Characterization of Essential Oil of Agastache Species

  title={Characterization of Essential Oil of Agastache Species},
  author={Denys J. Charles and James Edward Simon and Mark P. Widrlechner},
  journal={Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry},
A collection of 19 accessions of Agastache foeniculum (anise hyssop), A . rugosa (catnip giant hyssop), A. nepetoides (Korean mint), and putative hybrids were analyzed for essential oil content and composition by gas chromatography (GC) and GC/mass spectroscopy. There was significant variation in oil content of the different lines of Agastache spp., ranging from 0.07 to 2.73 (percent volume/dry weight) for leaves and from 0.10 to 3.00 (percent volume/dry weight) for flowers. Variation in the…

An Overview of Agastache Research
Details on the safety and uses of methylchavicol (estragole), the main constituent among the 77 compounds reported in the essential oil of Agastache, in the food industry are included and the herbal, flavoring, and medicinal uses of Agastsache per se are summarized.
β-Pinene and Limonene Enantiomers

Major essential oil constituents of Agastache spp.
The essential oils from the USDA germplasm collection of anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculwn), catnip giant hyssip (A. nepetoides) and Korean mint and putative hybrids were field-grown and harvested during full bloom and indicated a wide range in the relative concentrations of other compounds and in essential oil content.
