Resumo: The chemical composition of both extracts and essential oils isolated from Lamiaceae (Thymus vulgaris, Plectranthus amboinicus, Satureja brownei and Origanum majorana) and Verbenaceae (Lippia origanoides and Lippia micromera) families by Distillation-Solvent Extraction (SDE), Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE), and Microwave Assisted Hidrodistillation (MWHD) was determined by Gas Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS).
