Abstract

The essential oil of oregano (Lippia graveolens H.B.K.) was produced by steam distillation of samples collected from different locations in the State of Jalisco. A combination of physical and chromatographic analyses was used to determine the quality of the oils produced and to quantify thymol (the major component in this species). Based on thymol content (above 30%) and oil yield (above 1.8%), oregano from two out of twelve locations sampled in the northern part of the State of Jalisco has the possibility of a commercial exploitation. © 1992 Allured Publishing Corp.
