The volatile oils, prepared by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts of three patches of Jasonia montana (vahl.) collected in May, August and November were subjected separately to GC/Ms analysis. Camphor, endoborneol, endobornyl acetate, intermedeol, 1, 8-cineole, 1-α-terpineol, and α-pinene, represented the major components. Also saponifiable and unsaponifiable matters were subjected to GLC analysis. Seventeen hydrocarbons, two sterols and eighteen fatty acids were identified, through GLC technique adopted.
