Abstract The aim of this study was to optimize the extraction of p‐menthadienol isomers and aristolone from the essential oil of Elyonurus hensii by hydrodistillation. The study of the seasonal variation in the chemical composition has shown that the plant material has been subject to a natural selection regarding the biosynthesis of the p‐menthadienol isomers: during periods of water stress, the extracts are rich in cis and trans‐p‐mentha‐1(7),8‐dien‐2‐ol and poor in cis and trans‐p‐mentha‐2,8… 


Elionurus hensii yields essential oils composed mainly of para-menthadienols in its stems and about 50 % aristo lone in its roots. These oils, which exhibit anti-microbial and anti-oxidant
