Abstract

In this study, the effect of Matricaria recutita L essential oil (MEO) on the central nervous system (CNS) of mice was investigated using some behavioral methods. Chemical profiling both by GC and GC-MS analyses of the hydrodistilled essential oil of M. recutita revealed alpha-bisabolol oxide A (28%), alpha-bisabolol oxide B (17.1%), (Z)-beta-Farnesene (15.9%) and alpha-bisabolol (6.8%) as the main components.
