The essential oil analysis of Artemisia maritima (Linn.) has been done for the first time from Keylong of Lahaul & Spiti region of Himalayas. The extraction yield of A. maritima oil was 0.33% and representing 94.17% of the composition of oil. The major constituents of the oil were as follow: Eucalyptol (23.2%); Camphor (20.7%); Borneol (13.7%); Bornyl acetate (13.2%) and Germacrene-D (2.0%). The present study describes the phytochemical profile and antimicrobial activity of essential oil of A. maritima. Essential oil showed maximum zone of inhibition and minimal inhibition concentration against Bacillus subtilis (MTCC-2451) and Pseudomonas fluorescence (MTCC-664) bacterial strains.
