Abstract:
In the present study, some spices and herbal drugs extensively used and traded in Turkey were studied for their essential oil contents. Additionally, some of their used parts, local uses, pharmaceutical traits and ethnopharmacological uses were given. Essential oil contents of investigated spices and herbs changed in a wide range. The rates varied from 0.025% in lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.) to 18.0% in clove (Syzygium aromaticum [L.] Merr. et Perry). As a result, the drugs investigated in the present study included high amount of essential oils and the rates were mostly higher than those in the national and international standards.
