Chemical composition of the essential oil of aerial parts of Artemisia nilagirica (Clarke) of western Himalaya were analyzed by GC–FID and GC–MS. The chemical constituents of essential oil composition of aerial parts of Artemisia nilagirica was dominated by artemisia ketone (55.07%), ß-Caryophyllene (6.5%), Germacrene D (5.8%), Perillene (3.2%).
