Abstract The current study describes the phytochemical profile, antimicrobial, mutagenic, and antimutagenic activity of Perovskia atriplicifolia. Benth. essential oil, collected in Pakistan. The sample of essential oil was obtained from aerial parts of the plant by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. From the 18 compounds identified, the major compounds were camphor (28.91%), limonene (16.72%), α.-globulol (10.21%), trans.-caryophyllene (9.30%), and…
