.60 %) respectively and eugenol (81.06-86.04 %), β-caryophyllene (11.95-16.16%), eugenyl acetate (2.02-3.05%) in leaf oil, while in stem oil eugenol (97.20-98.83%).
