The essential oil of aerial parts of Phlomis ferruginea (Lamiaceae), growing wild in Southern Italy, was obtained by hydrodistillation and analysed by GC and GC-MS. 60 compounds, representing 92.3% of the oil, were identified. The major components were beta-caryophyllene (15.6%), hexadecanoic acid (12.8%), germacrene D (8.9%), caryophyllene oxide (6.7%) and alpha-thujone (5.5%). The evaluation of antimicrobial activity against some bacterial species has been tested.
