Abstract: The essential oils of the aerial parts of Kundmannia sicula (L.) DC collectedfrom two Algerian localities, El Kala (near the coast) and Béjaia (from a meadow about 10km from the coast), were analysed by GC and GC-MS. Although both samples showedsimilar overall chemical compositions, the major components of the Béjaia sample wereidentified as being spathulenol (14.8%), caryophyllene oxide (12.2%), salvial-4(14)en-1-one (10.1%), 1,5-epoxysalvial-4(14)ene (5.2%) and germacrene D (3.2%), while in the ElKala sample the main compounds were found to be salvial-4(14)en-1-one (16.4%), 1,5-epoxysalvial-4(14)ene (6.5%), chrysanthenyl acetate (5.2%) and α-amorphene (2.9%).
