Abstract

Water-distilled oils from the leaf, cone berry, seedless cone berry, seed, and branch of Juniperus foetidissima were analyzed by GC/MS. The main components of the leaf oil were found as beta-thujone and cedrol. Sabinene was the major component in the essential oil of cone berries. Sabinene, beta-thujone, and abietal were the main components of the seed and seedless cone berry oils. In the branch oil alpha-pinene was the major component.
