I was wondering the other day when I put a koi to sleep to take a mucas microscopic test for parasite,if the clove oil perhaps can kill parasites off before you can take the scrape. What is your opinion?

I don't think you need to sedate the fish to do a scrape, only for treatments.
The answer to you parasite question is: YES
, the cloive oil will kill off the parasites.

Clove Essential Oil has the highest anti-oxidant capability of any essential oil, perhaps one of the highest known for a food or supplement (read cautions before ingesting) - it has been included in some 'longevity' formulas for this reason.
Clove is a medium sized evergreen tree native to Indonesia. Clove buds are a widely used spice and flavor ingredient. Our Clove Bud essential oil is made from the immature buds and is the safest type of clove oil, but still should be use with caution (use in low dilution of 1% or less). The oil is a yellow liquid has a spicy, warm, sweet aroma with a fresh top note.
Clove essential oil is strongly antimicrobial, antiseptic, hemostatic and anti-inflammatory. Because of its strong anti-parasitic action, Clove is also included in Dr. Hulda Clark's protocol for elimination of parasites from one's own digestive system (ground cloves are called for in the recipe - though we have found the oil to also be effective). It has also been found that a 0.05% solution of eugenol (clove oil's primary component) was sufficient to kill the tuberculosis bacillus.

Clove oil numbs nerve endings, kills parasite and fungus, and cleans wounds of bacterial debris. A natural solution to common ailments makes clove oil a popular essential oil in many countries throughout the world.
Hope this helps...
