Boenninghausenia albiflora (Hook.) Rchb. ex Meisn. (Rutaceae) is an aromatic plant, containing essential oils, and has been used traditionally as a medicine. The aims of this study were to determine the percentage of essential oil from B. albiflora leaves obtained from Eka Karya Botanic Garden Bali, as well as to understand the components of chemical constituents and its potential uses. The results showed that the leaves of B. albiflora contained 0.30% (v/w) of essential oils with the main chemical components, i.e. 1,1,3,3-tetra-tert-butyl-2-phenylsulfonylthiaguanidine (37.04%), 2-methyl-1-pentene (12.23%), cis-ocimene (9.91%), methyl-d3 3-butenyl ether (9.67%), and 4,4-di-trideuteromethyl-2-allylcyclohexanone (6.47%). Bioactive compounds contained in essential oils of leaves of B. albiflora are potential as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiinflammatory, antiproliferative, aroma therapy and natural fragrance.
