The hydrodistilled volatile oil from aerial parts of Salvia compressa and Logochilus macranthus were analyzed by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique. Eight components of the oil of S.compressa were characterized , representing 97.46% of the total components detected. The major constituent were identified as α-Pinen (70.93%), Borneol (7.1%), and Camphen(5.92%). The oil of L.macranthus was characterized by higher amount of caryophyllene oxide (17.52%), Humulene epoxide II (11.02%) and Viridiflorol (9.32%) among the fifteen components comprising 97.46% of the total oil detected.
