AbstractThe work in hand was aimed mainly to highlight the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory efficacy of the essential oils and the hydrolate of the aromatic plant Schinus molle. The findings confirmed that both extracts of the studied species involve important biological actions on the tested pathogenic germs.Â The essential oil resulted from hydro-distillation has undergone GC/MS technique analysis. 28 components were detected representing 99.98% of the total oil. The foremost components are: 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9-hexahydro-2-methoxy-3-methyl-6-6-diispropylnaphthalene 16.03%,Â Î²-phelandrene 13.17%, Î±-phelandrene 12.83%, Î´ - cadiene 6.48%, camphene 6.04%, Î²-myrcene 5.20%, Î±-pinene 5.10%, Elemol 4.74%, Î±-cadinol 4.09% presenting 73.68% of the total oil.The good miscibility of the essential oil shows the opportunity to use it in cosmetics and pharmaceutical preparations.
