The chemical composition of the Helichrysum arenarium inflorescence oil obtained by hydrodistillation was examined by GC and GC/MS. Twenty-four components were identified in the oil. The characteristic volatile constituents were: linalool (1.7%), anethole (3.2%), carvacrol (3.6%) and α-muurolol (1.3%). It was established that the oil contained aliphatic acids (34.6%) and their esters (28.5 %), further aromatic compounds (10.2%) in significant quantity, beside the typical volatile terpene components with respect of composition of other Helichrysum species.
