The essential oil profile of Chrysothamnus pulchellus was examined. Samples were collected from the Jornada Experimental Range in south central New Mexico and GC/MS and retention indices were used to identify 48 oil components. Sesquicineole (22.7%), β-phellandrene (14.9%), (Z)-β-ocimene (9.4%), β-pinene (8.8%), (E)-β-ocimene (6.4%), β-caryophyllene (3.3%), and d-cadinene (2.8%) were the major components of the steam distilled oil.
