ABSTRACT


The essential oil (EO) was obtained by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts of Lepechiniaradula Benth Epling (Lamiaceae) from Ecuador. Thirty-four compounds accounting to 93.4% of the total oil were identified. The main constituents of the essential oil were δ-3-carene (19.9%), β-pinene (17.0%), (E)-β-caryophyllene (9.7%) and (E-E)-α-farnesene (9.4%). The essential oil of L.radula possessed strong antifungal activity against Trichophytonrubrum (ATCC® 28188) and Trichophytonmentagrophytes (ATCC® 28185).
