The essential oil from flowering aerial parts of Nepeta depauperata Benth., an endemic Iranian plant, obtained by steam distillation was analyzed by GC/MS. The constituents were identified by their mass spectra and Kovats’ indices. Thirty-three compounds consisting 82.52% of the total components were identified from the oil obtained with a yield of 0.3%v/w. Among them, spathulenol (31.84%), beta caryophyllene (12.93%) and caryophyllene oxide (10.27%) were the major components of the oil.
