Essential oil ofPerovskia scrophulariifolia


The herbal parts ofPerovskia scrophulariifolia (Labiatae) collected from Yakkabag in the Kashkadarya region of Uzbekistan in August, 1993 yielded 0.54% oil by water distillation. The oil was analyzed by GC/MS. Seventy-one components were characterized representing 95% of the oil with 1,8-cineole (11%), caryophyllene oxide (10%), camphor (9%), humulene epoxide II (7.9%), bornyl acetate (7.8%), and p-cymene (5.7%) as major constituents.
