The essential oil of the aerial parts of Marrubium vulgare L. (Lamiaceae) obtained by hydro distillation was analyzed by GC/MS in order to determine their chemical composition. Thirty-two components in the oil of M. vulgare were identified. The GC/MS revealed the presence of carvacrol (36.28%), β-phellandrene (15.49%), carvyl acetate (11.52%) which represents the main compounds of volatile oil extracted from Marrubium vulgare fresh herb. Other important compounds as trans-caryophyllene (4.06%), linalool (3.86%), α-terpinene (3.83%),β-pinene (3.53%), trans-sabinene hydrate (3.29%), β-thujone (2.93%), 1-octen-3-ol (2.48%), 1,8-cineol (1.49%), α-Pinene (1.44%) and borneol (1.12%) were reported in Marrubium vulgare essential oil cultivated in Egypt.
