The wild sample of the dwarfish palm tree (Chamaerops humilis L.) was collected in the region of Benslimane (center of Morocco) in December, 2009. The organic extract of the plant was distilled using a typical device Clevenger (European Pharmacopoeia). The obtained essential oil was analyzed by GC-MS. The obtained yield is 0.40%, with a total of forty compounds. The main components of this oil are (E)-β-ocimene (39,36%) Cyclobutane, 1,2-bis(1-methylethenyl)-, trans- (4,51%), Cyclohexanone, 5-methyl-2-(1-methylethylidene) (4,17%) . We consider ourselves the first ones who analyzed this essential oil of this plant and found this number of constituent.
