Essential oil or also known as ethreal oil is a concentrated, hydrophobic liquid that contains hundreds of aromatic compounds, organic constituents, including hormones, vitamins and other natural elements. Jasmine essential oil has a sweet and floral aroma that aids the body as anti-depressant and aphrodisiac properties. India is one of the centres of origin of jasmine. The genus Jasminum is reported to comprise of 500 species (Bailey, 1958). The chemical composition of the Jasminum nitidum [Acc.JN.1] concrete was analysed by gas chromatography- mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The major chemical components detected are 1-Pentanol, 4-methyl-2-propyl; Pentane, 3-ethyl-2,2-dimethyl-; Pentane, 2,2,3,4-tetramethyl. The result of this study showed that the GC-MS study is selective, rapid and efficient for the identification of volatile components and composition variations.
