Abstract

The chemotypes of Ocimum forskolei Benth and Ocimum basilicum L. growing wild in Oman have been established by 13C-NMR analyses of the vegetative and floral oils of the plants. The chemotypes, estragole for O. forskolei and linalool for O. basilicum, suggested by 13C-NMR fingerprinting were also confirmed by GC-FID and GC/ MS analyses. The oil of O. forskolei demonstrated better activities against bacteria and dermatophytes. The significance of the presence of estragole and linalool in the volatile oils of plants whose fragrances are traditionally inhaled, added to food, or rubbed on the skin are discussed.
