The steam and water distilled oils of Micromeria congesta Boiss. et Hausskn. ex Boiss. were investigated by GC and GC/MS. Forty compounds were identified making up 91.5% of the steam distilled oil and 93% of the water distilled oil. Major components of the oils were identified as piperitenone oxide (40–45%), pulegone (9.7–11.8%) and verbenone (8.3–9.4%). © 1991 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
