Psidium guajava L. (Myrtaceae) has been used traditionally against gastrointestinal disturbances and respiratory ailments. The chemical composition of the essential oil of both leaves and fruits were elucidated by gas–liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (GLC/MS). Forty-five and forty-two compounds, accounting for 93.7% and 89.7% of the fruit and leaf oil, were identified, respectively.
