A new analysis by GC and GC/MS was made on a sample of ninde oil that had been produced by water and steam distillation in 1934/35 from flowers of Aeollanthus myrianthus Bak. (Lamiaceae) of Northern Zambian origin. Forty-one compounds were characterized, representing 95% of the oil with geraniol (66.0%), geranyl acetate (12.5%), geranial (4%) and geranyl formate (3.7%) as main constituents.
